Oh man. What an adventure I had! There I was, a young star pilot grad, and right out of the academy they've dropped a bombshell on me: We're being invaded by Vampires! Space vampires.

They need me. I'm their only hope. Do I accept, do I take the cushy boring assignment at the edge of the solar system instead (FYI, that might not be so cushy after all)

Thus begins the adventure of a thousand lifetimes. You can relive it over
In all my childhood, I probably only read between 5 and 10 books from the Choose Your Own Adventure franchise, so while I did like them, I was never a hugely devoted fan. But something about this one really stood out to me, and you can bet that just about all the make-believe adventures I had with my friends on the playground after reading this were "vampires from outer space" themed. Normally I would read whatever CYOA books I could find at libraries. This was the only one I actually purchased ...more

I would give this two and a half stars. The space vampire action seems at times as if it can actually be avoided, but in reality there is no such luck for those in want of a tamer adventure!
The story is both frightening and thrilling, with pulse-pounding escapades and side-escapades that should satisfy most reader's adventure glands. I always have liked to read this book, though usually with someone else close by! It is among my favorites in the Choose Your Own Adventure series.

This book is the followed by a sequel, Vampire Invaders, which I loved. However, this is definitely the stronger of the two in my opinion. Where VI took place mostly on Earth, this book's setting takes you across the galaxy, even to the vampires' home planet. It's got a very creepy and eerie atmosphere and gets pretty dark for the series. It's undeniably corny, but still great fun!

What is fun about these books is that the reader actually becomes the story's central character so you get to make decisions and create an adventure. You can end up reading one story in many different ways.

the adventures that I went through when I was bored I just read these books over and over again you would never get to the end of the story.

Actually not as cheeseball as the title would suggest. Good gamebook; choices make sense, and the plot can get creepy at times.

I think I always ended up getting killed at the end...I never was any good at making the right choices.
