Dance on Fire review

Attention Fire Enthusiasts. Our novel was just reviewed by Mr. Andrew M. Boylan of Taliesin Meets the Vampires and can be read here. I recently read his novel, "Concilium Sanguinarius", which I thought was brilliant. I can say that now, right? He's already reviewed me and it's too late to change anything! With his constant reviewing of vampire literature and film, he has made himself one of the preeminent voices on vampires on the 'net.

Please use the link above to read the entire review on his blog. I will share his following comment: "The book itself, writing wise, reminded me of horror novels from the 70s/80s. The language used...was welcome as a departure from the dark urban fantasy that is currently vogue and also fit the cop story aspects well. Garcia would then spin the book towards a more cobweb festooned horror fantasy when describing the events in Romania. There were occasions Garcia would throw in a phrase that was so wondrously descriptive that the word poetic springs to mind. Occasionally I felt that characters took things a little too much in their stride and an even deeper exploration of the emotions of some of the characters might have balanced that aspect but generally Garcia created three dimensional and filled out characters."

I just want to thank Mr. Boylan for having taken the time to read "Dance on Fire" and for giving me his kind review.

We'll talk soon.


  1. Congrats on the review James! It's always a bit scary when someone else looks so deeply into you work and it looks like Taliesin really enjoyed it. Is there going to be a sequel?

  2. Thanks, Marissa. Yes, the second installment is currently entitled: "Dance on Fire: Flash Point"

  3. Awesome! I'm headed over to read it now while I finish my jalapeno flavored chips and cherries with lunch.

  4. James, that's wonderful! Congratulations on the book AND the wonderful review.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. Because of you, I have "South of Broad" on my reading list!

  5. Congrats on the book review. Every bit of publicity is good for future sales.

  6. Congratulations on your book and excellent review, James. It is so great when hard work is recognized and appreciated. Now you have the pressure of doing it again :)
    I have not read your book yet, but it will be on my list.
    Good luck with the second.

  7. Congrats James on the wonderful review!

    Thank you for stopping by my blog today. Your comment made me smile. :)
