5.0 out of 5 stars dead on marvellous, 26 Dec. 2007
This review is from: The Accidental Vampire (Mass Market Paperback)
Elvi went on a fun-in-the-sun vacation to Mexico. Instead of drinks with funny umbrellas, she found herself being the main drink for a vampire! What a drag, especially when maker did a drink 'n run, leaving poor Elvi struggling to deal with her new vamp state. For five years Elvi has toddled through her new situation, dealing with the downside of being undead. There are a few perks, such as not ageing, but still, being a vamp should come with a "how to be a vamp and survive" book, she thinks.

Victor Argeneau (finally we get Victor's tale!) has lived alone for centuries, having lost his beloved to vampire hunters. Since then, his sole focus has been hunting down rogue vampires to eliminate them, so no other innocent vamps are slaughtered for their misdeeds. His attention is drawn to Elvi when her friends place a want ad for a male vamp, matchmaking the objective. Victor isn't sure it's a real vamp or someone just playing a joke, so he goes to check it out. He is shocked to learn the whole town is aware that Elvi is a vampire, but more importantly, Elvi is real and just what his heart craves. However the vampire council dedicated to keep a low profile for the good vamps, sees this situation as something that cannot go on.

Lynsay Sands takes a chance giving us not young and beautiful vamps, but older ones, and the risk is endearing, once again keep this series fresh and original. The problem with any series, is to conjure that vital spark that made it special to begin with. Each time, Sands does just that.

Fans will be very happy campers as another Angeneau tale comes in January and February, giving you three in a row.

I have to agree. The vampire that turned her was hanging upside down unconscious and blood dripped into her mouth. He didn't bite her at all - in this series that doesn't turn people.
