REVIEW: I'd like to thank the author and Promotional Book Tours for allowing me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Overall, I found the book to be a bit hard to read. It took me awhile to realize there were rather large jumps in time between the chapters. I wish that had been better elucidated...just a quick date at the beginning of each chapter would have been fine for me. It also would have helped place some of the people, places and things in the chapters a little better.
I don't think the whole concept of the Unborn was very well explained in it, although, maybe I was still trying to figure out "when" I was historically in the book, that I missed the explanation entirely. Towards the end of the book, I was just starting to get the idea, and that's way too long for me.
Nicholas was an intriguing character, just when you think you have him pegged, he does something completely out of character. Some situations truly threw me for a loop when I was reading them, but at some point, I could see the whole mythology of Nicholas coming together. Antonio was just plain boring. He was only truly needed for the plot to move. He was like Lestat's interviewer, in Interview with the Vampire. Necessary for plot movement, but absolutely two-dimensional.
However, don't get me wrong. The book was an enjoyable read. It was extremely well-written, and the author was incredibly descriptive. The plot moved along at a nice pace, it never really lagged. I would definitely read it again at some point, now that I know what's going on.
