While reading this book it became apparent that it was published in 1978. Without revealing more then the back cover, the saliacious pick of a devil worshipping villian is completely appropriate for the time of it's publication. The style and tone are complimentary to this decade and vampire literature at the time. I look forward to moving forward in this series to see how the main character and author deal with modern times.
Fans of the Nightside series will not be disappointed by the turn of events in the latest novel. Old friends, new villians and the same clever turn of phrase makes this latest Nightside adventure as enjoyable as the first.
Character consistency and the claim that this is the last book in the trilogy make it just as enjoyable as the first two. There is a bittersweet sense of fun and satisfaction there as well. While I might have begun to worry about character development and wether or not I was bored with the love triangle, knowing since the introduction that this was it made me able to just let all that go and enjoy the story.
Julia Quin writes a wonderful and easy going historical romance. The cameos and references to other novels/characters is enriching to a long time fan and intriguing to a beginner. This is the second of a two novel set and what is unique about this set is that it is the "same" story from each couples prespective. I enjoyed the relaxing nature of this book and when you are in the mood, a happy ending is extremely satisfying.
I recently was recommended this book. It is light, fast paced and written in the spirit of the old detective novels, yet with a supernatural twist. A quick reading that was intriguing and kept me entertained. Some criticism for a few easily guessed plot points and perhaps a bit of the story being sacrcrifced to make sure that you know there will be more to follow in the series. Nothing that will prevent me from continuing to check out John Taylor.
