“I wanted to dip into the vampire genre, and a friend had long ago recommended this author. I thought the writing itself was a little cheesy, but also thought, hey, this is the first in the series, I can let it go... Still, it never vaulted to a great read for me. I did find myself, however, wondering "whodunit" between readings. I'm not a huge fan of mysteries, but this was a fun, quick read. I'm not sure I'll pick up the others in the series. From what I read on wikipedia, the plot becomes more and more fantastical, with a heavy dose of the author's own mythology thrown in. Anyone finds this not to be true, drop me a line.”
