Oh my GOD was this book HYSTERICAL! I don't know if it was intended to be parody and/or pure crack, but I took it to be so. Some of the purple prose in Mordred's descriptions and dialogue are utter genius. This book explores Elizabeth Tudor's Super Sekrit Life as a vampire Slayer (capitalisation important!) and how she fought and might/might not've conquered The Most Powerful Vampire Evar, Mordred. As in the Mordred from Arthurian legend. The plot is admittedly a bit weak and the characters are mostly caricatures -- especially Robin and Walsingham and Cecil and even Elizabeth herself, to as much of an extent as it can be when she's the narrator.

I recommend it -- not for high literature, but for a few hours of giggles, especially if you're into vampires and found Twilight repugnant.
