Review by Suzdal
3 Stars out of 4

I was a bit surprised when someone recommended this to me, since I associated barbara Hambly's name with more traditional (dare I say generic) Fantasy. I figured it was simply a popular author's attempt to cash in on the goth/vampire fad. But it's actually a surprisingly original and entertaining thriller. The premise alone is intriguing: someone is killing the vampires of London by exposing them to sunlight while they rest. The vampires want it stopped but are helpess before a daylight stalker who seems to know too much about them. Enter James Asher, mild mannered professor and ex-secret agent. If he refuses to help them they'll kill his wife. But if he helps them is he any safer? The action is fast-paced and fun. Add in a decent mistery, some good characters (Ysidro is the most memorable vampire since Lestat) and a nice new explanation on the Vampiric Condition (every author has one, but Hambly's is quite good) and it adds up to a ripping good yarn. I ended up reading the last third of the book in one night. There's also a sequel, Traveling With the Dead, which I've heard is just as good or maybe better.
