Read in July, 2009

Not the easiest read & in terms of Elizabeth Knox books there are 4 others that I certainly prefer ahead of this. It took a while to settle into the story and I became lost several times as the story jumped between characters and through history but it did all pull together eventually in an intriguing portrayal bringing together Brian 'Bad' Phelan a NZ survivor of the Dart River (really read 'Cave Creek') Tragedy; French Jesuit Father Daniel Octave and vampires spanning decades and in some cases centuries of European existence. Whilst Knox's writing creates fascinating imagery this does not always emerge easily and deeper understandings of the book seem to come on later reflection through adding my own interpretations. In other words not a smooth or comfortable read.
