This book gets 5 stars for cover art, and 2.5 stars for story.

I don't think I realized this before I read it, but this is a historical. I tend not to like historicals, and for some reason (not the fault of the author, but my own brain) I couldn't get past the idea that these men were perpetually in need of a bath and it was distracting.
It is also a vampire book, which I tend to love in mainstream fiction but has been a hit or miss subgenre in m/m for me (mostly miss.)

I understand what the author

Coming primarily from a horror background, I can tell you one thing: vampires are a hard sell to any market. The thinking behind that is that the subject has been done to death, pardon the expression, and unless there is some new take, publishers are pre-disposed not to like it before they’ve even read word one. I, on the other hand, have never really subscribed to that concept. I’ve seen authors take really interesting spins and breathe new life into an old, old literary staple, and so I tend t ...more

I read a LOT of urban fantasy/romance, and vampires, like them or hate them, are pretty much a staple, along with werewolves, but strawberry's a common flavor too, doesn't mean I don't like eating a strawberry dipped in chocolate, like this book. I've followed Ms. Kerry's work for a while now, and every time I see something new from her, I eagerly grab it. Fact is, I have a hard time putting them down, to the point where I've missed many a bedtime telling myself "Just one more chapter". This was ...more
This lyrical tale weaves a different kind of vampire telling with a slow building romance. The horror is real and Kynan lives it nightly in his dreams. He finds welcoming respite in Aneirin's arms and together they comfort and soothe pains of the past. Though both have come from different lands, their experiences are similar - both have lived through a tragic horror that still scars and haunts.

Kynan says from the start that twice Aneirin saved him before Aneirin killed him. From a seedy pub to a
I'm going to try my hardest to restrain myself from talking about the absolutely gorgeous cover on this. I could look at Mr Hunky foreground all day.

That being said this caught me off guard in a good way, and I wouldn't be completely against picking up a different book by this author, despite the fact that it had some nasty surprises waiting for me. Not the least of which were

1) This thing is short. And when I say short, do I mean SHORT. I got this for my kindle, but even doing some adjustment
It's more 2.5 stars, but there is no such option ;-)

I had some time drinking my afternoon coffee, so I've grabbed this one and read it, cover-to-cover. Wouldn't call it a novel though, more a short story. Never the less, I liked the story enough. I'm (almost) always eager to read a good fantasy book, but this one was more an idea or a skeleton of a novel, then an actual novel. Would love to read the "full" version of this book ;-)

I didn't like the peeping hole perspective of the narrator, nor th
I think this would've rated much higher if it wasn't so short. Its really a short story, not a novel, so it suffers from some typical short story issues; not as well developed story, not enough background, little character development, rushed plot, etc. In the end, it's a pleasant, short read but only as long as you know what you're in for.

The overall story is pretty interesting and solid and the two main characters are pretty well thought out and fun to read about. It makes me wish that it was
An enjoyable read, marred by the fact that I read Kerry's "In the Shadow of the Sun" right before this one. They are essentially the same story with a different setting and POV.

If you haven't read In the Shadow of the Sun, then this won't seem as unoriginal. I do wish we'd gotten a bit more about the characters, but as a short erotic romance, it kind of works. I also caught a few typos/editing errors, but not enough to distract me from the story.

I had to give this a four. The writing was well done for first person. I felt it was slightly rushed there at the end but it a short but still very vivid.
