Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The most clever and riveting vampire novel since Dracula.” Dean Koontz
“One of the ten all-time best novels of vampirism.” Fangoria
“[A] sink-your-teeth-in vampire masterpiece. It will change the way you look at yourself and the amalgam of the world around you right now…If ever a book was made to read in one sitting, this complex horror novel is it.” SFsite.com
“The incomparable talents of Robertson Dean shine as he becomes Neville, and the listener can only follow his lead ever deeper into this nightmare world. Dean has a unique voice and manages to make the storytelling a personal experience. We are there with him, panicking one minute, sighing with relief the next, aching with intolerable loneliness, then facing terrifying clashes with the vampires. This is one of those magical audiobooks that you simply have to enjoy in one session, so be sure to set aside the time.” AudioFile
“In a tale that plays with the slippery slope of sanity, Dean makes the perfect choice for a narrator. His powerful performance proves chilling and haunting. As Neville teeters on the edge of sanity, Dean manipulates his tone, speed, emphasis and projection accordingly, making listeners tremble with his narration.” Publishers Weekly (starred audio review)

Outstanding

This book is so good! Highly recommend listening. If you are hesitant to read it because you have already seen the movie, don't worry, the story is completely different in almost every way. The story itself is very thought provoking and full of suspense. A must listen!

The Movie was good but the book is better!

I think this book is 10x better then what the movie did to it. I don't give away plots in my reviews but I will say this, other than the title, the movie does not follow the book at all. Listen and enjoy. Narrator does a great job too.

Fantastic

I will usually try to listen to the book before the movie, as I think most people do. This book on its own merit was creepy. A good old survivor, surrounded by the creatures of the night. No spoilers, not even the movie could spoil this ending!

Robertson Dean was great. The pain, sorrow, loneliness, perfectly portrayed.

Loved this book's ending. Better than the movie (which I enjoyed just as much)!
