The steady pace of the ensemble of narrators creates a tone of eerie wonderment in this story of a rapidly growing vampiric species called Gloamings. The diversity of characters, including a scientist, an investigator, a journalist, and a butt-kicking vigilante, keeps the momentum high. The female narrations particularly stand out, given the necessity for clear distinction between a headstrong scientist and a determined nurse-turned-soldier. This is not a "fight-to-the-last-drop-of-blood" story. It is a historical timeline of both integration and uprising. Each narrator offers a different perspective on this "re-created" species. The cast effectively delivers first-person narrations that individualize the characters, creating an oral history of undesirable changes in a nonhuman society.
