Blood Lines



Blood Lines, by Tanya Huff

This is number three in the Blood Book series by Tanya Huff.

Well, I managed to get this one to last about three days which is progress of a sort! I'm just glad these are all very re-readable or else I'd be very very sad, instead of just normal sad.

The Big Bad in this one is a mummy, sort of. And no that's not a spoiler, it's on the back cover of the book.

There's a lot of Henry's emotional insecurities and fears in this one which hadn't really been in the first two very much. He's not quite the invulnerable vampire he'd like everyone to believe. There's also more religion stuff in this one which I think is really interesting. There's a kind of struggle between ancient Egyptian gods and Henry and his belief in the One True God.

I know I talked about it before with the first book, but I find the author's treatment of religion incredibly refreshing. I'm such a sci-fi junky that most of what I read completely dismisses my own religious beliefs and while I have no idea what the author's personal beliefs are, she treats them with respect and I really appreciate that. It's such a rare thing to find.
