From Our Editors

Editorial Reviews

"Compuslive reading."--Kirkus Reviews

"This is romantic suspense with a few intellectual vampires stirred into the ploy....a gentler kind of ''horror''."--Booklist

"Yarbro''s vampires are benign, rational, civilazed beings more worthy of the term ''humanity'' than many of the mortal they encounter."--Locus
