Latest Reviews From Amazon UK - 5 stars "Great book, with a great storyline" By covgal72 "This book is great value for money. It takes on a different angle of vampire story, rather than the usual Vlad the Impaler, or teen love story. I loved the little snippets of background on each character, and I can see lots of scope for a series of books. This book would make a great movie. Five stars from me." 5 stars Actual Vampires!

Great wee read, got through it in a weekend." 4 stars: Fantastic story that ticks all the boxes By Andrew Morrison I really loved this book and I would recommend it to any vampire fans (Twilight fans need not apply, this is a real vampire story)." Five Stars: Great Read For Holidays By SusieV "I do not usually read vampire books but having read The Passage and Twelve I thought I would try this. I found the story kept your attention and must admit did not guess the ending. It's an easy read with possibly more sexual perversion than I would like but that did not spoil my enjoyment of it.
