Publisher's Summary

There are reasons we fear the night. He isn't one of them.

Bill Ryder was a dateless dweeb...then he died. Unfortunately for him that was just the beginning of his troubles. He awoke to find himself a vampire, one of the legendary predators of the night. Unfortunately for him, he was still at the bottom of the food chain.

Now he finds himself surrounded by creatures stronger, deadlier and a whole lot cooler than he is. Worst yet, they all want him dead...permanently this time.

Bill isn't exactly average, though. A vampire like him hasn't been seen in centuries. He's got a few tricks up his sleeve, unlikely allies, and an attitude problem that makes him too damn obnoxious to quit.

Join him in this hilarious tale of monsters, mayhem, and the unlikely hero who's not afraid to tell them all off...even if it gets his teeth kicked in.

    ""Bitch!...""

    The book was great! Right amount of swearing, geekiness, and sarcasm. Love the fact that it's like a middle finger to that Twilight crap. Can wait to start book two! By the way, don't do that thing where you contemplate getting this one. I did that for months, coming up with excuses why I shouldn't get it. Just get it! You won't be disappointed.

    Story
    "Getting tired of eating these words."

    I used up all my good vampiric mixed analogies, and jokes in the last review of a vampire novel where I mentioned that I'd sworn off reading any more of these. Then Drew Hayes, the guy who wrote the last vampire novel started a podcast with Rick Gualtieri among it's participants. Now, I'm reviewing another vampire novel.

    It shouldn't still be possible to write vampire stories that I want to read, but Rick does it. Over and over again too. Bill is amusing, mortifying, and outrageous in turns. I found him highly relatable from the very beginning with his complaints about horrible rap music, to his gaming, D&D books, psychotic DM, and weirdo roommates.

    Bill is great original vampire tale, the beginning of a series that I adore, and it's well told. I can't recommend it enough. I only dinged it one star on performance because the narrator failed to pronounce the author's name correctly, and I needed an excuse to point it out. He get's it right starting in book 4 or 5.

    "Funny, slightly crude humor"

    Though it was nothing like my usual taste, I must admit I laughed out loud at times. I enjoyed the story and would read another book if this is a series. it made me smile.

    "This book is absolutely fantastic if you are an 18 year old boy"

    It was fun to listen to if I completely forgot that i actually had any maturity. Those folk who saw DEADPOOL more than once will go nuts over this series. Don't Get me wrong it wasn't a bad story. It was freakin funny at times. The narrator was spot on. But it was a bit juvenile for me to purchase the next book.

    I am an avid lover of books and stories. Audible has provided a great outlet for me to read when otherwise I couldn't. I love dogs.

    "Solidly Not Disappointing"
    What did you love best about Bill the Vampire?

    The geek factor was well integrated into the story, reminiscent of Blood Sucking Fiends, overall good book


    What other book might you compare Bill the Vampire to and why?

    Gee, let me think, Blood Sucking Fiends comes to mind.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Him getting mugged.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    The Big Fang Theory


    Any additional comments?

    Much better book than it could have been, not a bad effort at all, good enough I'm buying the sequel

    "Comedy is Scary"

    Do not piss off nerds from Queens! So what if you are an all powerful creature of the night, it just doesn't impress.

    "Hilarious, and Perfect narration."

    This book is really funny, and the reader is absolutely perfect. Highly recommended for anyone not looking for a typical stupid vampire story.
