Publisher's Summary

At the edge of chaos, one geek stands tall.

Five years ago, dateless dork Bill Ryder somehow saved the world, banishing magic and monsters to the shadows. He thought it was over, that he was finished with that life. Too bad for him, shit’s about to get surreal again.

Now the impossible has happened. His goddaughter is conjuring fireballs from thin air and two vampires have shown up at his doorstep looking to kick his ass.

A crazed group of ex-wizards are hell-bent on forcing the door between worlds open, intent on letting the nightmares back in, and only Bill and his friends stand in their way.

Join him in this hilarious tale of a world teetering on the brink of anarchy and the unlikely hero who’s not afraid to look the madness in the eye and flip it both fingers.

love Bill's world

There's definitely not a boring moment. I love the narration. Ed's voice sounds different in this one. Love the new characters and Tom's new predicament.

Awesome!

A big fan of this series. I was thrilled to find out that Bill was coming back and that Christopher John Fetherolf would once again bring Bill and his friends to life! Rick Gualtieri delivers an excellent adventure returning us to Bill's world!!

Just what I've been waiting for! More Bill!

I had no idea this was in the works. I finished the Tome of Bill series a few years ago and loved it! I was just looking at other works by my favorite authors and found a new Bill the vampire series! Please keep them coming!

I think you should read the Tome of Bill series first before this one so you'll know the characters but either way its a great new addition to the Bill the vampire universe. Highly recommended!

Did not disappoint!

When the Tome of Bill series ended, I was disappointed. Not in the series but that I wanted more like an addict looking for his next fix. When Strange Days released, i wasn’t sure how the story was going to be continued knowing how the previous setup ended. I was not disappointed, keep up the good work Rick!

<br />Welcome Back, Bill!

I'd forgotten how much I enjoy these characters and their antics. A great listen, and I'm excited to find out where the story goes from here.

Exposition... exposition... exposition!

This ENTIRE book is nothing but setup from the beginning to end. Sure there's some action in it but this is ALL about the story and explanation.

Then again, it HAS to be.

Bill was OVER, the world was saved. The dead were dead and everyone else was human again. Then Gualtieri needed beer money and knew we'd jump right back into Bill and his world. Recapturing the chemistry of the original means some things needed to be restored and some things needed to get better and that required... about 10 hours of explanation. So, you have "Strange Days."

I'm really looking forward to the plot moving forward from here and see how my favorite characters come to terms with the things that have been done to and for them.

You can be sure that I'll save AT LEAST one more Audible Credit for the next one.
