4.0 out of 5 stars A different take on the vampire myth... 9 Jun 2009
By Jenny, Wondrous Reads TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
This book is quirky, cool and unusual. It's an original new take on the vampire myth, and includes a whole host of funny, unconventional members of the undead.

Nina, joined by Sanford, Dave, Horace, Gladys and Bridget, all attend reformed vampires meetings, which are run by human priest Father Ramon. The meetings help them deal with vampire life, as well as any issues they had when they were human. I thought this was a brilliant idea, and I would have loved to have read more about the meetings. Can you imagine a self-help group for vampires? I couldn't, but I can now!

What I liked most about Reformed Vampires was the new vampire mythology introduced. These vampires experience fanging (biting), blooding (first taste of human blood), living off guinea pigs, appearing as dead during the day, and feeling ill. These are all new ideas that I haven't come across before, and I love it when authors mix up the normal vampire conventions. With so much vamp fiction out there, it's nice to have a change. Catherine Jinks also writes many vampire pop-culture references, and mentions my two favourite things: Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Stephenie Meyer. Believe me, she had my undivided attention as soon as I read those words!

Each character was well written and engaging, and I'd like to be friends with all of them. The humour inlcuded in the dialogue and narrative was fantastic, especially Nina's thoughts and first person account of events. I felt sorry for her at first, but as she gradually embraced her life as a vampire, so did I. Also, Bridget, an 82-year-old knitting vampire with bad hips, has one of the funniest character descriptions I've ever read. I'm still laughing about that one!

4.0 out of 5 stars Courtesy of Teens Read Too 3 Sep 2009
By TeensReadToo TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
Forget everything you knew about vampires. They are not sexy, stylish, rich, or powerful.

Nina has been a 15-year-old since 1973 when she was first turned into a vampire. Now she attends vampire support group meetings with her fellow vamps, who are sickly and living off the blood of guinea pigs. It's not a fancy life at all!

Nina's life is boring (although she does use her experience as a vampire to write vampire fiction). So when Casimir, the vampire who originally turned members of the group, is found staked in his apartment, Nina's life is about to be an adventure. The killer knows who and what they are, so The Reformed Vampire Support Group sets off to save themselves and finds a dangerous journey along the way.

This is not your typical vampire story. These vampires are grumpy, cranky, and not glamorous at all. But that's what makes them fun.

There were a lot of characters to keep track of in the beginning and the plot started off sort of slow, but keep with it and you will have a delightful and funny mystery.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great read 14 Sep 2009
Format:Paperback
I agree with the other reviewers. This book is fun and quirky with a nice deadpan sense of humour. A new take on the genre that works well.
