She becomes possessed and Vannaevar is forced to slay her and the other vampire. I feel the theme of the story is that there are many challenges to gaining power. A few quotes in the story are "There will be others. There are too many", Vannaevar told him. "And they are to powerful. Eventually, you will fall" I feel the book has this title "Prince Of The City" because Vannaevar has become the Prince of the city of San Francisco by all the stuff he has accomplished. He has gone through many things in the this city to help the society of the Camerilla. If I had to make one change in this book it would have to be not to have some many different characters in this story. There were so many unneccesary characters that is was hard to keep track of the story. Other than that the story was a great story. The author had different style's in this story. He used mood, tone, point of view, and tone. Some examples in the story would be when Vannaevar finds his girlfriend transformed into a vampire, it was a difficult and harsh mood for the Vannaevar . There was tone in that part of the story. The plot of the story was that Vannaevar was a vampire unwilling and became associated with a group of vampires looking for power.

Vannaevar and the end of the story became the Prince from contributing and because the other leaders were killed and were not able to decide on who would be the leader. Vannaevar got what he wanted which was power, but he had went through a lot for this. I felt this book was a pretty good book. It had a lot of drama in it. This book would be best for people who like vampire stories and scary story.
