This book was mentioned on Barnes & Nobles paranormal forum and I regret not picking up this book months ago. Eric is a violent vampire who has rage-blackouts and often wakes up knee deep in someone else's blood and has no idea when or how he killed them. Sex and easy blood is no problem, since he's the owner of a strip club in Void City. Life is not entirely easy for Eric though. He has women problems (mainly too many of them are related), tainted blood problems, psychopathic children, allergic to the sun (no matter how many times he catches fire), his favorite Mustang was just destroyed by the pack of weres out to kill him and to top it all off, he can't remember most of the last 40years much less the day before. My opinion on this book is it has a perfect amount of creativity, humor, gore, sex, violence and mystery. This book is a nice change from the semi-tough, romantic-focused books most of the female authors put out. I loved the dark-edge and gritty feel this book has. I have been craving an authentically dark urban fantasy and this book delivers. I look forward to Revamped in March 2009 and highly recommend this book.

J. F. Lewis' novel Staked is an edgy look at modern vampires that are not tragic and tortured character but horrific monsters and proud of it. Set in modern times the first book in the series is uniquely told from two different points of view throughout. Readers meet Eric, arguably Void City's meanest vampire, as he tells us about his monstrous life as a vampire and strip club owner. The other character that tells the story from her point of view is a newly made vampire named Tabitha. Together they are thrown into a war with werewolves and other vampires in the city.

This novel is a must read for horror and vampire fans. Though the first few chapters are roughly written, the bulk of the novel shows a strongly developed writing style that introduces unique additions to the vampire mythos including a disturbing transformation of a human into a vampire.

Watch out when Eric turns into the Uber Vampire and be sure to read the squeal Revamped!
