Wow. I really enjoyed reading this book. It is very rich in scenery, language, world-building and characters. It kind of reminded me of Vampires of the Scarlet Order in that it deals with a group of vampires throughout the centuries but there in lies the only similarity.

I mention this because I love books of this kind that takes vampire lore and creates a...more

Wow, this was a fascinating read! Ms. Dane created a rich, vivid, mesmerizing world filled with historical events, terrifying vampires, war, uneasy alliances, betrayal, loyalty, love and violence.

That said the Raven Dane goes to some length to explain that the vampires in this world are very definitely not human and never were.

I really enjoyed the d...more
