Book Description

The immaculate creature known as Florian Ribeni prized being a Vampire for he was vain enough to choose beauty and youth over wisdom and wise enough to appreciate a life without the boundaries of death, illness, or poverty. Not quite tied to gender preference Florian spent his nights lusting after the unattainable or engaging in sexual misadventures while shirking anything resembling responsibility. The last to serve his community he preferred the lighter aspects of life, fashion, gossip, good wine laced with sanctioned blood and seduction.

Florian loved seduction above all things and if not for a troublesome Elf, a demon bandit, his personal anger at witnessing the demise of Vampires, he would be leading the aimless, artless, and trite life that he adored. Then there was the Pixie, an inebriated sot with sudden affections and even more sudden dislikes. Beb decided Florian was his new best friend and offered his much unwanted and erratic help to the newly conscripted Runner. Chasing after a deviant Vampire and running from a cannibal cult the pair was determined to save the world—if only an annoying Mage and some arrogant demons would keep out of the way.

5.0 out of 5 stars First rate reading January 21, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
After reading Elf (another book by the same author that I highly recommend), I decided to see what else she had written. I’ll be the first to say – vampire reads are either hit or miss for me. Being blunt, I think an author really needs to have a certain ability to craft this type of character properly.

After reading Elf, I was hoping this book would be as good as Elf was a book that I hated to send end. Once again, the author hits the ball out of the park.

As with Elf, the author takes the time to educate the reader about the characters and matters unfolding. This makes the reading smooth and the story flow well.

Our main character, Florian Ribeni, loves the better things in life- parties, good food, gossip and seduction. Due to situations that occur, he finds himself thrust into the world of weapons and violence to protect against those who threaten against the Veil (the Veil in a nutshell is the “mist” or “drape” between the world of humans and mystical).

I won’t give you any spoilers but I was glad to see the return of the pixie in the character mix. I felt the author portrayed pixies in an excellent manner in Elf and was glad to see one crop up in this story.

I highly recommend this book (and also Elf). This author is someone who should be on your reading list.

The Review: (Four Stars)

Catering to the fantasies of your target audience's collective unconscious is the bedrock of big art-money - Rebel Without a Cause, Smells Like Teen Spirit. Fact: one word comes immediately to mind - Twilight. You think Harold Bloom reckons Hamlet's extraordinary for its science or philosophy? Here, Katri Cardew (that name!) takes all those wet seats and throbbing hearts to the panting ultimate of shameless odaxelagnia - The Immaculate Adventures of One Florian Ribeni, Book 4, with glossary. Fantasy becomes fantasy, all teeth and blood and nighttime gardens, murk and vaseline. "Martyc was beautiful with his ferocious scowl and bold movement" or "it was her obvious ennui despite being surrounded by those in various states of undress that intrigued the yet to be deflowered boy."

Anyone scared of being caught reading "vampire-erotica" should damn well be scared by the shamelessness of this novel. Anyone with the slightest pomp in their self-image would be mortified by the "yet to be deflowered boy." Both groups should steer clear. But pop cults like this are payola for those post modern enough to 'get' the weirdness, and those without dignity, taste, or arrogance. The relentlessness of the plot and ripeness of the flesh, make a first reading dazzling; a second comforting. Any book capable of being read twice is worth buying once.

If you think this just some chick's fantasy you're not thinking too hard - you're not looking at Hamlet here; if you want some pretensions to hide behind, you know where the "Classics" section is in Dymocks. By the way, plot, themes, and style are present also.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Smartest Vampire Fiction I've Read.... July 30, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have been a big reader of vampire romance ever since I read Twilight, but of late, I had become very bored with the genre. There are far too many books in this genre, and very few that are really even halfway decent. The writing in many ranges from average to atrocious and the stories are often completely illogical. That is why I was so surprised when I read Katri Cardew's book, “Vampiris Sancti: The Immaculate Adventures of One Florian Ribeni.”

This book is different from all the vampire romance books that I've read. In fact, it's an anomaly, and a good one at that. An intelligent vampire romance. Whoever thought that was possible? But this is why Katri's book is so good. It is very a very comprehensive work, full of intelligent details, and Katri writes about the world of vampires, elfs, demons, pixies as though it's actually real. She creates an extraordinary world, and brings it alive with her writing skills.

Florian Ribeni is one of the most interesting characters I've come across in fiction. A protagonist who is completely shameless, indulgent and self-centered, who cares for nothing and nobody except for the satisfaction of his own pleasure and lust. But even this self-indulgent man – vampire – can rise to extraordinary deeds when his cozy little world is threatened. Even the most unheroic person can rise above his innate unheroic character and preferences and become a hero.

I enjoyed this book so much that I immediately looked to see whether the writer Katri has written any other book. And I was pleased to find out that she has written many, which is simply wonderful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Paranormal Fantasy at its Best June 12, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Katri Cardew presents original realms with a writing style rich in description and full of diverse creatures’ where trepidation seems the norm.

The main character, Florian Ribeni moved on from humanity the moment he had accepted his life as a vampire, living a life of self-indulgence and seduction. After ending up on the roof of the building holding the Velave Ball he finds himself caught between vanity, bricks, Gargoyles, Raiders, Martyc & an Elf does his life he so loves turns upside down. Leading to a path as a Runner, an influential position with escapades like no other to protect against the danger that may lead to certain doom, if immortal worlds are relieved to the mortal ones.

The events that unfold within this book are not for the fainthearted and would entice anyone looking for a bloodthirsty retreat into a world full of mystical creatures & mere mortals.

The writer had developed realms and characters with depiction in such a way I was utterly engrossed from beginning to end making this one of my favorite reads. This is the perfect book for people who want to retreat into paranormal fantasy.
