Hunted by magic, beset by evil, the Nightwalkers face their darkest hour yet. And when the unthinkable happens, only one legendary male has the power, the will, to save them: Adam. . .

For 400 Years He Was Lost To Her, But He Is Hers Tonight. . .

From their first tantalizing touch, Jasmine knows he is different. What other lover could unlock her tight control, flood vampire senses jaded by a lifetime of decadent self indulgence? Centuries ago, when he disappeared without a trace, she had given up hope of ever fulfilling the promise of incomparable passion. But here he is, against the very laws of nature, ready to bring down their most vicious enemy, ready to bring her blood to the boiling point. . .if she will only let him.

Pleasure rules the night.

Kirsch says that Theodore Roethke “wrote best when he could dislocate language into a nearly private idiom,” which is what Eliot said the modern poet must do: “to force, to dislocate if necessary, language into his meaning.” Only a poet like Donald Justice, Kirsch notes in another essay, “who is ...

Phillips wants as much as anything to acknowledge, even more fully and subtly than Freud himself did, the true force of that belated fiction, the death instinct, and to accept death as an ‘organising principle’.
