Come Twilight

St. Germain (Volume 13)

Chelsea Quinn Yarbro

Tor Books

Beginning in the 600s, Spain's old blood rituals of animal sacrifice were replaced by the new gods of Christianity and Islam, who demanded no less obedience and allegiance. Saint-Germain becomes trapped in this cauldron of blood, fear, and faith when, he makes a vampire of the beautiful, haughty, tempestuous Csimenae.

He must try to save Csimenae-and her clan-but at what price?

REVIEWS

Praise for Come Twilight

"Chelsea Quinn Yarbro has created a character who makes other vampires pale in comparison. A bewitching tale." --The Washington Post

"She has deepened and clarified and brought into focus what she's been up to all these years. I have never seen the Count more clearly, nor liked him more, nor better understood the subtleties of what Yarbro's been up to all along. A wonderfully entertaining book." --Gahan Wilson in Realms of Fantasy
