I was very disappointed by this novel. Having read reviews that suggested Anne Rice told a "really mean ghost story", I was looking forward to just that. This turned out to be stock writing, stock plotting, stock characters, and just about every stereotype of New Orleans you can think of. If Anne Rice is the favorite daughter of New Orleans, it must be because there are no other daughters.
Now, in this story, she sets up a very good situation, that could have really been a great story. But the ending was nothing like the beginning, and was very corny, indeed. A great saga turned into a messy misshapen thing that should have been abandoned.
