The Gist: Junkie prostitute is turned into a vampire by an ex priest then spends a week knee deep in blood and sex, before her sire is killed by his Father.
Favorite Line: “…I haunted London like a bloodthirsty ghoul for hundreds of years.”
I stared to read this then ended up in tears at 3am, and unable to sleep even though I had to get up and go to work the next morning. Interestingly, the cover did not appeal to me, and I downloaded it on a whim on my way home from work. It’s choppy in some places, but a good read. I like how raw Buecheler is in describing the complicated relationship between sex and blood. The ending was not so hot (in my opinion), but that’s because I’m a helpless romantic, and like my endings full of love and hope…blah, blah soppy stuff. That said, the writing was engaging enough for me to look forward to reading the sequel.
