    Abby is dedicated to turning herself into a vampire. Her boyfriend Steve is researching a serum to turn the un-dead back into mortals. Chet, an enormous vampire cat, is busy turning the strays of San Francisco into vampire kittens. And vampire lovers Jody and Tommy are imprisoned in a bronze statue... In this unpredictable, blood-sucking and thrillingly paranormal San Francisco, a love story unfolds that has real warmth and bite.

    Story
    (77)

    If his rotter of an estranged father hadn't gone and dropped dead at a karaoke night, Fat Charlie Nancy would still be blissfully unaware that his dad was Anansi the spider god. He would also have no idea that he has a brother (called Spider) who is also a god. And now this brother is trying to take over his life, and is generally doing a much better job of being him.

  • Dracula [Cherry Hill Edition]

    Story
    (10)

    Although myths about vampires had existed since ancient times, Bram Stoker's Dracula is considered by many to be the work that launched the vampire into the human lexicon, and is undoubtedly the most popular and well-known vampire story ever written. Stoker's inspirations for Count Dracula are heavily debated, but most agree that Dracula was based in part on the historical figure of Vlad the Impaler, a fifteenth-century Romanian ruler known for his indiscriminate brutality, which included a taste for impaling people alive on wooden spikes and watching them die in slow agony.

    Lisa says: "Pay the price for a better narrator"
    "This story is a classic for a good reason"

    Story

    This story is fantastic. Part detective novel, part fantasy.
    The narator was great. The voices really suited the characters, particularily the professor.
    The audio was not quite perfect, a few time 5 seconds was repeated.

    I definitely enjoyed this book.
