Publisher’s Description: London, 1794. Lucius Cane, a peculiar sort of vampire, comes upon an opponent the likes of which he has never seen before – a brute with remarkable abilities. But not all is as it seems as their encounter unfolds in a manner that neither of them expected.

Possible spoilers beyond this point.

I would have liked to see more character descriptions, both physical and mental. Jack the Hound has a lot of background information (he’s a drunk with an abusive father who got transformed as a young kid) but Lucius didn’t get much. In fact, there’s a voice inside his head that I wish I would have known more about.

badge4v4I really enjoyed the fight scene between both characters and the unexpected twist near the end. It was really well written and I would very much love to read the next one.
