I do not offer 5 stars, to anything, with a cavalier attitude. But, when I had read this book for the first time - in the 80 decade - I was awed right down to my toes.

The premise of the book is interesting. There are two types of vampires (who are really aliens), the sort who respect humans and want to get along, and the sort who want to rule humanity.

He goes on about being entirely committed, but then clearly isn't.
