Following on from Blood Sucking Fiends, I found myself reading this. We go back to Jody and Tommy, now both vampires on the run in San Francisco. In the previous book, they promised the Police that Jody and her Vampire maker would leave town, but Tommy has them both bronzed. Jody turns to mist and escapes, and turns Tommy so they can be together.
What ensues is chaotic hilarity, Tommy trying to find a minion to help them throughout the day, and picking an emo-gothic girl and her gay friend, who in turn help to narrate the story; feeding off a fat shaven cat; the animals from the store turning against Tommy to help their blue skinned prostitute friend… I could go on, but I don’t want to ruin it for you!
Weird, wonderful and hilarious, not the best Christopher Moore book I have read, but that does not make it a bad book by a long stretch – it was a hard to put down, funny read. The characters are extremely likeable, and I can’t wait to pick up the last in the series.
Next book: The Manhattan Projects 2: THEY RULE by Jonathan Hickman, Nick Pitarra, Jordie Bellaire, Rus Wooton
