An interesting tale in the realm of the vampire mythos as it brings forward the New England vampire rather than the European variety that we are all so familiar with.
Sarah Thomson brings forward with a few twists the story of Mercy Brown of Rhode Island who died in 1892 and was considered due fear and superstition to be considered a vampire and the last of her kind on these shores. The story is told through the actions and eyes of a modern day descendant of Mercy named Haley Brown.
It is with Haley that we learned the story of Mercy and how her actions may be affecting the family of Browns up to modern day. The tale itself is fast paced and interesting with history and action and if there was a slight to this small novel it is with Haley, a petulant and dislikable little girl at best.
Her selfishness seeps througout the book and I felt at times that it may not be the worst thing if the vampire got her after all.
