    Romance with vampires and mystery

    Arthur was to be King, before he was changed. Now he watches from the shadows loving different woman for a night or so as years pass by. Three hundred and fifty plus years and he meets the woman on a steam air ship gala that resembles his long lost love. Inserting himself in her investigation for a vampire on a murdering spree Arthur falls in love with the woman she is. And the mystery murders...might be something he should focus on as the victims seem to be affiliated with him, and are now turning into vampires though stronger and slightly different from a normal vampire. Along with solving this mystery and keeping his hearts love safe, Arthur has to try to keep his secret and get the love of his affects to fall for him as well.

    The story is a Romance. There are many intimate moments with Arthur and... a few woman. He is stuck in a young fit, active and hormone induced male body after all.

    Arthur starts as a man looking for blood and a quick romp with woman. By the end he has evolved, to seem a better man. Not that he was a bad man at the beginning as I really liked his choice in women. He never took the innocent virgin take that many think vampires are hungry for. No, Arthur was always looking for an older, mature woman that is more experienced.

    There is a mystery here as well. But first we meet the key characters then get to the mystery. So we start off with the "active" Arthur with one thought in mind over the women he meets. Avalon seems to take to Arthur easier and easier through the book. He seems to be her type of personality when they get talking, finally.

    This is set in a Victorian age with some touches of steampunk as well. There are some neat steam and gear contraptions found here. Some created to benefit a vampire as well. The story has a bit of fighting as well. With the vampires, there has to be some fighting. The story has a combo of all things present for readers that want more with their romance.

    As for the Podcast:
    I like the authors voice as she reads the different characters and accents she makes it sound like the character with accent and attitude they would use. The infliction used in voice makes all the difference in understanding the innuendos sometimes. These episodes are done with about a half hour or less sessions which ends up being a chapter or two at a time. The author doesn't give anything away in speaking the parts and speaks clearly to easily understand her.

    I would say whether read or listen, this sounds like a very good Romance with all sorts of extras added in to enjoy.

    Avalon Revisited: A Short Review by Rickey Pittman

    Avalon Revisited (Blue Moose Press 2010) by Olivia M. Grey was my first introduction to Steampunk fiction, a genre blending science fiction, fantasy, history, horror, Victorian, and speculative fiction. Since I met Ms. Grey, I've been introduced to this new and intriguing subculture, traversing the world-form the wilds of London to the mayhem and extremity of the Burning Man.

    Carefully researched, Ms. Grey's writing style kept me intrigued until the very end. I was able to walk with the characters through cold nights "full of murder and monsters" ( (81). The protagonist, Arthur, a vampire, is both the subject and narrator. He is by his own admission a man who "wasn't polite company" (7). He meets Avalon, a dark-haired beauty who obsesses and distracts him. She is quite complicated and you're never sure about how his pursuit of her will go until the very end because of a key conflict: He is a vampire and she a vampire hunter. He says, "Of all the women I've had in my time, I fall in love with a vampire hunter. Of course" (86). Though he knows his obsession of Avalon is self-destructive, he says, "This was love. This agony. This suffering. This sinking feeling in my chest. Feeling unable to live without her. Knowing I could not live without her. Knowing I would do anything for her, even if it led to my own ruin, for I was nothing without her" (187).

    At no point did I lose interest in this sexy, vampire tale, and at no point did I feel I left Victorian England, in spite of the anachronisms associated with Steampunk fiction. I highly recommend this novel. It's not your typical vampire read, and the skilled craft of O. M. Grey will keep you reading till the very end. You may even be motivated to show up at a Steampunk conference or read more in this genre.

    A most enjoyable read.

    My first actual nook purchase! I had been looking forward to reading this book ever since I started following Ms. Grey on twitter. She did not disappoint.

    Thank you, Ms. Grey, for giving us a vampire with some real teeth, who's comfortable with his condition and at the same time not a maniacal beast. I, for one, have had enough of angst ridden, remorse laden, drama queen vampires.

    My favorite line from the book has to be:
    <blockquote>The Myths were quite varied. Some were completely rediculous, like the idea that vampires glistened in the sunlight. Perhaps they did the moment before they caught fire. Still one must give credit for originality.</blockquote>

    That's not to say Arthur York doesn't have his own inner turmoils, but in this reader's opinion they deepen and strengthen the character rather than comsume him. Her use of a true life historical figure as the basis for her protagonist vampire is expertly done. It even prompted me to read up on my English history a bit.

    The only thing that detracted from the delightful experience of reading this story was that the edition I have could stand another pass by the copy editor. There were numerous instances of missing, misused or run together words that while not a deal killer were certainly annoying.

    Other than that, Ms. Grey artfully blended the elements of vampire romance in a steampunk backdrop. There were airships, fanciful gadgets and even mad science! All of which wonderfully framed a stirring romantic tale. The intimate scenes are just graphic enough to place this novel firmly in the Adult fiction category - as in "for grownups, no kids allowed" - without being gratuitous or base.

    The denoument was satisfyingly tense and while not entirely a surprise did indeed deliver a rewarding conclusion.

    Overall, <i>Avalon Revisited</i> is an excellent read. I highly recommend it to anyone who favors vampire stories, Victorian Romance or Steampunk.
