The best vampire horror novel i've read! Jan 8, 2007
I love this novel; everything about it! The style in which it was written, the attention to detail (without droning on and on with tedius superfluous descriptions), the story, the characters, etc. The main character, John, is easy to identify with. He seems like a realistic character to me (despite being a century year old vampire lol). I felt i could relate to his situations, both when he was a weak awkward human and when he was a powerful struggeling revenant; this goes to show how well Farrington succeeds in taking us into the character's mind. I loved this the most about how he writes! He goes into so much depth concerning the protagonist's state of mind and inward struggle that it made me care for the character. I also thought the character development was done extremely well! The transition in John was so believable and yet so extreme. This novel isn't really a horror novel in the classic sense. The main character is not pure evil manifested. He is instead like all of us; struggling at times to perceive right from wrong. But that is what i love so much about the novel. You get the sense that you're struggling along with the character to make sense of everything. This novel does contain a lot of gore though so it's pretty scary as well. I totally recommend it to any horror fans or any fiction fan in general.
Horror At Its Best! Nov 19, 2003
Book is written after the style of LeFanu. You will think this author was born in the 1800's as he attempts and achieves this style of classic horror writing. Vampire books ordinarily are not high on my list of horror reads but this one has changed that!
