Victorian Vampires

So yesterday i read Colleen Gleason's The Rest Falls Away. I had a good bit of time on my hands yesterday as i was hanging out at BF's waiting for a washer and dryer to be delivered. They were supposed to show up anytime after 8 and finally did about 3:15, ugh!

The book was ok i guess. Continuing a bit from yesterday's post, I don't know that it really belongs in the Romance section. At least, the last romance novel had a lot more sex. The Kushiel series has a lot more sex, and romantic scenes, and that is over in the sci-fi/fantasy section. I would say i didn't mind reading it, i just don't know that part 2 is going to be at the top of my next to buy list. The vampires are decent enough villians of the "i want to take over the world" variety. I personally found the interactions between Max and Victoria far more realistic and believable than those between Victoria and Philip. and weirdly enough, though i am fine to suspend disbelief about the vampires in general, i thought the bit about hypnotizing the victims or other people so they wouldn't remember anything a bit much.

  1. I'm glad you read it and eventhough the sequels may not be at the top of your list, if you like this kind of fiction I believe you would find each successive novel (as of Tuesday next week the third will be out) to be better than the one before. I think Colleen's writing is improving with each story.
