Different take on vampires, to an extent anyway. I think Olson could have gone full-length with this and filled in the background on some of the characters. Lindy, for example, seems to be at least 1,500 years old. I’d love a spin-off with her history – either with or without Hector. Doesn’t matter. And part of me would love to have a solo story about Giselle. She’s unapologetic in her sadism, and I find it interesting. Villains tend to be more exciting in that way anyhow.
There’s other things that are referred to – the “coming out” of the vamps (or shades, as they’re called here), and the Eradication – that I want to know how things went down.
I’ll definitely be looking for more.
