    This is the proverbial vampire novel run amok. The antagonist, for lack of a better term, is a wild young man who cavorts with animals in the solitary world of the vampire. Made that way quite by accident, young Dane is suddenly pulled away from the world he knows and thrust into a strange new one. Unfortnately for him, there are those who would rather he not be in their midst, and a colorful array of vampire hunters converge on the small Nebraska town where he resides. Their quiest is not to dispose of him (at least not at first) but to capture and study him. This novel is full of interesting takes on the nature of the vampire and his place in the world. The characters are quirky, and they take us on some very unexpected plot twists, all done with great style and humor. It sends the reader down dark roads that are brightened by author Kevin Casey's droll sense of the absurd. Most absurd of all is how this young man is forced to cope with day-to-day life (or lack thereof) in the... More > modern world. He has nothing but his own keen wits to drive him on, and yet in the end his youth and inexperience betray him. Other great characters in this book include Sheriff Kelly, who wants nothing more than to rid his county of the menace of the vampire; Eleanor Tomlinson, the sophisticated director of a foundation dedicated to hunting vampires; Digger Bowles, a huge and forceful man who is Eleanor's assistant and his protege Don, who does Digger's bidding. There are other peripheral characters who weave in and out of the story, each with his or her own outrageous reason for being involved. This book has been praised by critics, and deserves to be. As a first attempt at novel writing,Casey has shown us something new, with the promise of more good work in the future.< Less
