Publisher's Summary

"Why do I have to have moral issues with killing someone? I feel like such a hypocrite! It's worse than a vegetarian touting organically grown steaks." (Eric, physics teacher, involuntary vampire, and part-time demon slayer)
Eric didn't ask to be a vampire. In fact he didn't even believe in them. Biting your own tongue with your fangs does a lot of convincing. Even so, being a part-time undead isn't as easy as you might think. It can let you hold down a day job, true, but sometimes the night "life" can be more than a little difficult, what with those bloodthirsty urges and predatory instincts kicking in. Luckily for Eric he can rely on his trusty steed and her unwavering support, his flaming sword and its sarcastic wit, and his own snarky sense of humor.

What an opener!

I'm a fan of Sean Runnette's readings and this seemed like an interesting plot line so I started it. This is a truly a miners ice story, with refreshing twists on previously imagined ideas and characters you care about. Superbly read, thoroughly enjoyed, and waiting for the next!!!

Bravo!!!!!

a jaunty listen

What the editor's blurb doesn't say is that this is also fantasy plus magic.

Eric does the usual turn-into-a-vampire-wrestle-with-fact-that-now-undead-monster-of-night thing.....and I started out by thinking it was going to be just another version of the same old tale, but then it all kicks off and he ends up chasing the bad guys through a portal into another world.....where there's a well thought out magic system, plus a good amount of sword fighting, knights and armour etc etc and slaying of bad guys etc etc Yes, you can pick holes in the plot, and some of the morality, but on the whole, it's a decent enough listen if you're looking for entertainment.

The tone is relatively jaunty, and Sean Runnette's narration and timing is great. There are some slower sections, and some padding which a ruthless editor might have culled, but it never bored me completely, and I was content to let it unfold in its own time. And I quite like the character Eric.

It does end rather abruptly, requiring one to immediately download the next instalment to find out what happens next.

A reasonable way to spend a credit - especially if you have a long commute and need a bit of an epic to keep you entertained.
