Read in May, 2011

I read the first 80 pages of this book then gave up. The vampires in this story are often very evil, so there's a significant vein of horror in the book that doesn't appeal to me. The set-up is just depressing - a medical resident is turned into a vampire by accidentally ingesting vampire blood during an attack, and discovers that if she doesn't join the society for the voluntary extinction of vampires, they will put her down like a rabid dog. I don't see any light at the end of this tunnel, and I prefer happy endings, not the dread I feel reading this one. I've got too many books on my to-read shelve to bother with one like this.
