    Too Many Creatures and a Story That Just Doesn't Cut it

    While I loved Gischler's other recent book, Go-Go Girls of the Apocoplypse, I was very disappointed with this one. Gischler spins this tale in a comedic style kind of like the humor in the movies American Werewolf in London or Fright Night. The problem with this book is that he tried to cram too many creatures (werewolves, golems, zombies, vampires, ghosts, witches) and tried too hard to be outrageous that the story itself seemed to suffer.

    Allen is a college student who is assigned to work on a Kafka project with Professor Evergreen over the summer in Prague. At the party before he encounters Cassandra (who is obviously a vampire), Evergreen's wife who enchants him. Meanwhile, one of the party goers has his head torn from his body in an apparent animal attack. Allen also encounters the mysterious Father Paul, who gives him a gift of an expensive silver cross (huh cross for vampires, silver werewolves, yeah that's it).

    The story jumps back and forth to Europe where a Golem is sent to attack someone and rips his head off (again?). This part of the story is narrated by the ghost of an alchemist from the 1500's (he understands modern English?).

    When Allen gets to Prague he is kidnapped by a trio of witches and shot at by a machine gun toting Father Paul (how did he get there? Seems he is a member of some sort of commando Jesuit priest group). Allen then becomes the person everyone is interested in because he seems to be in the middle of a war to obtain a powerful stone. Allen has to deal with one of the witches, his semi-girlfriend (who has her own secret) and Cassandra.

    Sounds confusing? It is. The biggest saving grace to the book is that it was a fairly quick read.
