"Poetic and melancholic, the novel is a cross between True Blood and Interview with the Vampire. This is a coming-of-age vampire tale complete with mystery, romance and suspense that will surely entertain fans of the genre." --The US Review Of Books
"From the dank and rugged northern California coastline to the vibrant San Francisco club scene, Leah Reise has created a vibrant and surrealistic world and populated it with relatable characters. Her rookie novel features a sisterly love story, darkly passionate vampires, and rivalries between ancient blood thirsty factions. Freshly undead, Edrea is smart, sexy, and fiercely protective of her baby sister, a girl who looks for and finds trouble behind every iron gate." --City To Country Magazine
"What I love about this story, first, is the author's ability with description. Reise has a gift for painting the scene without over-telling, and still offering enough detail to allow for vivid imagery. ... second ... that much of it takes place in Sonoma County locations. Reise doesn't disappoint, taking her characters to Bodega Bay and Santa Rosa, though much of the story is set in San Francisco. ... third ... how large a role family plays in The Beauty in Darkness. There are definite themes that take place from both Edrea's old and new life, which I'll let you find out on your own to avoid any spoilers. All in all, I highly recommend this book for anyone who enjoys supernatural and vampire fantasy." --The Press Democrat

Through Edrea's actions and her adventure, I discovered that she discovers the beauty in the situation as much as she hated it. She also, made peace with it and silenced her inner demon she had to fight while adjusting to the new life which awaited her. The story was very interesting and showed through all the chaos; family will always be there even through the darkest times.
Read it. It's very good.
The novel has enough suspense, horror, and spicy vampiric sex to please fans of its genre. But The Beauty in Darkness distinguishes itself by its moving portrayal of the deep bond between the two sisters, Edrea and Rena, and its emphasis on both family ties and the natural world as sources of inner strength. Additionally, the conflict between the two vampire factions, one of which (the Shevet) is of Jewish origin, summons—for this reader at least—associations with the horrors of World War II, adding depth to the story. These elements make this book a unique contribution to vampire fiction.
There is plenty of action and sometimes very touching, having to get out your box of tissues for some of the scenes.
I would recommend this book to anyone having a sister you are lose to or you don’t have to have a sister. The book is very touching for all readers.
