I'm about 15 pages into chapter 4. I think the pace will start to pick up a bit here. I did enjoy rereading the first 3 chapters, they sort of set the atmosphere of the story. You go from the garden section of New Orleans, which is hot, brooding, almost sort of haunted, to a bustling San Francisco, the town which never quits, never stops moving. As I'm reading it, bits and pieces of it are coming back to me from previous readings, but I really don't remember alot of the finer details, so it's still an enjoyable read. (Don't you hate it when you start a book that you think you've never read, only to know exactly what is going to happen next, and later find out that you read it 5 years ago, lol).
I had kind of forgotten that it takes so long to get into the actual story, or maybe I'm just impatient because I LOVE the part dedicated to the Mayfair Witches. That won't arrive for a bit yet, but the story of Rowan and Michael is good enough to hold my interest till that time.
Happy reading everybody!
