Mark Jensen is Jonathan Vargaís
personal assistant. Mark organizes Jonathanís schedule,
meets with the gallery owner who sells Jonathanís art work,
and gets Jonathan the feline blood he needs to survive.
Jonathan has the Human Hemovore Virus. Being V-negative when
your boss is V-positive makes things very tricky for Mark.
Whatís worse is not being able to touch the man youíre in
love with. Jonathan being V-positive becomes the least of
their problems when an old enemy starts hunting them,
demanding what belongs to him.
Things are humming along quite normally for Mark and
Jonathan. Mark is trying to locate more feline donors for
Jonathan, Jonathan is painting his black canvases that only
V-positives can see, and Mark is still hiding his
ever-growing attraction to Jonathan. Then all hell breaks
loose. Dead bodies suddenly start turning up and Mark and
Jonathan are on the run. Price creates another fascinating
world with Hemovore, where the unusual becomes
the norm, and the norm becomes odd. A good portion of the
world has become V-positive in Hemovore, and
most of those who arenít, wish they were, or wish they knew
one. Priceís twist on the vampire is fascinating and fresh.
Mark is attracted to Jonathan but afraid of him at the same
time. Itís not a great relationship builder. Bloodbonding
is an act as intimate as sex. Mark and Jonathanís romance
is angst-filled and inevitable. I wasnít ready for
Hemovore to end when it did. Hopefully there will be
more to come. Jordan Castillo Price is the Quentin Tarantin
