The dead infant theme was poignant but gratuitous. I don't need that in my 'fun' reading.
It was fine.
Well, not really. I'm not terribly committed to any of the characters, except maybe the cop.
If the guy designated as the disappointed love interest had been the hero, and the hero had turned out to be a clod - in other words, a twist.
The narrator was not the issue.
As I said, I would swap the male characters. There is nothing hotter than a straight, unmarried dressage trainer.
I am a big vampire-fiction fan. However, when Osama Bin Laden turned up and then turned into a demon, the author sacrificed my commitment to the narrative irretrievably. Genuine, serious, bad, scary things do not, in my opinion, belong in vampire fiction. Osama Bin Laden is bad enough as he really is. Moreover, the book had a certain pro-right-wing, militaristic flavor, which bothered me. A vampire spy novel isn't a bad idea. But the demon/villain should have been someone within the United States, like a particularly sanctimonious member of congress, or a mealy-mouthed C.E.O.
