I don't know if I really liked this book. It dealt with a lot of issues like, child abuse, molestation, addiction, incest, and sexuallity. It didn't end on a good note. It's message seems like there wasn't hope of recovery or a happy life if you suffered and survived through these things. It was a strange story. Plenty of action though, and you can take that how you will...

I liked this imaginative take on the vampire genre. I found the writing to be of Rusch usual high standard and although the subject matter was somewhat dark the characters shine through. Enjoyable and I felt original take on a very old and overwritten genre - worth a read if you like vampire books or just good character writing.

Horror novel linking vampirism with child abuse. Very different, and it works surprisingly well.

The book was ok but it was just so damn SLOW to get anywhere. First you had Cammie finding that she is in the dark over vampires having children-so she asks her pa

It was good. I wouldn't call it Urban Fantasy though. I'd call it Horror. The vampires are the villains of this story. They're not romantic sex symbols. There is a lot of taboo sex which at first I was eating up like a kid in a candy shop. I don't usually read such so at first it was titillating. After a while I was just straight EWE!!! But I kept reading. By that time I was hooked into the story. It's not Charlaine Harris or even the darker written Laurell K. Hamilton. It's more Bram Stoker. Th ...more
