The Barnes & Noble Review
Emma Holly, known for her fusion of erotica and the paranormal, brings both to a richly invented new world, the Aedlyne Empire under Victoria. Here the Queen has struck a devil's bargain, allowing the silver-eyed demons known as the Yamish to settle in her slums in exchange for sharing their superior technology. Only later does she find out the secret of the Yamish's unnatural strength -- the drinking of human energy or lifeforce. In the fog-shrouded slums of Avvar, it falls to police officers like Inspector Adrian Philips, enhanced with special Yamish implants, to guard the populace against the hungry demons. The love story begins as an injured Adrian tumbles into the garden of the artist Roxanne, the bastard daughter of a famous singer, and, we find out later, also the daughter of one of the prominent demons. In this highly stratified society, liaisons between classes are illicit. Even as Adrian is fired because of their passionate affair, an enemy of Roxanne's father is determined to trap her and achieve the ultimate satisfaction. Ginger Curwen
