I got interested in this series after seeing the show on the sci fi channel, and the books are much better than the TV show, of course. In fact, now that I've finished the books, I have to wonder where did the TV script writers get their ideas? Only a few of the episodes bear any resemblance to any of the novels, and even those are quite distorted. Who decides these things? Where did they get their ideas?

The characters on the show seemed true to the books, but the stories were mostly completely new- and often at odds with "facts" that were stated in the books. Weird. I wonder how much input the author had? Anyway, I liked the books, even though I don't generally go for this sort of genre, whatever it might be considered. Contemporary Dark Fantasy, maybe? :shrug:

I like this author's style. :)
