Wonderful artwork by Linsner. I think he is trying to break away from Dawn a little bit but the story is less lyrical than any of the Dawn stories. The return of Esque is nice and he is more berserk than ever. I wanted to like this book more than I did but it seemed more like a backstory than anything else. I look forward to the inevitable sequel. How will Dark Ivory quench her thisrs for blood not that she's accepted that she IS a vampire?
