I would say this was a different kind of book for me but lately I've been branching out a little regarding what I read, one of the advantages of the kindle and free books, this said I still like a romantic vein to run through them even if it's not the whole purpose of the book. I wasn't sure what to expect from this book and it did take me a little while to get fully in sync with it but once I did I became totally absorbed and just couldn't put it down and I mean that literally I fell asleep while reading it. It's a very interesting book the main character Drayton is something of an enigma not knowing how old he is or what he is, is he the angel of death, a vampire, a demon. He takes the life essence from people as they are dying, he knows their thoughts, feelings and pasts, he rights the wrongs they've left behind, is he an angel or something else entirely. It's not until the last book that we really discover anything about Drayton, he doesn't remember being born, has he been around since time began, we get glimpses into his past, some of the things he's done, what he used to be and how he's evolved.
One thing I didn't like was the cover apart from not really appealing to me, yes I can see the irony in this since I read the book but I don't think it's represents the contents it's looks more like a demonic Shrek than how Drayton is described.
I really enjoyed this book and would advise you to give it a try it might surprise you and since it's free all you've got to lose is a little time.
