KISS OF DARKNESS
Graham's vampire stories are among her most intense and stirring, and this one is no exception. Some of the details may be a little murky, but the power of the narrative and the delicious Bryan make them easy to overlook. Spooky, sexy and satisfying.
Something about him is achingly familiar, and it's not long before Jessica learns why. An ancient like herself, Bryan is a warrior seeking the enemy she sensed in Romania -- an evil creature known as the Master. Joining forces, Jessica and Bryan prepare for the ultimate battle, hoping against hope that both will yet again survive. (MIRA, Sep., 400 pp., $7.99)
