Heng gets sick all of a sudden, but not too sick to take the goats out, until one day he has to go to see the
local shaman, because he has started fainting.

Backpacking is a large part of the story, so guaranteed to keep backpackers amused and wondering. Just the book

Reviews of 'The Disallowed'
21st January 2014
'The Disallowed' is a vampire story with a difference, to say the least. Heng
Lee is a vampire of a new kind and he and his family source his requirements in unusual ways. It is humorous in
parts and well-worth reading. It is hard to say a lot more without giving too much away, you'll just have to read
it yourself, but you'll be glad you did - I promise! :-)
