From the very moment Dusan wakes from his 25 year sleep I am on the edge of my seat wondering exactly who he is, what he is and how he fits into the grand scheme of things. The picture is not pretty to start with as the concepts of good and evil seem blurred and distorted and I begin to wonder about some of the intentions and motivations of our potential hero. When our heroine enters the picture she is a creature of purity and light. Seemingly innocent and untouched by society she is a fey creature bathed in esoteric moonlight. Enter Poppets wonderful mix of reverence intertwined with irreverent humour when Aine turns out to be all those things and more. She is a spitfire, willful and determined with a love for carnally delicious doughnuts native to the Portland Oregon area. This is the second book of Poppets that I have read now and I appreciate her ability to incorporate the location into the essence of the book giving it personal meaning to people that know and love the area. As the story progresses and unfolds so does the tension. The reader is still kept on edge and wondering as the concepts of life, death and the true meaning of mercy are explored. Poppet has created an incredibly rich background story transforming a simple concept that many paranormal authors are overplaying into something of substance and new meaning which gave me intense pleasure as I slowly unwrapped the treasured gift of this story.
I laughed and I cried from the edge of my seat the entire way through this book and now that I am done reading I cannot stop smiling as I relive every delicious moment in my memories. Poppet took me on a journey in which she gave and then took away again only to give it all back with so much more.
I have read some amazing books this year but Dusan is my book of the year. If you only read one book this year make it Dusan because to do otherwise would be a very great loss. This book is a very solid 5 out of 5
Dusan contains language and adult humor along with graphic violence but is otherwise a clean book.
What am I referring to exactly when I say a book that defines an entire century? Well, three examples would be: In the 19th century during 1876 it was Mark Twain with "Tom Sawyer", in the 20th century during 1922 it was F. Scott Fitzgerald with "the Great Gatsby", and in the 21st century during 2011 it's Poppet with "Dusan" Dusanor how it's often pronounced, "the only book worth reading".
"Dusan" is a book with such potential for popularity it should be distributed at iHop because it will sell like hot cakes once readers get their finger on the pulse of today's bibliophilic best kept secret.

No - not this one. Dusan is something else entirely; a Soul Eater. We met him in the present day, after he's come out of a long period of sleep. Disoriented by the time and place he is in, it takes him a bit to catch up. But then he begins to do what we fear, he hunts. We fear for his victims and wonder why...who is this Dusan and why does he take souls?
The mood is just right throughout this story, layered with dark dread, textured with bits of backstory that intrigue us and pull us deeper into this world. At first Dusan seems a bad guy, but as we learn more about him, our perceptions change. He meets the lovely Aine and as we watch them drawn to each other, we see the erotic power and symbolism; what it means to be seduced, the danger, and the fear of death.
The author has done her homework, brilliantly setting the story in the Pacific Northwestern United States, using the locale in such a way it seems impossible it could take place anywhere else. Secrets unfold as the story continues; ancient clues and things foretold through the ages, building to a stunning climax. This book is full of surprises, from beginning to end.
I highly recommend it!
