I have mixed feelings about this story, but I think in the end, I enjoyed it more than not.
The style is interesting, and I think that's where some of my unease came from. It definitely set a good tone for the type of story this is, but at times it just wasn't working for me. The mythology that was established in so short of s story is to be admired. While brief, it gives a nice glimpse into the world this vampire narrator is part of.
I also think this story was enough for me to check out other work from the author.
