Read from September 06 to 11, 2011

I REALLY enjoyed this story... 4.5 stars.

I see now how the chapters play off of each other, with each chapter switching between the history of Mors, and the modern plot line.

The writing is fluid and beautiful. I like that there are fantasy elements, yet doesn't feel like a 'typical' paranormal knockoff of something popular.

I should also clarify what I mentioned in a status update. A friend thought I was insulting this book by saying it was slightly less caliber than Anne Rice.

I never meant it as an insult..NOT at ALL. Anne Rice is somewhat the Queen of the vampire novels, so all others will no doubt be compared to her books.

I meant that The Millennial books are faster, funner and less prose-y. I don't really read books through the 'language' doorway, but more so because the characters are well written. And in my opinion, Ms. Stratford builds characters you can believe and love.

I can't WAIT for the next one!!! (Write faster, please!!)
