If I'd seen this book in a store, I'd have walked right past it. Thankfully I saw it on Amazon where there were a lot of great reviews.
I like the way she got through the length of time this book takes place over without ever having sex. Oh sure, there's flirting and a bit more, and I bucked up and dealt with it, but no sex! Maybe one day I'll find a novel about a kickass female character who can get through whatever it is she's doing without sexual tension. Now that would be a dream come true!
The is the first vampire book I've read, which really even attempts to bring the genre into the 21st century. Once "out of the closet," OF COURSE they and their blood-slaves would have to deal with modern technology, legalities and law enforcement; and likewise, the government would have to sit up and take notice, and try to make laws (and profit?) from this startling new/old development. This author touches on those issues.
I haven't enjoyed a series start this much, since the first "Dresden Files" book (see Jim Butcher's Chicago wizard series). Even the setting, New Orleans, was magical to me; it took me back to Anne Rice's "Interview With the Vampire" -- it was THAT convincing. I couldn't put it down. I'm about to move on to the second book -- hoping the story continues in this vein (you should forgive the expression), and at this elevated level.
Later postscript: I've now read through to the recently released book 8, "Broken Soul." I sincerely recommend ALL of these books; the whole series. I'm only sorry that the author isn't able to write them as fast as I can read them.
Thank you, Faith Hunter! I'm so glad to have "discovered" you.
later in the book you learn that she also has the ability to change into other animals, though it can be very hard for her, or difficult to change back i should say.
I enjoyed this book. It was fast moving and as soon as you think you can see the direction the Author changes it up for you.
Finding it hard to put down, I can say I can't wait to see what is ahead in the next book in this series.
