    A Dangerous Climate -- Only for the Readers

    Having read many of the Saint-Germain novels, I began this book with mixed feelings. Would it be as exciting and vivid as "Blood Games" and "Tempting Fate" or would it be flat and sluggish as "Come Twilight" and "Better in the Dark"? Unfortunately, it was the latter. The characters were lackluster, including the usually intense Saint-Germain. The plot was a mere thread, sometimes so thin as to be transparent. Even the inter-chapter letters, which, in other novels, added to the knowledge of the reader without having to add to the narration, were tedious. The motivations of the characters were under-developed even when those motivations were mentioned. In short, I felt this book was one long conversation, the participants of which changed as the locations changed. I never "saw" the characters clearly, never was intrigued by the little action that took place, and was disappointed by the blandness of the usually vibrant main character. It was like watching a play through a fog bank. Only one aspect of the book was in keeping with the character of Saint Germain: the intense sensuality of his "feeding". This alone has the richness of description and emotion that I had come to associate with all aspects of Ms. Yabro's best Saint Germain stories. I can't recommend this book to any one who has enjoyed the other novels.
