Nobody expects to get turned into a vampire, especially a guy like Bob. Everybody hopes that if they somehow get transformed into a vampire, they will instantly become some kind of superhero vampire out of the movies. Bad news guys: not gonna happen. More likely than not, you’re gonna be one of the poor clueless bastards hanging out on Thursday nights with Bob in his vampire support group.

You may think you know what being a vampire is supposed to be like, but Bob is here to set you straight. He’s made it his personal mission to get answers about the reality of being a vampire. He’s been shot, stabbed, thrown off rooftops, survived bad coffee and endured crippling boredom – all in the name of answering the eternal question of what it means to be a vampire.

If you think you might be a vampire, this is the book for you.

My Review

Book provided by the author in return for an honest review

Bob is a terrible vampire, he’s just not very good at it, and to top it all off, he has an addictive personality. His boss at the porn shop objects to him disappearing for days at a time, too. He blunders around making enemies of everyone, and finally sets up a support group for useless vampires, the rejects and accidentals. In a small room over the porn shop. It’s more of a book club, and sometimes they try to get hammered together, but alcohol doesn’t really work on vampires.

Be prepared to have everything you thought you knew about vampires turned on its head. Bob is here to get the truth.

I enjoyed this book. I liked the plot and the character development, and I had a giggle at Bob constantly upsetting everyone. Beatrice is nuts, but probably the best character after Bob. There’s swear, sex and drugs, and a bit of violence, but all in the best possible comic taste.

4/5 – For fans of urban fantasy that are bored with the usual stuff.

Hi I'm Rosemarie and I like to write. I write short stories and longer fiction, poetry and occasionally articles. I'm working on quite a few things at the minute and wouldn't mind one day actually getting published in print.
