'Bram Stoker can stop turning in his grave: his 21st-century legacy extends beyond Twilight.' - The Telegraph

'Enough weaponry to satisfy the most warlike of pre-teen boys and enough action on every page to qualify for a health warning' - Belfast News

'Injects some blood and thunder back into the vamp mythos!this is a lively set-up to what looks to be a fun and blood-soaked YA thrill ride' - SFX Magazine

'Hill hits the ground running in this explosive debut, an action thriller inspired by a genre classic! This is a nonstop thrill ride right up to the cliffhanger ending. This cinematic adrenaline rush has the makings of a surefire hit.'  Publishers Weekly

'Plenty of high-octane action, groovy specialized vampire-fighting equipment, buckets of gore, intriguing historical side trips and even a little romance!'  Kirkus Reviews
