This is not (likely) your teenage daughter's vampire novel--thankfully! The story delves into an alternate history involving the protagonist's escape from 17th century vampire run Britain, and an adventure into the heart of Africa. I was actually maybe twelve when I read this for the first time,(I've read it several times since), but it's definitely geared towards a more adult audience. Though the pace can be a bit slow at times, there's plenty of sex and violence to keep one's attention. For the patient, mature reader, this might be one of the more interesting takes on vampire mythology you'll read. The details are astonishing, and the journey is epic! But if you don't like historical fiction and/or have a firm, unwavering idea of what a vampire has to be, then this book probably isn't for you.
