The re-animated corpse of a suicidal, junkie, male whore vampire."
Jazriel's description of himself.
Others have more colourful and explicit opinions about him! Jazriel is the least obvious character to join the pantheon of literature's heroes; vain, hedonistic, insecure and not too bright. Harsher demons then most haunt him - demons like hope and optimism. He is also beautiful, charming and recklessly courageous.
With the Dark Kind's future hanging in the balance, their only hope of survival is the unlikely pairing of this dissolute wreck of a blood-drinker and Gabrielle Railton, a feisty, vampire-hating human.
Blood Lament continues the story of the Dark Kind; eternally youthful, amoral beings of the night, who have preyed on man since the dawn of recorded history but who now, in turn, are in danger of being preyed upon by their enemies.
