Publisher Comments:

Who's been killing the vampires of London, tearing open their coffins to let in lethal sunshine as they sleep--and then drinking their blood?
"Hambly's examination of vampirism is beautifully detailed, with a fine realistic background and strong sense of atmosphere...Will give Anne Rice a run for her money."--Publishers Weekly

Katherine Stuart, September 21, 2008 (view all comments by Katherine Stuart)
Part mystery novel part vampire novel this story takes the reader to the London of 1906. Someone is murdering vampires! Hambly recreates London in superb detail: the streets, the clothing, traveling habits, the science. She spends quite a bit of time on the science and on the idea that vampirism is a disease with its own peculiar long-term symptoms. She handles the scientific details very deftly.
Hambly shies away from having a true villain and so her characters all come off as a lithe too good to be true, but they carry the story smartly. She does drag a bit overdescribing the ways in which her main character – James Asher’s – enlightened wife’s scientific pursuits, but I’ve definitely seen worse. She curbs the tendency to dwell with some success. The ending continues her blending of the scientific and gothic.
The theing that really bothered me was her constant insistence that everything in gaslight looks “primrose.” It’s a beautiful word choice once, but she must use it a dozen times and after awhile I began to wish she’d be a little more creative and a little less romantic.
