While set in the present day, the book contains some of the rich, enticing details of historical fiction - with vampires! One part road trip novel, one part vampire adventure, In the Blood sets the stage for more with great characters and twists that will leave you wanting to pick up the next book. Fans of the Sookie Stackhouse mysteries and Interview with the Vampire will enjoy this glimpse into a reimagined Marie Antoinette.

Good reading! A lot of references of histories and famous people! The lead female is a lot like me in terms of defiance and her choice of life

Most of what you know about Marie Antoinette is wrong. For starters, she was and is a vampire. The French Revolution wasn’t about taxes or food, it was about wiping out the vampires that had taken over the French nobility. The “Marie” that was beheaded was a mind-controlled double. The real Marie Antoinette is living as an antique dealer in Saint Louis, Missouri. She probably would have been okay had she stayed there.

Marie discovers that a particularly important piece of her memorabilia has come

Fin, the underappreciated, brooding immortal felt trapped and stifled in a relationship with Marie, his maker. Over the years he had started to feel more like her pet, than a companion. He loved her, resented her, even hated her. Then he met Sybill, a woman who made Fin feel, somehow, human once more. Marie was desperate to reclaim fragments of her old life, to the point she thought the gain of a small handkerchief was worth risking their secret. But it wasn't just her old life that was in dange ...more

This book is something I haven't when I had time to read haven't been able to put down. It drew me in and kept me there. I cannot wait to read the next one because I am left with so many questions. The historical element had me wanting more to delve into. I am just a historical geek and the supernatural element was a great part of the story. If you are looking for a book that will capture your imagination then try this. I have already recommended it to people and that was before I finished. ...more

Marie Antoinette is a vampire living in the modern day Central West End, St Louis. Fun and imaginative
Craig Watson
The characters were good, but the first person perspective of them wasn't always the best as it was hard to tell the difference between them at times. If they had been more of a climax at the end the book would have had a better rating. ...more
