From Last Call to On Stranger Tides to Declare to Three Days to Never, any book by the inimitable Tim Powers is a wonder. With Hide Me Among the Graves, it's possible that the uniquely ingenious Powers has surpassed even himself. A breathtaking historical thriller in which art and the supernatural collide, Hide Me Among the Graves transports readers back to mid-19th century London and features a reformed ex-prostitute, a veterinarian, and the vampire ghost of Lord Byron's onetime physician, uncle to poet Christina Rossetti and her brother, the painter Dante Gabriel Rossetti. A novel that, like all his others, is virtually impossible to pidgeonhole--or to resist--Hide Me Among the Graves is the taut, gripping, and utterly remarkable literary thrill ride that Tim Powers fans have been eagerly waiting for.

Christina & Dante Gabriel Rossetti & John Polidori--what's not to like? However, I found some of the world-building to be a little loose & sloppy. The writing style was a little too plain, too.

Very well written and inventive.

I did not like it, not one bit. I finished the whole thing, and wish I hadn't bothered. I recognize the writing is good, and it had a lot of plot, but I could not care about any of the characters, I found it too weird ( I don't read "horror", maybe I just don't like the type of book?), and rambling. Very disappointed.

Not a sequel but more a successor to Powers' phenomenal The Stress of Her Regard. I believe him to be one of the most talented writers out there right now. He makes the mystical and mythological calmly believable. I highly recommend this novel. Don't miss it.
