Let’s see, a vampire who can’t kill people, a secret creepy government agency who runs the vampire and there was something else, but I forgot it already.  Oh yeah, some creepy Army guys are putting together Frankstein soldiers out of dead body parts.

So I learned that you should always rip off Joss Whedon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Serenity, Dollhouse and where have you been?) when you can, that the American public thirsts (yeah, I’m bad) for vampire stories and the publishers are desperate for well-written books.

This one was pretty well written, not chock full of bad dialog and cliches (yes I’m talking about you Stephen King and your buddy Clive Cussler, too) although not particularly inspiring, but the author never lets you get inside anyone’s heart – not the vampire, and not the guy who is supposed to be his “watcher.”  Jeesh another rip off.  At least they didn’t have the Amazon girl.


I read this book a year ago and I can’t remember one thing about it.  That’s not good, is it?
