Okay, I’m going to be honest here… I bought this from a clearance bin because this author has the same name as my husband. LOL. It has been sitting on my shelf for years but it fits into a reading challenge. I made myself finally open it up.
I haven’t read anything by this author and had no idea what to expect going in. I just knew that it was about Vampires. I also didn’t know that it was second in a series but I didn’t feel lost at all. It does a great job of recapping what happened in the first book.
This is about a vampire, Jody, who turns her love slave, “minion” into a vampire. Basically, it’s about him figuring out his new vampire life and them running from a bunch of people. Another “minion” (human to do their day chores) is chosen and this is where things kind of get crazy for me.
The narrative is switched up with her recounts in a diary. She wildly exaggerates and her language is just way too disturbing for me. See the problem is, it confuses on me on what is actually happening and what she has made up in mind. Sometimes you get what happened from another persons point of view and sometimes you don’t. It just felt really sloppy to me.
It’s a quick read and I got through rather quickly. The story is quite interesting. There is a lot of humor and I found it funny. There’s a part in this book, about Jody and an elderly man, and it’s actually quite beautiful.
I didn’t hate this book but I didn’t love it. I liked it enough to finish it rather quickly. I will not be picking up anything by this author. I don’t think his writing style is quite my thing.
Sorry to my husband, who was hoping this was a masterpiece, since it has his name on it. 😀
