No creature is beyond redemption except by their own choice. Or so it seems in the world of vampires in Viguie’s Kiss of Night. Yes vampires were once the most depraved of humans now cursed to walk this earth many lifetimes over and suffer the loss of human companionship though not the loss of human emotion. Despite their depravity however in the world of Viguie’s vampire lore the curse also carries with it hope. Hope for all but those who choose to cling to their depravity and lock out the soul that could change their fate for eternity.
Raphael and Paul must convince the humans that war is at hand and that a lesser evil must be endured in order to prevent a catastrophe of titanic proportions. Viguie brings Prague and the French countryside to life for readers as new characters quickly grow into the role of old friends. Susan, Wendy and their family though grieving the loss of a matriarch who insisted on having the services in her homeland of Prague, still show their mettle and personalities through the confusion and tears. Viguie even confuses things by disguising characters as opposite of what they are some that appear as if they should be evil are good and some that appear as if they should be good are evil however no one knows who is who and they all try to convince everyone else that the others are the bad guys and you can’t trust anyone. The suspense is palpable throughout the book and Viguie keeps readers on their toes with new twists at every juncture of the plot. I look forward to the next installment of the Kiss Trilogy coming in 2012. (ISBN#9780446570862, 304pp, $14.99)

This was an E-book which I read on my smartphone. Reading on my phone is new to me and while I will probably always prefer the feel and sensations of reading a paper book, digital format on a smartphone has its purpose and pros. For one reading on the phone is easier on the eyes than the laptop screen and sometimes a book is only available in digital formats.
