Skyler White’s “and Falling, Fly” Review

Vampires and angels may seem like an unlikely pairing, but in the Skyler White’s new novel, and Falling, Fly, it’s nothing less than brilliant perfection.

“Olivia is a vampire bored with modernity. Tattooist, boyfriend, black-metal singer: everyone you don’t love tastes the same. Since the fall from Eden, she has hungered for love, but fed only on desire. Dominic O’Shaughnessy is a neuroscientist plagued by impossible visions.

“When his research and her despair collide in Ireland’s L’Otel Mathillide – a subterranean hell of beauty, demons and dreams – rationalist and angel unite in a clash of desire and damnation that threatens to destroy them both.”

Skyler White twists a tale so riveting and fascinating you can’t help but get lost in the world of the damned. An intellectual and unique book, this is something no vampire fan has ever read before. It’s one of those rare books where you have to drink down every word, sip them slowly and taste each bloody drop. You have to stop and ponder every sentence on love, desire and damnation. White has most definitely created a brilliant work of art with this novel.

And I’m not the only one that loves it, check out some of the amazing reviews and Falling, Fly has received:

“Intriguing from page one, Skyler White’s novel, and Falling, Fly, had me hooked, devouring every page to see what would happen next. White asks hard questions about desire, damnation, love and sacrifice in a beautiful, poetic way that will keep you utterly spellbound. The book presents a challenging abrasion between rationality and myth that will stick with you long after you finish the last page. With this first novel, White has made my Must Buy list. I eagerly await her next book.” – Anya Bast

“White’s debut is a trippy urban fantasy, an esoteric battle between myth and science told in floods of evocative prose … paranormal fans will appreciate White’s willingness to take chances and try something new.” – Publishers Weekly
