Joanne Harris grew up into a pretty good writer, but this reissued early work doesn t really do her any favours. It s an overblown Gothic vampire story that adds little new to the genre; the villain is a Belle Dame Sans Merci type rather than an angsty young man in ruffles, but that s about as different as it gets. It s perfectly readable, and if it d been written by another author I might ve been less critical. But, then again, if it d been written by another author, I probably wouldn t have picked it up in the first place.
