Quotes & Awards

  • “Elevated and elegant…yet happily gory and perilous.”

    Los Angeles Times

  • “A classical alternative to the traditional tale, seamlessly weaving mordant humor, cheeky literary allusions, and outrageous encounters…I’m sure Byron himself would have been pleased.”

    Time Out London

  • “Holland composes his tale with great style and erudition.”

    San Francisco Examiner & Chronicle

  • “Truly sates the appetite for imaginative entertainment…Genuine Gothic thrills.”

    Orlando Sentinel

  • “An utter banquet of sex, terror, and death told in the poet’s own delectable turn of phrase…This is a work of literary scholarship positively wet with vibrant language and sense of place, exotic in its accuracy and lapidary love of detail…The book is really a tour de force…A beautiful, Byzantine historical suspense novel.”

    Boston Book Review

  • “Engaging and sophisticated…With this striking, highly original debut, Holland offers a valuable addition to the vampire legend.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Entertaining and ingenious.”

    Manchester Evening News (England)

  • “A darkly entertaining tale…The language is lush and melodramatic, and the twists and turns many.”

    Anderson Independent-Mail

    " The worst vampire book I've ever read. I didn't like the narrative style. It was just iffy, I only read it because I started it and I had to finish it. Don't read it. "

    " I liked this book for its idea, but I did not love it. But it's Keeper in my house and I've read it several times. Maybe later, when I have more time, I can give it a fair review and talk about the details. Will do. "
