I will read anything Francesca Lia Block publishes, as she was the author who "saved my life" when I was a teenager. So this review may be a little biased
I was interested in reading FLB's take on a vampire novel, since her works are always beautifully etheral and not quite grounded. I was satisfied with this short work. The vampire mythology was a hodgepodge of the familiar and a unique twist on it. This novel also had a decidely darker climax than some of her other works, but ended on a hopeful note.
I enjoyed this, and would recommend it to both Francesca Lia Block fans and 'vamp lit' fans alike.
