What is a vampire to do when his vampire lover decides to become an 'ex-vampire' by joining Vampires Anonymous? Turn to the local pretty-boys for help? Or destroy the group that has taken his lover from him?

Qvamp says:

Silly, but that seems to be what it's aiming for. Very light-hearted. Andrew, the main character of the story was first written of in 'Somewhere in the Night'. This book won the Lambda award.

I recommend this book if you like light-hearted gay vampire fare.

Overall Rating: B     Queer vampire Rating: B+    

Overall the book held my interest and the plot moved quickly. I loved the way Andrew referred to himself in the 'third person' and had a lot of witty one-liners.

On the downside, it was difficult to distinguish if Andrew was going to be the hero or the victim. The end of the book was a bit dry and ended abruptly and kind of leaves you hanging. However, the author (Jeffrey McMahan) left a lot of openings for a sequel, and I would definitely read a sequel of the adventures of Andrew and his unlife.
