Paperback, 341 pages, in good condition.

This was one of my favorite books as a teen. I loved it so much that I bought a second copy, hoping to find someone to share it with. My original copy was bought for me while I was sick in the hospital. I bought the second copy at a fundraising book sale at a local high school. Surprisingly enough, the second (used) copy is in better shape than the original! I've been wanting to share this book with someone for so long, and now I have my chance.

The story in this book follows the famed ninteeth-century poet, Lord Byron's life as a vampire. Byron tells his story to an unsuspecting Rebecca Carville, revealing details from the past and, soon enough, a surprise about the present.

In my opinion, this book is even better than Anne Rice's Interview with the Vampire, one of the most accliamed books in the same genre. And, after reading this book, research on the life of Lord Byron might make you wonder...

This is a must-read for any vampire fan.

I'll be passing this book along to my younger sister.

I got this book back from jumpingjean a few days ago.

From the back cover: "The famed nineteenth century poet and rake, Lord Byron, comes to life in a searing blend of fact and fiction, a shockingly brilliant novel with all the hypnotic power of Caleb Carr’s The Alienist and the best of Anne Rice.

Traveling in the mountains of Greece, Byron falls under the spell of a mysterious fugitive slave, whose pale, slim body arouses his lust. Utterly entranced, his fate is sealed. The supreme sensualist embarks on a life of adventure–that of the world’s most formidable vampire.

Chosen to enjoy powers beyond those any vampire has ever known, Byron enters a dark, intoxicating world of long-lost secrets, ancient arts, and scorching excesses of evil. He drinks deeply of terror and sex. But his diversions, delicious and cruel, are also his torment: an all-consuming thirst damning all those he loves..."

This book is now available for release.

I don't know how I did that! I accidentally skipped citrus! :-( I'll be sending PMs to correct the ring order. I'm going to move citrus into the third position (after tchouli) to make sure she'll be included. Please take note of this update to the list of participants!

Sorry, everyone! :-\
