Book revew: Smoke and Shadows, by Huff

TitleSmoke and Shadows (The Smoke Trilogy, Book 1)
AuthorTanya Huff
Tagsfiction, paranormal, fantasy, vampires
Your reviewThis is the first of a trilogy, though it uses some of the characters from Huff's Blood Ties series. The focal character is Tony Foster, the gay street kid from Toronto. He now lives in Vancouver, as does Henry Fitzroi, the vampire who started life as the illegitimate son of King Henry VIII of England. Tony is now working as a production assistant on a third-rate TV show about a vampire detective. Things get stranger than usual when Tony notices shadows behaving in an un-shadowlike manner. The plot involves a wizard and a Shadowlord from another world. Sounds cheesy, perhaps, but Huff is an excellent writer, and the characters and plot are up to her usual standards.
