Summary :

What if you could live for centuries, and the only price was your soul..?

Agyar is a man who has paid this price. Born over a century ago, and once a frivolous young man in search of pleasure, he found instead immortality in a woman's blood-red lips.

Now he roams from woman to woman, from decade to decade, and from land to land. Death does not bind him. Only one thing does -- and that is a bind he has vowed to break. It has brought him to modern day Ohio and an abandoned house in a quiet college town. Here he plays his familiar role: the handsome drifter, the sharp-tongued and heartless Lothario. But in this town are two women, one young and one as ageless as he. And one of these two women will cost him much more than his blackened soul.

Blurbs:
  • "Delightful, exciting and sometimes brilliant, Steven Brust is the latest in a line of great Hungarian writers, which (I have no doubts) includes Alexandre Dumas, C.S. Forester, Mark Twain, and the author of the juiciest bits of the Old Testament." Neil Gaiman
  • "Stop. Pay attention. Steven Brust might just be America's best fantasy writer. So what are you waiting for?" Tad Williams
  • "There's at least one point in any Steven Brust novel when the story turns the lights on in your head, when you realize, not what's important to the characters, but what's important to you. That's one of the reasons why I'll read anything Brust writes." Emma Bull
  • "Steven Brust is one of my very favorite storytellers. I can always count on him for a tale full of charm and full of heart." Jane Yolen
  • "Watch Steven Brust. He moves fast. He surprises you." Roger Zelazny
  • "When I pick up one of Brust's books, I am never sure where I am going, but I am always glad to be along for the trip." Megan Lindholm
  • "Compact, understated, and highly persuasive. [In AGYAR,] Brust accomplishes with a wry turn of phrase or a small flourish what others never achieve despite hundreds of gory spatters." Kirkus Reviews
