At one time they were also the site of execution and burial of criminals, witches and vampires, as they were believed beyond the power of the devil and his own.
This collection of dark, creepy and downright weird stories encompasses all this and more and makes a brilliant read.

What I discovered was a unique gem in vampire fiction. An extremely well written, in-depth character study of someone who has turned into a vampire and how he has to fit this change into his life. And it’s that last part that makes this book so intriguing. Many stories I’ve read, the vampire runs away from their life and starts over. Often the vampire has means, so he only needs to deal with the cravings. But Henry’s case is different. He doesn’t have the financial means to just hole up in some dark mansion, sulking. He also doesn’t have any family to protect, having runaway from an abusive father years before. Nor does he need to worry about a significant other. He’s a lonely writer, who struggles to stay afloat with small, low paying jobs. Henry doesn’t―and really can’t—runaway from his old life.
As we go through the book, we see that Henry accepts his change (even enjoys it on occasion) and it is in fact his old life that is the true albatross around his neck. He still needs to pay the bills, his lifelong dreams of being a recognized author doesn’t go away and his loneliness is ever present. In many ways, this book reminded me of real life. I’ve known people who were forced to face devastating news (a dying family member, a cancer prognosis, etc) yet the problems of daily life (paying the bills, problems with the kids, problems at work) still remain center stage.
