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.

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

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

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.
