For some reason I thought this book was going to go in a completely different direction. By the middle of the book I thought I had it figured out and then the ending really threw me for a loop. It certainly isn't the vampires of Twilight. What you'll find here is a whole lot more gritty and a lot darker. Even so, I really liked having the vamps be more gruesome. If you think about it, how could they not be? It isn't a very pleasant thing to crave blood, even if vampires have been heavily romanticized in the last few years. I liked it. I think I'll go and pick up some of Haig's other books.
