Inked Rainbow Reads appears to be having some website trouble, so here is the review that was posted for 'Isle of Illusions.'
This anachronistic but earnest tale charmed me despite itself. The sex is excellent, plentiful, and smoldering. The action is adventurey. The vampiric and other powers are believable. There's some violence, some gore, and lots of creepy.
Cyrus the ancient, dark-skinned vampire has been in love Lorenz the German doctor for ten years. That's the set-up. They make out. There is peril. There is setting and atmosphere.
It's apparently 1954? Suspending disbelief, however, is hobbled by the unnecessary dialect Lorenz uses. Every "ju" instead of "you" grates and takes me out of the story. Other poor dialogue choices, like Cyrus's use of "Baby" to refer to Lorenz (what is he, James Bond?) permeate. Technology sways from Victorian to way too modern.
Past all that is a story worth reading. Isles of Illusions is a nice afternoon jaunt through a haunted world."
