From Last Call to On Stranger Tides to Declare to Three Days to Never, any book by the inimitable Tim Powers is a wonder. With Hide Me Among the Graves, it’s possible that the uniquely ingenious Powers has surpassed even himself. A breathtaking historical thriller in which art and the supernatural collide, Hide Me Among the Graves transports readers back to mid-19th century London and features a reformed ex-prostitute, a veterinarian, and the vampire ghost of Lord Byron’s onetime physician, uncle to poet Christina Rossetti and her brother, the painter Dante Gabriel Rossetti. A novel that, like all his others, is virtually impossible to pidgeonhole—or to resist—Hide Me Among the Graves is the taut, gripping, and utterly remarkable literary thrill ride that Tim Powers fans have been eagerly waiting for.

Christina & Dante Gabriel Rossetti & John Polidori--what's not to like? However, I found some of the world-building to be a little loose & sloppy. The writing style was a little too plain, too.

Very well written and inventive.

I did not like it, not one bit. I finished the whole thing, and wish I hadn't bothered. I recognize the writing is good, and it had a lot of plot, but I could not care about any of the characters, I found it too weird ( I don't read "horror", maybe I just don't like the type of book?), and rambling. Very disappointed.

Not a sequel but more a successor to Powers' phenomenal The Stress of Her Regard. I believe him to be one of the most talented writers out there right now. He makes the mystical and mythological calmly believable. I highly recommend this novel. Don't miss it.
