I'm NOT into vampire books but the first page caught me and I was hooked. It is done in a NOT classic version of what we have come to expect of Vampires but rather in a mystery, historical and culture style of writing that made this a book a great read for both children and adults. It starts with a boy who escapes the wrath of an evil vampire god and is befriended by a homeless boy who is streetsmart and also a thief. They become friends and then the homeless boy finds out the boy he helped escape comes from a wealthy family and together they go in search of a way to kill this vampire god and rescue his father who was left behind on an island in Mexico---very very good reading. A quick-read but great on mystery and cultures and I was hooked and had to by the sequals [Paris, Mexico], and ended up wishing this were made into a movie--it is THAT good.

the book was okay, but it was a little childish in a sense, but if you absolutely love vampyre books, you can get into it easily
