Three stylish vampires arrive in New Orleans just in time for Mardis Gras, and then disappear again. While in the city, the group's leader, Zillah, meets and impregnates an adolescent girl. Fifteen years later, the child of that pairing, a boy who calls himself simply "Nothing" is living with adoptive parents in the suburbs, where he – like so many other teens – feels isolated and out of place. The answer is, his father is a vampire, leaving Nothing hovering precariously between worlds.
When Nothing runs away from home he meets up with none other than Zillah and his small troupe, Molochai and Twig. Together they go on a quest to seek out Nothing's favorite band, Lost Souls. Nothing is aided along the way by a psychic named ghost, and their relationship leads to the ultimate inner battle where Nothing must choose between his wild, vampiric heritage, or preserving his humanity to save the life of another.
" Rather than horror, Lost Souls prompts disgust mixed with morbid titillation, but it will surely be devoured by genre aficionados. . " (

Gratuitous sex scenes and predictable story.
The narrator gave an excellent performance, and I think Brite has a very descriptive and evocative writing style. I'd be tempted to try another story, but I didn't enjoy the narrative here quite as much as I thought I would.
Predictable, and unfortunately rather dull.
No -- the ending seemed to comfortably (though very conveniently) round things up.
I may have come to this book too late. It was full of graphic and gratuitous sex scenes, to the point that they became annoying and largely irrelevant.
