5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Vampire Story, April 1 2004
Elizabeth "lking173" (Los Angeles, CA United States) - See all my reviews
This review is from: The Night Inside (Paperback)
I am a collector of vampire novels, and after reading a few recommendations, I picked up Nancy Baker's "The Night Inside" (which by the way is also "Kiss of the Vampire)." Do not make the mistake of picking up both books like I did. It is the exact same story.
Ardeth is a graduate student living at college. She just finished a project with two of her friends (also graduate students). She is saddened when one of her friends and ex-lover dies, but that sadness also becomes wariness when the second person she was working on the project with also dies. Also, she felt at one point that she was being followed.
Her fears become reality, when while jogging on campus one morning, she is literally snatched by two men, thrown in a van, and knocked out. When Ardeth recovers she finds herself locked in a cell, with a vampire in another cell next door named Dimitri Rozokov. She finds out that she has been kidnapped to be his food source. She is terrified of the vampire, but as time passes, she realizes she is even more horrified by her sadistic kidnappers (who are making x-rated, snuff films for profit using the vampire).
As the days pass, Ardeth begins to see the vampire Dimitri as a person, and as they get closer, she realizes her and Dimitri will have to come up with a plan to outsmart the kidnappers. But just how far is she willing to go to live?
I don't want to give too much away, but this is an excellent, excellent story. I really enjoyed all of the characters. I would highly recommend.
(Also as this is an out of print book, you can find used copies on and other used book sites. Definitely worth buying

4.0 out of 5 stars an enjoyable vampire novel, Dec 22 2000
This review is from: Covenant (Hardcover)
This was an enjoyable vampire novel. Baker does a good job of building up an empathy with Ardith, the novel's central character. Via a set of nasty circumstances she goes from being a conventional-contientious student to a wild-child vampire and sets out for revenge on the people who did this to her. This is the last thing she had ever expected to happen to her - and would never have happened when she was "good". This is a novel I'm glad I've read and I'm looking forward to the sequel "blood and chrysanthemums".
