Ambitious in its scope and provocative in its content, the saga of the undying Count Saint-Germain is a monumental feat of the imagination.

Chelsea Quinn Yarbro's novels have powerfully captured Saint-Germain throughout his long existence, from the temples of Ancient Egypt to our present century.

Now, on the verge of the First World War, Saint-Germain accepts a top-secret as

Yet another entertaining entry in the Saint-Germain cycle, a series of more than two dozen books about a 4000-yr-old world-traveling debonair vampire. Set in England, Germany, Amsterdam and Russia from 1910-1912.

Czar Nicholas II sends our hero to visit the Czar's ailing uncle, Edward VII of England, with a proposal for England, Russia and Germany to limit arms production and sales, given the current unrest in Europe. The plot is a little far-fetched (nobody except the Czar really expects it to w

I cut my vampire fangs reading Yarbro's Saint-Germain Chronicles, back in the 80s. When I found a copy of this book on my shelf, with a bookmark stuck in it, I realized I had never finished it (after starting it almost ten years ago!), so I figured now was the time.

It was just okay. I am bored of the St. Germaine series and the previous book I read from same author was awful. I just left it on the window pane at the ice cream shop in the University District when I finished reading it.
Saint-Germain in 1910 Europe & Russia. Loved the characters in this one, especially how CQY portrayed Czar Nicholas.... and Rowena Saxon-"No-I'm-not-going-to-marry-you, Rupert!" -Pearce-Manning :-)
Second or third time I've tried to read this one, am reminded again why I quit. Is boring and quite formulaic. Yarbro's psycho-sexual-sadist villains get repetitive.
Anything with St. Germaine is a cracking good read.
