There are reasons we fear the night. He isn't one of them.
Bill Ryder was a dateless dweeb...then he died. Unfortunately for him that was just the beginning of his troubles. He awoke to find himself a vampire, one of the legendary predators of the night. Unfortunately for him, he was still at the bottom of the food chain.
Now he finds himself surrounded by creatures stronger, deadlier and a whole lot cooler than he is. Worst yet, they all want him dead...permanently this time.
Bill isn't exactly average, though. A vampire like him hasn't been seen in centuries. He's got a few tricks up his sleeve, unlikely allies, and an attitude problem that makes him too damn obnoxious to quit.
Join him in this hilarious tale of monsters, mayhem, and the unlikely hero who's not afraid to tell them all off...even if it gets his teeth kicked in.

Yes. YES! This was super fun! I love nerdy, pervy Bill; he reminded me of some of the guys I grew up with , actually. Always thinking skeevy thoughts, but he's actually pretty decent in his actions. I LOVE that he's a dork, that he's not a super model, and that he realizes this. It just made him more relatable for me. I loved the smart assy banter back and forth between the main core characters, and I would totally hang out with them.
The writing, I loved. I laughed out loud more than once, especially when Bill was speaking to the reader and cracking jokes. I know that some people don't like that style, but it helped me get more entrenched in the book. There was a particular part where he said something and I, being a dirty minded old lady, started giggling to myself, only to then have him say wait no, not like that, and I cackled out loud, which scared my kids since they didn’t know what was going on! Obviously I’m a mature adult.
The narrator is great. He used proper emphasis, which I could see going VERY wrong, considering the style of the story-telling, but he nailed it. He was a smart alec when he needed to be, and the dude even did the sound effects. Heck yes! I look forward to hearing more from him.
I would definitely suggest this to those who like raunchy, nerdy, vampire stories. As in, go read and/or listen to this!
