A vampire romance novella by bestselling Ukrainian author Victor Nochkin

Did you think Russians (and Ukrainians) don't write vampire romances? Well then, how about Night, Rain and the City - a beautifully disturbing vampire fantasy novella by one of Ukraine's leading fantasy authors Victor Nochkin?

Set in the medieval world of heroic fantasy, Night, Rain and the City is a vampire novella with a difference. The four stories of its main characters gradually intertwine until all four come together in the rain-drenched streets of a night city to fight the battle for one lost soul: the soul of a vampire. The love line is tastefully done: erotic but definitely within the limits of the acceptable, it adds a finishing touch to this piece of medieval fantasy romance - leaving the reader longing for something the novella doesn't quite reveal.

About the author:

Viktor Nochkin is a bestselling Ukrainian fantasy writer, author of 25 traditionally published novels and numerous novellas and short stories that appeared in a number of SF/F publications. Night, Rain and the City is one of the rare translations of his fantasy novellas into English.

Happy reading!
