Smashwords book reviews by Brian Williams
- Scent and Shadow: an Aether Vitalis Novel
on Dec. 05, 2011
I have two confessions to make before you read this review. The first is that I know the author, Mercy Loomis. The second is that there is nothing that would have induced me to read this book had I not known the author, which would have been my loss, since it is brilliant.
Forget the subject matter or any preconceptions you might have about a "vampire novel" or a "romance novel". This is out-and-out an excellent story which is beautifully told. The characters are wonderfully drawn and the entire story is utterly compelling. Normally I don't find it is easy to read e-books compared to printed books, but I couldn't put this one down, leading to far too many late nights and missed hours of sleep.
If you want to know more of what "Scent and Shadow" is about read the other reviews; there's no point in my repeating what they've already said. If you want to know whether you should buy this book, the answer is yes.
