Book Description

Talisen is in love with a man who died 200 years before she was born.
Safe crush?

Guess again.

There's no substitute for the real thing...
Having grown up with her grandmother's stories about heroic Captain Benedikt, Talisen has come to feel a passion for him no other man has ever inspired, in spite of the centuries that separate his lifetime from hers.

He longs to be that man for her...
From the moment Ellory meets Talisen, he aches to be the one and only man who holds her heart. But how can she love him once she learns the price she must pay for the truth she's seeking?

Editorial Reviews


"This one came highly recommended from a friend, and I was not disappointed. A delightful blend of historical mystery and romance...Tonally, this one reminded me a little of Chelsea Quinn Yarbro's Saint-Germain saga--and that's a big compliment."

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant writing - exquisite passion March 21, 2009
Janet Elizabeth Jones sweeps the reader into a different time and place seamlessly. The rhythm and majesty of her words elevates this book from the common vampire story and into a classical work of literary art. While this may make the book sound too lofty for a sensual romp, that is far from true. The scene when Ellory teaches Talisen how to play pool, using both his own body as well as his powers to show her the truth of what he is made the fine hair on my neck stood up. It was eerie, yet one of the most sensual scenes in the book. It's also the pivot point around which the rest of the book rests. I adore vampire books, and treasure the many I own. This ranks above them all. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Revenant speaks to my heart... and other parts. March 28, 2009
I have read many paranormal romances. Revenant has raised the bar with intellegence, maturity and amazing sensuality. Ms Jone's writing is viseral. I feel the heat of the lightning or the light touch of this vampire's hand. Each character is so fully written that I can smell them. Her complex plot is full enough to carry the book on it's own, But it is The People in the pages that make me love it -- each time I read it. Nothing will come close except for when Ms Jone publishes a sequel. I can't wait!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Vampire with a Heart November 19, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
An interesting take on the age old vampire story. A vampire with a 'heart' and a 'soul' without fear to fight for the woman he loves.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not your ordinary vampire book! November 18, 2013
By Angie
Format:Kindle Edition
This book took me by surprise. I didn't realize it was a vampire book, but this is different than other vampire books (I mean it in a good way). I was surprised that there are revenants and how they are created and how they can survive. Ellory didn't realize his link to Talisen, but when you finally find out it makes sense. It was a really good book and I am looking forward to see what happens with Meical.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great supernatural romance November 17, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this book. I loved the storyline. It was well thought through, keeps you interested till the last page. It was not particularly hard to guess what was to happen given the title, but apart from that it is a beautiful romantic supernatural story and love, loss and destiny.
