"For Henry Fitzroy, 450-year-old vampire, it began with a haunting, inescapable image of the sun, a terrifying symbol of death to one such as he." Blood Lines - DAW Books
So not as great as I thought it would have been. Yes, there was an ancient mummy loose in the city. Mike and Henry band together to fight it off. Vicki get's drugged and kidnapped. Henry faces his one largest fear. It had so much potential to be great. But it was a little slow paced and I got really bored during the middle of it. There just wasn't enough chemistry between Henry and Vicki as they eluded.
It was very inconsistent with Mike's love life. Mike finally finds a girl who he might like and asks her out to dinner in the first few chapters but then she wasn't mentioned again till the end of the book where it was just him asking her about rituals…what happened to them?
This book just didn't live to the last book. It just didn't have the pace, suspense, or same feel that the other books prior had.
