    thoroughly enjoyed it

    this book is such a fun read - i read it almost in one sitting, read it again to find out what i missed by reading it so fast the first time (although i get the feeling i'd catch something new every time i read it) and then handed it off to a friend so i could have someone to discuss it with. i enjoyed the characters (the good, the bad and the camera hogs) and loved all the layers in the dialogue and plot. it's great to see a book that can successfully weave together so many things and still manage not to take itself too seriously.

    Fantastic urban fantasy

    After living on the streets for many years, Tony Foster was taken into the home of Henry Fitzroy, son of Henry VII and a four hundred and fifty year old vampire. Tony is twenty-four years old now, lives in his own apartment and remains close with his beloved mentor Henry although they are not quite as intimate. Tony works as a production assistant for ¿Darkest Night¿ a television show about a vampire detective................................. Although Tony appreciates the irony of the current situation, he¿s becoming worried about strange happenings on the set. Shadows seem to be moving independently of people¿s bodies and some are even lurking in hidden corners. Tony is determined to find out what is happening and he figures the best person to ask is Arra, the special effects person who seems to know more than she is saying. She finally confesses to Tony that she is a wizard from another world who traveled in a portal to Earth because the Shadowlord conquered her world. He is searching for her now and once he destroys her, he intends to conquer Earth using his shadow minions. Henry and Tony intend to stop him if they can and try to convince Arra to join the battle.......................................... Readers familiar with Private Detective Vicki Nelson and Henry Fitzroy the vampire books know that Tony is a minor but important character in those tales. They will love his coming out party in SMOKE AND SHADOWS. The hero is all grown up and very mature for his age, eager to save his world although he is scared to death. Henry is still a good friend who takes a back seat to his protégée in this enthralling book............................... Harriet Klausner
