Jeremiah Fall finds himself turned into a creature of the night. A Puritan, he soon discovers his base urges are incompatible with his Puritan ethics. The strict manner he was raised contributes to his keeping his internal beast from overwhelming his gentler sensibilities.
I enjoyed the historic aspects of the book. It did jump around a great deal and not just in the paranormal vampire manner. I guess morality play would be an apt description. Jeremiah’s struggles to come to terms with his internal beast provide the motivating factor of his search for a cure.
The book was darkly entertaining with some bizarre philosophic overtones on the substance of existence.
I recommend the book.
