This is my first time reading this author - it was a fabulous book! I found myself crying my way through the last pages and then laughing that I was crying while reading a vampire novel! I will definately be searching out more books by this author. I was so suprise to find out the book was set in the late 1800's!
I think that Ms. Smith is really an unsung talent in her genre. Her stories are fantastical yet somewhat down to earth. I read the other two books in this series first and then this one, and have laughed, cried, and cheered for those beloved vampires. Can't wait to see if she writes about Reign and Temple...I'd be first in line for those books!
I really liked this book. Pru is a young woman who is dying of cancer. Her quest for a cure makes her obsessed with finding the Holy Grail. It also brings her search to the attention of other people...some good...some bad. Chapel has been sent by the church to help. He had no idea he would find his salvation. The romance between Chapel and Pru was wonderfully written.
My first Smth book and I was not disappointed. Great read
Have the kleenex ready. Good book. Characters very engaging. Strong female lead. I enjoyed this book.
