"Intriguing from page one...White asks hard questions about desire, damnation, love and sacrifice in a beautiful, poetic way that will keep you utterly spellbound."—Anya Bast In a dark and seedy underground of burned-out rock stars and angels-turned-vampires, a revolutionary neuroscientist and a fallen angel must pit medicine against mythology in an attempt to erase their tortured pasts... Olivia, vampire and fallen angel of desire, is hopeless...and damned. Since the fall from Eden, she has hungered for love, but fed only on desire. Dominic O'Shaughnessy is a neuroscientist plagued by impossible visions. When his research and her despair collide at L'OtelMathillide—a subterranean hell of beauty, demons, and dreams—rationalist and angel unite in a clash of desire and damnation that threatens to destroy them both. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Warning: this book is written in present tense. I made it through three pages and gave up. I have huge issues with anything longer than a very short story written in present tense, and there's no way I'm slogging through an entire book.

I have to agree with AKKI and Jocy's reviews of this book. The premise is intriguing, but the execution is muddled and clumsy. There is so much going on (multiple points of view, multiple myths and theologies, even multiple planes of existence), it feels like the writer is simultaneously telling you too much and yet, not enough.

Great concept... But I could not sit through it.

And I do NOT think that Vampires are fallen angels of desire OR that they hookup with all and sundry.

The plot is somewhat interesting. The writing is on the poetic side and difficult to understand at times. The story takes off around page 220 and by the end it accelerate rapidly and leaves you empty with many questions you want to ask the author. It's as if the ending was rushed and some vital information about the connection of the characters has been overlooked.
