    Three stylish vampires arrive in New Orleans just in time for Mardis Gras, and then disappear again. While in the city, the group's leader, Zillah, meets and impregnates an adolescent girl. Fifteen years later, the child of that pairing, a boy who calls himself simply "Nothing" is living with adoptive parents in the suburbs, where he – like so many other teens – feels isolated and out of place. The answer is, his father is a vampire, leaving Nothing hovering precariously between worlds.

    What disappointed you about Lost Souls?

    This was a fun idea but I can't say I liked the book. Just too...well..much. I love me a good vampire book and am not adverse to a bit of drippy dialogue when the need arises but this was above and beyond the call of purple prose. The reader wasn't very good either. I felt like Keanu Reeves was reading it in his Bill and Ted guise. The readers style didn't mesh with the ambiance (dripping as it was).
