Stepping foot inside her father’s room is an important moment in the novel for Beth. There are also strict differences betweem the style of Darius’ room and those of the other vampires. Why is this so? What important aspects of the room are useful to Beth, and why is it important for her to see her father’s room as it applies to her transition into the life of a vampire?
2. The characters in the novel all have to go through an evolution of sorts to fully understand their paths in life.
