Read from February 10 to 14, 2012

I wasn't too sure about this when I bought it, but the premise seemed too good to ignore. Boy was it worth it. It's kind of slow to start but after the first 70 pages or so I couldn't put it down.

There are no sparkly vampires here. No tortured heroes needing the love of a good woman to save them. These vamps are cruel and callous and beautiful in their sinister behavior. Lenore is food and nothing else to Rich and Paul, yet she still manages to outsmart them to her advantage in several places. Even though there's only one possible conclusion for Lenore I couldn't help but root for her. She's full of inconsistencies which makes her extremely real and relatable. During her captivity she grows on Rich and Paul but never changes who and what they are.

Is it twisted I finished this bizarre tale on Valentine's Day? Maybe a little. ;)
