I was very enthused by one of Kilpatrick's first books, the 1994 vampire novel 'Near Death,' and I've always thought it was cool that she's part of the goth scene... but for some reason, I haven't really followed her writing - I'm not sure why. Too many books, too little time!

I picked this book up at a used book store because I needed something new to read and wasn't at home. I had hopes for it because it has a very nice looking cover and was also a Canadian novel.

The book was very different and a little weird in some sense. The story evolved around the Eternal city too much that at one point you get bored of waiting for the suspense. But towards the end the story was crisp. All together, its was okay if you don't have too much expectations from the cover or the gist of the story.
This novel is literally an eco-thriller with horror/sci fi/fantasy elements, and a hint of horror, but not too gory. It's a little bit of this and that for a fair read in 3.5 days. It's around 2.5 to 3 stars.
