Format: Paperback
I read this book when it was originally published back in the 90's and loved it. My opinion has not changed over the intervening years. The plot was imaginative and not a sappy romance like many contemporary works in the same genre. I found the eroticism reminiscent of authors like Robin Schone; liberating women, not subjugating them into neat little boxes of WASP morality. Highly recommended!

This book lacks a decent story-line, the plot is unimaginative and not detailed enough and too fast-paced, the sex scenes are crude, there is no in dept study of any character... I'm an Anne Rice & Laurell Hamilton fan so I'm pretty open-minded when it comes to Vamp stories. I'm sorry but this is the worse book I've read on the subject

HASH(0xa8edc114) out of 5 stars Not what I expected, but still entertaining Dec 18 2004
By Erin - Published on
Format: Paperback
I don't know whether I'd call this one horror or not. There's not much scaring going on, and almost everyone in the story gets along, except for the antagonist, who is mainly seen through toward the end. Sure, there are horrifying scenes, like with the sadistic, snake obsessed, drug dealer, but overall this one reads light and comical.

The main characters are easily latched on to. They seem real and although they pity themselves a bit too much at times, their personalities are amusing and deep.

The thing that wins this novel over from stale to something- you -cant -put -down- to- save- your- life is that there are surprises along the way that jarred me to the floor. Things about one of the protagonists I would have never imagined. Some of it was predictable, sure, but for the most part: complete disbelief.

In the end, I wouldnt pay a lot of money for it, but it was still worth reading and, when read, kept my attention big time.

HASH(0xa8edc51c) out of 5 stars Fast paced novel with a new take on the vampire! Good read! Jan. 13 1996
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
This novel will grab you from the opening scene and never let you go. The plot moves swiftly along surprising twists as the street kid and the Byron-loving undead hero chase across two countries. A great read

HASH(0xa8edc348) out of 5 stars Read the series but it did get repetetive... June 23 2012
By weewilkins - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I started out with a paperback copy of Vol. 3 (of 4) in this series of vampire stories by Nancy Kilpatrick. I picked it up in a grocery store for 99 cents and took it with me to Mexico. After reading vol. 3, I knew I wouldn't be able to find the other volumes in the series easily so purchased them for my Kindle Fire. Each volume describes in detail the different members of a group of vampires who have found each other despite their nature to be solitary souls. They form a connected, rather bizarre group that is protective of each other. There are parts in the books that are quite sexually graphic...I have not read the Twilight series so don't know how this compares. As a Canadian, I was interested in reading these books by a CDN female writer and because they partly based in Montreal. I did re-read vol. 3 in after reading Vol. 1 and 2 and it made more sense in series. These were "beach" reads...not intended to be read for their great literary value. They were entertaining and kept me interested...but became almost too repetitive over the series so I was glad that Kilpatrick stopped at Vol. 4. Read for entertainment only...the series did entertain.

HASH(0xa8edc5e8) out of 5 stars The book was fast-paced, and much like Anne Rice Aug. 3 1997

Format: Paperback
I enjoyed this book from the beginning! I read the whole thing in about a day and 1/2. I just couldn't put it down. Kilpatrick has a way with words, and I intend on looking into more Kilpatrick!

HASH(0xa8edc990) out of 5 stars Most interesting and fast paced tale June 25 2001
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
This was one of the most interesting and fast paced vampire tales I've read lately. Granted, the heroine can be a little anoying, but not always... very imaginative story. Keeps your interest.
