From School Library Journal
YA-- Three bizarre, spellbinding novellas comprise the first volume of this series. "Stained with Crimson" is an erotic, horror-filled vampire tale. In "Malice in Saffron," a young girl exacts vengeance against men as a result of being brutally raped, but then tells of her eventual redemption and horrible self-sacrifice. "Empires of Azure" is a grim tale of death and sorcery. The unifying element is the setting: the magical French city of Paradys during the medieval era. Lee's superb imagination and her creative use of language to convey mood has generated three fantastic tales, but they are definitely not for the faint-hearted.

From Library Journal
United by their setting in the ethereal, lost city of Paradys, three stories of classic horror open windows onto a world of shadowy and elusive creatures of the netherworlds. Lee's seductive prose and sensitivity to nuance restore the "atmosphere" to a genre too easily overwhelmed by gore. First published in Britain, this title belongs in most fantasy collections.
