Read full description of the books Prisoner of Vampires:
As a child, this book SCARED me. This is probably one of the books that got me interested in the Horror genre looking back. This book didn't go for easy shock value or cheap gimmicks and its vampires were classic and scary because they were classic.
The book is aimed perfectly at the age group Nancy Garden is writing for, scary enough, not pornographic or exploitative (I'm looking at you modern vampire romance), and still writing at a level the is accessible and yet respects the reader.
This is not vampire fiction as easy wish fulfillment (I'm AGAIN looking at the vampire romance genre), but the temptations of immortality. All in all, a very good read for a young person wanting a good scare.
Read information about the authorA versatile writer, Nancy Garden has published books for children as well as for teens, nonfiction as well as fiction. But her novel Annie on My Mind, the story of two high school girls who fall in love with each other, has brought her more attention than she wanted when it was burned in front of the Kansas City School Board building in 1993 and banned from school library shelves in Olathe, Kansas, as well as other school districts. A group of high school students and their parents in Olathe had to sue the school board in federal district court in order to get the book back on the library shelves. Today the book is as controversial as ever, in spite of its being viewed by many as one of the most important books written for teens in the past forty years. In 2003 the American Library Association gave the Margaret A. Edwards Award to Nancy Garden for lifetime achievement.
