"Thanks to haunting detail and a literate style that evokes the chill of Poe, the reader is easily drawn into turn-of-the-century New York and to the melancholy life of a vampyre with powers that would make even Dracula jealous. The story is equal parts erotic and disturbing, told with incredible detail and character depth, and will surely grip you like the best of dreams and the very worst of nightmares."
