Publisher's Summary

Families. Sometimes they're a bloody nightmare....

Life with the Radleys: Radio 4, dinner parties with the Bishopthorpe neighbours and self-denial. Loads of self-denial. But all hell is about to break loose. When teenage daughter Clara gets attacked on the way home from a party, she and her brother, Rowan, finally discover why they can't sleep, can't eat a Thai salad without fear of asphyxiation and can't go outside unless they're smothered in factor 50.

With a visit from their lethally louche uncle Will and an increasingly suspicious police force, life in Bishopthorpe is about to change. Drastically.

Missed potential

This felt like it could have been so much better than it actually was. I wasn't keen on the narrator, and the writing in the present tense just felt odd. Not for me.

Perfect duo

Matt Haig and Mark Meadows are the perfect team. What a fantastic book. I love Matt Haig’s writing style and Mark Meadows’ voice just takes you away. I loved this book.

Give it a miss and move on

Found this book to be very boring and couldn’t wait for it to end. Most annoying family.

Usually love Matt Haig but…

There was just something lacking in this book for me. Usually a huge fan of Matt Haig’s work but this time it just didn’t hit the mark unfortunately.

Family drama with fangs

If you can get over the vampire/bloodthirsty vibe this is a well told family drama. As usual Haig has woven the mythical into the 21st century artfully & the plot keeps you guessing. Didn't love the characters but I think that might have been intentional? #walkerbookrv #booktwt

A great story. Interesting tale, different concept and an excellent ending. The narrator was great too!
