"Patricia Esposito’s haunting and thoroughly cutting edge vampire novel Beside the Darker Shore effectively combines gay romance, political intrigue and paranormal horror in ways few writers would dare attempt.... The story asks the age-old question of whether Man’s highest ideals are shining beacons leading us into the future, or just fragile dreams that crumble before the hot blooded drives of nature. At times a drunken dance of shadows and a rapid descent into madness, the story spares us nothing, not that first taste of innocent blood, nor the burning rays of the sun, nor a fledgling vampire clawing his way out of his own grave."
