    Volume 2<br />Started with the continuation of the story of the Bannerworth's having to flee their home after being tormented out of it by Varney. Varney though had his own trouble continually being hunted. I think my favourite part of the volume was when he was being hunted by the villagers fleeing from rooftop to rooftop and eventually ended up at the doorstep of Flora, the girl who he attacked in the begining. In the end she saved his life twice. At that point he was at his most vulnerable and human.

In the end she saved his life twice. At that point he was at his most vulnerable and human. The book diverged shortly after this with the introduction of a "Wealthy foreign baron" who was quite obviously Varney in disguise. It was a little annoying that the pretext of him being the Baron was kept up for so long. Towards the end of the second volume it felt like it kinda lost pace, with the exception of one very good scene of a vampire rising from the dead in a charnel house there was very little horror or gothic. The focus instead shifted to humour and the evils of women who are only interested in money. Who sell their daughters into marriage and have no feeling for their happiness or well being. It just started to all drag on a bit. Still so far this is probably the second best story about Vampires that I've ever read. I'm greatly enjoying the style and the dramaticness of it all. There is real tension in the writing and Rymer writes some incredibly spooky scenes.

    Another Volume of the antics and situations that Varney the Vampyre seems to get into this picks up where Volume one ended. Another great written manuscript by Thomas Preskett Prest. I loved it a must read for vampyre genre lovers. This is the story that led to the rest and current vampyre themed books movies and more. I Loved it!!!!

    After finishing this book one year and one month after starting it, this is my conclusion: A beautifully written mess! No plot, no point, no ending. If you have time for 96 chapters of confusion, then please, take up this book. And if you do not, then "You're welcome".

    Even less about Varney--or vampires, for that matter--than the previous installment. It was educational to get a sense what this book is about, but I doubt I'll suffer the remaining third part.
