Tanya Huff may have left Nova Scotia at three, and has lived most of her life since in Ontario, but she still considers herself a Maritimer. On the way to the idyllic rural existence she shares with her partner Fiona Patton, six cats, and a chihuahua, she acquired a degree in Radio and Television Arts from Ryerson Polytechnic--an education she was happy to finally use while writing her recent Smoke novels. Of her previous twenty-three books, the five--Blood Price, Blood Trail, Blood Lines, Blood Pact, Blood Debt--featuring Henry Fitzroy, bastard son of Henry VIII, romance writer, and vampire are among the most popular.
Praise for the series:
"An interesting departure from the many vampire books now available. It provides an entertaining and engrossing story for leisure reading."--Kliatt
"A suspenseful story that deals with the emotional content of the situation rather than the obvious potential for overt horror."--Science Fiction Chronicle
"Huff has retained her humor along with her horror, her characters have continued to develop, and her plots are quirky and original."--VOYA
"Explores the borders of death and beyond with an intensity that is only partially lightened by touches of ironic humor. Written with the author's usual flair for realistic fantasy." --Library Journal
