Things aren't what they used to be. Vlad tries very hard to be normal; has tried hard, ever since marrying Sarah and settling down to raise their son Paul. Both of them are determined he will be a normal child. He enjoys sports, does homework grudgingly, gets poor report scores. His mother is a librarian; his father, as far as he knows, is an accountant. And Vlad is a good accountant, as long as he remembers to make enough mistakes to appear human. He spends his life reining himself in, frustrated, blunting and deadening his responses, committed to this masquerade. But patience wears thin. And, when Vlad makes an appointment to see Paul's teacher, to discuss his disappointing grades, he finds the old hunger awakening. It would be easy. So easy. But what of the choice he has made? A darkly humorous and moving take on vampire folklore. ( )

Really liked the mixing of mundane parenthood with the vampire mythos, and teaching our children to truly be who they are, even if it is different than everyone else. ( )
