    And now for something old and completely different! Think all vampire novels are alike? Not this one. It's odd, macabre, unexpected, compelling, and at times grim. If you are expecting the typical sexual tension found in paranormal romances, look elsewhere (although true love is well represented). In my mind this novel, first published in 1989 and Barbara Hambly's Traveling with the Dead (1996) are genuine fantasy novels that craft their own myth (rooted in Stoker). In a way they are opposites: the Powers plot starts out normal and quickly twists into wild, while Hambly is so restrained that it hardly feels like fantasy. In both books the protagonists are ordinary people struggling to survive the incredible. After the Ann Rice dynasty I was reluctant to pick up anything that mentioned the word vampire. The Stress of Her Regard was a bolt out of the Blue (picked it for the author and really didn't know what it was about) and I resisted Traveling with the Dead, but finally gave in because I like Hambly. Still some of the best, in my opinion.
