FAN-COMMENT quoted with permission from Mona Ramouni - November 2005
I'm writing to you to let you know that Those of My Blood and Dreamspy are my favorite books. I am legally blind so must order them from the library, and I read them over and over again. Perhaps you don't think that's much of a compliment, but you should because those two novels are the ONLY books I've reread since I generally have an aversion to reading a book twice. Normally, that would be wasting time, but not in the case of Those of My Blood and Dreamspy.
In another email, Mona wrote to a publisher and let me post this note here:
I will read anything by Jacqueline Lichtenberg. I am one of those people
who read a book once and only once, no matter how good the bookis. I
have never reread a book in my life, at least not until I got hold
ofJacqueline Lichtenberg's Those of My Blood and the companion novel,
Dreamspy. I have read and reread those books so many times that the
librarians probably wonder what's wrong with me. Yet, each time I read
those novels, I find something new and intriguing in them, some other
dimension I hadn't noticed before. Were I able to get those novels as
e-books or in any other alternative format, copies I could treasure as
my own, I would be grateful. Truly, Those of My Blood and Dreamspy are
the most fascinating books I've ever come across, and if you knew how
much I read, how much I search for complex and driven novels,
|Lisa McCune Reviews THOSE OF MY BLOOD at SFsite.com and another review also here.|
In THOSE OF MY BLOOD Jacqueline Lichtenberg creates an
innovative, complex variation on the "vampire as alien
species." The gripping conflict between Titus, the hero, and Abbot,
the antagonist, features no real "villain," but instead a
humane vision of two half-alien vampires each taking actions he sees as
vital to their species' survival. Although the best interests of the
human and vampire races seem to clash, this novel's sympathetic
characters and tightly plotted story resolve the ethical quandary in
favor of cooperation, understanding, and compassion. It is a pleasure to
see this landmark work back in print.
