    I put this book down with a sense of awe That Hambly conceived of this story is impressive enough that she pored huge amounts of knowledge about late 19th century Europe into the tale is incredible She establishes the look and feel of every locale with the same clarity and texture that Eric Ambler achieves in his early 20th century spy tales The sense that nations and people are heading, unbeknownst, towards World War I, is heady and creepy and the way that Hambly inserts her own tale into I put this book down with a sense of awe That Hambl...

    This book was a major disappointment 1.5 stars rounded up Uninteresting, antiquated fashion reports abound in this soporific, rambling book On the one hand, I liked the little wifey poo getting involved and having an intelligent, systematic approach to investigating the whereabouts of the vampire clans On the other hand, the narrative jumped around so much and skipped major blocks of time, then tried to fill in a few of the blanks in retrospect Too much retrospect, not enough action Why ha This book was a major disappointment 1.5 stars rounded up Uninteresting, antiquated fashion reports abound in this soporific, rambling book On the one hand, I liked the little wifey poo getting involved and having an intelligent, systematic approach to investigating the whereabouts of the vampire clans On the other hand, the narrative jumped around so much and skipped major blocks of time, then tried to fill in a few of the blanks in retrospect Too much retrospect, not enough action Why hasn t Asher gone out and had a silver mesh vest or dickey made to protect from easy vampire access, or at least placed locks on the bracelets and necklaces to make them impossible to coerce off via vampiric mind control With as m...

    I enjoyed this one, but not as much as I did the first one, Those Who Hunt the Night For one, we don t get to see quite as much of Asher, andof Lydia, his wife She is farconcerned with how she looks at every moment than I find delightful, and her fixation on keeping Ysidro righteous is just stupid, considering how much she has weakened her only ally Once again, though, Hambly has done a fantastic job of recreating the Victorian era, and not just in London, but in Paris and Constan I enjoyed this one, but not as much as I did the first one, Those Who Hunt the Night For one, we don t get to see quite as much of Asher, andof Lydia, his...

    I always enjoy Barbara Hambly s work the first books of hers that I read were the Star Trek novels and this is a wonderful vampire tale It s the second in the series, I realised as I got into it, so now I will have to go looking for the first one The vampires are properly not human, and the reason for the long and dangerous journey from London to Constantinople, via Vienna, is kept mysterious right to the end I also liked the heroine, who is short sighted but too vain to wear her glasses in I always enjoy Barbara Hambly s work the first books of hers that I read were the Star Trek novels and this is a wonderful vampire tale It s the second in the series...

    Really enjoyed Hambly s interpretation of how vampirism works She never lets you lose sight that they may appear human but they are definitely not like us.

    I was disappointed by this second in the series It felt frantic and disjointed, I couldn t focus on any character long enough to establish a connection.
