I can virtually guarantee that you have never read a book that purports to be about vampires like this one before! This story is not your Trad Vlad Gothic tale of old by any means!

The Disallowed by Owen Jones is billed as 'The Story of a Contemporary Vampire Family' and as such bears more of a relationship with the Addams Family than any Hammer House of Horror film from the Sixties or Seventies.

Heng Lee, the main character in the book, is a goatherd, who suffers catastrophic organ failure over a short period of time while going about his life and work in the mountains where he has a farm and lives with his family: a wife and two teenage children.

Heng is expected to die, because they do not have enough money to pay for proper hospital treatment, which in any case is a long way off. However, the local Shaman comes up with an idea that might save his life.

The cure is radical and comical, but it does seem to work, although it changes Heng completely and in such a way, that others want to be like him. This is the charming and often humorous story of Heng Lee - a modern vampire, his contemporary vampire family and the whole community where they live.

Do modern vampires really exist? You may wish that you could join Heng and his community too after reading this story, Jones makes it sound almost idyllic!
