    EXCLUSIVELY AVAILABLE IN AUDIONo one else has Dan Wells’ hilarious new novella - it’s not available in print, in ebook, by mobile phone text or Victorian phonograph. Audible is bringing it to you exclusively, for a limited time.The basic premise is this: it's 1817, and a man named Frederick Whithers is wallowing in jail for a crime he didn't commit, desperate to get out so he can go and commit it for real.

    Bruce Allred says: "A tale of vampires, money, mishap and great minds"
    "Uproarious!"

    Story

    This book is a perfect antidote to the plague of brooding, seductive and powerful vampire romances infesting the shelves. The vampires, far from being a menace, are inept and brainless. Fortunately for our hapless "hero", so is the vampire hunter and just about everyone else caught up in this farce. Frederick , never the less, doggedly slogs through vampires and vampire hunters while dodging his murderous and untrustworthy but lovely partner in crime as they race to steal an inheritance. He does so with a single minded determination helped- or hindered- by the poet John Keats and a rather bloody minded Mary Shelly.

    A fun read and a good performance

    Waking up in a tacky coffin and wearing off-brand shoes, Betsy Taylor can't believe the horrible turn her life has taken; then she discovers she's a vampire. Soon, Betsy becomes a participant in a power struggle between the forces of darkness. With only her friend Jessica and the hunky vampire Sinclair to help her, this new "Queen of Vampires" will have a tough time getting her afterlife straight.

    Book Professor says: "Such a fun book!"
    "Dead and obnoxious"
    Overall

    I just can't recommend this book. I found Betsy to be one of the most annoying characters I've ever come across in a book. She's ignorant, shallow, whiny and SHE'S the heroine! The rest of the characters were two dimensional stereotypes and the author apparently thinks that no one will know the difference between sarcasm and wit. She's probably right about that.
