A gripping story about a Fringer (unregistered human) in a post-apocalyptic world run by vampires; the hook is that she gets turned almost immediately (not a spoiler--it's in the flap copy) but tries to stay human in her actions. What I most enjoyed about this book was NOT the teen romance, the sword-fighting, or the hunt for Eden (a humans-only city), but what I enjoy most about all vampire narratives: the part where the vampire passes as human. I love a passing narrative. What can I say. That said, I don't think I'll read the inevitable string of sequels. I got what I needed.
