    One thought on “Mansions of Darkness”

    1. Saint Germain, who mourns his own lost and forgotten people, travels to South America in the 17th century looking for a glimpse of the native culture before it is erased by the conquering Spanish and the Catholic church. He repeatedly flees religious fanatics and other bad guys, and he's terribly unlucky in love. Overall this is a very sad book. A good entertaining read, although there is nothing spectacular here.

    2. Loved it! had a hard time putting it down. The way she weaves the story with historical and geographical facts is amazing.

    3. ahhhh so sad the most depressing of the Saint-Germain stories this time he goes by Francisco San Germanno this time he and Rogerio go to Peru, Saint-Germain wants to study the ways of the Inca before they disappeard he tries love twice - is rejected twice - once by the last of the Incan royalty, Acanna Tupac, 40ish, the last of her kin and though she shares love with San Germanno, once he tells her she is of his blood (he has been with her too many times), she sacrifices herself in Incan high dr [...]

    4. For some reason, the Count's adventures as seem better outside of Europe. Here, Yarbro paints a picture of Peru during the time of Conquest.

    5. St. Germain is a great character but I found the book a little hard to get into at times. Maybe I should start with the first in the series.
