First off let me say this work has absolutely nothing in common with Anne Rice's work! I read all of Anne Rice's vampire chronicals and a couple of extras, like Pandora and Blood and Gold, before I even heard of Sonja Blue and let me tell you, after you read Midnight Blue you will never want to pick up another Vampire novel! This book has no Vampire love, and especially no homo-erotic tones ala Anne Rice. Sonja Blue is the coolest character ever created, hands down. Everyone should read this set of books if you are into horror, Vampires, and aren't easily offended. These books are Gory, explicit, and cool as hell. The only problem I have with this series is that there are only three books. After you read this you will hope for more but, sadly, there isnt. I Give this book 2 thumbs up, 5 Gold Stars, etc.... Pick this one up!
