I honestly did not know what to think when I first began to read this novel; it was a bit ‘out there.’ It was not what I was expecting when I first start reading, yet it grew on me. It was fun for a quick read; it was shorter than most other novels I normally read, so it was a great change of pace. Imagining Marie Antoinette as a vampire was intriguing. I love vampire novels, yet this one was not what I was expecting, it was closer to erotica than I though tit would be, yet coming from Ellora’s Cave, I knew it would be HOT and it was.
This is deinately not your typical vampire or historical erotical novel, worth the read. I don’t know if I will read it again or any more in the series.
