Sure it's a $.99 book, but it's a Nya Rawlyns book, so if you're looking for a quick, easy read for your lunch break, this isn't it. This author's work is always dark and complex, the main characters are flawed and quirky. The story is full of contrasts. Pain and pleasure, truth and lies, trust and deceit, past and present, real and unreal.
Dreu is a 900-year-old Vampyr with a dark secret. When he's 'rescued' by a band of werewolves, the weres see Dreu as a weapon to use against their mortal enemies – the Vampyrs. This little story is set firmly in the here and now, which gives it depth. We all know about Somali pirates and the sale of ex-Soviet weapons. Now add Vampyrs and Werewolves. Throw in some seriously erotic MM sex as the ancient monk begins an unlikely relationship with a young werewolf, and then let's delve into who Dreu is, why he's a monk. One of Dreu's endearing qualities is his wicked sense of humor. You'll encounter that on page one. From there, the story becomes darker, with an amazing variety of twists and turns for such a short read. You'll need to keep your wits about you, but you'll be thinking about this little book for the next few days.
