The GoldenThe Golden by Lucius Shepard

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Very strange book, but extremely well written and incredibly interesting. It was recommended to me by a friend and I'm glad I read it. It started off a bit slow. It reminded me of The Picture of Dorian Gray as far as style and dialogue. At first, there didn't seem to be anything vampiric about it at all (other than the characters being vampires, obviously), but as it progressed, it was dark and haunting. I liked the philosophies presented and I think I will pick up a few more of Shepard's novels. I liked his writing a lot. There were many parts of the books that stayed with me because of how eloquently written they were.
