Great choice. I hope its nice and cold (preferably snowy) where you live, because this is a perfect book for curling up with. As with most Anne Rice books, most people either love it or hate it. Hopefully, you'll love it.
Now, let's see what you've missed out on.
Mystery Book X was... da, da, da, daaaahhh....
The Playboy Sheik's Virgin Stable-Girl
Yes, that's right! You missed the read of the century. Smart Bitches, gave it a D-.
Oh, the fun you might have had. Actually, I'm seriously considering picking up a copy for myself. Too intriguing to resist! (g)
Ah, well, maybe next time! Until then...
*Edited to add: did anyone else read the sub-title as, The Royal House of Kebab? Or was that just me?
