This. Isn't. Twilight. And that's a really, really good thing.
At first glance, Riley's novel is an "erotically charged" novel that just happens to have vampires; but even saying "erotically charged" feels wrong (and sort of dirty...but in the good way.) That changes once the first dead body appears on the page (and don't worry; you don't have to wait too long.) What follows is a sensual fable of lust, desire, sex, love and how they all come together. And that sometimes, they don't go hand-in-hand.
Riley breathes refreshing life into Mia Lawrence, a likeably flawed protagonist, likeable mostly because of her acknowledgement and self-awareness of her many flaws; although she's engaged and happily in love, she finds herself mysteriously drawn to Mr. Breckt. Breckt is the dark, dashing stranger that forms the backbone of gothic romance novels like this, but there's a problem: Breckt (like the novel) is more dangerous than Mia could ever imagine...and more dangerous than this reader imagined too.
By moving the narrative voice between Mia and Breckt (and occasionally some other characters too), Riley creates a compelling cast and a dark, twisted narrative. We're forced to care for Mia because of what we know (and what she doesn't), but we WANT to care for her; Mia's struggles embody the battle between ego, superego and id that vampires play in modern fiction. And Breckt...well, I'm glad that I didn't like him; Riley's vampire is less Edward Cullen and more akin to the psychological torture and uncomfortable sexuality that most people forget about when they think of Wuthering Heights. And it really works for this book.Read more ›
