Product description

Product Description

England, 1593:
Shakespeare’s stage is a vampire’s hunting ground.

Christopher Marlowe, poet and playwright, has played and lost his dangerous game of baiting England’s nobles. Betrayed and murdered, he finds himself transformed within a far more ancient game, in which he and others hunt humans as prey — while some of them hunt him. His only hope is the vampire who has resurrected him: Rósza la Loba, who traces her vampiric bloodline back to Alexander the Great.
His wits clouded, one eye blind from his death-wound, Marlowe is still determined to exploit his new life: seduction of men and women alike, power, immortality — and above all, a path to those who believe they have killed him. From the dark streets of London to the plot-riddled court of Queen Elizabeth, Marlowe will exact a terrible vengeance. But there are enemies more terrible than he has yet begun to grasp...

About the Author

Siobhan died in January 2011. She was a life-long student of English history, and a member of the Richard III society. She thoroughly researched the period, and the historical persons portrayed in the novel, though she made no attempt to have the characters converse in purely Elizabethan English, or, in the words of Josephine Tey, have the characters speak too "forsoothly," as she felt that, for all but a small number of modern readers, that distracts rather than attracts. She has, however, endeavored to avoid anachronistic modern slang, as she felt that just as distracting. Although this was her first novel, she has had short stories published including two in "Dreams of Decadence," one of which involved the main character of this novel some two hundred years after the events therein and was reprinted by ROC in "The Best of Dreams of Decadence" edited by Angela Kessler. Another story, A Bad Day in Sherwood was awarded first place in a national competition. She was working on, and had half completed, a sequel to Perfect Shadows, as well as outlines for a number of other novels concerning the major characters.
