    Fantastc read

    A moody, atmospheric vampire tale shot through with humour, longing and horror. The characters and worldbuilding were engrossing and made the book hard to put down. The vivid, living, complex and dark Mexico City portrayed has a life of its own. Certain Dark Things is one of the best vampire novels I have read in recent years, right up there with Enter, Night and Let the Righr One In.

    I never wanted to read another vampire novel

    I'm surprised at how good this book is. It insanguinates the generally anemic vampire genre with an extensive set of vampire sub-species, taken from various mythologies,and then instantiates several of these in memorable characters to carry the story. That story takes place in the supposed vampire-free Mexico City. I had to keep looking up the neighborhoods on Wikipedia since I know nothing about the city, and now know just how ignorant I am about Mexico in general and the city in particular. I'm impressed by how well the author gets into the minds of the nearly human but clearly alien creatures she creates. And it's a page-turner.
