The Reformed Vampire Support Group

Catherine Jinks


$17.00 U.S. (Hardcover)

Synopsis by Barnes and Noble:

Think vampires are romantic, sexy, and powerful? Think again. Vampires are dead. And unless they want to end up staked, they have to give up fanging people, admit their addiction, join a support group, and reform themselves.Nina Harrison, fanged at fifteen and still living with her mother, hates the Reformed Vampire Support Group meetings every Tuesday night. Even if she does appreciate Dave, who was in a punk band when he was alive, nothing exciting ever happens. That is, until one of group members is mysteriously destroyed by a silver bullet. With Nina (determined to prove that vamps aren't useless or weak) and Dave (secretly in love with Nina) at the helm, the misfit vampires soon band together to track down the hunter, save a werewolf, and keep the world safe from the likes of themselves.The perfect anecdote to slick vampire novels, this murder-mystery comedy of errors will thrill fans of Evil Genius.

My Thoughts:

I was really excited when I bought this book. I figured it would be another fun, exciting vampire book. I was wrong. This book was not very exciting, I had a hard time keeping focus while reading it. The Vampires in this book were very different than the ones found in Twilight and Evernight. The vampires were sickly and boring. They seemed to constantly have the flu and were only awake during the day. I had a hard time with the characters because there were so many of them it often became hard to keep track of who was who. The plot also left room for the imagination. Not a whole lot went on, because the vampires were only doing things during the evening. I was disappointed by this book. It was not as good as I would have hoped.


Someone who wants to read about vampires but not the heroic ones.
