As engrossing as all the rest of the books in this series, you WILL enjoy!
A very romantic and mysterious vampire, our St. Germaine. Yarbro is good writer, weaving just even history into the novel to make me enjoy it, even though I generally don't like "period" novels. The vampire is believable and likable. The female protagonist is strong and believable. Better attention to plot and action than may vampire novels.
I just couldn't get into these books. they bored the heck out of me.
15th century Florence. The most dazzling and depraved city in the world. In this Italian capital of power and corruption, art and immortality, intrigue and evil, a stranger appeared, always dressed in black-handsome, sophisticated, charming, fabulously wealthy. Noone knoew for sure what unnatural rituals went on in his sumptuous palazzo, but everything about him was seductive, compelling, irresistible.
