Absoloutely Brilliant! I was given the first book by the rep that we meet with at the store. And while I normally stick to reading and reviewing Young Adult and Children's books for the most part (being a childrens specialist bookseller), The first book captivated me so much that I rushed out to buy the second! And in my opinion it is actually better than the first. The storyline is stronger and you feel the main characters pain and misery as they are trying to overcome a very formiddable oppone...more
I'm not a big fan or reader of horror (which this definitely falls under), but as an outside genre reader, I thought that there was too much gut-and-gore type horror. Demons rip out body parts all over the place, which isn't scary... just plain gross. It was more thrilling to hear the thoughts of the villain, whose path to insanity is as easy as the path to Hell.

One of the reviews on the back of this book said that it was "funny and original." For a vampire book, it certainly original, but it wa...more

Of Saints and Sinners, Angel Hearts and Devil Souls. The Shadow Saga. As the vampires of the world prepare to do battle with humanity, and each other, the possibility of a new life for those that remain is what spurs them on in their bloody quest...

I couldn't find "Of Saints and Sinners" in goodreads but it's part of the saga. If you're interested, you really should find it.

Amazingly, this novel was even better than the first in the series which I loved. I read this one first and went back to re-read it after getting and reading the first in this series. It continues the story of vampires battling their brainwashing at the hands of the Catholic church, the supernatural minions of the church, and each other.

This was the book that hooked me into the series and started my fascination with vampires in general. The characters are real and full of depth, the story will suck you in and hold you tight and will stay with you long past the last page. Years later this still remains one of my most favored books!

I really liked the world and vampire mythos the author created, but this series is not for the faint of heart or weak of stomach. Sex and gore (sometimes at the same time) are not only present but described in what I consider to be an unnecessary level of detail.
Often doesn't matter if series books are read out of order, but now that I have started #1, I realize my enjoyment of this one suffered greatly from not having the background. But I enjoyed it enough to start #1, Of Saints and Shadows.
Loved all of the twists and turns through this book! The author pulls no punches with characters, thoroughly enjoyed it! Diving into the third book tonight!
A quick read, short on vocabulary, but a good plot. Has the feel of a vampire thriller. Good for reading on the run and travel, or easy thinking.
If you can't say something nice...I was tickled by the Lovecraft inspired demon names. And I like the gargoyle on the cover.
not as good as the first but I love this series all the same. brings me to tears almost every time.
Not my favorite of the series, but still needed to move on to the next book.
Golden has an interesting take on the origin of vampires.
It was okay. Didn't keep my attention very well.

This may be the worst book I've ever read.
Really enjoyed reading this book.
