The most captivating part about Montano's world is his descriptions. I can't count how many passages or paragraphs I re-read over and over again just because I wanted the vivid imagery to stay in my head. Montano does not fool around in this. He's a master of narrative description, making each part of his haunting and strangely familiar world seem like something that can actually exist. I found myself excited to see the next setting in the story only because I couldn't wait to read how Montano explained it.
I'm glad that, in a time when all vampires are written as tragic, romantic heroes, Montano reminds us why we used to fear the night. These vampires are not anti-heroes, but malicious demons who seek to destroy the human race. Though they play only a minor role in this first book, it was easy to detest and fear them by seeing them through Eric Cross' (the protagonist) eyes. The Ebon Cities, onyx-black pillars kilometers high that the vampires use as their homes, sound like something straight out of hell and I can't wait to visit one, vicariously through Cross, I mean.
About the only real downside to this story was the supporting cast. Told entirely through Eric's POV, most of them don't last very long and the ones I did invest time in getting to know were often killed before they could shine. Aside from that, I enjoyed this dark novel and am looking forward to the next installment in the series.
I'm not overly fond of vampires and vampire stories, but from the very first word, this book sucked me in and refused to let go until the last.
Dark and grim, the landscape was beautifully painted in nightmares. The creatures were imaginative, I just wish a few of them were more described, as I assume they are in future books. Also, I wish there was more about that camel. I really grew attached to the poor creature. I think that's my only complaint, in fact, was that there wasn't more about the camel. Does he come back in a later book? I feel like there was a story there that we're not being told.
All 6 of the following books have been added to my wishlist. I can't wait to see where this story goes! A few minor typos but nothing that detracted from the story for me. I will definitely be recommending this book to other readers.
