I wouldn't view this as a vampire story so much as a picaresque/character study with themes of rehabilitation and redemption. The supernatural element is secondary, but used as a vehicle in an innovative way. I thought it was pretty good, but not necessarily enjoyable to someone who wants either a straightforward monster scare *or* a cleaned-up romantic vamp. Hinton gives you something more complicated, with elements of both, and a great deal more humanity than either.
