Sinossi

Sick of vampire books? Movies? TV shows?

Yeah. So are we.

Sick of the entire unlife of vampires?

Yeah. So is Vince Hammond.

Unfortunately, Vince is in it up to his (wait for it) neck. Because Vince is a young vampire hunter who lives with his vampire hunter mother in an entire community of vampire hunters, who in turn are part of a cult of vampire hunters going back all the way to the French Revolution, which many believe to be an uprising of the poor against the rich but was actually a massive purging of vampires from the French nobility (hence the guillotine; way more efficient than shoving stakes into their hearts.)

And here's Vince's major problem: he's a vampire. But he dare not "come out of the coffin," as it were, and reveal his true nature, because his mother will literally kill him. And if she doesn't manage it, she has lots of friends and neighbors to help make sure that happens.

So instead Vince has to keep his head down and hunt his own kind while making sure not to actually kill them since, for the most part, vampires are law-abiding citizens who drink from eagerly volunteering "Wanna V's" hoping for their own shot at the night life. But when some out-of-town hunters show up with a very personal connection to Vince, his two worlds are going to collide in a way that may wind up forcing Vince to run for the hills...assuming he can get far enough away before Mom hunts him down.

3.0 su 5 stelle cliché love story partnered with a self-aware version of vampire mythos 24 febbraio 2016
Di S. Carter - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
Half a book, but worth the buy.

I initially purchased this book knowing it was $0.99 and light-hearted. I had read my fair share of vampire novels and knew this likely wasn't going to be anything ground-breaking. What I found was a typical, cliché love story partnered with a self-aware version of vampire mythos. The flipped concept with the main character wasn't anything entirely new, having previously read Christopher Moore's "Bloodsucking Fiends" series.

I quickly finished the book, not knowing it was (indeed as many reviews state) not a complete book. I was really disappointed to have to go back to Amazon and purchase the continuation, but was happy to do so just for the price. I didn't think I would like the book's direction because of the predictability and semi-mature writing style... but I found myself wanting to know the conclusion, and being eager to shell out the money to do so.
4.0 su 5 stelle For anyone seeking revenge on Twilight, this is your book 19 dicembre 2014

For anyone seeking revenge on Twilight, this is your book. It's fast, it's funny, and it's fun.

Negative? Took much going on that's obvious sequel bait. And I'm tired of removing any religious weapons against vampires. Joss Whedon's an atheist, and even he used holy water. Peter David gets points for using flash bangs against vampires, but that doesn't make up for it.

I expect better when I read his "Artful."

Peter David has written some great tongue and cheek works, but I found this one only mildly interesting. It ends abruptly, so it really needs part 2.

I also personally have a bit of a problem in these kinds of books when being a vampire is strictly better then being a human; the whole "the legends got it wrong, faith doesn't work, and most of us are pretty sympathetic nice people trying to eek out a living" just doesn't jive well with me - admittedly, there are plenty of jerk vampires too, but the real underlying issue seems to be the dual problems of society being unlikely to accept them, and hunters blindly wanting to kill them. I suppose they also can't eat normal food, are vulnerable to silver [which only the vamps know].... but they can have animal blood [though it's considered gross], are super fast, strong, and durable [though it feels suggested that enough raw damage -might- kill them], have mild hypnotic powers, and retain all the memories of being human. t just seems silly to claim that coming back from the dead is pseudo-scientific when it seems clearly magical, and then ignoring the other magical legends.

the story gained my interest, though it was also awkward, towards the end - before the abrupt ending, but I just don't know if I have enough sympathy for the main character to continue. I feel tis basic story has been done a lot better in similar works

4.0 su 5 stelle Fun setup, but not fully self-contained 13 settembre 2013
Di D. Whiteside - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
The book is fun and paints a fun picture of an interesting world. The characters are interesting and the stakes - excuse my language, as one character quips after saying the word - are compelling. The only complaint I have is its sudden and jarring stop in the middle of the action. That's fine from a price standpoint - there was certainly $1 worth of entertainment in here and I was happy to go and buy the second half. But from a flow point its really off-putting, and I cannot imagine how much rage I would have felt if I'd bought the $10+ paperback version of this half-novella.

View it as a two-part purchase of a single item and you'll be much happier.

Di Moon Cat - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

Vampire in the closet, Vince is hiding in plain sight. His Mom is a slayer, his Dad was a slayer, his friends are all slayers. This isn't good. It gets worse when he finds out that he was betrothed as a child to the daughter of a traditional Aryan Slayer family.

Throughout the dangers and traumatic encounters, Vince's dry comments and humorous asides keep you chuckling. Very sensible discussions about vampire abilities are included. The part about mirrors is worth the book alone. Be aware that the book cuts off with a 100+ pages and you will have to buy the next book to conclude (I think). Should be worth it to find out how Vince gets out of this mess. Hopefully he won't make a miss stake. (Opps, he he he)
