As always, Prieto brings the dark completely entangled in the light. In this book, though, there is not a whole lot of light left to strangle. But its brightest source is Collin, our reporter.

Beautifully written with a haunting setting and enthralling characters. Suspense, dark pasts, hot sex, and a serial killer. Prieto does an excellent job of pulling the readers into her world and keeping them there.

Prieto brought the Victorian era to life, truly showing her stuff in making Collin a man of h

This is an old fashioned vampire novel. Lately vampires are become dream lover type and reader forgot that they are actually deadly creature. Creature of the night and shadows. And the Victorian London is a place that suits them, since even during the day, the reader has always the impression that the sky is cloudy and the weather is rainy. There is seldom full day light, and even if you click on the gaslight, nevertheless the rooms are always full of shadows. People also are more enthralling, s ...more
Can one be predestined to be a vampire? Why do some vampires turn out better than others? Collin is a reporter who writes about the darkest parts of human society, scandals, sex, and murder. A story on men who love other men seems to elude his journalistic control, and whatever objectivity he may have had. As a gay man in Victorian London, Collin cannot explore his own desires.

He lives on the darkness of others, his stories destroy lives. Even if the destruction is just, as in the case of a dre
I really enjoyed reading this. Luisa Prieto's writing is just amazing. Sucks me right in and grips me until the ending.

Collin is a reporter in London who covered a child serial killer story and now is disgusted by London’s fascination with some men who were caught in a gay brothel (of course he’s gay). His friends decide to cheer him up by taking him to a het brothel. He manages to slip out and when one of his friends pursues him leaps in a cab with a handsome stranger. He ends up at the guy’s hotel and after some hot smexin’ he realizes the guy is a vampire (sucking his blood was a clue I suppose) and get so ca ...more
It started out so well and was so promising, but then it just sort of... ended. It was quite well written, and had a sort of Anne Rice vibe; it actually reminded me greatly of some of the Anne Rice fanfiction that used to be around before it got yanked off the net.
But anyway, it was too short to be truly enjoyable, and the ending was just unsatisfying.
I enjoyed every moment of the book. It was shorter than what I'd hoped for, but I soaked up each and every page. Luisa's ability to create such vivid and well rounded characters in such a short span is very impressive.
Not much of a plot. Boring

After some brainstorming, I've decided to do a webcomic. Please check it out. It's chock full of my awesome writing and stick figure drawing.
