This was a fun read, and it was nice to see vampires brought back to what they were originally: dark, evil and scary creatures. These vampires don't drip with sexuality, and their lashing tongue appendage took a little getting used to, but it was definitely an interesting twist on what is now (in my opinion) the overused vampire character. No sparkly, high school vampires' here. I really enjoyed the suspenseful plot and liked the whole vampirism passed via a virus concept. I'm definitely going on to the next book so that I can see if Setrakian and Eph are successful.
