A vampiric "condition" that taints the blood and is transmitted as if it were a deadly STD - but vampirism turns it's host into a killer, while the STD kills it's host.
A vampire so old he can no longer fake a pretense to assimilate to contemporary humans, but who searches for a cure.
The dichotomies and parallels abound in the fourth addition to the Channeling Morpheus series continuing to set this series apart from it's generic counterparts.
"The homicidal eye-candy I'd hooked up with had more needs than I did."
"You let something stick, and the next thing you know, you start accessorizing it."
"What I wanted to know was, if I was a mutant, why didn't I have X-ray vision and a cool spandex costume?"
Back in Wild Bill's head, we are treated to a plethora of quotable one liners - dryly delivered, humorous and insightful. Normally a nice, quiet, place to retreat to, now Wild Bill's mind is an uncomfortable sanctuary for him as he struggles to face the reality of how contagious his vampirism is and the truth in his emotions regarding Michael.
Price continues to provide the reader with an underlying commentary while maintaining a campy mood and blood rushing sex scenes. Again cementing that this series is sexy vampire smut to feed your fantasies laced with subtle context to feed your brain.
Definitely a more interesting character, I’m enjoying his comments and I’m starting to believe a little bit more in the feelings they had for each other. I still think there is more lust than love here, but I can see that’s beginning to change.
I think is necessary to see the whole series as one, I don’t think this one work as a standalone. There wasn’t much of a plot in this one, but seeing it as only one part of a series is fine. I really enjoy it, I’ll keep reading the other books in hopes the relationship keep developing and wishing to know more of Wild Bill.
TAINTED - Uh,oh....somethings wrong with Michael. Wild Bill sees the changes, and if it's what he's thinking, it isn't pretty. On a positive note, the guys are growing in their relationship. No, it isn't hearts and flowers, but what they have feels much more real than many love stories. Which leads to the question, is this book a romance? Not reeeeely. Well, sort of. Each book has a separate plot that is independent of the relationship, but without the relationship, I don't think the story really works as well. So we will call this a paranormal romance. As always, Wild Bill's point of view is a delight. But I applaud the author's choice to rotate POVs. Very smart decision.
I've now reread this whole series twice and I'm itching to re-immerse myself again in this WILD RIDE! :-D
It's surprising how complete each novella is unto itself. There are continuing plot lines, but still each book contains it's own very unique and developmental episode in the lives of Michael and Wild Bill!
