Beatrix is driving through Europe looking for adventure and that’s exactly what she finds when she’s stranded in a Czech village on Christmas Eve. Straying from the town after dark is something the townsfolk warn against but Beatrix follows the delicious scent of pastries into the arms of Augustin, the sweet sad vampire.
This is a beautiful little story that gives an added layer to the Heartblaze series that I’ve become quite hooked on. Roberts has the ability to create short stories without losing character strength or plot. The setting for this story was quite Gothic but the modern touches brought a reality to it. A nice addition.
