Vampires . . . they ache, they love, they thirst for the forbidden. They are your friends and lovers, and your worst fears. "A major new voice in horror fiction . . . an electric style and no shortage of nerve."--Booklist At a club in Missing Mile, N.C., the children of the night gather, dressed in black, look for acceptance. Among them are Ghost, who sees what others do ¬ Ann, longing for love; and Jason, whose real name is Nothing, newly awakened to an ancient, deathless truth about his father, and himself. Others are coming to Missing Mile tonight. Three beautiful, hip vagabonds--Molochai, Twig, and the seductive Zillah, whose eyes are as green as limes--are on their own lost journey, slaking their ancient thirst for blood, looking for supple young flesh. They find it in Nothing and Ann, leading them on a mad, illicit road trip south to New Orleans. Over miles of dark highway, Ghost pursues, his powers guiding him on a journey to reach his destiny, to save Ann from her new companions, to save Nothing from himself. . . .  "An important and original work . . . a gritty, highly literate blend of brutality and sentiment, hope and despair."--Science Fiction Chronicle… (mais)

It has been a long time since I read this novel, but I recall being quite amazed by the absorbing moodiness, evocative prose, and compelling themes. My impression of Brite's writing is that she is everything that Anne Rice fans think of Rice -- but where Rice falls short of the legend, Brite exceeds all expectations.

Some of Brite's preoccupations in her writing (which somewhat mirror Rice's, but Brite is less coy about it) get to be a bit much for my tastes after a couple of books (it began to feel like reading the same book), and as such I stopped reading her works some years ago, but there's no denying that as an author she has an impressive talent and formidable skill in her craft.

You might notice this review is almost identical to my review of Drawing Blood. Yeah, I know. I read them both at the same time, and my memory of each has faded about the same amount. ( )

I picked this up because I was looking for more horror written by female authors. For a book written by a woman, the women in this book were treated very badly. There were only a couple of female characters and they were just throw away characters, fulfilling the sexual needs of the males.

So the book was ok. I could see how this could appeal to readers that are into the punk or goth scene. I am not the intended audience, so all I could think about is how dirty and disgusting everyone must be, since they didn't wash their clothes or their bodies very much if at all.

I thought this was very originally made and I loved the brutally dirty and sex crazed these characters were. They all played so well with each other and it was such a great glow from beginning to end. ( )

I gave it a bland overall rating because the book was, overall, a letdown. I got the idea to read it on a horror novel kick that led me to Horror Writers Association's Horror Reading List. Brite's [b:Lost Souls|126507|Lost Light (Harry Bosch, #9)|Michael Connelly|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1171916781s/126507.jpg|1805500] was on said list, and one of the newer titles to make the grade (quite a few books on the list are old and out of print). So I picked it up.

The cover looks quite scary and vampires, when done right, can make for terrifying reading. So I had high hopes for a good, scary horror novel. But for 300 of 355 pages, it was nothing more than your typical, growing-up, coming-of-age novel. Only this time, the boy becoming a man was a vampire boy. A vampire boy who doesn't know he's a vampire, who flees his adoptive parents and goes on a trek to find himself, his family, and his past. Boring.

Until the last 50 pages, when events culminate with all the major characters arriving in New Orleans and vampires do their vampire thing. Then there's danger and drama and stuff happening that is GOOD. But by that point, it's too little too late. ( )
