Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When James Asher's daughter is kidnapped by a Master Vampire, the stakes could not be higher.

When James Asher and his wife Lydia's baby daughter Miranda is kidnapped by the Master Vampire of London, the stakes are high: blindly follow the Master Vampire's instructions, keep out of the way of the human networks that serves the vampires, destroy the interloper who seeks to seize control of the London Nest, and find the key to the Nest's tortuous inner workings: The Book of the Kindred of Darkness.

Even with the vampire Don Simon Ysidro on their side, there's no guarantee that anything - or anyone - is who or what they appear to be. Nor is there any certainty that they'll see their child again - or survive the experience themselves.

Review:

"Hambly (The Magistrates of Hell) deftly draws the reader into 1913 London's undead social scene in all its complexity in the standout fifth entry of this dark, lush series. James and Lydia Asher have the ability to track the undead. Their unsteady truce with the local vampires is shaken when Grippen, Master of the London Nest, kidnaps their infant daughter, ordering them to find a foreign interloper, Damien Zahorec, without looking too closely into his secret books of vampire-controlling lore. As James sneaks through the streets seeking information, Lydia tracks Zahorec while escorting her debutante niece to parties, in scenes that dance delightfully close to period romance. The emotional triangle between James, Lydia, and their mysterious friend Don Simon Ysidro will please those who look for swooning romanticism in their vampire fare. Hambly's clever, driven characters are creatures of action, and will satisfy those who enjoy a well-articulated, heart-pounding mystery." Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
