Read from April 29 to August 11, 2012

Not up to par with the first 3 novels, not even close. Too much rumenating on details that don't mean anything. The story of Merrick as a young woman has very little to do with Merrick in the present; didn't need that whole backstory just to say Merrick is a voodoo witch. And I'm still not sure why Honey in the Sunshine hated Merrick THAT much; to me, there really wasn't a plausable resolution concering that story thread. Also, I don't find David to be a very fascinating character anymore. He was when he was human, but now he's just an attractive and strong vamp like everyone else, and where his qualities made him stand out as a human, now he is just a shadow of Lestat; not a good thing.
