It's not every day you get to read a book about vampires in space, and it was a fun romp of a book.
The world building set up is interesting - Croft has created a world where we have multiple flavors of humans, from regular to genetically modified to immortals of both old and new varieties. Our heroine is an immortal of the new variety, and our hero is an immortal of the old variety. While we don't know much about the universe at large, we get broad strokes enough to paint our own details of how things have developed.
There's humor, the secondary characters (the crew) are developed enough that you want to know their stories, and there's a happy ending. We don't see much of the relationship development between the two main characters, but we are "told" it's been a slow build (over the 10 days they are together). The lust is instantaneous on both of their parts, and they let it be a slow build to the end.
I enjoyed the people, I enjoyed the story, but I think what will have me picking up the next book is to see more of this world Croft has drafted and the romance will be a nice bonus. And I love that the next book is a continuation of the over all story but about a separate couple. (Yay for HEAs and no cliffhangers!)
