    Great vamp novel

    Agyar Janos has changed his name to John Agyar to fit in better in the Midwestern United States. He has lived over a century and expects to survive many more as vampires can live forever. Currently, John has moved into a house in Lakota, Ohio, where he shares the residence and has formed a cautious friendship with Jim the ghost................................. John uses local artist Jill Quarrier as his blood supply against the will of the mortal though she struggles to break his hold on her. Jill's sociology student boyfriend Don Swaggert becomes jealous of her attention to John and threatens to kill his rival; the vampire without blinking kills him. John¿s vampiric master Laura Kellem demands he turns himself into the police to protect her nocturnal dining. John is going to do so until he meets Jill¿s roommate Susan. Now he has a reason to live, but must free Jill, find a way to be with Susan as equals, and finally confront his ruthless master Laura with the odds so overwhelmingly against him no gambler would risk the bet........................... AGYAR is an excellent modern day vampire tale that will make believers of anyone who reads this exhilarating tale. The action-packed story line moves at a brisk pace, but the key is the solid cast. Readers will accept the existence of vampires and their caste system due to the completeness of Laura and John as full blooded beings. Jill¿s desperation to free herself, which includes the use of magic, also comes across as genuine. Finally Susan completes the quartet that makes for a strong book that will land on all the best of the year short horror novel lists......................... Harriet Klausner

    An amazing story

    I was honestly blown away. I have read almost all of Brust's books and this is among the best of them. the story of Agyar is a wonderful tale of a supernatural being, who befriends a ghost and is the ultimate Lady Killa.lol great book, i suggest you read it.

    Read this book!

    This was a wonderful novel, that has stuck with me even now after finishing it a month ago. The mystery of the novel not only intrigues you as the reader but answers the question of the book from previous chapters. As the pieces of the novel begin to fall into place you can't help but admire the writing style of Steven Brust. The love story is so captivating, your heart wrenches with every turn of the plot. You won't be able to put the book down. Janos Agyar or Jack, is the unforgettable man of the story. Even though throughout history we are taught to hate the evil of the world you can't help but cheer him on to success.

    Don't waste your money!

    Having read other reviews, I thought I would really like this book. WRONG! Brust is obviously quite taken with himself and he goes on, and on, and on, and on, about absolutely nothing in this book. There were sub-plots that were introduced in the story but never explained. (The history of Jim the ghost, as an example.) I forced myself to keep reading, hoping it would improve but it didn't. (Sadly, I also bought another book of his before I read the first. . . )
