Sabella, or the Blood Stone *slight SPOILER*
on November 4, 1999
Alright, this is a slight ** SPOILER ** so if you don't want to know what this is about, this is your chance to NOT READ THIS REVIEW!

That said, this was the first of Tanith Lee's books that I ever read. The setting is another world, Novo Mars, and the main character is a vampire. This is an incredibly well written book, with descriptions so lush and rich that you can feel them yourself. Tanith Lee's writing is seductive: you'll want to live in that big house on the plateau and listen to the music that Sabella puts into the tape deck, watch the dust dance in the air, pull the long blinds closed to blot out the sun, drink pomengranete (sp?) juice, bleach you hair and run wild at night with the young boys that can't say no to her exotic beauty, and discover what you REALLY are... Get this book if you can! A fabulous tale of love, lust, intrigue, and self-discovery. Amust for any fan of Tanith Lee, vampires, or science fiction tales.
There IS a reason Tanith Lee got nominated so many times for World Fantasy Awards... :)=
