The author takes a crack at the vampire lore in his own way. The writing style was impressive, but the way he changes the very essence of Vampire does not work for me 100 %. The reason why I chose to write about this is because I read the book a second time, and as much as I want to love it, these key points are not sitting with me all that well.
a. vampires have magic
b. they do have a soul
c. they come from another world, or at least their powers do
d. there are more than one type of vampire, traditional and the kind in Whispers
e. a demon or some crazy creature within like "naruto"
f. vampires cannot fly
powers can combine and posses their own magical attributes, this blew my mind
Id like to get more minds involved on this. Would this be something that takes away from the story, or is this something that you wouldn't mind as much as I do.
