"London, winter of 1862, Adelaide McKee, a former prostitute, arrives on the doorstep of veterinarian John Crawford, a man she met once seven years earlier. Their brief meeting produced a child who, until now, had been presumed dead. McKee has learned that the girl lives--but that her life and soul are in mortal peril from a vampire ghost. But this is no ordinary spirit; the bloodthirsty wraith is non other than John Polidori, the onetime physician to the mad, bad, and dangerous Romantic poet Lord Byron"--P. [2] of cover.

Christina & Dante Gabriel Rossetti & John Polidori--what's not to like? However, I found some of the world-building to be a little loose & sloppy. The writing style was a little too plain, too.

Very well written and inventive.

I did not like it, not one bit. I finished the whole thing, and wish I hadn't bothered. I recognize the writing is good, and it had a lot of plot, but I could not care about any of the characters, I found it too weird ( I don't read "horror", maybe I just don't like the type of book?), and rambling. Very disappointed.

Not a sequel but more a successor to Powers' phenomenal The Stress of Her Regard. I believe him to be one of the most talented writers out there right now. He makes the mystical and mythological calmly believable. I highly recommend this novel. Don't miss it.
