Review by: Ecowitch on Jan. 19, 2011 : star star star star
A rip-roaring rampage through the streets of Sheffield following Verlaine, the last vampire on earth, as he leaves a bloody legacy that few will ever forget. Whittaker's writing is vivid and graphic in all aspects and while some may consider it a little over-the-top it suits Verlaine's character perfectly as he chooses Walpurgis Night to take his leave from the world, on his terms and at a time of his choosing. This may be a short story but Whittaker crams a lot into it with a mix of in depth and fleeting characters. A gritty vampire story that certainly leaves its mark. Not for the faint-hearted.
