I received this book in exchange for an honest review.

Now, at the beginning of DEAD Faint, I was really confused. I felt like I was thrown into this world with little explanation. I mean, all of a sudden I had three vampire characters who were all connected, seemed to know what was going on while I was clueless, etc. I felt like I missed a book or something. Then, when I found out that this is actually book two of the series, it made sense. This isn't the type of series where each book is pretty

Dead Faint is a fast and furiously fun paranormal romance. The story made me grin and I adored the heroine Billie Joyce, a self confessed hillbilly, with a big heart and very colorful language. Billie Joyce meets with trouble when she takes a shortcut down a dark alley in New York and asks the angel she sees as she's dying to help her. Dovey, her rescuer, saves her by changing her into a vampire and Billie Joyce's reaction is classic.

Having not read the first part of the Dead series, I wasn't sure if this series of short stories was going to be something I was really going to be interested in. But here it is October so I said to myself, "Sure, let's give a vampire series a go! You've had a long enough rest from the undead supernatural world! Tis the season and all that!" Story one had me from the follo

This book is as good as the first one, almost. I loved the comedy in it, and loved the return of Dovey and Aaron , as well as Daniel and Rat. I liked that Danil became less stuffy in this book. It did get on my nerves a bit on how hillbilly sounding BJ was. (Bi

When I was offered to read and review this series I was elated! Well…I was too late to read book 1 but I jumped at the chance to read book 2, Dead Faint. O.M.G. This series is hilarious! I now have the first book. (Highly recommended)

If you are looking for a completely different twist on the whole vampire genre, this series is for you. Its laugh out loud funny, sexy and real. I really felt like I was there in the alleyway when Billie Joyce (BJ) was turned and Daniel coming to her rescue…BJ is th

I'm totally IN LOVE with "BJ"!!!!!!
She stub-born,hill-billy and she has a great name :0)

This story is wonderful.....I mean who would of thought of a vampire who faints at blood?
Or Better yet....A pregnant vampire!!!!
Yes..You read that right!

The characters are so lovable..the men actually act like real men....Totally aloof to how to handle their feelings when it comes to women, never there when you REALLY need them, and always think they know better.
Of course the women are stub-born, bitchy, hide

Dead Faint is the second book in the series, and it doesn't loose any of the sarcasm, humor and charm that started in the first book, Dead Awake. It's definitely a page turner! I just couldn't put it down.

BJ's charming country slang had me laughing out loud on more than one occasion, which brought some strange looks my way because I took this book everywhere.

Billie Joyce Nolan is a small town girl that is tired of the country life. When her father passes away she decides to visit the biggest of

A vampire who faints at the site of blood? How can that not be a premise for a great book? I liked the characters, but I didn't really get to know Daniel. This book was just okay for me. If it had been a full length book, it would have been better. This story is 109 pages long. Maybe if I had read the first book, Dead Awake, I would've gotten a little more back story on Daniel. It started out strong, then felt a little rushed but it has great potential. I like the spin Leaf gave to vamps. I like ...more

"Dead Faint" is the second book of the Dead series. I haven't read the first book, but after reading this one I want to. This a novella about Billie Joyce that is a country. She has some sass and isn't afraid to share that with you. I found this book funny in parts and I loved the sarcasm. Sometimes a writer can overplay a certain quality in a character and I was so happy to read that this wasn't done with Billie Joyce. Due to a series of unfortunate events, BJ gets turned into an accidental vam ...more

Dead Faint is one of those good vampire novels that you can't put down. The whole Dead Series has turned out to be like that for me. This book had me in stitches when it came to the character Billy Joyce because she reminded me so much of some of the people in the area where I live. I'm from the south and Lizzie has the southern vocab down to an art. I can't wait to see what happens because things got pretty interesting, to say the least, in this installment so who knows what will happen next.

A vampire that faints at the site of blood...I love it! "Lizzie" pens her characters well developed with a touch drama, humor and sarcasm. "Dead Faint" is a fast read which you will find hard to put down. It was a totally enjoyable and humorous read. Recommended for all vampire/thriller fans.

This review is based on a complimentary copy which was provided for an honest review.

Enjoyed the tale of mountain gal turned vampire who faints at the sight of blood. I liked that the characters got annoyed with each other and used language in more likely to hear.

I would have liked this to be longer to savour these characters and their attraction.

Award winning author, Lizzie T. Leaf, started life in Kansas, continued her growing years in North Carolina, and currently shivers through the winters in Colorado. She has numerous e-Books of varying lengths and her first print novel, Struck by Lightning, won dual 2007 Beacon awards. Not a bad track record for a gal who came out of the closet with the dream to write after she turned fifty.
