A "vampire" story, as told by the knight from the Canterbury Tales. A clever premise, but I found the book itself somewhat dull. I did enjoy the historical aspect of it, and thought it had a good medieval feeling to it, but I found myself skimming through because I wanted to know how it ended, but wasn't all that interested in how it got there. I did learn some things - the author uses a lot of archaic terms that I wasn't sure about, so I kept Googling things to find out the meanings. The ending, though, was pretty cool, and after I'd finished, I felt as thought I did enjoy the book, even though the actual reading of it wasn't all that thrilling. I'm not sure this makes any sense. I can't say I'd recommend it, but I am satisfied to have read it. ( )
