This is One of the best epics of vampirism I have ever read. The vampires are coming to take over LA. The human and vampire characters are all well done. McCammon threw some very new twists into the takeover of one of our biggest cities. I wont give any away but I have enjoyed every page. A classic!!
I read this book in the 80's and then again in 2009, and I loved it all over again. I like this book as well as any Stven King book I have read. A "modern" day vampire story with likeable and believable characters and plot. The author really pulls you into the world and workings of a vampire cult, and the people who try to stop them. I recommend it if you like a good scary story.
