Product Description

Product Description

It’s Christmas in London but Cassandra Bick, owner of the human/vampire dating agency Dark Dates, doesn’t feel much like celebrating. There’s a rogue vampire running loose on the streets and Cassandra and her friends must try to stop him before he strikes again – even if that means enlisting the help of Laclos, the flirtatious vampire with very definite ideas of what (or who) he wants to unwrap this Christmas…

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 16 Dec 2012
By Lori
Format:Kindle Edition
A great, festive short story. There's action, humour and poignancy - particularly when Cass and her friends visit London's homeless while trying to track down the killer. Laclos is such a loveable rogue - his melodramatic entrance at the shelter and his ability to have his minions produce mistletoe on demand made me giggle - but as ever it's Cassandra and her no-nonsense, kick-ass style that steals the show. I must say that I love the idea of vampires queuing up to buy glitter lotion in Boots, and will think of that every time I go past the branch at St Paul's now. Recommended for those seeking a clever, witty, Christmas-related story where the fantasy goes beyond flying reindeer and large fat men sliding down chimneys.

2.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining with a touch of reality 24 Dec 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The writing is generally good, but I have two gripes.

First, there are blank lines here and there like section breaks, but they're not. Or maybe some of them are, because otherwise there's no indication of a section break in places where there should be one.

Second, the story is written in first person, but the tense keeps getting screwed up. It's written mostly (but not entirely) in the past tense, but the narrator's sense of now seems to keep time with the events and much of what should be written as present tense is written as past tense.

It's an entertaining story with nice humour, and it would get an extra star if the technical issues were addressed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lovely with a touch of Christmas spirit 10 Dec 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Another lovely short from Cassandra Bick Chronicles. This time it's Cass and Laclos working in tandem to find a rogue vampire on streets of London right on Christmas Eve.

I feel like I'm warming up to Laclos more and more. He is such a cheeky and charming bugger, who makes you snicker with his delightful pranks.

QUOTE:

"Ah, then I shall not detain you further... once you have obliged me with your English tradition of a kiss under the mistletoe, of course."
"There's no mistletoe tonight, Laclos."
I should have known a little thing like that wouldn't stop Laclos, of course. He clicked his fingers and an enormous vampire appeared beside us, one in a stream of faceless, nameless bodyguards he seemed to be working his way through lately. The vampire's face was expressionless, but without being told, he produced a sprig of mistletoe from nowhere and held it above our heads.
"A wise man makes his own opportunities," Laclos purred, and it was so shameless - so Laclos - that I actually laughed out loud. Then he pulled me into his arms and kissed me, and I wasn't laughing any more."

There is some sadness in this story too as Cassandra works in a homeless shelter helping out just before Christmas and tells us why she can't stand this holiday. There is Medea and Kate too and a touch of Christmas spirit :) Recommended, intriguing and definitely makes me want to read more of this series.
