Publisher's Summary

Jim McDoniel's debut novel, An Unattractive Vampire, is a darkly comic urban fantasy of ancient horrors in suburban cities.

After three centuries trapped underground, thousand-year-old Yulric Bile, also known as The Cursed One, The Devil's Apprentice, He Who Worships the Slumbering Horrors, awakens only to find that no one believes he is a vampire. Apparently he's just too ugly. Modern vampires, he soon discovers, are pretty, weak, and, most disturbing of all, good. Determined to reestablish his bloodstained reign, Yulric sets out to correct this disgusting turn of events or, at the very least, murder the person responsible.

With the help of part-vampire wannabe Amanda; Simon, the eight-year-old reincarnation of his greatest foe; and a cadre of ancient and ugly horrors, Yulric prepares to battle the glamorous undead. But who will win the right to determine, once and for all, what it truly means to be a vampire?

What the Critics Say

"Jim McDoniel's first novel is quirky, wild, and weird, and definitely for those who hate those sexy vampire stereotypes who like their monsters nice and gross." (Geeks of Doom)

    "Blood, Guts and lots of laughs!"
    Where does An Unattractive Vampire rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    out of all the books i have read or listened to i cant really put it in a solid rank but with 4.5 being the best i have had the pleasure of reading this would come in at a solid 4.1, the blood and gore with an evil protagonist that gets to see the modern era for the first time had me laughing and staying glued to my book, this is a book that's easy to get lost in and finish in one night.


    What other book might you compare An Unattractive Vampire to and why?

    if i had to pick one it would be Emperor Mollusk Versus The Sinister Brain, the dark overtones and casual violence while keeping you firmly on the side of evil throughout with constant humor and silly situations, i know that they have stories that are vastly different but i feel a similar tone from them.


    Have you listened to any of Drew Campbell’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    this is the first time i have had the chance to hear Drew Campbell as a voice actor, he does a wonderful job bringing the characters alive, his voice for Yulric Bile is now on my list for favorite evil overlords haha.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    no, also if there was the scene would be to specific to point to without spoilers.


    Any additional comments?

    An Unattractive Vampire is a great book, i had a blast reading it and for all the time i have been on audible this is the first time i have posted a review to maybe get that one more person to give this book a try, here is hoping we have many more great books to come from Jim McDoniel, a fresh and talented voice in a genre filled with books we often feel we have already seen time and time again.

    "Amazing!"

    A fun, fresh and satirical look at the difference of perception of vampires from blood thirsty monsters of nightmare to glittery tragic antiheros. If you're the type of person to root for the villains than this book is definitely for you.

    "funny and entertaining"

    This book was delightfully witty and easy to finish. It's a light "read," but those are often the best audio books. Funny, not very predictable, and original.

    "hysterical story hobbled by performance"

    the story itself is wonderfully written, but the narrator hurts the retelling with odd pauses and breaks in his speech.

    "Super weird narrator"

    He enunciates the wrong words- almost like a non native speaker, which he certainly is. It's extremely strange. For instance he says "SODA pop" where "pop" is kind of an after thought. So weird. I love the story, though! It's hilarious and real and fun so I will be purchasing a hard copy to read in my own voice.

    "Refreshing!!!"

    An old fashioned vampire in an age of modern vampires. i like it a lot. I hope that this is just the beginning of a new series. It reminds me of the old Hammer vampire movies which I grew up with. Please give us more. Something more to sink our teeth into.
    As far as the audiobook. it is a very easy listen. The narrator is able to give each character his or her own unique voice. One of the best narrations I have ever listened to.
