Who knew I could LOVE a vampire book I have to be honest right off the bat. I don’t normally like vampire books. They usually give me the creeps. But when the author asked me to review a copy of the book, how could I refuse when I had enjoyed one of her other books so much. Much to my surprise, I enjoyed this book immensely, even with the whole “biting of the neck” thing. I think it was because it was initially funny and slightly slapsticky, so it eased me into the world of vampires slowly after I had started to care for Felix and his sister. Once the darker side of the story emerged – and it does emerge - I was heavily invested in both of the main characters as well a couple of the significant secondary ones. I thoroughly enjoyed the world building and the folklore around witches, vampires, and curses and how that played out through the plot. John is a witch who is under a centuries-old curse that has darkened his life, making him unable to hope and plan for a normal future. When John is come upon late one night by Felix, a somewhat simple and naïve vampire, he is unimpressed and totally unafraid of the vampire. (I LOVED Felix!) That causes some consternation on Felix’s part, and he can’t seem to get John off his mind. He begins to stalk John in a bumbling and innocent manner, and John puts him to what he thinks will be an impossible test, knowing the attention span of a “normal” vampire. But Felix surprises him, coming through with the test, and it results in their first date and kiss. It awakens something in John that he hadn’t felt in years, and it changes Felix in a way that he didn’t think he was capable of. Their lives are complicated with even more than just the curse hanging over John’s head when Felix’s brother-in-law becomes aware of their connection, and it’s here where a ribbon of evil starts to be woven throughout the book. From that point on, the lightheartedness of the beginning is replaced with what for me was nail-biting intensity, as John and Felix worked with their friends to thwart the manipulations and evils that were tightening around them. The only niggle I had with the book was the climatic ending, feeling somewhat let down after all the twists and turns the four central characters had to go through. Part of me was expecting another fateful twist. But, even with that, it was definitely a 4.5 star book for me.
