I had read many bad reviews of Blood Canticle, but being a huge Ann Rice fan decided to buy the paperback as I thought it surely couldn't be as bad as that!
How wrong I was! This book is basically unreadable. The returning characters are behaving in un-character like ways, the plot (if there is one) is turgid and the style of writing just annoyed me. For lovers of the Vampire Chronicles, to hear Lestat say phrases like 'Yo!' and 'Cool!' just sends shivers down the spine.
This book has the feel that it has been ghost written as all of Ann Rice's usual magic is missing.
