I am through volume 8 of the 34 volumes that comprise the series. Which means that I am a little bit under one quarter of the way through. Julia has just discovered that Barnabas is a vampire, and is now confronting him about it. Considering that Julia’s attention is one of the key elements to the major triangle series – well quadrangle if you include Angelique – it’s fascinating to see how long it’s taken to get to this point. As far as I am concerned, we are now just one character (Angelique) away from the true core of the series being in place. That’s interesting, because my favorite character is Quentin who has yet to even appear. It’s funny to think about where he fits in. Well, we will have plenty of time to explore that in the weeks ahead. And that’s the part I’m really looking forward to!
