Abby is dedicated to turning herself into a vampire. Her boyfriend Steve is researching a serum to turn the undead back into mortals. Chet ? an enormous vampire cat ? is busy turning the stray cats of San Francisco into vampiric kitties. And vampire lovers Jody and Tommy are imprisoned in a bronze statue and have to try to escape ...In the unpredictable, blood-sucking, thrillingly paranormal San Francisco Christopher Moore has created, a love story unfolds that has real warmth and bite.
The third book in Chris’ Vampire Trilogy and of the two that I’ve read the best. Picking up where the previous title pretty much left off (well five weeks later) the key protagonist in this title is Abby Normal (yep Mel Brooks Young Frankenstein joke right there) who as minion and emergency Countess of the City Bay area to the city’s two Bronzed Vampires seeks to survive a humdrum existence as well as battling Vampire Kitties. Its definitely fun and returns to Chris’ earlier humour that I felt was missing from the previous book (You Suck.)
Add to this some great cameo’s from the supporting cast, some wonderful twists backed with some cunningly crafted turns and the reader has a treat in store, especially if you’re seeking something a little different to a lot of the Vamp fiction out there.
