Any Hong Kong reader, and outsiders too, will delight in Houng's vivid, mesmerizing, and occasionally unpalatable portrait of her hometown.
The paranormal elements, and a murder mystery, are subtly layered into the narrative to provide historical and emotional context rather than blood and gore.
Houng keenly observes Chinese culture, customs and folklore and the way in which they interact with modern Chinese life.
Houng as an impressive understanding of local customs, beliefs and youth culture.
A raunchy, fast-paced vampire saga infused with the sights, people and atmosphere of Hong Kong.
I literally could not stop reading it once I had started. I think that the idea for the story is brilliant. I would definitely recommend this book to other people.
I really enjoyed the novel. I will buy it instantly when it's published.
Jane Houng not only tells a tale of love, it is also a modern re-telling of a Chinese myth that is breathtakingly fabulous.
I really love the dark undercurrents in the novel, and the prose, which is brilliant. It’s just so readable.
It captured my attention from the beginning.
