I fell in love with these
characters, Lace and Firi, because, being written by
Wendy, I couldn't help myself. She has such a delicate
touch when she writes about the transformative powers of
love, and a way of developing characters so that their
problems, and their goals, become the readers. They
become, frankly, my problems and goals, and hence I got
sucked into this story so fast, that I did not want to
stop reading it. Plus I love her way of describing
Lace's tattered clothes, somehow so fitting for a
vampire in prison,his streaming hair, his graceful
gestures, all of it combines together to create this
wonderfully provocative being after whom the book is
Better still, in my mind, is the character of the young
human man, Firi, who carries a secret within him, that
he is in love with a vampire. In his world, vampires are
dangerous creatures to be hunted and experimented on. So
when Firi finds out that Lace is being kept, well, he
doesn't go in with guns blazing, instead he devises a
plan of rescue. A sensible, well thought-out strategy
that while it is sure to succeed, is fraught with peril,
which I adore.
Wendy's writing is always top-notch, and she carries me
away with her poetic prose. This sexy, well-crafted
story reminds me, as does most of Ms. Rathbone's work,
with the books and stories of Ray Bradbury - within the
pages of "Lace," there is melancholy, there is beauty,
and there is a trail of tattered autumn leaves
