Sometimes I get bored with the urban fantasy genre especially with the usual kick butt heroines with major attitudes so it's refreshing to read a book by a male author. It's totally different. This book features a male vampire who is an absolute pig. He treats women like dirt, sees them as sex objects, can't help but think from below the waist, he's not good with feelings and is a total car crash...but it's just so funny. You will laugh out loud in places. It's a contemporary novel about a vamp called Eric who gets it so wrong most of the time, he shows no remorse in certain situations but doesn't care, he has both short term and long term memory loss but, buried really very deep inside he does have a a little bit of heart. Sometimes. He cannot remember how he was turned or why he killed a master vampire the previous night and for some reason a nasty werewolf pack keep trying to kill him. The story is written from two view points, Eric's and his newly turned airhead girlfriend Tabitha and while you might find it hard to like these two, the secondary characters are really interesting especially the changeling Talbot and Eric's psychotic daughter Greta.

A great read with a grissly, violent plot. The story of Eric is intriguing as he tries to gradually piece together his past whilst reconciling mistakes he has made with those he has pushed away. Of course...Eric is very powerful but surprisingly he just doesn't care about it or becoming a major player, he questions it but is quite happy to just get on with running his strip club and feeding from hot chicks with big breasts. Unfortunately for him, he has to start getting it together. I gave the book 4 stars rather than five because in some situations the characters are just so stupid and can't see what's in front of them but I'm hoping this will improve in the next book.

The 'urban fantasy' genre seems to be written mostly by women for teenage girls - there's always a vampire, often a werewolf or two, a skimpy plot and endless waffle about 'feelings' and 'relationships', whatever they are. But if 'Twilight' made you reach for something to be sick into (it certainly did with me), you might want to try Staked.

Eric, the protagonist, is not like the vampires in the rest of the genre. He's not romantic, he's not interested in woman's feelings (except when he's hurting them - he rather enjoys that), and he's not conflicted about killing. In fact, he just loves killing, and it's a pretty gory book. Eric is, in short, a complete monster.

It's also a very funny book. Eric keeps having blackouts and wakes up surrounded by body parts. He's forgetful (having been embalmed by his best friend), callous and cruel, and only makes a go of his strip club because he's surrounded, for reasons that will be made clear, by people who love him, need him, or are just plain entertained by him. He has a son he can't be bothered to slaughter, a daughter with an eating disorder (she likes eating twins), and an ex-girlfriend/mother figure who is now in her sixties. Not all of them survive, by the way, and it's a hoot seeing who Eric will dispose of next.

Not for the squeamish, definitely not for you if you are looking for a romance, but otherwise highly recommended.
