review and tour: dark stranger by susan sizemore

Dark Stranger begins with Zoe, the Porphyrgia from Terra, being captured (along with many others) by the Hajim. It's important no one discover Zoe's royal status, but of course someone does. Lucky for her, it's a man she can trust. Doc Raven is a prisoner in the camp Zoe's taken to, but also serves as camp doctor. And he just so happens to be a vampire, which briefly horrifies Zoe; however, she quickly gives into her desire. Zoe and Doc still face one big problem--the Hajim are after the princess even if they don't know her true identity. They will have to escape their captors in order to be together.

The concept of Dark Stranger intrigued me. This is a book that the characters in Susan Sizemore's Prime series are reading for their book club. Although I haven't read the Prime series, I was disappointed that the Vampire Book Club wasn't brought in until the end. I wish their reactions had been interspersed with the Dark Stranger plot.

It's possible I would've enjoyed Dark Stranger more if I'd read the Prime series. It's likely that all the different planets and tensions between the various groups are addressed there which would've given me a better understanding.
