Price: £2.16

4.0 out of 5 stars Great romp, 19 April 2013
If you like your romance full blooded and your vampires uncomplicated, then this is a great romp. Mind you, whether an 80 year vampires playing at being an Oxford second year is really credible, ... But then again this is fine fantasy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Post Modern and the Oral Tradition, 27 Jan. 2012
A brilliant idea - to write "lost" chapters of the Odyssesy - pithy and witty short stories in their own right, which draw on the recognised cast and stock ideas of Homer, but giving them new twists and turns. Very post-modern in its outlook(s), and ideas that arise from a brilliantly fertile mind, I thoroughly enjoyed this collection, very amenable to be picked up for a short read, and set down again, except that your appetite will be sharpened for the next episode.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 22 Mar. 2009
This book promised a lot and delivered disappointment. First, it is expensive, so I expected something worthwhile. In fact, apart from the rather nice cover, there are no illustrations whatsoever - not even a single black and white line drawing. Secondly, I found the "gemlore" is all jumbled as if the author consulted various sources, and just added the results of her latest researches to the jumble of material already collected - ancient and modern sources uncritically thrown together and then back again. I suppose by this she proves the completely random and contradictory nature of the gemlore she collects, and you could learn a lot, if you don't give up trawling through the mess of material like I did.
