Vampyre Blood: Eight Pints of Trouble
We are all familiar with the story of Count Dracula and his life. However, were you aware that Count Dracula played a mean violin? It is true…he was a member of a rock band called The Techno Zombies. Ok, so the only reason Count Dracula joined was because he needed a way to get to America. The Count promised Igor that he would travel to America and find a way to become good again.
Bradley Harrington Chester III is a rising attorney. He was out having dinner with his wife. Things were good until Bradley is the victim in a hit and run accident. As Bradley lies on the side of the road dying; Count Dracula comes by and makes Bradley an offer he can’t refuse. In exchange for saving Bradley’s life, Bradley has to help the Count. Bradley agrees. Though Bradley is now under the control of the Count. Bradley has eight pints of the vampire’s blood running through his veins.
I thought this book had some pretty hilarious moments. Vampyre Blood: Eight Pints of Trouble is not your typical vampire novel. I liked this though. This book is more on the lighter side. The best part is that it is an original and not a mash up of a classic. Count Dracula had some personality. It was kind of like Bradley and Count Dracula switched roles. Bradley was the bad guy and Count Dracula was the good guy, trying to get by the best he could. This is one quick read. If you are looking for something different to read, then you might try Vampyre Blood: Eight Pints of Trouble.
