05 Book Lovin' Bitches Ebook Tours review: venice vampyr by Tina Folsom

"It is the city of mirrors, the city of mirages, 
at once solid and liquid, at once air and stone." --Erica Jong


Venice Vampyr 1
as the noise and revelry of the Venetian Carnival continue in the night, Isabella Tenderini, widow, finds herself on her way home and rescues Raphael Di Santori from drowning in one of the canals. she brings the stranger home and takes care of him. unknown to her, Raphael is a vampire. upon waking up, he thinks his rescuer an angel and vows to thank and possess her in more ways than one.
Venice has always appealed to me as one of the interesting places i would want to visit ever since i read Erica Jong's Serenissima. thanks again to Tina Folsom, she brought me vicariously back to this city. this time, she introduced me to a world of vampires, rich nobles, merchants and secret societies.
i loved the way she included photographs of the city from her own collection to mark the end and/or beginning of each chapter. as a very visual person, this helped make the story more vivid for me and made my reading more enjoyable. 


Venice Vampyr 2
the only "problem" i have with Venice Vampyr, however, is i find it too short and i wanted to read more. i did not want to take leave of Raphael, Isabella, Dante, the Guardians of the Holy Waters and the city of Venice just yet. what a relief to know that the second book Final Affair is out!
i would like to inform everyone that this book contains very explicit and graphic sexual situations, voyeurism and other taboos that may make some readers blush to the core so be forewarned.
this is my third Tina Folsom read and i can say that i won't ever get tired of reading her books. from the realms of Olympus down to the streets of San Francisco and all the way to the palazzos of Venice, her stories and characters are as unforgettable as they are beautiful, sexy and passionate.

*Venice Vampyr 1 and 2  are available at Amazon. both are sold separately or offered as a bundle. for more information about Tina Folsom and her work, please visit http://www.tinawritesromance.com/ or her Facebook page
