Ever since he sold his club to follow his lover, Kunal, the vampire Zavian has wondered what he got himself into.  He’s especially concerned when Kunal plans to do some “charity work” getting rid of a horde of revenants in a creepy town.  Kunal tries to get Zavian to leave, but Zavian is determined to help, no matter what happens.

All Hallow’s End is definitely not for the faint of heart.  This story has a lot of violence, blood, and gore which might bother sensitive readers.  If you like the darker side of vampires, however, you’ll enjoy this story.  Zavian, despite his occasional complaining, shows his loyalty and commitment to Kunal in this story, even though Kunal behaves recklessly.  The suspenseful atmosphere and tense action kept me on the edge of my seat, and the contrast between Zavian and Kunal’s encounters before and after the fight with the revenants showed the depth of their feelings for each other.  While this story is not a “traditional” romance, Anah Crow infuses her flawed and sometimes violent characters with a great deal of emotion, leading to a satisfying ending. 

*While this can be read on its own, I recommend reading One Definition of Tragedy first
