Real Vampires Don't Sparkle

Real Vampire Don’t Sparkle by Amy Fecteau


Truth be told, this went on the “did not finish” pile.  I was bored to death with hopes of sparkling myself with this book.  It started out slow and drug and drug and drug, until I just couldn’t take anymore.  I can’t give an overview because of course I put this book down at 45%.  Here goes my account, Matheus gets killed by Quin and hates being a vampire.  He gripes and complains about being turned, will not take Quin’s help or money.  Then he grips and complains some more.  I’m sorry if I wanted to hear complaining I wouldn’t be reading a book, I would be listening to my kids fight and complain.  Sorry this was just not the book for me.


Matheus Taylor didn’t ask to be murdered.

To be fair, the percentage of people actually asking to be murdered is probably small enough to be safely ignored, but he felt it was worth stating regardless.

His life might have been ordinary, but it was his life and he wasn’t done with it yet. Quin didn’t care. A seventeen-hundred old Roman, Quintus Livius Saturnius had a different view of morality than most people. Killing Matheus and hijacking his undead existence seemed perfectly acceptable to him.

Now, Matheus spends his nights running for his life, questioning his sexual orientation, and defying a mysterious new threat to the vampires within his city. Not that he set out to do any defying; he just wanted to be left alone.

Unfortunately, that was never going to happen.
