Gorgeous, unsettling, and riveting to the end.

The true monster in this story is less the concept of undead blood-drinkers than it is the machinations of a controlling, dysfunctional family, ancient and set in their ways. It's an uncomfortable read at points, but also serves as a fascinating example of the horrific and creative vampires you got before the big romance book.

This is the first thing I've ever read by Tanith Lee, and wont be the last.

Loved it! Doesn't get much sexier or darker or weirder than this book. Tanith Lee was the mistress of dark fantasy and I miss her terribly.

Love this author. She is one of my favorite authors. This is one of my favorite series from her. I wish there was more.

I loved the premise of "real" vampires and the suspense of the plot. Can't wait to read the next 2 in the series. Love this author!

Chilling twist to an ancient mythology, told in a style befitting the story. Highly recommended for lovers of the genre.

This book has some serious structural flaws, but I can't bring myself to give it any less than 5 stars because it's long haunted me. There is something about the prose that sinks itself into your brain like vampire teeth. It's unhurried, and slow-moving, but that languid pace mesmerized me. I still remember, years later, details that were unremarkable but nevertheless impactful... especially the scenes of Rachaela living in megalopolitan isolation. I'm so happy to see Storm Constantine has re-released this gem with a new, beautiful cover, and it's finally available in eBook format. Don't read this if you want something fast-paced. (If you want an expeditious Lee novel, try "Cyrion," "The Silver Metal Lover," "Don't Bite The Sun," or "Electric Forest.") This is one of Lee's more dark, meditative and uncomfortable works of art.

Yes, the heroine of the tale, Rachaela, is depressing and sulky, but for some reason I really, really like her; her personality is so clear, complex, somehow REAL. A unique protagonist with an odd charm, a clear vision, a quick mind. Very different.
This book, like all of Ms. Lee's stuff, is completely outside the norm. Her stories seem to follow a predictable plot, but somehow Lee's writing makes the whole story veer off its tracks. Lee's novels always seem to be isolated and lonely, distant, almost cold. And yet, despite all this, her characters are strange and engaging, and you actually care about them.
To anyone who likes it a little different, who enjoys an original prose style, who likes the characters different and compelling and unusual, I recommend this book. IF you can find it. This book, Dark Dance, is all but impossible to find anywhere. *sigh*
Lee's writing style is, as ever, truly excellent. Her plots take off into their own forests along their own dark paths, the characters are truly different and arresting. Altogether, a fabulous book. Tanith Lee, you're a wonder.
I read this book a few years ago, and I felt it tapped straight into my dreams. I actually read the sequel first (my local library always buys books in the wrong order) and I loved it. a lot of people have been cruel about Personal Darkness, but I found myself addicted. I read Dark Dance about a month later and found it just as delicious... Tanith Lee is a modern genius. Even in these stories, set in contemporary London, she weaves a subtle web of symbolism and Magick. She highlights the wyrd goings on behind the mask of normality in modern culture, making the stories a lot more sinister than if they were set in a different time or different world. Tanith, your work is beautiful and inspiring. Give us more.
