Publisher's Summary

Fifteenth-century Venice is a safe haven for the masterless dregs of the vampire world, a city where they can live without the fear of retribution for violating another's territory. Still, there are plenty of ways for a young vampire to die in the glittering city, a lesson that prince turned pauper Mircea Basarab must learn quickly. But there are opportunities, too - in the service of a secretive courtesan, in the bed of a beautiful senator, and in the hunt for an ancient assassin. As a vendetta older than Venice itself comes to a climax, Mircea struggles to evade the dangers of his current life, to come to terms with his past, and to uncover the truth hidden behind a city of masks.

Great Backstory- Leaves You Wanting More

This is a back story for one of the main characters in this series. It surprised me at first, but once I got into it I really loved it! As usual, the author makes the characters like-able and interesting. This book also gives great insights into some parts of the story that have been hard to understand prior. I thoroughly enjoyed it!!

One of Karen Chance's best!

Loved this book, one of Karen Chances's best yet, especially if you are already intrigued by her characters. Good narration and voices as well.
