You will meet Alasdair, the Ancient, the nightwalker. And you will not forget those whose lives he touches, almost as memorable and just as nicely crafted: the lovers Jeffrey and Bruce, the special friend Edgar, the curiously vulnerable and sympathetic Jules …
The story is intricate and well woven, leading to a climax and dénouement that I will not spoil, but I will say that I look forward to another journey into Griffith’s remarkable universe.
A well-crafted tale of vampire and human lust, longing, and love
My mouth dropped open when reading Alasdair’s email to Bruce, and my eyes lingered on the page. I had to re-read the email three times before I could turn the page.
So complex and vivid, the emerging desires instilled into Jules and Bruce’s minds. When Alasdair provoked the thoughts of Bruce and his childhood memories, what a rush of an experience.
Imaginative, detailed scene setting, history recording and explosive feeling abound while already captivated being caught within my own imagination living inside the story. I could not put this book down. I was frustrated when sleep and work interfered.
Best book quote ever: “Race you to the shower.” He smiled, touching himself. “How about brace yourself in the shower?” Griffith, Kathy (2015-02-25). The Ancient (Kindle Locations 1897-1899). . Kindle Edition.
Imaginative, complex and vivid... Well written. Thank you!
