LGBT CHARITABLE FUNDRAISING PROJECT 2017:
https://www.canadahelps.org/en/pages/...

By profession, I am a hematopathologist, a laboratory physician who specializes in diagnosis of diseases of blood, bone marrow, and lymph nodes, such as leukemia and lymphoma. In my off time, I write LGBT Fantasy and Scifi books. Yes, I realize the irony that I write about vampires. ;)

Note: While each series conforms to standard conventions regarding the romance genre overall, I do not guarantee a happy ending to any individual book within the series.

It had a number of humorous and bizarre elements, but in the end it felt incomplete. I seemed as if the internal plot/character arcs of the book did not reach a satisfactory level of conclusion, relying on subsequent books in the series for fulfillme ...more

Well, that was unexpected. I knew from the first page that this was going to be an unpleasant departure from Mr. Klune's usual oeuvre. But I kept reading, because I liked the atmospheric quality of the writing. Perhaps that was a mistake.

Not a bad little mystery with psychic touches. The plot was well constructed, and the identity of the killer was obscure but plausible. It was a little heavy on the backstory once Finn was introduced as a character, but otherwise a nice read.

“Grabbing Jeremy's lapels, Nick pulled him closer, grasping him not with fingers but with claws. His face inches away from Jeremy's, his eyes burning red, his fangs sharp and gleaming, he screamed, "BECAUSE YOU'RE MINE! NO ONE THREATENS WHAT'S MINE AND WALKS AWAY!" His growl rumbled through the room, ratcheting down into the subsonic. "I WILL BURN DOWN WHOLE ARMIES BEFORE I LET THEM TAKE YOU FROM ME!"...

"Jesus, big brother," said Toby. "I know vampires are territorial when it comes to their mates, but you're way out in front for the possessive macho bullshit award."

Nick sighed. "I know. I've got to work on that.”
Arshad Ahsanuddin, Sunset

“Mortals die, Nick. It's what they do." Lorcan's eyes bored into him. "To attach yourself to them is to watch them grow old and feeble while you remain forever young. You will see their love turn to envy, then to resentment, then hatred, as they are forced to confront their own mortality reflected in your eyes.”
Arshad Ahsanuddin, Sunset

“I am a Child of the Twilight. I hold the line against the Darkness, from the setting of the sun to the dawning of a new day. I live for the Light, I die for the Light. My eyes are open, and I am not afraid.”
Arshad Ahsanuddin, Sunrise

“Writing a book is an adventure. To begin with it is a toy and an amusement. Then it becomes a mistress, then it becomes a master, then it becomes a tyrant. The last phase is that just as you are about to be reconciled to your servitude, you kill the monster and fling him to the public.”
