Review:

Are vampires played out as subjects for fiction? The misfortune of this deft, appealing little novel is that this may be an inopportune time for another tale of rock stars, slackers, and vampires in a wealthy-but-seedy California setting. If you can get past that problem, though, you'll find much to admire in Stainless: spare, lyrical prose; a refusal to glamorize empty lifestyles; a vampire-human love relationship that reaches for, but never achieves, real connection. Douglas Winter, in the Washington Post, calls this "an intriguing alternative to the usual suspects of the vampire set."

From the Publisher:

You were a rock musician until they broke your hands. You had a girlfriend until they broke her, too. Then you met Justine. Justine kills now and then. It's an imperative. You can understand. Other times she's lonely.

Even though she's older than the angels, she looks younger than your twenty-eight. She cannot remember very much of her past, and perhaps this gives her a certain quality of innocence -- despite all she has done.

She keeps you but not as a slave. More of a habit, like heroin. Warm to her cold. Neither dead nor living, just like her. You're her accomplice, her jones, her imp. Her familiar.

You're good for each other. Isn't that what counts?
