I recently picked up a 1st edition of this at a garage sale (have not read it either). I'll likely get to it as the premiere date for the HBO show approaches.

But I'm giving up on it. I just don't care anymore. It's no Dresden Files, it's not even a Nightside. I liked the short story by her in Mean Streets, but this book is not fun for me. The writing style is a little off, the plot is a little jumbled, I skip over the descriptions of the Grey, Harper's characterization is inconsistent, and while I'm not a total purist, I don't really like the portrayal of the vampires. Back to the library with you!

Now to pick from the current On-Deck"
Simon R Green: Shadows Fall
Alan Dean Foster: The Mocking Program
Simon R. Green: Deathstalker
Dante: Inferno
Robert Asprin: Phule's Company
Hermann Hesse: Demian or
Lovecraft: Complete Fiction

Or I could break into the box of 100+ old pulp SF paperbacks by authors I never heard of, I got for 5 bucks from the library book sale last year.

The Tide of Victory by Eric Flint and David Drake. Fifth book in the Belisarius series. Thought the fourth one, Fortune's Stroke, was the best one yet.

[If you are going to post images, it would be nice to also list the title and author since images are very slow to load on dial-up.]
