Review of Blood & Sex 1 by Lisabet Sarai

A wonderful and flattering new review is up at http://www.lisabetsarai.com/michaelreview.html

Here’s a clip of what the reviewer has to say about my book Blood & Sex, Vol. 1: Michael.

One thought on “Review of Blood & Sex 1 by Lisabet Sarai

  1. WOOT! Fantastic review! I’m impressed, then again I did read book 1 (erm, most of it…got sidetracked with writing, sorry!) But it was the most original vampire story I’ve ever read, and I’d stopped reading vampire stories because you could literally take one out and superimpose it with another.
