Being undead sucks. Literally.
Just ask C. Thomas Flood. Waking up after a fantastic night unlike anything he's ever experienced, he discovers that his girlfriend, Jody, is a vampire. And surprise! Now he's one, too. For some couples, the whole biting-and-blood thing would have been a deal breaker. But Tommy and Jody are in love, and they vow to work through their issues.
But word has it that the vampire who initially nibbled on Jody wasn't supposed to be recruiting. Even worse, Tommy's erstwhile turkey-bowling pals are out to get him, at the urging of a blue-dyed Las Vegas call girl named (duh) Blue.
And that really sucks.
Finished the sequel to Bloodsucking Fiends in one day (adding the 30 minutes spent reading the first 50 page the other day before realizing it was a sequel and the time spent yesterday reading the rest of the book). Very enjoyable followup to a great, funny, and awkward vampire love story.
The plot and characters got more complicated with the addition of a blue hooker (yes you read that right), two Goth teens, and a homeless man and his cat. Sounds absolutely crazy, but it really does make sense with the story.
Moore is a genius when it comes to great dialogue. Funny, sincere, and yet still sarcastic all rolled into one. His Abby Normal (teen Goth) journal entries: freaking amazing! Laughed out loud at so many parts. The people at Firefly probably thought I was crazy. Oh well, that's pretty on par for me.
Worst part: a cliffhanger ending
Best part: a new book in the series was published and I got it from the library... Hopefully there's an ending to Jody and C. Thomas Flood's love story. I would hate to leave them encased in bronze (oops, spoiler alert)
