The DisallowedHeng Lee is a goatherd in the remote mountains north east of Chiang Rai in northern Thailand very close to the border with Laos It is a tight knit community where everyone knows one another Heng gets sick all of a sudden but not too sick to take the goats The comedy in this book starts out well especially when dealing with Den the teenaged son of the main character Heng Den is not having any luck with the ladies and has started having stray thoughts about the family's goats My only real complaint is the and they all lived happily ever after ending which seem out of place in a vampire novel
