** spoiler alert ** Crap.

I will never understand why Anne Rice, with all her years of writing experience, still has no idea how to drive a plot. This is essentially how this book works, and it holds true for most of her books:

Character #1: Hi, I'm terribly interesting.
Character #2: Wow, you're terribly interesting. Tell me your life story.
Character #1: Okay. Let me tell you about how I met Character #3.

Character #3: Hi, I'm terribly interesting.
Character #1: Wow, you're terribly interesting. Tell me your life story.
Character #3. Okay. Let me tell you how I met Character #4...

These vampires have all these super powers and live for hundreds of years, and I swear all they do is sit around and have terribly interesting chats. I have been suckered by Anne Rice, and by fans of Anne Rice who recommend each book as "really, better than the rest of them," for the last time.

Goodbye, Anne Rice.
