This is a great, well-developed gothic horror story. The vampire mythology he creates is original. His writing style is beautiful. There are lots of twists and turns you won't see coming. And he uses real-life figures really well.

This is among the best vampire book I've read. It's on a par with Anne Rice's work. If you like Anne Rice, you'll probably like this.
