At first I was afraid it was going to be a vampire story, and so I was glad it definitely wasn't. I enjoyed the combination of characters from the academic world--most of the book is set on a college campus--and the subplot with a professor in death studies. I learned stuff while reading this book.
Plus: Suspenseful; well-developed characters
Minus: Somewhat unsatisfying resolution (I always want evil people to be punished appropriately.)
