I was slowly working my way through Tanya Huff's Blood Price, and wondering if the reason I wasn't reading much this year was that I was trying to finish it, when I misplaced the book.

In the middle of the climax.

I can't really bring myself to care.

So yup, Blood Price is pretty darned boring. It's predictable, and I object to the stereotyped characterization of the nerdy murderer, and I dislike the overly-symbolic-but-not-otherwise-real night blindness of the heroine, and I hate deadly dull flashbacks which stop the story so we can learn more about the ancient vampire. Oh, and the vampire writes romance novels, but that seemed overly symbolic and not very real, too.

I have liked other Tanya Huff books, but I'd say stay away from this one unless you really have a thing for cardboard vampires.

Yeah.

Two women are being held at gunpoint by a nerdy misfit who summons demons. I'm sure they'll be fine.

It's so nice to see someone else doesn't think much of the Blood Whatever books.

PS. As I remember, the two women did come out of the climax fine.
