    I was completely impressed with Mr. Boylan's novel. It was the first novel that I read on my Kindle, and I took it everywhere I went until I had swallowed the story whole. One would think that after 500 pages, I would like a break; however, nothing could be further from the truth: I want more! Once I became accustomed to the setup of the characters and their societal structure, and it does take a little while, he had me. I found myself rooting for despicable characters, believing every historical event that I was transported to, and savoring every re-telling of history through the eyes of vampires. Another thing that I would like to offer my congratulations for is the quality of the prose. This gentlemen has an amazing way with the English language. There were a couple of places where I actually stopped reading and went back to allow what I had just read to swirl about my senses as if I had just taken a sip of wine. Well done. When do we get more?

    Amazing story, much different than standard, formulaic vampire novels out there today. We have a female protagonist, one who is independent, yet flawed -- a very well-rounded character. The fact that she prefers females sets it apart from other novels wherein the protagonist has been a victim of a male -- Danaan has been a victim of her own impetuousness and pride. Couple that with a villian you don't see coming, and it's a wild tale through the ages, from New York City during the turn of the millennium, all the way back to ancient Rome and the eruption of Vesuvius, with stops in Middle-Aged England and Turkey along the way. The characters are believable and well-rounded, and the prose is very well-written. A great read; cannot wait for its sequel!
