this is sort of a satire...not quite sure though. never really interested in vampire novels, but this novel centers around vampires and their secret world. It was funny at times, but i couldn't help but think of the health aspect of sucking a randoms stranger's blood.

Since a vampire is already dead, I'm not sure how the physiology of the whole blood sucking thing works. I guess vamps are somehow immune to bloodborne diseases? But then I think I recall there being a discussion of a clean food supply through blood banks in Nymphos of Rocky Flats.
I don't see Acevedo's work as satire. What could he be mocking in hopes of change? I do see it as a nice twist on the vamp mythology. What I want to see explored is how Felix has feelings of love and protection for Veronica in the same sentence he describes himself as lacking a heart and soul.
