This is in contention with Peter Watts' Blindsight for “Best Vampire Novel Ever”.

Aliens, space vampires, space shape shifters, and a love story. Good times. (Also, who are we, and how does this relate to what we are?)

I think the premise for the novel was very interesting. I like when multiple mythologies are pulled into a single universe with an attempt for coherence. In particular, I loved the Marra - the idea of a species that exists only to "fit in" is an awesome concept for dissection and a great mirror for that piece of us that is always trying to find our place in the world. However, he sort of sullied the pure vision by making the Marra partially "emotional" - it felt a little like a convenient plot twist to get some romance into the novel. Additionally, it seemed a bit gratuitous to have two shapechanging species in a single novel without a link.

Good, but not as good as some of ther other boks. Somewhat similar to other books about aliens that conquer Earth and how one individual fights back. The twist here is that the freedom fighter is a vampire, though he's a good vampire... No, not that kind of good vampire, this came way before those recent books. I liked Way of the Pilgrim better, when talking about one man leading a fight against aliens.

Thought-provoking, intriguing, hard to put down for anything! I know 'Born in Conquest' was the first one, and I was curious if anyone knows if there are any others in the series.
