|So I randomly decided to reread this series, but I am still not sure whether I'm getting the story straight...
My interpretation is as follows:
Spoiler (highlight to view)
So somewhere near the end of the series, we discover the identity of the most essential character of the story...
Adrian Dubon--an angel who came down to earth to welcome a new angel (Eva)
And so, my understanding is that he came down to the earth centuries before even meeting Eva, meets Michael, gets to close to him, causing him to become obsessively in love with him which leads to him trying to kill himself. After which, Adrian saves him from dying by giving him eternal youth as a vampire...
And, around the same time he meets a little girl who can see the angels around him saying that they will disappear when he meets the girl with two souls, Eva.
--so this part was revealed (I'm guessing) to show that the reason why Eva feels the need to get her son, Ken, to become a vampire. [Since Eva met and fell in love(?) with Adrian and conceived his soulless child--probably resulting in the loss of the angels--she felt she needed to give Adrian something back in return to keep him company for eternity(?)]<--okay so I can pass this off as skewed logic due to blind love, but then again, can angels really love?
Which is a really weird way to look at things to give Eva really really skewed logic. But Michael had said Adrian kept something from Eva--which I forgot and can't seem to find, so I'm sticking with my skewed logic above...
So the thing about two souls confuses me a little too. The thought of two souls actually made me think about this episode in the Simpsons in which Bart sells his soul to Milhouse and then in his dream of the afterlife he didn't have anyone to row a boat with (Not being religious or anything I don't know if this has any significance or relation). So assuming Eva is special just because she's Eva, and everyone has two souls, Michael who had almost died and was then turned into a vampire had lost one of his souls in the transaction(?)[is that even important?]
Okay, well considering that Michael can't live normally since he doesn't have two souls, Eva and Ken must have only been able to since they were being protected by ('the mysterious force') Adrian. So Adrian sacrificed his angels to produce Ken, and turned himself into a ghost in the process... by giving all his powers to Ken (which he later comes by to suppress, by giving him that necklace).
So why did he father Ken anyways? It wasn't clear whether or not he loved Eva. Could it be that he fathered Ken as a means of somehow correcting the mistake of leaving Michael with loneliness? It seems, from the story, that Michael is the only vampire in the world. A vampire Adrian created, by unintentionally getting too close to a human.
*getting sleepier, reasoning declines*
So, because Adrian made Michael fall in love with him, Michael turns into a vampire, and although he has the ability to beget more vampires (like making Ken into one...) he doesn't because he lost the ability to love anything enough to want to keep company? So, Adrian fathers Ken with Eva, causes them to meet Michael somehow, trying to keep his offspring happy and teaching them to love? And in the process he keep an eye on Eva preventing her from dying a lonely death so that he can welcome her back to heaven? (killing two birds with one stone--fixing his mistake with Michael, and continuing his original duty of welcoming Eva to heaven?)
ya.. that's all I've got.. I don't really understand how Eva and Michael 'first met' they only showed their 'second meeting'--that was weird...
Oh, and so in the end, to prevent Michael from dying in the sun, I assume Jae went back and 'risked her life to save him' by giving him her blood--likely to the point of no return which caused him to have to turn her into a vampire and thus they lived happily ever after?
One of the problems I had with the story was that everyone was so androgynous and looked alike; that and the scenes were choppy, so it was hard to tell who was in which scene and where it fell into place with the timeline.
The story was good, but so intricately woven that it was almost impossible to discern. I'll probably read it again, and still not understand much more than what I understand of it now.
Something new I did learn after rereading it this time is that that little girl was not Eva... for some reason I had thought that it was her, until I took in the details of the background and the wording... truly confusing.
*sorry its so long O_O*
