Be careful what you pray for. I merely asked to live a long healthy life and hinted that I wouldn't mind starting over while keeping the knowledge I had accumulated in my 58 years. And if a better body and less wrinkles were involved, I certainly wouldn't complain. Well, I'm here to tell you, God does listen… to everything… and he's got quite a freaking sense of humor. I'm the undead proof.

Parts of this book were good, parts were kind of terrible. It was funny, first of all. The other magical creatures were great, the new vamps getting their information from paperbacks was really entertaining. The idea of,the story was pretty decent, but the execution felt recycled. Based on the books the ladies used to learn about Vampires, the author and I obviously have similar reading habits and it showed. I won't say that other books were copied in the writing of this one, but I'm seen a lot of scenarios and situations before. The fairie, in particular, was almost an exact match to Jenks, from Kim Harrison's Hollows books.

The new vampires were a major drawback to this book. Susan is the only really decent one of the bunch. Nanna is an over-sexed crazy person, Joann is loud and obnoxious, Zaire is a black lesbian with a chip on her shoulder the size of Texas and wants to fight everyone, all the time. Resi isn't the worst, but often encourages Zaire, making annoying situations even worse. Jeni, started out as obnoxious as the rest of them, but tempered throughout the book and became almost the voice of reason.

I would like to find out more about the other immortals. Christopher's back story and why everyone seems to leave him alone would be particularly interesting. I could do without hearing much about the new vampires in future books though.

Susan is a middle aged snoop with a youtube blog. When she hears a smart alecky kid back talking his caretaker in the bathroom stall, she decides to record it on her phone. Problem is, he is not a kid and he has decided to have a snack, one thing leads to another and Susan ends up back at the family home where she resides with 3 generations of her family, all female. When they get a look at the perks of being a vampire, such as perky breasts and the body of a 25 year old, they begin to think that having to drink blood might not be so bad. Add the fact that they didn't respond to the "Vampire Welcome Pack" in a timely manner now they are in trouble with the council..

Although I found a few editing mistakes (a couple actually threw me out of the story), do not let that keep you from reading this hilarious take, satire? on the new vampire genre. In this story you have the Grandma, otherwise known as Mom, Nanna or Chick, who resembled Sophia from Golden Girls. Susan and JoAnne, sisters with very different outlooks and behaviors.

I found the family dynamics fun and fairly familiar. The council guys were intimidating and adorable at the same time.

In this you will find vampires, a werewolf, a fairy, a troll and a few other things that aren't supposed to exist.

I HIGHLY recommend this funny fangy frolic.

All Susan wants is to get her phone over the bathroom stall wall so she can record the woman fighting with her seriously bratty child and post it on her website. One awkward fall later, and she lands herself in a mess of trouble. Becoming a vampire wasn't quite what she meant she prayed for a more youthful body. To make things even worse, when her vain family members get a look at her new body they can't wait to get a piece for themselves.

I mentioned in yesterday's post how much I enjoyed the humor in The Grateful Undead: They're so Vein. It was over-the-top humor in many ways with crazy antics and characters that never seemed to stop, but there was also a deeper humor that stemmed from the idea of what a person might willingly give up in exchange for youthful bodies and immortality. The non-stop comedy bred a certain amount of chaos in the book. At times the chaos slowed the story down when outrageous arguments lasted a little too long or strayed away from the main story, but for the most part the humor kept the story moving at a swift pace. It was hard to ever predict where the story was going, but I felt certain that whatever popped up next was going to have me laughing.

The story itself was enjoyable. It was light, and flowed along with the laughs. I was expecting a little bit more complicated plot at first, but really, how serious and deep can you get with vampire raccoons and pint-sized century-old vampires? This was more of a situation comedy. There aren't intricate plot twists or overly complex designs. The characters are over the top as well, but each one has a unique personality. The odd dynamic of the family only increases that craziness and fun. The characters are definitely memorable. The majority of this book was dialog between the characters - largely arguments that were funny - but there were times when the dialog could have been broken up more often to give readers a break from the intensity of the characters.

Despite being a very funny book, there are some aspects that may turn readers off. There is a decent amount of profanity throughout the book. There are multiple sexual references and several sexual scenes - one of which got quite graphic. Two of the characters are homosexual, and there relationship is discussed throughout the book. If you're a reader that doesn't care to read these types of things, this book is not for you, as they are found through the majority of the book. Because of these, this book does earn a spot on my "No way would I let my teenage nieces read this" book list.

This book is a fun, quick read that's great for when you need a break from all the serious day to day stress.

Would I recommend this book? With caution, mainly because of the amount of language, sex, and homosexuality. It is a very funny book, and while some readers will have no problem with these, others will. If you want comedy and don't mind the adults themes, you'll really enjoy this book. If you don't want to read those sorts of themes, this book is not for you.

Who would I recommend this book to? Vampire enthusiasts won't find the brooding and serious vamps they might be expecting, but I think vampire lovers and those who never really jumped on the Twilight bandwagon can enjoy Stec's vampires. Comedy readers will love it. It's definitely one for adults, though. I think chick lit readers will enjoy this as well as those who are in the stage of wishing their cute and perky days weren't so far behind them. Teens and those looking for cleaner comedy may want to choose something else.

Definitely a really interesting read. Being in the wrong place at the wrong time this woman was attacked and turned into a vampire. Who then ends up turning her whole family. And they try to learn how to survive by cheesy novels. When they were summoned by the head people of the vampire world they didn't immediately answer because they didn't know so they end up in a lot of trouble. I loved that the one woman accidentally bit and made a vampire raccoon. Who proceeds to make a animal vampire army. Can't wait to read the next book!
