Vampire Vic by Harris Gray Book Review

Vampire Vic banner

Vampire VicABOUT VAMPIRE VIC

Would you give up donuts…for blood? Fat, balding accountant Victor Thetherson hoped becoming a vampire would turn his life around. But Victor can’t stomach confrontation and gets queasy at the sight of blood. Instead he gets it from the blood bank, diluted in bloody Bloody Marys. The result: a vampire who doesn’t bite, and a man who gets no respect. Victor’s slacking staff mockingly calls him Vampire Vic. Victor’s boss amuses his wife by intimidating Victor on video. His ex makes him stay out late while she entertains boyfriends in the house she insists they continue to share. One night it finally boils over, and Victor bites someone. And then another…and very soon, he’s no longer visiting the blood bank. Muscle replaces fat, and his comb-forward widow’s peak takes root. Victor basks in newfound attention and respect, at the office and at home. But real vampires get hunted, and as the transformation reaches the tipping point, Victor must decide how much he’s willing to sacrifice for the power of the vampire.

Review:

If you are like me, you are sick of the 'sparkly' vampires, the vampires young and old girls alike swoon over and wouldn't have any problem spending time with, and even consider becoming one of them. Thankfully, Vampire Vic was not at all one of those books. Victor Thetherson is a laughing stock when it comes to vampires. His staff makes fun of him and his wife cheats on him while making him stay outside of his own house. And Victor takes it..at least for a little bit. But, like many of us he reaches his breaking point and one day he does what vampires were made to do - he bites someone. And that's when his life changes.

No longer the laughing stock, he is now a muscular vampire who people respect. With their unique take on vampires, authors Harris Gray have taken this story to a new level. Whether you believe in vampires or not (and who am I to say they don't exist) you can either personally relate to the plight of Victor's tale, or know someone who is like Victor. And who among us wouldn't want to gain the respect of our peers and show them we aren't who they thought we were. But, at what cost?

A fabulous book and one I would highly recommend. Even if you think you are sick of vampires, please do yourself a favor and read this book. The writing style is unique and intriguing, and something I am sure you will enjoy.

ABOUT HARRIS GRAY

Harris Gray finish their third pint and mull over their next writing project, simultaneously deciding on a vampire book. Because the women in their lives eat up every vampire story on the shelves. And for the gratuitous T&A. But hunky, smoldering vampires are beyond their grasp; and dammit, T&A should mean something. Deciding to write what they know, Harris Gray return to their wheelhouse: An aging, uncomfortable man, not so happy with his lot in life. A man bitten by a vampire, unsure what to do with his new…skillset. Vampire Vic – VV – is born. Perfect. The latest book is Vampire Vic.
