Blurb: Since his turning in 1022 young spy, François, has hated all humans. And yet, in 1347, he falls in love with one, only to be betrayed by Giles who tells his liege lord that François is a vampire. The lord blackmails François into spying for him. Years later, François gains his revenge on Giles through his son.
In 1876 New Orleans, François joins forces with Vasile, a master of the city, to take on human vampire hunters. Then Vasile’s human lover dies and Vasile turns to François for comfort. Will love ensue, or is François destined to always be alone?
Review: This story tells about Francois, how he became a vampire and why he hates humans so much. He is a very vengeful type man, though once you read his story you will see why he is so bitter.
This is a pretty good set up for a series and also a historical setting.
For some reason, I never really related to Francois. Perhaps if I knew more of his human past I would have connected more. Also to me, the story skipped around some and I had a hard time really getting into it. But having said this, it is an intriguing set up of François and his world and the end has me wanting to see where the story goes.
If you like historical settings, vampires that don’t sparkle, deceit, betrayal spies and paranormal series, this is for you
