On a First World War battlefield vampire Karl von Wultendorf struggles to free himself from his domineering maker, Kristian. 

The Neville sisters flourish in decadent, hedonistic London society in 1923: champagne, parties and the latest illegal substances. All except Charlotte, the middle of the three sisters who hides in a corner wishing she were back in Cambridge helping her professor father with his scientific experiments. 

When Charlotte meets her father’s new research assistant Karl, it is the beginning of a deadly obsession that divides her from her sisters, her father and even her dearest friend. What price are they willing to pay to stay together?

I loved this book! I savored every moment.   It had a little different approach to other stories.   I can't believe I have to wait until April for the next book!   Read this!   You will enjoy it.

Five years have passed since Kristian, self proclaimed God of the vampires, allowed rebellious Karl van Wultendorf to go his own foolish way. Now he demands his subordinate return to his castle overlooking the Rhine to genuflect to his creator. Karl knows he must adhere to the summons, but remains defiant refusing to worship Kristian, as he will visit on his time not his ¿master¿s¿ schedule.

Karl meets with Cambridge science Professor Neville to help him study vampirism in order to eradicate Kristian. However, a distraction in terms of Neville¿s reticent daughter Charlotte surfaces as he and Charlotte begin to fall in love but Kristian learns of her and her family. He has a new weapon better than banishment into the cold Crystal Ring dimension for he believes he can force his disobedient rebel to kneel or watch the Neville¿s drained of blood one at a time with Charlotte being the ultimate pawn caught in his web.

Fans of vampire tales with a strong romantic subplot will appreciate A TASTE OF BLOOD WINE. The story line provides an exciting, but different approach to much of the mythos and that requires some worthwhile but slower pacing explanations. Kristian is quite a superego maniac, but his use of the Nevilles as cannon fodder in a chess game of life and death makes for fabulous reading especially with the dilemma confronting the hero. Charlotte is a fine protagonist especially as a hostage in the great war between two powerful supernatural creatures whose rivalry makes the species seem genuine which leads to a fine time for fans.

This book is a little bit of Downtown Abbey meets vampires to me, and I wish I'd found the series sooner. The review on the cover--"Throbs with lush romanticism"--does not lie. Warrington creates memorable characters and a unique mythology for her vampires, which I'm looking forward to learning more about in the following books. Her writing flows and her storytelling kept me coming back for more. If you love vampires, give this one a go!
