Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Elevated and elegant…yet happily gory and perilous.” Los Angeles Times
“A classical alternative to the traditional tale, seamlessly weaving mordant humor, cheeky literary allusions, and outrageous encounters…I’m sure Byron himself would have been pleased.” Time Out London
“Holland composes his tale with great style and erudition.” San Francisco Examiner & Chronicle
“Truly sates the appetite for imaginative entertainment…Genuine Gothic thrills.” Orlando Sentinel
“An utter banquet of sex, terror, and death told in the poet’s own delectable turn of phrase…This is a work of literary scholarship positively wet with vibrant language and sense of place, exotic in its accuracy and lapidary love of detail…The book is really a tour de force…A beautiful, Byzantine historical suspense novel.” Boston Book Review
“Engaging and sophisticated…With this striking, highly original debut, Holland offers a valuable addition to the vampire legend.” Publishers Weekly
“Entertaining and ingenious.” Manchester Evening News (England)
“A darkly entertaining tale…The language is lush and melodramatic, and the twists and turns many.” Anderson Independent-Mail
