Publisher's Summary

Benjamin Latham is young and handsome, his 18th-century mind wakened to a bizarre 20th-century world. And there is the need deep within...an animal need, frightening, murderous, unholy...a vital need that must be fed.

And with his need comes a power over men and women to do his bidding, to quiet his dark craving....

Until the murders begin.

And the inquiries. All suggesting the same hideous truth.

Now Benjamin must find a sanctuary: a lover, a partner, a friend. Someone who can share his darkness. Someone he can lead to...the awakening.

Publisher's note: This is the bestselling novel that the motion picture Heartstopper was based on.

Vampire Awesomeness!

This is a different take on vampires, and I like it.
It's thrilling and suspenseful. It's gruesome and graphic(not for kids). It's well written and well narrated.
I definitely recommend it.

At my request, I received this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.

A Different Kind Of Vampire Novel.

I have to admit that vampire novels are not my first choice but this tale may have changed that. It is very well written with a central character that we can empathise with in his quest. The plot has lots of nice twists, turns and deviations that keeps the listeners attention. The narration is nicely paced and adds to the pleasure of the book. Definitely worth a listen.
