Here are two mesmerizing novels by one of SF's fastest rising stars:

Sabella, or the Blood Stone.
Love was a luxury she could not afford. The huntress does not love her prey, after all, and Sabella Quey's need to hunt was overpowering.
It had been so ever since the day she had wandered into the ruins on Novo Mars and found the strange gem. The thirst for blood had grown in h

I admit it, I bought the book for the cover, however I ended up liking the book.

Две книги, наглед нямащи общо една с друга – приказка за духове и убийци на призраци във фентъзийно безвремие и фантастична история за извънземни вампири, стоящи в основата на марсианско равновесие в далечно бъдеще, без общи елементи, герои или дори стил, освен обичайната класа на думите на Танит Ли. И все пак духът излязъл от бутилката, независимо дали дебнещ по прашния път край мътно блато, или в междугалактическа кръчма на тераформирана планета, те хваща и води в света на немъртвите и умрелит ...more

I read "Kill the Dead" years ago and here are my notes: Boring,confusing ending,telling instead of showing, bad hero.

I tried to read "Sabella, or The Blood Stone" with my wife and after about 65 pages (midway) we were bored to tears. The vampire in a sci-fi setting was kind of jarring and it was just really "emo" and slow.

Tanith Lee is one of my favorite authors, but it's funny because her books/stories are usually either completely amazing or utterly terrible and painful to read. If you want to

This book was alright. Actually, it's two smaller books in one volume. I didn't feel particularly wowed by either, although I picked it up because the 2nd book (Kill the Dead) was supposed to have a knock-your-socks-off twist near the end. Unfortunately, I sort of lost interest about halfway through, and only skimmed the rest of the book. Ghost stories with obvious, in-your-face ghosts don't really do anything for me.

This would probably be a better book for someone who likes the paranormal genre
I really didn't get into this book, and had a hard time even finishing it. I'm glad I did though, because the end surprised me.
