What a fantastic series! I devoured this very addictive omnibus in a single self-indulgent sitting. PRICE deftly SPINS stories full of humour, gore, suspense and sex. She even wades - ever so cynically - into the muddy waters of romance.
Michael and Wild Bill are a perfect pairing. Both leads are carefully nuanced and wonderfully charismatic. I loved the way the perspective bounced between Michael and Wild Bill from book to book. Both unique voices come to life beautifully. Price adds depth
to her men subtly and carefully with a touch of caustic humour. Her men might wear eyeliner, but they definitely don’t sparkle.
This is a very sexy read. Price has a wickedly dirty imagination and her vampires EXIST in a state of permanent arousal. The result? A never-ending string of implausible (yet very hot) encounters in the most unlikely places.
And the cover art. I sort of zoned out staring at the cover of Vertigo, and I just might have been drooling by the time I got to the cover of Mannequin.
Highly RECOMMENDED.

I was given this in return for an honest review by Inked Rainbow Reads.

I choose to read this book because it was out of my normal pick range. I'm SORRY to say it just wasn't my type of book. But I'm not letting that fact stop me from giving an honest review. The writing was very descriptive and the story flowed very well. It was a fast paced plot, a little gruesome at times. But it was a vampire thriller so I did expect some of that. At times I was confused whose POV I was reading.
The journey that Michael and Wild Bill take you on is incredibly unusual. Michael is out for revenge and falls for Wild Bill, who seems kinda laid back. They go on a trip to kill vampires that are killing people.

These first five stories follow the adventures of Michael, goth and would-be vampire hunter, who is seeking revenge for the death of his friend, Scary Mary. In his pursuit of ‘bad vampires’ he meets and falls for Wild Bill and in the process discovers much of his previous beliefs about vampires are unfounded. He also learns the best ways to dispatch these creatures of the night.

The smitten pair share many erotic scenes that are not just sex for sex sake and their affection for each other is demonstrated outside of the bedroom, bathroom, forest floor, picnic bench, van… during their nomadic-like journey.

The series is well written and a very enjoyable read. JCP builds up a melancholic atmosphere in her writing, creating a believable yet dark fantasy world. She has you guessing what’s going to happen next throughout—will Michael be safe in his new chosen lifestyle and will Wild Bill resist draining the young man of his lifeblood?

Michael and Wild Bill’s story is told from alternating points of view as the series unfolds, so we get to see inside the mind of the vampire as well as the young vampire hunter, and as the story progresses, we find out a little more of their backstory and who these character are.

While not as deep as other books by JCP, this series is easily devoured in a day or two. Good for a long train ride or a weekend on the beach. For people who like their vampires to actually bite.

5.0 out of 5 stars Step aside Stephanie Meyers and make way for JC Price. 12 July 2010
By Aryael de Kaprii - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Edward and Bella who? It's all about Bill and Michael!!! This book was fantastic from beginning to end; I couldnt put it down. The powerful sexual relationship, the story was well written, it moved along nicely. It was entertaining and intelligent. The way Ms. Castillo related vampirism to AIDS was not only original but very well done. It was romantic and eerie at the sametime with this seemingly clumsy unsure "vampire hunter", actually getting the job done. I thought Michael was adorable -a very loveable character that really makes the reader want to know what's next. I loved this book so much, I hate to criticize but, I must say that I would have liked to have seen more actual Vampire slaying going on. I understand how weird killing vampires got with the relationship between the two characters, but at the sametime, it would have been cool, if Michael had done some more, serious bad blood-sucker butt kicking. Either way, the book was great and I look forward to reading more of Jordan Castillo Price's work. Next book for me will be Hemovore and I will work backwards from there.
Does anyone know if there are any more books with Michael and Bill, The book I bought is Channeling Morpheus Series Book 1, which comes with the five parts from Payback to Rebirth. Is there another book or set of books that goes beyond Rebirth?

5.0 out of 5 stars First of a series, - I hope 11 Jan. 2010
By Terry S - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am a fan of the PsyCop series, and expected something similar.
This book is interesting, has good character development, and should spin off an interesting and varied series, if the author can keep exploring this new area - to wit, vampires, and goth type would be vampire killers.

I would recommend this book to anyone who is a fan of Josh Lanyon, the PsyCop series, or interested in Paranormal events and their possibilities.Channeling Morpheus for Scary Mary this book is much better edited than many published in the m/m genre, and is well written, so you can follow the story line without getting annoyed!

Spoilers Ahead

JCP has such a good ear for dialog and a way of describing things that just sings. She also creates really amazing characters. This is a collection of short stories about Wild Bill and Michael, an unlikely set of lovers, who have lots of destructive impulses and need a way to successfully channel them (okay, in the first short story they kill someone - a very bad someone, but still, that's no basis for a relationship...) Michael wants to continue hunting and killing vampires but gradually starts to see shades of grey is his previous black and white view of the vampire world. Fun, smart, very sexual, highly recommend. And if you haven't read her Psychop series - Secrets (PsyCop) it's a treasure!

5.0 out of 5 stars a gritty, sexy tale from one of my favorit authors 19 Sept. 2009
By Diane - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Channeling Morpheus is funny, gory, sexy and irreverent. I highly recommend giving it a try, especially if you like m/m (man-to-man) erotica mixed with (somewhat mild) horror. I also recommend you check out the PsycCop series by the same author - it is inspired paranormal storytelling.

5.0 out of 5 stars JCP's Channeling Morpheus series is a dark and sexy urban fantasy... 24 Mar. 2015
By L. Horan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
The paranormal sub-genre (vampires/werewolves/shapeshifters) has been done to death over the course of the past several years, which is why it took me so long to get around to reading this series for the first time, back in 2012. I’ve been a long time fan of JCP’s PsyCop books. In fact, Victor and Jacob are right at the top of my list of all-time favorite fictional couples, so it wasn’t anything other than my own paranormal burnout that kept me from digging into Michael and Wild Bill’s world. After all, how many permutations of the vampire mythos can there be, really? Bram Stoker introduced Dracula to popular culture over a hundred years ago, and authors have since been re-creating the mythology and giving it new twists to keep things fresh, and expanding on all the metaphors for sex. But even still, there’s only so much that can be made new from an old concept.

Or so I thought.

Jordan Castillo Price has put her unique stamp on some of the old tropes, keeping some concepts in tact while debunking others, to give Wild Bill and the rest of her vamps an original and uber-erotic spin in the centrifuge, definitively separating them from the herd. There’s no need for metaphors for sex in this series, because the sex is entirely literal and incredibly seductive.

Michael and Wild Bill are two halves of the same whole, in an entirely symbiotic relationship that survives, thrives, and has become a physical and emotional imperative that connects them in spite of the fact they sometimes practice an open relationship. They are distinct yet entwined by something deeper than love. They’re bonded by blood and a metaphysical link that makes it impossible to think of one without the other. They’re yin/yang and it works perfectly within the circles in which they move.

This is one of those series I can see myself reading over and over again. Why? What makes some books immanently re-readable? For me, it’s something that all my favorite authors do better than others: dialogue. It isn’t enough to simply tell a story. What is essential for me is to “listen” to the characters and the way they speak, the way they relate to each other, the way they interact and react to each other. That’s not to say plot is unimportant; it is. But becoming emotionally invested in what’s happening in the lives of the characters is the ultimate payoff.

And I feel like I hit the jackpot with Michael and Wild Bill.
