Robert Gaunt says he is not a vampire. He has a reflection, quite partial to looking at it; he enjoys the daylight and loves sitting in the sun; he sleeps in a bed not a coffin. The fact that he is over 500 years old, lives entirely on blood and the occasional Bloody Mary, and has pointy canine teeth suggest otherwise.
The technical name is Haematophagous – an animal which lives off blood. Like any animal Robert Gaunt was born in this state, he did not catch it. He is mortal, if you care to kill him. And like any animal he needs to find a mate who will give him a child.
Mandy seems a likely candidate for this task. A perfect brood mare who will give him a good strong son. Or will she…?
Yet again, Kristen Stone gives us a book unlike any of her others. Yet again, she creates a frightful yet believable character in a story that moves so fast you find it difficult to put down.
