Overview

From his first passionate encounters with love and death in the dark days of the of the fourteenth century to his dazzling fame as a master of illusion in modern-day Las Vegas, Valerian could never escape the joys and anguish of human desire. It was his fate from the beginning...Shattered by the loss of his one true love, the enchanting Brenna, Valerian surrendered his soul to the haunting solitude of endless night. Now, once every century, his beloved Brenna returns in human form: a lusty tavern maid, a singer in seventeenth century London, a courageous woman of the Old West. And with each new life, she reawakens the lost tenderness in his heart, the most human part of his soul...But this time, as the new millennium draws near, Valerian vows never to lose her again. No matter what the sacrifice.

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Valerian, a 600-year-old vampire, is packing the crowds into one of the biggest rooms in Vegas with his magic act. Then, when an unknown enemy targets his female assistants for murder, that's the cue for homicide cop Daisy Chandler, a Kinsey Milhone-type gone cute. Unbeknownst to Daisy, she and Valerian have been lovers through the centuries, doomed to finding and losing each other time and again. Miller recounts both Valerian's past and Daisy's previous incarnations (all of whom are infinitely more appealing than the 20th-century models). Because in each new life, she has no memory of her past, Daisy must learn to love Valerian over again. From the couple's first encounter as star-crossed medieval lovers, readers are treated to heart-wrenching scenes that showcase the couple's past trials. Just when it seems as if their present romance is similarly doomed (an ancient curse and all that), Valerian discovers clues to his enemy's identity and grasps at the single hope that might allow him to stay with Daisy. Daisy's jarring appearances and flat wisecracks make for an unfortunate juxtaposition with Valerian's sophisticated polish, but Miller (For All Eternity) compensates for this with her engrossing historical characters and period atmosphere. (Nov.)

This story is the by far the best one out of all her vampire books. I could not put it down. I fell in love with Valerian and wished I was Daisy. I have read this story several times and I will probably read it several more. I will never get board with Linda's vampire chronicles. I wish she would write more of them. Thank you Linda.

I read this book, along with the other three in this series, about a year ago and I still remember them as being the greatest books I've ever read! I read constantly and can hardly remember the titles of most of the books I read so when I remember a book that I read that long ago, it's special!

I love every book she has written,but when I ventured into the vampire love stories, It knock me dead. I buy everything by Ms. Miller, but please continue with Valerian, his God child,and Mauve. Oh! I just can't wait...Forever a fan..
