"Even monsters need families. What are the "bamboo"? They are from China. They look just like us. They live by night. They drink human lifeblood, but otherwise keep their distance. And every century, they grow white blooming flowers. A boy name Kyo is saved from the precipice of death by Bamboo, a vampire born of the tall grasses. They start an enjoyable, yet strange shared life together, Kyo and the gentle Bamboo. But for Bamboo, communication with a human being is the greatest sin"-- Provided by publisher.

A fresh take on vampire lore, this time set in Japan and China. The first story is the strongest in this collection. The second is a followup and the third is backstory, but it's probably best to read them in the order presented.

I read an advance reader copy of this, identical to what's in the catalog, and it's a text novel, not a graphic novel. Good, but not a graphic novel.
