    I wanted to like this, but no For a book with a sympathetic vampire,character which I generally find lame , the idea wasn t bad a vampire who could use a crucifix against his enemies.The pacing I found too slow and the characters too similar everyone melodramatic and vain, in complete denial of the Satanists among them, who themselves were ignorant of vampirism I had trouble caring about various characters who were too stupid to live, and it seemed as though many elements of the plot were n I wa [...]

    This is the first book about the ancient, noble, lonely vampire Saint Germain, but I m glad it wasn t the first one I read because I might not have have continued with the series It s not terrible, but the two later books I ve already read were better than this one.For one thing, the plot is Saint Germain vs Satan worshippers in 18th century France, and I just don t buy the motivation of Satan worshippers Why would a bunch of French nobleman spend their time horrifically sacrificing virgins This [...]

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here This is the first Count book and here, the Count seems happier than in the other novels While I find this in some ways the weakest of the books, it foreshadows Yarbro s style in the later books The attention to historical detail is here love the debate between the alchemists and Satanists , well drawn minor characters abound Hercule is one of my favorite characters , and good characterization of the leads There are s [...]
