Maggie Shayne

Years before the days of “sparkly” vampires there were the original ‘Twilight’ books, at least I always called them ‘Twilight’ as that word was in each title — the official title of the series was “Wings in the Night”.   And I waited impatiently for every single new release in Maggie Shayne’s series.

These were the vampires (and their ultimate mates) that I wanted to fall into their world with each new book’s release.  Passionate, mature, a heart wrenching combination of the past and the present with no true hope or plan for the future.  Some were evil at it’s worst, others were caught up in circumstances, and still others were innocent, for a while.

But, for me, they were believable — and it was no chore to imagine their world and fall into it as easily as visiting old friends.

I cared about their story — and that is probably the highest complement a reader can give to an author.  When characters are created in one mind and given to the reader who can recreate them and welcome them in as friends… that is pure magic.
