This book is a really great read. It sucks you in (ha, see what I did there!) from the first page and keeps your attention until the end. It's full of the more traditional, scary, homicidal type of vampires who are planning world domination as opposed to the recent influx of 'good' vampires (who I'm not knocking by the way, because I am a huge fan of Twilight and Angel). There are definate echoes of Dracula and Salem's Lot in this novel, which is not a bad thing. I loved it and would definately recommend it to anybody who like to have some grrrr in their vampires!
