Overview

The greatest enemy of a vampire is boredom. Four centuries of existence have taught Lord Morgan Gabriel D'Arcy to fear nothing and no one. Humans and their weapons have little chance against his preternatural speed and arcane powers. Vampires are viral mutations of human DNA. Still, the Vampyre code requires secrecy, and he has learned to hide his nature from the world. The lure of mortality, of a life in the sun, puts Morgan again and again at the mercy of calculating human women though they fail to consider his charm and determination into the equation. However, even grooming a future bride from infancy proves to be fraught with heartbreak. And second chances are not always what they seem unless... you are Morgan. Immortality and beauty, aren't they grand?

Morgan D’Arcy: A Vampire Rhapsody by Linda Nightingale is a never ending story about a vampire who yearns to love and be loved. However, he is unable to fulfill his fondest desire and instead continues his life endlessly with a tortured soul. This is not a book that ends with a happy ever after but instead leaves the reader with a wish to find out what happens to Morgan next. This is an enthralling read that made me wish the book had been longer instead of ending in a cliffhanger. I would have preferred to continue reading until I could find out if Morgan received his happy ever after or not. Morgan D’Arcy is a vampire whose story continues without ending.

I thoroughly enjoyed this compilation of four Morgan D’Arcy adventures. And I say this as one who normally doesn’t read vampire fiction or paranormal romance. But Morgan D'Arcy: A Vampyre Rhapsody is completely accessible, literary, and insightful and to me works on more levels than just paranormal romance. The author has fleshed out Morgan’s character in these stories, which could also be considered novelettes or novellas, and the book as a whole reads like an integrated four-part novel. While Morgan is a vampire, and while rational society would consider him a psychopath, he’s also a loveable and even compassionate genius whose sensuous urges and bloodthirsty needs somehow come across as being all too human. The book has an undertone of philosophical reflection on what it means to be human, a trait shared by two other of the author’s Morgan books I’ve reviewed, the novels Sinner’s Opera and Sinner’s Obsession. The book’s strong eroticism is handled exactly right, fully describing the characters’ motivations, sensuality, and animal instincts, and it solidifies this well-developed world. I especially enjoy the modern settings and concerns, even as Morgan’s long experience since the mid-seventeenth century is always a subtheme. There are even some speculative fiction aspects which further amplify Morgan’s world, such as the investigation about genetic causes of the vampire species, possible reversals or improvements to DNA, and a solution to Morgan’s yearning to simply exist outside on a sunny day.
