It's almost like to reading a full-length novel there is so much in such a short space! That, by the way, isn't a bad thing at all, because the richness of the detail, culture and legends leaps off the page at you and draws you in.
I like how Janus Gangi draws two separate times and tales together, using the method of bards of old, and the telling is vivid and intense. Read this slowly to savour the detail, and if you get a bit lost, no worries, go back a bit to re-savour it! Elisabeth Rose is an excellent starter, I believe, to the main course - the Stolen Moments novels (which I can't wait to sink my teeth into!).
Even now, hours after finishing it, I can see the Taurus Mountains, smell the devastation of Jericho...and the little twist in the tale at the very end will stay with me for a long time.
There is the need of prompt editing for punctuation, especially the use of commas, semi-colons and "--". I also found quite a few glitches in verb tenses.
I do not read Arabic, but I do read French. It is my opinion that if a foreign language is included this should be with done correctly, especially if a leading vampire is speaking -- vampire leaders are supposed to be perfect.
Once the above is corrected I am sure that I could enjoy the story in all its worth.
BTW, the story is told in just the right "length." Not too short... Not too long...
Elizabeth Rose tells the story of vampyres and vampires, good and bad angels and much, much more. Towns, needed to protect themselves from unconquerable evils. But the thing that really held my interest throughout was the way she described the setting and intertwined it with actual storyline. I felt like I was among the crowd Elizabeth Rose tells the story to. I have never been to the Middle East before, but after reading it, I feel not only as if I have, but that she has lived most of her life in that region of the world.
I excitedly await for the next great book in the series by Janus Gangi.
A well told story with deep connections to common lore, and a descriptive original style combine to make this little book a real treasure! The marvelous settings in Syrian desert and the references to OT events are well researched and brought to life for the reader vividly.
Janus' description of Syria conjures up a rich and mysterious image. I could almost smell the spices in the food and feel the warm of the sand. I felt as if I too was sitting around a fire listening to Elizabeth and Vincent tell their story of an ancient battle.
My biggest complaint with Elizabeth Rose is that it was too short. I want to know more about Sehkmet and Tias. The story behind their marriage *has* to be interesting.
