Fast paced, action packed and never a dull moment. WOW. A wonderfully dark and twisted fantasy with a twinge of romance sprinkled all through the tale. It read like a fantasy/romance/paranormal mystery. An epic tale of magic, greed, revenge, lust, hate, power, love and death. It's all here in this book, vampires, sorcerers, necromancers, demons, witches, prostitutes, murderers, kings, princes, princesses, castles, transsexuals,...and I am sure I missed something. All tastefully, characterized. It is written so well, the story grabs your soul and does not not you sleep at night. It's a long book so I lost some z's.I have to add this author as one of my "not to miss authors"
