Any time you are talking vampires and humor, there is a good chance you are talking about a Katie MacAlister book. MUCH ADO ABOUT VAMPIRES, the ninth in MacAlister’s Dark Ones books is supernatural bungling, past lives and a walk on the dark side all wrapped up in one demonic comedy.
Cora’s husband left her for another woman and her sister up and married a vampire. Cora’s life hasn’t been going very well when she decides to join a few girlfriends in a little past life regression hypnotherapy and ends up banished to the Akasha where she finds herself a tool of Bael, a demon lord. Now everyone is looking to get their hands on Cora. Then she finds herself saving the life of a vampire she has seen draining a woman with an ox cart and despite her aversion to vampires, she just might be this vampire’s mate from a prior life.
Katie MacAlister’s MUCH ADO ABOUT VAMPIRES is a kooky vampire love story told from first and third person points of view. The main characters spend most of the story running from demons and other bad guys who want to gain control of Cora and the power that comes from being a tool of Bael while Cora comes to terms with the fact that she might just be a mate to a vampire that she saves while wandering the Akasha. Of course he thinks she saved him in order to torment him. And so the story goes.
As with so many MacAlister stories, the characters are quirky and bizarre happenings are around every corner. MUCH ADO ABOUT VAMPIRES is yet another in the often humorous, always amusing and endearing MacAlister vampire books. Readers looking for a little light and entertaining story with a bit of bite to it are sure to be enthralled.
This is an objective review and not an endorsement of this book.
