¶ A highly acclaimed Vampire novel. The author's first book, an extended version of the short story 'The Seed of Lost Souls'. "The book is tight, au courant, and unsparingly tragic . What Poppy Brite excels at is delineating the vampiric world in which outsiders and runaways try to survive. It's a deceptively alluring, sensually and sexually charged environment . In the truest sense Lost Souls is the most effective sort of horror novel .... one of the most auspicious debuts in contemporary fiction in recent memory." - Locus, November 1992.
