I'd certainly be keen to read the fictional version of the Princes in the Tower. Whenever I finish her books it always sees me heading off to one of the places she writes of, in this case Hampton Court here I come!

5.0 out of 5 stars A captivating read, 3 Nov 2011
After being such a fan of Twilight, I wasn't sure anything else vampire related would quite match up. Certainly I found that to be true of the true blood and vampire diary series; I didn't like any of them... but THIS I loved!!!!
Much deeper, more intelligent, certainly more mature than Twilight, but still easy to draw paralells; you just can't help it if you're a fan of those books.
I did work my way through this chunky book at an alarming rate despite trying to tell myself to slow down and savour it and am now eagerly awaiting the next installment!

It also seemed a bit too similar to his other books but with name and country changes. I agree with the review of T Lewis, that the author should just go ahead and make Gabriel head of the office and be done with it and a newer story could be created from his organisation… Read more
