Reviews

Gritty, grimy, decadent and compelling - SUNDAY TIMESThe political intrigue is handled with dexterity, springing surprises and plot twists fuelled by the Machiavellian cast. Grimwood delivers a page-turning read and offers a neat twist on the Vampire theme - GUARDIANThis is dark majestic stuff . . . - FINANCIAL TIMESThis is a book full of mysteries that remain unsolved and outcomes that remain cloudy. Grimwood creates a fascinating world and involving characters - most importantly, he makes us want to read the next two volumes of the trilogy - INDEPENDENTThe writing is elegant, the dialogue is sharp, the characters economically but well drawn, the action unrelenting . . . Hits all the right notes - SCIFI NOWA twisted, Machiavellian, complicated and ornate book about survival and the terrible lengths people will go to for power - PORNOKITSCHBrilliant, haunting, dark, gothic historical fantasy... This is the best vampire novel written since The Vampire Lestat, while simultaneously being very different and original - CIVILIAN READERKnown for his near-future SF, such as the suberb ARABESK trilogy, Grimwood's new novel still features his trademark alternate timelines. His attention to detail and skillful weaving of fact with fiction make this a fine beginning to his new series - BOOKS QUARTERLY
