First, I'd like to say that there isn't really anything negative to say about the quality of the book, writing and imagination. It's a very well-written book.
The problem that I have with this book is that it's a big gorey mess of malice and misery. I don't think I've seen a single positive thing in the whole book. Rape, murder, manipulation, torture, control and humiliation, and children mixed into all of that. I'm sure there are people to whom it would appeal. I'm not one of them. In the end I had to force myself to finish this book just so that I would see its horrors be over and it wouldn't haunt me. I also felt like I needed to wash my brain with gentle soap and warm water afterwards.

... It also occurred to me that a lot of people could be mislead by the title in combination with 'vampire novel' and buy this thinking it would be another half-silly paranormal romance... they're in for a nasty surprise.
