The Care and Feeding of Stray Vampires - Molly Harper

I was in the mood for something fun and quirky, and The Care and Feeding of Stray Vampires seems to fit the bill nicely. It reminds me of the Sookie Stackhouse Series (a.k.a True Blood), except that Iris, the Heroine of this story, is much more likable than Sookie. At least so far. The world-building is similar in that vampires have "come out" to society and live among the humans in this world, much like in Sookie's world.


It's still early, but so far I'm really liking it. I loved this:


"A sunburned vampire was not a pretty sight. Every vamp had a different level of reaction. There was a rumor floating around that it was like a personality test. If a vampire's skin engulfed quickly, he or she had a passionate nature. A slow, smoldering burn indicated a more controlled character. Personally, I thought it was mean to sit around and look for signals in the smoke while someone was on fire."


Tee hee.
