This is going to be a two-part review as the first book is more of a novelette.
Vince Hammond is a vampire slayer - but not just any type of vampire slayer (yes, there are more than one kind) he's a vampire slayer from an ancient order of vampire slayers - a thorough-bred vamp slayer, if you will.
The only problem is, he's been turned into a vampire himself.
Which is a problem since he has to now figure out how to balance his vampiric tendencies with his vampire-slaying legacy - and keep his vampire slaying mom from finding out.
But just how is he going to do this when his vampire-slaying fiance (that he didn't know he had) and all her family show up to raise hell?
I purchased Pulling Up Stakes by Peter David for $.99 and I'm glad I did.
The story was funny, fast-paced and entertaining - the major complaint I had was that it stopped abruptly in the middle.
I promptly purchased Pulling Up Stakes 2 for $2.99 and completed the story.
Pulling Up Stakes 2 continues with Vince Hammond's chaotic situation as he scrambles to try and protect his vampire-slaying fiance - while attempting to keep her family from discovering his true nature as he hunts down vampires who are up to no good.
But hunting vampires when you are a vampire is tricky business if you don't want the humans in your immediate surrounding knowing that you're a vampire too.
Will he be able to hide his nature effectively while wooing his unwanted fiance? Or is all hell going to blow up in his face?
Both stories were funny, lively, and the action never stopped.
I enjoyed both stories, but the funny thing about reading this series was that I didn't realize I had read this author before until reading his book listings at the end of his book.
I've had the pleasure of reading his traditionally published book The Woad to Wuin and enjoyed his dry brand of humor there as well.
I'll be sure to look out for the next book in the Vampire series: Raising Stakes.
