About this author

Verity Brown was born in Oregon but, being a Kansan at heart (her first attempt at a novel, at age 9, was titled "Tornado Summer"), has drifted in a generally eastward direction over the years. Along the way, she has collected a husband, four children, and several animals (mostly cats).

I picked up this book because vampires in Shakespearean England seemed like an incredibly awesome plot premise. And there's a lot here to like--interesting characters, rich descriptions, and a just-original-enough take on vampires to make the concept

I loved this book...for about the first two-thirds. Yeah, it could have used some light editing, but the writing was compelling enough for me to not worry about it a lot (and I'm the sort of person who DOES worry about that kind of thing).

In some ways, this book was even better than Luna Park, because more was at stake for all the characters. In other ways, it wasn't quite as good because it felt more disjointed. It also didn't help that the limited-range-of-time-travel rule in this b
