My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is one of the most interesting books I've ever read. This book starts out with a graphic depiction of the death of Judas. It's his blood that allows for the Collectors to come for many years afterward.
Gina is a young girl who can't understand why her mom cuts her all the time. I thought Nikki was a little neurotic myself and she's not the kind of mom I would want!!
What made this book so interesting is that it's a "Christian vampire" novel. Seems a little oxymoronic! Eric Wilson does a great job of depicting the scenes between Romania and the United States. I loved the rich history described in the book.
These are not your "normal" vampires. I love their method of feeding! It's a bit unique, but not one that I would want to be subject to!
One of my hangups with this book is that I think I got a little to caught up in the symbolism. I am also not a fan of books or movies that switch back and forth from present day to the future, back to the past, and so on. I have a hard time keeping it all straight!!
Character-wise, I HATED Nikki...she's purely evil. I had hoped she'd get her pay back before the book was over. My favorite character is Cal. He's just so mysterious and I hope to see him again in Haunt of the Jackals.
I would give this book an overall 4.5 stars. I will be starting the sequel as soon as I whittle down a few other books for tours this month.
