Protagonist already disliked NYC before the vampires even show up, and the tone of wanting to escape to the "normal" world is off putting. Flat characters, clunky writing, ends on a lead-in to whatever book 2 is.
I did really like the depiction of creepy vampires with varying degrees of intelligence, and the way vampirism was medicalized but still creepy.
