There's vampire romance fiction, and then there's vampire horror, and then there's something in between. Amy Leigh Strickland has tip toe'd the balance between a suspenseful thriller and a romantic story. What starts out as a fun romp quickly turns into an exciting and addictive page turner, keeping the reader guled to the page as the story unfolds.

With realistic and believable characters and a twisting, turning plot, Kissing Corpses provides what a lot of Vampire Fiction misses: the idea that a

Recommends it for: Twilight haters. Oh wait, that's more than half the planet
Kissing Corpses started as a horrifyingly boring book. It kept being uneventful for almost 40% of the story, and I have to admit that I was close to DNF-ing it. But then something unexpected happened. Amy Leigh Strickland barred her teeth and showed us her hatred towards vamps.

Yes, this is totally a vamp hating book. If you love these naughty night creatures, if you have fantasies about banging them and joining them in death, then beware! This book will tear your dreams apart.

This story doesn't follow the current vampire/human-romantic-relationship pattern. In fact, it is stated by the author that she "wanted to write a book that was the anti-Twilight." Hence the name, I think, because vampires are shown from the other point of view, as corpses.
I'm not going to write about what happens throughout the story, because it's been already explained, so here is what I think of the book.

As a vampire literature enthusiast, I appreciate that Mrs. Strickland shows vampires as t
"Kissing Corpses" is definitely a five-star novella. From start to finish, Strickland keeps you on the edge of your seat. She has you looking left when all of a sudden, you realize you should have been looking right! Strickland weaves a tale of romance, suspense, action, drama, and a bit of wry comedy with clever characters that make you want to read more.
What starts out as a romance between a human and a vampire takes a dark, unexpected turn (although, if you know anything about vampire lore, i

A great take on what happens when you fool around with the undead. Sure, you've been (lately) conditioned to think that he'll be all Edward and sparkle at you. Or maybe he's an Angel with a tortured soul. But what if he's a little stalker-y? What is the years of loneliness have made him a little clingy? This is a solid, clear-headed approach to vampire anti-romance.
This was definitely not your typical vampire story. And that's all I'm going to say about this book. LOL
I have to say that I almost did not finish this book. The first 40% of the book was full of unimportant details and descriptions that really took away from the story. The flow was very jerky and there are several grammatical/typographical errors throughout the book that are minor, but still annoying. It read like a cheesy vampire romance that I was not really interested in reading. The only reason that I kept reading, quite honestly, was because of the 2 reviews on Goodreads that claim the story ...more
