So very, very tired of vampires – either good ones (Stoker, Rice) or bad ones (Twilight, Twilight, Twilight). But J.M. Dillard manages to come up with a fairly good vampire tale for a Star Trek novel. We get a bit of background on an Andorian crew member, as well as a relative of a guest star from the Original Series. The pacing is a bit slow at times, and there are a couple of breaks in logic, but all-in-all it’s an enjoyable tale and would’ve made an interesting episode.
