I read this before 'Dark Dance' and it was the first time I encountered Tanith Lee. I think the earth moved when I read 'Personal Darkness', it is a really great read, especially if you are looking for something dark and vampiric. I've gone on to read 'Darkness, I' which sucked me even further into this marvelous tale. I am extremely eager to continue reading Lee's sequal to this, but that's if she ever decides to go on writing about the scarabe. Hopefully she will. It would be even cooler if Lee explored where the scarabe actually came from and who they are.
Tanith Lee is now my favourite female author, Anne Rice ranking second now. I recently bought 'Vivia' and was not disapointed, another great read.
