really liked it

Dark. The synopsis gives a good description of the book, so I will attempt to not rehash that but it's about vampires, religion and some witchcraft stuff goes on. I haven't read anything like this that I can recall and will say that this will be memorable for me. I will never forget reading this book. Gavin has done an amazing job of blending all these different aspects together to make for a compelling read. Some people may find this to be a bit gory in certain scenes. Let's just say my jaw dropped on several occasions from the grotesque nature of events that happened in this book. The writing is very detailed and gives a good visual idea of what in going on. The pace was a bit slow and it took me longer to read this than I would have liked...partly because I was freaked out (I'm a punk, you may like it). Okay, so the whole book is not scary but try it. The characters are interesting and the historical aspects are pretty cool. Sarah and her friends are brave to go chasing after a 900 year-old vampire or incredibly nuts. Overall, that ending was worth the read!
