|and Falling, Fly by Skyler White
Berkley Trade, (2010-03-02)
In a dark and seedy underground of burned-out rock stars and angels- turned-vampires, a revolutionary neuroscientist and a fallen angel must pit medicine against mythology in an attempt to erase their tortured pasts…but at what cost? Olivia, vampire and fallen angel of desire, is hopeless…and damned. Since the fall from Eden, she has hungered for love, but fed only on desire. Dominic O’Shaughnessy is a neuroscientist plagued by impossible visions. When his research and her despair collide at L’Otel Mathillide- a subterranean hell of beauty, demons, and dreams-rationalist and angel unite in a clash of desire and damnation that threatens to destroy them both.
I didn’t finish this book for a few reasons. While I enjoyed and applaud this author for inventing a new kind of vampire than what we’re all used to reading about it just didn’t stick with me.
I also found the sister pair up too distracting. It seemed like they were both fighting for the lead role of the book. I’m sure if I had kept reading I would have been proven wrong but I’m not sure.
If you enjoy urban fantasy with paranormal elements and new twists on the old classics then you may enjoy this read.
