This is the first novel in the Paris Immortal series. There are currently two more books in the series, "Paris immortal: awakenings", and "Paris immortal: absolutions".
The story starts with Trey, an American lawyer who has recently moved to Paris to work for a legal firm. His clients are a male couple of unparalleled beauty and allure, Michel Lecureaux and his husband Gabriel. Since it says 'a vampire tale' on the cover, there are no prizes for guessing that Michel and Gabriel are in fact vampires. Trey will of course discover it before the end of the novel, but not before getting entangled in their lives and risking his own in the process.
The three principal characters are wonderfully brought to life in an original impressionistic style that will make you read the whole book in one setting, and immediately after go back to the beginning to savour every detail slowly, and check up on facts mentioned before that you did not pay enough attention to.
Roit creates a sensual, decadent, yet romantic atmosphere - this is not strictly a horror novel, and not a romance either, but has quite a bit of both. It also feels very contemporary.
Another plus point is that the books in the series are graced by very fine covers with atmospheric black & white photographs.
I'm always on the lookout for new, original vampire stories, and I'm very glad I picked this. I've started the second book already and can't wait to find out more about these fascinating characters!
