I found this really interesting, not because of the vampires (ugh - even if this WAS written before they became cool) but because of the fascinating futuristic setting, which was really imaginative and well-thought-out. The writing was great, particularly the descriptions of all the Outlands communities, which were so real and detailed that I felt like I was there. The plot was quite unexpected and unique; it moved along fairly slowly, but not in a bad way. I prefer a slower pace to constant bre ...more

Ahh, vampires before they were popular, by one of my two favorite childhood authors.

I lost this book after reading it once, and I dearly wish I could return to it - but it's so hard to find a copy of it now.

Australia is captured very well in this book. I wonder if Jackie French and Sean Williams have ever had coffee together...

Dieses Buch habe ich nur gelesen, weil es schon ewig in meiner Bücherkiste lag. Im Laden hätte ich es mir inzwischen eher nicht gekauft. Leider liegt Teil 2 ebenfalls noch in meiner Kiste.

Das Buch spielt in einem futuristischen Utopia, in dem die meisten Menschen und Tiere genetisch modifiziert sind und man das Internet direkt im Kopf benutzen kann. Speziell geht es um Danielle, die Teil einer gleichermaßen modifizierten Gruppe war. Allerdings wurden in den Modifikationen Fehler gefunden, weshal

I enjoyed this book. It's on my TO BUY list as I really want to read it, and the rest of the series again. For anyone who likes post apocalyptic science fiction, viruses, technology and living in the wild, this book is worth the read.
Really interesting book, its not the typical vampire stories that we see these days. A good book to read for a change. A mix of dystopia,the supernatural and a bit of romance.
