Tomas and his son, Peter, travel all the time. Tomas always has a box of unknown objects that he hides from Peter. He digs a moat around anywhere they live. But when they settle in a small village in the dead of winter, the things they have been running from catch up and they all face a soulless enemy.
I really liked this book it was an easy read too. the characters are flawed and have really distinct personalities. The legendary creatures are portrayed as they were actually seen as in the 1700s. Since I watch to much horror I didn't find it that scary but it does have scenes that are rather creepy and unexpected. The end is really good, but I most definitely did not expect it.
I suggest if you like creepy books or if you like real vampires to read it. I wouldn't read it if you scare easily unless your trying to freak yourself out.
