it was ok

I forced myself to finish this book. I really wanted to give up around page 300, but having already wasted invested so much time in it, I stuck it out until the bitter, unsatisfying, demoralizing end.

So why on earth did I give it 2 stars? Because it really was ok.
The geographical and physical descriptions were informative, and the vampire lore was interesting. That having been said, the book would have been *much* better if it had been stabbed down to 350 pages, and given the heroine a backbone instead of a Goth-whine personality.
