Reading this novella was almost like reading Dracula. It was extremely similar, actually, which was honestly nice. The tone and style is very much like the great novel, and no one can (or should) ever take that as anything less than a compliment. For those who want a quick read, and a classic vampire style story, this is it. It is not for the faint of heart. This is a good old fashioned vampire story that brings you back to a time of purely classic writing. Kudos to Swiontek for a wonderful read, and giving me hope that authors today still understand what it takes to write like the greats.
