"Vampires, pirates, and lusty French socialites: now, that's a recipe for a good time. Hinton has written an adult novel that can awaken the rough-and tumble child in anyone. Hinton's ability to engage hasn't faded." - The New York Times "A dark, funny, scary, suspenseful tale that will entertain mainstream and adventure/horror readers alike. The basic elements that made her book The Outsiders a long-time bestseller are present in this rousing read. This is a contemporary Treasure Island with a genrebending twist." - Publishers Weekly"
