This feels like one of Chambers' weakest works. It seems like an attempt to spoof the whole vampire romance idea, but falls just short. While it is a good deal more loyal to the idea of vampires than say Meyer's Twilight series, it still feels too forced with the idea of the sympathetic monster.
If you're a fan, read it just to read it, but don't expect much.
This is quite possibly my favorite of this author's novels. While once again delving into the subject of the supernatural, the idea of spirits has proven to be Chambers' strong suit. It's a fresh take on the legends of Arthur in a way that I had not expected it to be.
The characters are more developed, and the plot is, while still low fantasy, a step above some of the works written for the age group that this novel was written for.
A definite delight.
