"Dick Hill uses a deep, masculine Irish brogue to characterize Sorcerer Hoyt MacCionaoith as he fights to the death with a centuries-old vampire named Lilith. After claiming Hoyt's twin brother as her own, she now wants Hoyt to join her vampire family. The goddess of battle, Morrigan, comes to Hoyt's rescue, but only to charge him with leading the greatest battle ever waged against Lilith and her demons. Hill portrays vampires with ragged, husky demonic whispers. However, his excellent narrative skills cannot salvage this unbelievable, unimaginative plot, or the one-dimensional characters who are impossible to keep track of. Roberts's venture into the dark side is uncharacteristically bad. G.D.W. (c) AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine"
