I had a hard getting into the book at the begining. The reason is because the prologue really doesn't do much for the story, at least in my opinion. However, after reading the next few chapters; I was hooked on the the book. Some things weren't explained, but overall it was a great read. I would reccomend Vampire Kisses to anyone who likes paranormal romance. I found the use of mythology to be great, and a useful way to get people to learn things without doing boring research. Great writing, and amazing location detailsmake you feel like you're actually there.
