Rather than dealing in deep, world-changing schemes as it happens in other Warhammer Fantasy books, this one offers a light, yet-engaging story filled with unexpected outcomes, and action-packed challenges.
The lead character Ulrika, despite her new condition as a blood-sucking undead, provides us with a very human view on the unlife she's been cursed with. Her journey is filled with frustration and insecurities, but also, with self-discovery, and learning of her new abilities as a vampire, and the clashes between her new and old life.
The world is carefully built to bring sense to the environment around her. The characters, with a few exceptions, are complex, and each one adds to the story with their own skills. You can notice that each one is unique, separating from their fellows by thought, actions, and even speech.
The story is simple to follow, well-described, and doesn't waste time on pointless events.
