What made this otherwise average vampire tale stand out for me was the view into the "life" of the undead. What one carries and what one loses from the human; living through the passing of centuries; the "making" of a vampire and its gift and its price; relations between vampires; all this engaged me in the story. At midlife myself, I can feel the pull of changing society, of the loss of people I have known, of having undergone some metamorphoses myself. The vampires, while definitely other in their need for human blood and human life, nevertheless had some connection for me which nourishes after the end of the book.
