Everyone has become flat and cardboard. This adds nothing to the vampire canon! I’ve read two books since I finished Blood Canticle, and I still find myself thinking about how disappointed I am by this book.

Vampires are so popular these days, with Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel on TV, and plenty of vampire books in the stores: It truly just happened.
The writing was excruciating, the story ridiculous. This made me want to flee into the arms of Anne’s earlier work, fold myself into the lush, lyrical writing of novels past, and dismiss this book and the one preceding it as cruel jokes; as nightmares; as phantoms I’d never need to acknowledge ever again.

As for my doing it, I went with the flow. And they’re all sleeping together! There seemed to be a lot of these short clunky pieces without the velvety smooth signature Anne Rice richness to envelop them.
