My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This was a lovely, snarkily-toned romp wherein a descendent of Van Helsing, Greta Helsing, is a doctor who treats the monstrous (vampires, vampyres, ghouls, demons, etc.) residents of London.
A religious cult begins a serial-killer spree of killing Greta’s patients, and she and dear family friends and colleagues work together to put a stop to it.
If you love references to Old Timey Monsters (yes, there is a difference between a vampire and a vampyre in this universe, quite a few, actually), and groups of people who become found family because of shared adventures and affection, and a narratorial voice that is wry enough to make you laugh out loud occasionally, this is a novel for you.
