Natalia Lincoln is a new and exciting voice in dark fantasy/sf. I read this book straight through. I went through a "vampire stage" several years ago reading all the stuff by Chelsea Quinn Yarbro and Anne Rice until I burned out.

Besides being an entertaining read, Lincoln has enriched my vocabulary: for instance, who knew the word "armamentarium" even existed?

Not for the squeamish.

A blend of folklore, sci-fi, and fantasy makes this vampire story an unexpectedly good one. The pace is quick, and the story is full of interesting characters and other worldly settings. I read this book in two sittings, and look forward to reading more books by this author.
