Questions

  1. Is this more a "detective" novel or "vampire" novel?
  2. How does this compare to other "avmpire genre" works (Anne Rice, Vampire: The Masquerade, etc)? What is unique or special about this vampire compared to others you've encountered?
  3. Did you find the heroine's relationship with her old boyfriend attarctive/appealing? Is Henry easily smitten with Vicki because she is strong like a man? Which does Henry like better?
  4. The GLBT content in the story is very peripheral though increases in later volumes. Did it feel like the author was "testing the water" or merely setting the stage?
  5. What were the demons trying to accomplish and is their place in the mythos of the universe clear?
  6. What does Vicki's medical problem bring to the story? Does it make a difference?
  7. Can vampires actually have sex in this universe, or is blood drinking a substitute?
  8. Is Vicki a likable person? If not, what attraction does she hold for the male characters?
