Read full description of the books:
As best I can tell, The Division of the Damned is Richard Rhys Jones' first novel, and it most certainly reads that way. The writing is overly stuffy and formal, with the dialogue in particular reading unrealistically. For example, too often characters lecture other characters on what's happening, which conveniently serves as exposition for the reader as they attempt to sort through the myriad of mystical and religious legends Jones sees fit to include.
Worse though is the absolute lack of scares in the book. Despite the blurb, this reads far less like a horror than a fantasy novel, with the vampires treated more like brainless uber-soliders than bloodthirsty, intelligent creatures of the night. Jones also provides a large cast of characters, many of whom are completely interchangeable, while any that stand out do so mainly because of their nationality or religion. There is also little tension as the book comes to an end, since to my mind at least, there was no doubt how The Division of the Damned was going to play out.
All in all, Jones has crafted a story that looked good in summary but provided little in the way of thrills or chills. Whilst certainly not for me, others looking for a period-based fantasy might obtain more of a kick from it.
