This was a fun quick read. Dan Wells is a terrific writer. It has an understandable main character, with few side characters from classic English literate. The main plot is interesting but the funny Gothic twists really make the book. This book is definitely worth a read.

Starts off very clever and interesting. I found the beginning quite funny. It was a take on a novel that wasn't quite a real novel, you didn't expect it to be great and for that reason it was quite good. Towards the end the author tried to make the book more serious, and that is when it lost me. Overall I enjoyed it.

The travails of a would-be forger being chased by inept vampires, an over-loquacious poet, and a revenge-seeking ex-girlfriend (to name just a few), the sometimes convoluted plot of A Night of Blacker Darkness would be more at home with Monty Python or Douglas Adams than Bram Stoker.
