A white guy writing Japanese fiction? No way! What a rare treat!

Honestly though, Lake did a great job of not coming off as a fanboy. He knew his history and culture and made good use of it. The story itself took a cliched period drama and injected it with the vampire craze. This isn't something that is really innovative for nerds like me but for those who haven't experienced wuxia it will be a new experience.
