The back of the book lists a review snippet. For the sake of my review, I'd like to quote it here:

Comparisons to Anne Rice are inevitable, but Jefferson's writing is simultaneously tougher and more elegant. - Willamette Week

Well, folks, that about sums it up a lot of right there. Jefferson creates a world that's all too familiar. Finding similarities with Rice work? You aren't kidding! Even the writing style is a bit reminiscent of Lestat Land; everything from the birth of a vampire, to the angs...more
This story, while third in the seires, is a prequel to the other two (but needs to be read as the third). Here we go back to 1st person POV as Orfeo. A character I didn't really care for in the first book. The second he was verily absent. The only oddity that came with this one is that we see a lot of internal Orfeo that is very different from the external we get from others perspectives in the first two books. He isn't nearly as Catholic-y as he seems in those books. One of the rememberances Da...more

The third book from this highly talented writer from Portland. I personally love her style, her humour and her skill. This book gives the background of Orfeo Ricardi, and fans of hers will not be disappointed. I am still reading it but of course am highly enjoying it.
I can't give this more stars because, I don't remember reading it. I must have, since it was in storage. If you choose to get this one, John, I may give it a quick read over again before sending it on.
I am suck a sucker for Orfeo's character. Love how J.J. painted his history in this sad, tragic novel. I wish Jemiah would write more amazing characters such as Orfeo.
dark, secret, totally sexy. be prepared to be up all night with vampires and sex. Loved this book!
great rea dnot meant for small kids though. id say a adult book due to graphic sex
This book is great. Jefferson is great for anyone who likes Anne Rice's vampires.
Wants to be Interview so bad!! Never quite makes it though.
vampires and sodomy..enough said.
