Yes, I was skeptical when I saw that this first Cadence Drake novel was about vampires.
Not my favorite subject matter, by any means. And yet I'd loved Gail Carrigan's "Soulless"
series, despite its containing not only vampires but werewolves, as well.
So since I am a huge fan of Holly Lisle's teaching of writing, I decided it couldn't hurt
to see how someone I see as a mentor could possibly create a unique and compelling vampire
tale. And I'm thrilled that I took a chance, because "Hunting the Corrigan's Blood" is a
page-turner. Yes, that's a cliche', I know. But that doesn't make it any the less true.
Lisle's characters are deftly drawn, their motivations true to the people she has shown
them to be, the storyline compelling and the multi-layered plots are masterfully interwoven
with loose ends satisfyingly tied up.
Read this one first, then run, don't walk, to get the second novel in the series (each stands
alone but have threads connecting one to the other). And most of all, enjoy!
