More Gothic and Victorian literary intertextuality that you can shake a wooden stake at. Slicker than a tanto blade after seppuku with only faintly marred with staccato transitions into action scenes. So sharp it might cut itself with its own cleverness.
If literary influences bit each other to create a super-vampire this book would be the get of: Dracula, Frankenstein, Lovecraft, Loan Wolf and Cub, the Tempest.
