I thought that this book was really smart, scary and at times sexy. I liked how he brought Romainian history and there troubled future and really make it stick, connect together. I liked how he used an ordinary doctor doing her job and end up having to do extrodanary things to get her son back. I loved the book.

This book was just great. Everything about it was great, the theory of vampires was just astounding and I am glad that I decided to read it.

I almost didn't read this book because I had trouble getting into it. It was only on my fourth and final try that I managed to read past the first few pages. I am glad that I persevered because it turned out to be a very good story. From a Romania suffering from the aftermath of revolution to America and back again, Simmons treats us to an interesting and frightening take on the Dracula legend. Set in the late eighties/early nineties, this modern vampire story retains some of the creepiness and foreboding of Bram Stoker's tale while acquiring an urgency that seems all too real. The first chapter of this book is dry and difficult to read but it is worth persisting because Simmons weaves a truly terrifying tale that will have you sleeping with the light on.

Kind of silly and predictable.

I absolutely loved this book! I found this book in a used book sale, while I was actually looking for Stephen King books, and boy was I glad I found this one! I couldn't put it down! Once it got going you couldn't wait to see what was going to happen next! I was actually disappointed when the book ended!!

I thought that it was an emotional ride. Through the begining, middle and end, there are things going on to keep you hooked and wanting more. But at the end, I thought it might have been a little 'rushed' (It didn't have as much detail as the rest of the story) And the helicopter thing seemed maybe a little out of place. I don't know. All I know is that I love the book and reading it again for the second time. I normally don't do that for any other book, but this was soooo good.

CHILDREN OF THE NIGHT by Dan Simmons is a well-researched history of Romania and the vampire legend in the Romanian perspective from about the 15th Century to post-Ceaucescu years. Former schoolteacher Simmons weaves history and legend with the hopelessness, particularly for Gypsy children, orphaned in their country. A must read for devotees of history and horror as well as fans of Dan Simmons.

And here is a new fanfic by Firework! Hope you like it! And if you could think of a title then thanks! <p> Dawn. <p> That is what time it happened. At dawn. The time that I, Luna, woke up screaming at the same time as my sister. <p> It was coming. <p> I got out of bed and sped to Celestia's room. My sister. <p> "Don't worry, Luna, it was just a dream..." she said <p> "No, sister, I can tell the difference between a dream and a vision, and that was a vision, not a dream." Says Luna gravely <p> Celestia's eyes widen "Then we must tell the Fourbirth..." she says. Luna nods and they go to their table and start writing a letter to Firework...
