      deathspellDespite turning into a vampire thing, this started off interesting. I think the concept has been done better Michael G Manning springs to mind but the plot was compelling and the romance didn't interfere, although nor did it really add much to the story. I'd read another set in the world, just to see where things ended up.

      The Premise:As a child, Christian is witness to his father's murder at the hands of men who can kill without touching and whom blades do not harm. He barely escapes with his life, bearing with him a pendant and a scroll, all he has left of his father. He swears vengeance, but his only clue is the red cloak of the perpetrator, and his sigil, a flame within a circle.Christian becomes a mercenary and devotes his life to the art of killing, determined someday to confront and kill his father's murder [...]

      4.5 really ;)Dear me, this was one fast-paced read. Took me three nights, but I've only got a few hours to steal from my bedtime, so If I had it my way, I would have finished it in one long draw of breath. Won this book in a lottery and also, the author is a good long time friend, and this their latest baby (correct me if I'm wrong). Got both the e-book and the pretty pretty signed copy to shine off my shelf along with my two Flynn's. Must say it's one of these books I'd buy solely for the cover [...]

      If you're looking for rogues, magic, and strained family dynamics, this is a read for you. Christian Richardson is my new favorite mess child. When he was young, he witnessed his father's murder and has been on the run and on the hunt ever since.The characters are compelling and not one-note. My favorite relationship was the ever-evolving tension between Christian and his brother. Dawes does a great job highlighting both brothers' perspective on life. His brother wants to leave the past behind w [...]

      *spoiler alert* This could have been so much better if it wasn't a vampire book. And I had no idea it was a vampire story until almost the end. It didn't need to be a vampire story - it was doing well enough on its own supernatural theme. The bisexual male protagonist made it feel like a ripoff of Anne Rice's vampire chronicles.
