This is an interesting spin on vampirism. We get a little background on Lark whose on the run from the police because she was framed by her boyfriend. Homelessness and hunger make strange bedfellows literally in this piece, where Lark meets a sophisticated, mysterious woman who claims to be a vampire. I have to say I enjoyed watching the relationship develop between the two. Though, Lark's instances of borderline stupidity can sometimes be distracting. She is saved as a character by naturally having a warm heart. I would have liked our vampire to have been fleshed out a bit. For instance, her life is an utter mystery except for the fact that she is extremely rich. She has this sharp, demanding personality up until towards the end...then there is a softness that is almost unbelievable. All in all I hope to see more of the two, or at least some kind of prequel.

A great lesbian vampire romance novella. Madon does a great job with her characters and injecting humor. Lark is relatable and very funny and Thea is dark and dreamy. I love watching the vampire play the hero and Madon does a great job of complicating this storyline.
I went into this expecting a quick, steamy read. I got that, yes, but also a really nice love story. The nods to old vampire folklore like the obsession with counting things were a nice touch, but I mostly just thoroughly enjoyed the sweet romance between Lark and Thea.
