Read full description of the books:
Since I absolutely loved The Night Inside, of course I had to read the sequel, Blood And Chrysanthemums. Unfortunately, this book isn’t half as good as the first. Yes the intriguing characters are still there, but they’re given little to do. There’s no action or suspense, just a lot of pondering about what it’s like to be a vampire and vampire philosophy. It’s kind of slow.
In The Night Inside, Ardeth went through a pretty complex character arc, changing into a different creature with a totally different perception of the world. That doesn't happen in B&C. Also there is no villain, so there’s no real sense of danger and dread that did exist in the first book. The sexual tension between Ardeth and Dimitri is sort of gone.
In fact, the most compelling part of the story is a diary of a very old Japanese vampire. Yet I felt like even that part was kind of thin. Fujiwara’s story wasn’t given the richness it deserved.
I think Nancy Baker writes really well, so I will still give a good review. Baker has a way of pulling me right into her world and her characters are nuanced and believable. Her simple prose shows so much with just one sentence. I admire that. And even with little happening, I was still compelled to whip right through this book.
I just don’t think B&C is anywhere near as awesome as her first book. I’m disappointed.
