Editorial Reviews

The Barnes & Noble Review
What if Buffy went Regency? Vampires terrorize 19th-century London society in this historical vampire slayer thriller, Gleason's first book and the first in a projected series.

Historically, a member of the Gardella family has been the one to pick up the stake. The newest slayer to follow her destiny is young, beautiful Victoria Gardella Grantworth. Master vampire executioner Maximilian Pesaro has his doubts about her -- Victoria seems far too busy thinking about gowns, dances, her debut to society, and her romance with the dashing Marquis of Rockley. But her aunt has faith in her niece, who stakes a vampire on the first try. Victoria's courage and heart are tested to the max, as Lilith brings her entire entourage to London. Victoria, who has led a double life in an effort to hide her vocation and family legacy from Rockley, will be forced to choose between her heart and her destiny. Ginger Curwen
