Please try again later. Format: Mass Market Paperback. I love both vampire tales and historical fiction set in the Regency period and loved "The Companion" with its new take on two common subjects - think how many trees are cut down each year to make Regencies or Vampire mass-market paperbacks.
As soon as I had finished "The Companion" I bought Squires' next two books which are set in the same world and with some of the same characters as "The Companion". The first I turned to was "the Burning" and I was really looking forward to another cracking tale. Stephan Sincai is a 2, year old Vampire who is nicknamed "The Harrier" - he's been trained to kill all the "made" rather than "born" vampires as they are considered dangerous. Stephan was the one to blame for Ashanti baddie in the previous book and so he is trying to atone for his guilt by his service to Rubius the head of the vampires.
Ann Van Helsing is a mad woman. Or is she? She has a strange psychic ability which means when she touches someone she gets all their thoughts and memories which has crippled her; she can only wear the same old clothes new clothes have to be "broken in" as she reads the seamstress and the weaver's thoughts and feelings and can't be touched by anyone, even her uncle. Her mother went mad on the night Ann was conceived because of this curse within the female line. So Ann lives as a recluse with her uncle and is his heir - he refused to marry and have children to prevent the disorder being passed down any further.
Unfortunately Ann's cousin Erich Van Helsing wants to get his hands on her money and plans to marry her and then commit her to an asylum after having his wicked way with her. But his plans go rather awry when Stephan Sincai turns up in their village and even stranger things than normal start happening. In , Anne released this book under the pen name Anne Rampling. This is just generally a funny thing to have happened. This film was very, very loosely based on the book of the same name and was terrible aside from one very important detail: Aaliyah.
Sadly, this was released six months after the plane crash that killed her at age 22 and was dedicated to her memory.
