I am vociferously passionate about good books. And I hate adverbs.

ARC Review — Sleight of Heart, by Aisling Mancy

Sleight of Heart - Aisling Mancy

Oh my, I never thought I’d enjoy a vampire book again in my life, and here Mancy goes and steals my heart.

 

This storyline was fresh, as I’ve never read one about a Rroma man before. I have met many Rroma men and women in my travels, especially in The Camargue, in southern France, and what little they let me understand of their culture, rang true in this book. Of course, theirs is a very secluded culture, so it can be difficult to know what is and what isn’t. Here? It sang loudly of sincere truth.

 

I must admit, I haven’t met many vampires, though, so my viewpoint may be biased on that one, as I simply loved the lore in this story.

 

AND THERE’S A DRAGON. Just putting that out there, for future reference, and for some people I know who are interested in these things.

 

Mancy is the king of purple prose. He makes it fun to read again, and I also had to look up fourteen words in the dictionary while reading this, so that must be considered extra-bonus brownie points.

 

Personally, there was too much sexy times in this book, but if that’s what you like, here’s where you find it. Instead, I find that the true strength in this story lies in the chapters between the intimate moments, when there is running, and jumping, and fixing, and hoping, and thinking, and pining, and flying, and…and…and…

 

Whew. What a ride!

 

And then I realize this is Book 1 in a future series.

YAY!

 

There will be more!!!

 

*happy dance*
