Every time I open one of Cushnie-Mansour’s books, I see something truly special. There are few authors I have read that seem to have that innate talent for folding a story together like that of a master chef plying their craft. Reading the “Night’s Vampire Series” is an exhilarating experience! Life is full of real emotions and I found myself comparing the characters in this book with my own life. Samara is very much a “daddy’s girl.” Santan is wise and mature, yet defies his father’s wishes. The dynamics within Basarab and Randy’s families are interesting. Randy, although devoted to his human family, still holds lingering feelings for the life he might have had with Virginia, if it were not for Basarab. Thank you for the opportunity to delve into your fantastic mind and watch as a fairy tale of darkness and beauty unfolded on the pages!
By leaps and bounds, Cushnie-Mansour has woven complexity into the original story. This will continue to engage the classic vampirists, as well as the new wave enthusiasts. Way to bring in more historical aspects and spice things up! (Wonderful to have our local flavour and locales.) … Brenda Ann Wright, Writer

Having finished reading “Night’s Temptress,” I can’t wait to read the next part. The language is lucid and flowing, and gives the reader ample room for imagination. The story has its own identity and can be read in itself, without being overshadowed by the “Night’s Vampire Trilogy.” Every character, their strengths and vulnerabilities, can be identified within our day to day lives, and this is what makes this story so alive and interesting. The description of the Scottish landscape further adds to the mystery. The best is the conclusion, which leaves the reader gasping for more––will Ákos survive to identify the one who tried to kill him? Wow! I yearn for more. “Night’s Temptress” was a great read, and it propels me further to read your other books. Please finish the story line, so your readers can reach a conclusion. (p.s. I would like to invite you to India, where you will find riots of material and plot for your work.) … Sunanda Ray
There will be vast appeal to readers who love Gothic subculture. There is infusion of enough Vampiric scenes to wholly satisfy. I loved that the author harkened back to the first three volumes, the “Night’s Vampire Trilogy,” and honed in on her original voice, continuing Count Basarab Musat’s family saga. It was a pleasure to read “Night’s Temptress.” … Brenda Wright

Maryanne Christoff – Five Stars – I have to say right from the beginning of the first book, “Night’s Gift,” I was in hook, line and sinker. Mary makes it so you can picture every character and room so clearly that you actually feel like you are in the room with them yelling, crying, and falling in love with the characters. What would you do if you were in Virginia’s place; you really need to read this series and let Mary take you on this scary but awesome adventure.
