25 starsAric gets droped of in Serbia by his parents in the mansion of his new tutor who happens to be a vampireMostly the story featured only Aric and Nikola and they were not all that charming and fascinating which made it harder for me to get through the bookWhile not without a merrit this one story was not as engaging as the other books I ve ead this month I got stuck in some places and I eally didn t like one of the character all that much while the other was too aloof and kind of cold Also I disliked all the drama and let s not forget the crying Sometimes I had a hard time to pick up the book again because the dialogs were not flowing they were epetitive and I got bored by the discussion of the same or similar issues Then again years of separation were gone after a few pages A lot was described and not shown which got boring and my attention wandered All in all not my best paranormal pick good thing I wasn t eading this one for the paranormal elements I think I ve OD d on vamp ficseither that or maybe I m just looking for an original approach I adore the Anne Rice books but maybe they ve spoiled me for life Either way Rachmaninoff is no exception it s a good book but it wasn t that original breath of fresh air I d been cravingview spoilerNikola is a 400 year old vampire who lives in a castle like dwelling befitting Count Dracula He has set his sights on Aric a young pianist whose playing inspires something in him Aric is young talented and a ebel his parents are happy to be id of him and dump him on Nikola s doorstep to tutor the young man in the ways of the wealthy elite Aric it turns out is gay and does not hesitate to seek sexual partners to pleasure himself even while he is staying with Nikola But of course predictably Aric starts to develop feelings for Nikola at the same time that the boy is ealizing that his host is not humanOnce together. Editorial ReviewsI love Rachmaninoff and the writing of SL Armstrong and K Piet In the beginning I was unsure if the story would be strong enough to keep me interested but I soon ealized Rachmaninoff has than what it takes I love the slow formation of their elationship and the erotic love they come to share The coming together of these two extremely strong men is so ealistic yet omantic and I would ecommend that you give the words of Rachmaninoff a listen Delane Coffee Time RomanceThe authors have done an excellent job mixing the old world vampire with the modern one eaders have become familiar with Rachman.

Nikola and Aric travel the world and their elationship grows by leaps and bounds Aric grows up at least to some extent but eventually Nikola knows he must let the boy go so that Aric can decide what he wants as in whether he wants to go back to Nikola and whether he wants to emain human or have Nikola turn him The est is pretty predictable hide spoiler Have to admit i only ead a couple of chapters then gave up completely Just cannot STAND the book characters and the way the author writes Really not for me There are a lot of things that irked me in this book details are belowOverall I will say that Rachmaninoff is an indulgent omp of a novel First there s a vampire a la Alucard Long blond hair Check Cape Check Tortured soul Check check check Then there are descriptions of iches nobility decadence and several simmering sex scenes It s an over the top glut and there isn t much plot to speak of until you hit the second half of the book BUT simmering sex scenes Very simmer y The following are some of the issues that proved irritating as I ploughed through it Many of the issues have to do with poor editingSpastic POV changes sometimes mid sentence and a constantly changing narrator 3rd person character narration to 3rd person omniscient etcSome wince worthy descriptions of music and piano playing I can understand that music and the playing of music is difficult to dramatize and put into words but like the est of the book it was done in an over the top way that had me skimming those pages as uickly as possibleExtremely odd jumps in plot Example No sentences at all literally are devoted to Aric s suspicions about Nikola s vampirism or how Aric convinced himself that Nikola was a vampire Instead what we get is a sudden Did you ever drink his blood confrontation for the flimsiest of easons woah what It jarred me each time it happened sadly it happened than on.
