I may be getting tired of getting the references, but the plot's reasonable. Newman's conceit that almost all supernatural beings are types of vampire is strained here, though.
It is good to see _fiction_ about the most powerful nation in the world falling to an entirely unsuitable person….
Someone should have compiled a list of Japanese words—and Japanisations of foreign words—used in the piece, and given the narrator proper pronunciations. I fear I place the responsibility for his Christina Light's generic Yank voice on his shoulders—she is upper-class and raised mostly in Italy, so that's not right at all.
