In this collection of three fan-favorite stories, the vampires of Sandy Hollow crave the summer months.
Summer means plenty of beach tourists…and plenty of fresh blood after months of deprivation. But this year the Eternal Ones have decided to spice things up with a little bet: The first to seduce a hot date of the human variety, and then turn him into a fellow creature of the night, wins. In order to successfully turn their prey, they must take only three small sips of blood on three different nights. If they take too much blood on any night, the human will die and the bet will be lost.
The setup sounds simple enough, but things quickly get complicated—especially since each vampire is just dying to quench her thirst Your Cart items Cart total. Buy from another retailer.
This is one of the best vampire stories I have read in awhile. Forget about twilight there was humor and a little lust. Some crazy kids and hunters. I wish that it did not end so abruptly those which is a trademark it seems from J. Feb 08, Joanne Moyer rated it liked it Shelves: The Vampire Club was not what I expected from either of these authors, but that doesn't mean it wasn't enjoyable.
Be prepared for a bit of cheese in this story of Andy and his fellow Vampire Club members, but it's a fun cheese. Jun 26, Ipeh Alena rated it liked it Shelves: Lucu juga sih pas baca ini, sampe ada jurusan yang mempelajari tentang Vampir. Dan cuma ada di Western Virginia University doang.
Bahkan pengajarnya pun seorang Profesor yang merupakan keturunan dari Ed Royche seorang Vampire Hunter yang setelahnya dibunuh juga oleh Vampir.
Tujuan mereka adalah mencari keberadaan para Vampir. Apakah mereka masih ada di dunia ini atau tidak. Sumber yang mereka dapat cukup banyak. Dari buku-buku sekelas Bram Stocker sampai Twilight pun dibaca. Terus artikel-artikel Lucu juga sih pas baca ini, sampe ada jurusan yang mempelajari tentang Vampir. Terus artikel-artikel sampai catatan yang tersimpan di perpustakaan. Mahasiswanya pun tidak banyak, cuma ada 5 orang yang tertarik dengan keberadaan Vampir. Mereka bahkan cenderung mengagumi kehebatan Vampir yang memiliki kemampuan yang unik. Kalau ditanya, klimaknya dimana?
Yaitu saat mereka berhadapan dengan VVV. May 05, Christine Rice rated it really liked it Shelves: Rain is a funny, suspenseful, entertaining read. If you like vampires, you will love this book. If you enjoy how humor can lighten a serious subject, you will enjoy this book. It is the only vampire-type major in the country. The ultimate purpose of the club is to prove the existence of vampires. Andy finds an old newspaper article that sounds eerily like a vampire sighting and killing. They just need to find a place to stay near the burial grounds, which are in a different state. The Vampire Club gets a new member who volunteers to let them all stay with his cousins who live near the burial site.
After they arrive, nothing goes as planned. There is a conspiracy, a romantic conflict, and a risky adventure all wrapped into one, as the club attempts to carry out its plans. This book will not disappoint. The story gets better and better the further you read. The characters are lively, and passionate about vampires and each other.
I recommend this book to readers of suspense and paranormal who also enjoy a bit of humor. Dec 01, Mary rated it liked it. I am embarrassed to say that this had been sitting on my TBR list for a very long time. I finally read it, mainly because the two authors are two of my favorite, and also great guys. The book was a good book but not the greatest from these authors.
It was cute, quirky, a little goofy, and maybe a little scary maybe. I do love the way these guys dialogue and the storyline was a good idea. It was just a little too silly for my taste. This group is led by an old professor who pulls strings to fund their trip to find out if a man killed years ago may be a vampire, lying in his coffin, just waiting to be brought back to his vampiric life. But when they get there, they end up dealing with an ages-old secret organization intent on the extinction of vampires.
Again, it was a good book and the ending was left open-ended, supposedly for sequels, but it looks like this will be the only book in the series. I would have read more because it intrigued me enough to want to know what happened to the characters and what direction they were headed at the end of the book. These are great authors but this was not their greatest work.
Not bad, not great, but okay. Mar 30, Rebecca Graf rated it really liked it. A group of college students are obsessed with vampires. They firmly believe they exist. In fact, they are majoring in vampires in the one college that offers such courses.
Stumbling upon an article from centuries earlier, they embark on a journey to find a real vampire in a comatose state and revive him. But they stumble upon a group sworn to ridding the world of all vampires. Now they have to save their own lives and that of a long sleeping vampire. Yes, the storyline sounds a little out there. It has to be. So you have to get beyond that to enjoy the story.
What I loved the most was the humor. I even had to read a few sections out loud as I laughed. The story was entertaining and kept me on my toes. I never could assume what was going to happen next especially with such interesting characters. If you are looking for an entertaining and unusual vampire story, give this one a try. I received this book during free download days on Amazon without any expectation of a positive review. Aug 09, Ashley rated it liked it. Opening this novel, I was preparing myself for the vampire version of the Babysitter's club, as the title promised.
In that regard, I wasn't disappointed.
The book opens on a group of college students majoring in Vampire Studies, with the only interest of finding the existence of vampires. I thought that this premise was an interesting one, and I hadn't read before any books about a club finding the existence of vampires before, so I kept reading. The book continued in a pleasant way, the storyl Opening this novel, I was preparing myself for the vampire version of the Babysitter's club, as the title promised.
The book continued in a pleasant way, the storyline was engaging and the characters amusing, but for me there were definitely a few issues.
The author uses the word "for" a lot--"for this reason," "for that was why" There is a time and a place for the word for, and it's not in every other sentence. Also, when the ending occured, I don't like the way the main character approached it. It was the culmination of his goal--and yet he felt condemned? I know that a drastic change like that can alter a person's perspective, but that seemed a little extreme.
If you want a good read, though, with an amusing plotline and a twist on your traditional vampire novel, this one's for you! Sep 15, Shirley rated it really liked it. Just a word of warning. This book proves that neither J. The rest of the books in this collection have a touch of humor but not to this extent. It was actually a pretty entertaining read and a nice break from the usual paranormal fare. Oct 16, Toni rated it really liked it. One of the reviews I read on The Vampire Club described this book as having "sophomoric humor" and didn't find it entertaining. Sorry, reader, but that is called satiric literature, it is written as a complete and total spoof on vampire fans.
All the vampire fans who want to read this book had better be prepared to laugh at themselves. I found it very entertaining and laugh-out-loud funny. I wouldn't call it an enthralling suspense; but I would applaud it as a wonderful spoof. The authors must h One of the reviews I read on The Vampire Club described this book as having "sophomoric humor" and didn't find it entertaining. The authors must have spent some time thinking up all the outlandish metaphors used. Reading this book was a nice break from the suspenseful books.
My only concern is that the ending could have been better. However, it was all J. Apr 07, Amanda rated it did not like it. I know what this book was trying to do, I wanted to like this, but I just didn't. I really love Scott Nicholson as an author but I just did not find this funny.
This may well just be me, as a rule I don't find things funny that are supposed to be funny if you know what I mean. Humour aside, I just did not give a damn about any of the characters, nor did I find the plot interesting. I really don't lie giving bad reviews, but I do believe in being honest, and I'm afraid that for me, this book di I know what this book was trying to do, I wanted to like this, but I just didn't.
I really don't lie giving bad reviews, but I do believe in being honest, and I'm afraid that for me, this book did not have any redeeming features. Such a disappointment in comparison to Nicholson's other novels. Feb 28, Sheridan Lee rated it it was amazing. Comedy in the vein of Mel Brooks or Monty Python! Satiric literature at its best! Poking fun of fans who might take themselves too seriously. Thank goodness he did. This book is perfect when you need a good hard laugh. I laughed so hard I dropped my precious Kindle.
Thank God for Otterbox! Hopefully, we'll see more of this in the future. Thanks for the laughs gentlemen. Apr 30, Sonic Alpha rated it liked it Shelves: I had high hopes for this book, having read previous titles by both J. Sadly, The Vampire Club fell a little short of meeting those expectations.
While it has some interesting concepts, and thought provoking questions in regards to an immortal life, its cringeworthy dialogue and narration leaves a lot to be desired. May 15, Yue rated it liked it Shelves: It was not a WOW book, but I liked it. There were many funny parts when I found myself laughing out loud.
The Vampire Club Lyrics: Well the moon was full and the color of blood / The night the pirates came to the Vampire Club / Their leader was tall and snide and. The Hollywood Vampires was a celebrity drinking club formed by Alice Cooper in the s. The hazing to get into the club was to outdrink all the members.
Andy is a very funny character. The end was a little abrupt: Aug 12, Robert Williamson rated it really liked it. Easy to read and pretty interesting. I enjoyed it very much, a good book about a club wanting to find a vampire and then become a vampire. Had some funny moment along with a few serious ones. This was an ok time filler - nothing special but not bad at all. I'm not really a fan of Vampire literature unless it's Ray Garton or Stephen King's "Salems Lot" but this was an interesting and light-hearted romp with a bit of light humour thrown into the mix.
Jul 27, Blaise rated it really liked it Shelves: This doesn't feel as strongly like a Scott Nicholson book, but it is still good. Sometimes a little too over the top. Oct 05, Melanti marked it as abandoned Shelves: I usually like Scott Nicholson, but this is so campy that I give up. It's just not my type of humor. Jul 03, Nick Wilson rated it really liked it.
