Blurb: Felix is a vampire – a fierce creature of the night who strikes terror into the hearts of everyone unlucky enough to become his prey. Or at least, that’s what he thought was true, until he met John. John is completely unimpressed with Felix, much to his dismay. Felix becomes fixated on proving his ferocity to John – and when that doesn’t work, he strives to make any impression on him at all.

John is a witch, and as all witches know, vampires are notoriously stupid creatures who only have the power to hurt those who fear them. Besides, he’s under a curse much more frightening than any vampire. Felix’s desperate attempts to impress him annoy John at first, but gradually, they become sort of endearing. Because of his curse, John has pushed everyone in his life away. But Felix can’t be hurt, so there’s no harm in letting him hang around.

Felix is technically dead. John has nothing left to live for. But together, they might have a shot at life.

This dark and witty vampire romance for adults is complete at 100,000 words, with no cliffhanger. Despite some dark twists and turns, it ends with a solid HEA.



I admit, I almost put this one down because the narration for Felix, the vampire, was just not what I was expecting. However, John, the witch, was just so real to me that I decided to go with it. And what an amazing story this turned out to be, too. Michael T Bradley is a new narrator to me and I was looking for something paranormal, something different, and I got exactly that. At first, Felix comes across as a fumbling lunatic, and John is just annoyed at the mentally ill acting vampire. But, all is not what you expect, and Michael T Bradley took me on an adventure I didn’t expect and I ended up loving this audio.
This story takes so many twists and turns, and just when you think you’ve grasped what’s happening, it twists again. Honestly, I am unsure how to even tag this one. Its funny, it’s sad, it’s scary, it’s historical at times, it’s magical, and it’s lovely, too. And for a narrator to bring all that to life and keep the reader invested is just pure brilliance. Loved it after almost writing it off. That says something.
Overall Impression: I really liked it

*I received a copy of this book from the author in return for a fair and honest review.*
