Real Vampires Don't Sparkle (Real Vampires Don't Sparkle #1) by Amy Fecteau Review

Title: Real Vampires Don't Sparkle
Series: Real Vampires Don't Sparkle, Book 1
Author: Amy Fecteau
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Pages: 386
Price: $4.99
Thoughts: Not your daughter's vampire novel.

Book Synopsis:

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.


Don't get me wrong. Twilight is one of my favorite books of all time, but still I couldn't resist this novel. Real Vampires Don't Sparkle is less about vampire perfection and more about the vampires we used to know - the ones that were to be feared rather than adored. While the book is about a man running for his life from certain evil, it also contains quite a bit of humor. More importantly though, this isn't a one-trick pony. While today's vampire novels have come to be solely about romance, this book will make you feel more than you have from a vampire novel in a long, long time.
