Product description


"Dripping in blood, this is a story of family secrets so terrible that they shouldn't be uncovered." (Guardian)

"Red-blooded fiction at its most seductive." (Sunday Telegraph)

"Delightfully eccentric . . . a strangely moving portrait of a marriage." (The Financial Times)


A sharp, bloody tale of abstinence and indulgence (and
trying not to eat the neighbours).

" (Steven Hall, author of The Raw Shark Texts)

"Reality bites in a funny family affair. . . pointed, clever and witty." (Kim Newman Independent)

"A witty and humane story about a family of vampires living in respectable English suburbia." (Daily Mail)

"Haig's very original spin on the [vampire] myth is insightful, frightening and uplifting." (The Guardian)

"Smart, snappy, quirky . . . as much a satire on self-denying suburban life as a straightforward bloodthirsty tale." (Scotsman)

"Ratchets up the pace and the tension until the taut conclusion. Bloody good fun." (SFX Magazine)

"Switches deftly between a classic Carrie-style narrative of teen difference, in which the kids are teased for their outsiderness, and a parental tale of mid-life crisis." (Herald)
