Arthur has made his existence as a vampire bearable for over three hundred years by immersing himself in blood and debauchery. Aboard an airship gala, he meets Avalon, an aspiring vampire slayer who sparks fire into Arthur's shriveled heart. Together they try to solve the mystery of several horrendous murders. Cultures clash and pressures rise in this sexy Steampunk Romance.
This was a book I wasn't real sure how to classify-Paranormal Romance?, Historical Fiction?, Steampunk?, Mystery?, Suspense?- but it didn't really matter as it was a jewel. It's the first O M Grey book I'd read and I immediately set out to get more as this was a totally fascinating read.
It was told from Arthur's (Henry VII's brother) point of view. He's living (dead) the good life 300+ years later in Victorian England when he meets a woman that reminds him of his first love Catherine. Well she's not really interested in him until she runs into him several times while searching for the vampire that has murdered several women that he's had sex with. As Arthur knows he didn't kill them, well maybe one of them, he decides to help her discover the killer. The suspense and mystery, along with the hot sexy scenes made this book hard to put down and a very fast read for me.
I love books from this era and Grey did a fabulous job describing the clothes, the parties and the houses of this time. I'm hoping this will be a series as the ending really set it up for another book. This was the first Steampunk I've read and definitely will not be the last.
