“Saint-Germain is a compelling figure, more appealing than the modern vampires of Anne Rice and Laurell K. Hamilton.”--Romantic Times BOOKreviews
“Saint-Germain is a cultured and compassionate figure, occupied with the spread of knowledge through publishing and the child custody struggles of his lover, Hero Corvosaggio. [The relationship between] Saint-Germain and Hero is explored in fine-grained emotional as well as physical details.”--Publishers Weekly on Borne in Blood
“One of her finest. Sensuous scenes are lush with language. Meticulous attention to historic detail and vivid writing bring an ancient era to life. Unlike most generic vampire novels that can be quaffed in a quick if entertaining gulp, this book should be savored like fine wine.”--Publishers Weekly (starred review) on Roman Dusk
