In a bold bid for adventure, outspoken, headstrong Demi Ward, Bludman (vampire) and brilliant contortionist, leaves the relative safety of the Clockwork Caravan she's called home ever since she was wrenched from her Earthly college life for the wild Sang world. She eludes her chaperone and with her best friend Cherie heads for the cabarets of Paris. But when slavers attack their coach, Cherie is taken, and Demi flees into the moors, only to be rescued by Vale Hildebrand, a roguish brigand who takes her into the city—and into a dangerous new life and a perilous search for Cherie. Bright-skinned Daimons who live on emotion, human Pinkies, and lethal Bludmen bring a depraved, alternate Paris to vivid life as Demi and Vale navigate the pitfalls of a debauched pleasure-seeking culture in a race against time to find Cherie. VERDICT Sexy, captivating, witty, and touched with evil, Dawson's latest venture into her wickedly decadent steampunk world is an enthralling page-turner and another winner for fans of darker paranormals. Dawson (Wicked as She Wants) lives in Atlanta.
