The early scenes are set in during the Battle of the Somme, though that must be happening on a different part of the front and is never mentioned. As we know from Stoker, Mina and Jonathan Harker had a child called Qunicy, and he is now a captain in the trenches. His new communications officer is Lieutenant John Shaw, who has a rather insipid sister called Lily. So you know in half a dozen pages which damsel will be in distress this time. By page 25 you may be rolling your eyes in disbelief at the cavalier way history is treated.

In , she had a son, named Joshua Josh. My dad gave me a kitten when I was six: a small black, gentle cat. She would follow me around the house waiting for me to sit down so she could clamber onto my lap and purr. Since then I have never been without a cat. Even at University I found a cat to love: a black tom who lived in the halls of residence. He would slip into my room and sleep on my bed and when I left the University and set up my own home, the first thing I acquired was a cat.
I have three cats now. My eldest cat is a grumpy granddad of a cat who loves to sleep in the warmest place he can find to rest his aching bones. Flower and Miu-Miu are much younger; a brother and sister we found in a rescue home.
They love it when I write; as soon as they see me at my keyboard, Willow settles himself under the radiator in my study and Flower curls up on the chair behind me, while Miu-Miu lounges across my desk pressing the keys with his paws with every languorous stretch. They graciously share their home with my partner Geoff and my seven-year-old son, Joshua, who love them almost as much as I do. Writing Warriors gives me the chance to imagine that world.
I used to worry about my cats, out alone in the dark by themselves. But the ThunderClan cats have taught me that there is nothing for them to fear, only adventures to be enjoyed.

Shelving books is a good way to discover new ones to read, and I picked this one up to read the back cover. My first thought was that this was another of those books getting in on the vampire trend in YA, and that turned me off. I had read Dracula for fun the summer before, and loved it, so My interest was piqued.
Like the original novel, Bloodline is an epistolary novel written entirely in letters, diary entries and news articles. A second novel, titled Bloodline: Reckoning was later released.
