really liked it
bookshelves: horror

Please ignore the cheesy title and crappy back cover descriptions. This is less a horror novel than a love/adventure story — in fact, I would say that the "horror" elements are the weakest part of the story (thank goodness they're only really heavy in one chapter towards the end). Brite's lush descriptive prose is enticing (an outdoor market in New Orleans is bursting with such fantastic color and scent it makes the mouth water) and she's created some fantastic characters, most notably in Trevor. I infinitely prefer Drawing Blood to Brite's first novel set in the same universe, Lost Souls, though I would say Lost Souls is worth a read if you're bored and like Anne Rice.
