I read this as a review ARC for VOYA, it's one of the few books they assign to me that I would have never read otherwise. It features ninjas who are also vampires, so my first question naturally was: are ninja vampires the Reeses peanut butter cup of literature, two great tastes that taste great together? The answer is yes and no- there was a great emphasis on the ninja angle and the bloodsuckers sort of got short shrift. The book was okay, but if a vampire fan reads it expecting to get lots of vampiric glory they'll feel shortchanged for sure. As a quest story with a Far Eastern flavor, it works better than a as traditional vampire book.

Deborah Marks No this is not a book to recommend to fans of vampire literature. Vampirism is not the main focus, it is incidental. I would recommend this book to someone looking for an exciting adventure story.
