I read the Kindle version of this over 2 days during Christmas break and I was instantly hooked. The first chapter really had my attention. I liked the historical context, the mystery, the romance. This book really had it all. I tend to like more SciFi reads, but the author made this book very accessible. I liked her twist on vampire mythology, I liked the naughty bits, and I especially liked. There really was nothing I didn't like in this book. It was a delight.

Avalon Revisited (Blue Moose Press 2010) by Olivia M. Grey was my first introduction to Steampunk fiction, a genre blending science fiction, fantasy, history, horror, Victorian, and speculative fiction. Since I met Ms. Grey, I've been introduced to this new and intriguing subculture, traversing the world-form the wilds of London to the mayhem and extremity of the Burning Man.

Carefully researched, Ms. Grey's writing style kept me intrigued until the very end. I was able to walk with the characters through cold nights "full of murder and monsters" ( (81). The protagonist, Arthur, a vampire, is both the subject and narrator. He is by his own admission a man who "wasn't polite company" (7). He meets Avalon, a dark-haired beauty who obsesses and distracts him. She is quite complicated and you're never sure about how his pursuit of her will go until the very end because of a key conflict: He is a vampire and she a vampire hunter. He says, "Of all the women I've had in my time, I fall in love with a vampire hunter. Of course" (86). Though he knows his obsession of Avalon is self-destructive, he says, "This was love. This agony. This suffering. This sinking feeling in my chest. Feeling unable to live without her. Knowing I could not live without her. Knowing I would do anything for her, even if it led to my own ruin, for I was nothing without her" (187).

At no point did I lose interest in this sexy, vampire tale, and at no point did I feel I left Victorian England, in spite of the anachronisms associated with Steampunk fiction. I highly recommend this novel. It's not your typical vampire read, and the skilled craft of O. M. Grey will keep you reading till the very end. You may even be motivated to show up at a Steampunk conference or read more in this genre. You can read more about Olivia Grey here (O.M. Grey is a pen name for Christine Rose): [...] Olivia Grey's blog is [...]

I will be brutally honest in this review. I read one chapter a night to begin... the chapters are not long by any measure, I was not in the right mindset when this book became available to me. I put it down after the 5th chapter and waited two weeks to pick back up. Good thing I chose Friday night to begin anew because I started from the beginning and the characters had much more life and before you knew it I was sitting on my couch in the early hours of Saturday with a finished book in my hand.

Very good read, maybe allow yourself privacy for the wide range of facial expressions needed to absorb completely what these characters are feeling. You'll grin that devilish grin A LOT!

Avalon Revisited has strong paranormal and romance elements with a dash of Steampunk thrown in for good measure. Set in Victorian England, it tells the story of a 300-year old vampire and the woman who captures his fancy, touching his cold, dead heart after centuries of ennui. The bad news for him? She's also a vampire hunter on the trail of several recent, mysterious murders. Our hero had nothing to do with those - or did he?

The book is well paced, has a few solid action scenes, and some rather adult content in several places. It is not without flaws, but these are generally minor - a typo here and there or the occasional stray word - things I find easily forgivable, particularly from small press titles. I enjoyed this book a great deal. I'm usually slow at reading books, but I whipped through this in (for me) a relatively short time.

I had a lot of fun with this book. The premise is that there's a vampire in London in the steampunk Victorian era of the 1800's, but rather than just blithely hunting down his next victim, he falls prey to a weakness he thought he had purged in his first life: love. Yep, he falls in love with a remarkable woman, and of course, this woman wants nothing to do with him.

That, by itself, might not have been enough to pull me along, but this particular vampire is no ordinary undead charmer. No, he's the older brother of wife-decapitating Henry VIII. Now, Henry and his six wives are long-dead by the time this story rolls around, but his older brother Arthur is still around and sucking blood. Having just watched The Tudors last year, this was an amazing twist, because in addition to dealing with his current life in London, Arthur has plenty of fresh reasons to ruminate on the aftermath of his original death.

On top of that, the writing was good, I cared about the characters, and the plot twists were surprising without being completely out of left field. It also had some pretty sexy passages as well. It wasn't quite one-handed reading material, but I will say this: I read two of the sexier bits in bed with company... with very pleasant results.

So, this one gets the thumbs up. If vampires, steampunk, or the Tudor dynasty are your thing, give it a look.
