Excellent book. Great characters and development. Creepy because it's all so plausible - that vampires exist and Eli is on are just additional aspects of the setting. Vampirism is not overdone, or overwrought at all. It's a seamless part of the setting that motivates the characters in quite reasonable ways. And the characters, you care about them, flawed as they all are. Definitely one of the best books I've read recently.Also, I should add that it's very nice to see that not all modern vampire fiction has devolved into glitter and schlocky romance. Vampires are visceral, primal things, so thanking, Mr. Lindqvist for writing this the way you did.
