The invitation is imbued with magical power, and cannot be denied. Turf wars between rival vampire clans are rapidly overtaken by the real reason for the VampCon: it’s a bloodbath... and a sacrifice.

3 1/2 stars. Tons of stuff happening, maybe a bit too much, and the point of view jumps around a little (the chapter is of a certain person, then the next chapter is a different person). Didn't seem like there was any main character, but it seemed to start as if John was the main character. When done, you'll feel like you read 2 books, non stop action and twists.
John (vamp) tries to leave Boston but fate seems to be against him. Ariel tracks him down and tells him he needs to answer the summons

I received a copy of this book as a beta reader.

This is a quick moving story that has much more to it than I originally though (based on the description). First of all, the characters are well thought out and behave in a way that is true to them. That is to say they do do things that are out of character, they change, and they can be frustrating/confusing. It is obvious that Mr. Inezian put in a lot of effort - he has created a world complete with theories on why vampires exist, how they govern

I won this through LibraryThing. It's an ebook.

I'm only half-way through and I'm finding it tough going. I thought VampCon was going to be a convention and it's not. There are many different viewpoints and many strange characters. I prefer 1st person POV.

Finally finished, but it didn't get any better.

Thoroughly enjoyed this fast moving adventure story. It reminded me of a cross between True Blood and X-Men. It is set in a well thought out modern-day universe where vampires have different abilities. The action is fast-paced and keeps you guessing.

I don't like vampire books.

I actually like the whole vampire concept, but there are too many storylines that are all the same. Male vampire more than a hundred years old meets and falls in love with a seventeen-year-old girl. (Somehow, it never seems to be the other way round). So I kept seeing this story on the Greyhart Press website, but thinking it was just going to be a stupid

Jonathan Stoker was movin’ on. He’d been in the same place quite happily (if a vampire can be happy!) for too long. He was becoming content and that was bad. It meant things could happen – like the invitation to the Congregation of Houses to be held soon by the “new ruler”.
Jonathan tries anyway he can to get out of the city and up to Canada but no matters how hard he tries, Fate (in this case a blind vamp named Ariel) intervenes. He must attend. He is an heir to one of the leading families, it i

This is a great book…with interesting twists and turns; vampires getting together for a convention.

The main characters are fascinating and it was effortless to like and/or hate them. The plot is complex and attention-grabbing. It isn't like any other vampire book that is out there now…you don’t know what each chapter will bring…it keeps you involved. It is fast moving and I couldn't stop reading because I had to find out what was going to happening next. I was so far on the edge of my chair tha

This pulpy vampire novel doesn't waste any time getting to the action. From the start, the humorously named Jonathan Stoker gets thrown into this vampire congregation--some fancy meet and greet with all the vampires, like a big, ugly family reunion. A different slant on vamps, this departs from all Anne Rice-ian and Twilight notions of pretty vamps and gets to some gritty and kind of nasty origins involving giant spider aliens with poisonous salivating bellies. Narsty. Throw in some ancient magi ...more

I received this book as a beta reader.

It didn't sound exactly like something I'd read but I was curious - and really enjoyed it. :)
It's a fast and good read (read it in two days), the happenings here aren't predictable and what you first think will probably be the climax of the story isn't it at all - it's just part of the start really.
I found the characters interesting and was curious to learn more about them - I liked the concept about magic here as well as the different view on vampires. I ca

The fast moving adventure starts when Jonathan gets the invitation to Congregation of Houses, a meeting of all vampires and the head honcho. Through the possibilities of losing his son to the crazed vamps, to working with those that created him that he loathed, it all came down to each character pressing on individually to work as a team to take down a magical power that threatened everyone's existence even mortals. I cannot believe all the twists and turns it kept me up most of the night to fin ...more

I won a copy through the Goodreads: First Reads program.

Not bad for a pulp vamp novel. The POV changes are a bit distracting, but not overly. I'd have preferred a bit more explanation of the jump in time, and, honestly, a bit lighter hand on the gore (but that's just my personal preference -- other folks will probably love that best). I did enjoy Inezian's take on the vampire mythos, one that is certainly different if you're used to Anne Rice, Stephenie Meyer, or the vast collection of "PNR/urba

If you are like me and are constantly on the go with ereader in hand, don't start this book until you have time to sit down to read it. But be sure to make time. If you try to read a chapter at a time, it gets confusing.

This book is not like the Twilight or TrueBlood series with cookie-cutter vampires. In VampCon, each creature brings their own skills and uniqueness to the story. It is intense and sometimes a little long. However if you like vampire books that are not mainstream, you will enjoy

I received this book as a beta reader. I enjoyed the story line of the book. There were some characters that really got developed and some that did not get so developed. I would have liked to learn more about Abby. She seemed like a really good character. It was a quick read because you wanted to keep knowing what was going to happen. Right when you thought you had reached the climax of the book, there was another one farther in the book. I would recommend this book to others that enjoy reading ...more

The story has a very epic feel to it from the beginning. The problem I ran into is the book covers such a huge world that I was unable to get invested into the characters till the very end. There was excellent pace to the action and the book did end on a strong note. If you do enjoy a good action book without a lot of filler you will still enjoy this book.

A fast-paced thriller with lots of intriguing characters,and vampires with an incredible variety of powers, although none of them sparkle. :) Highly recommended for readers looking for some vampiric variety.

Just finished reading this book (stayed up until 12:30am to finish!), and really enjoyed it. Interesting and different take on a vampire book. Lots of action right out of the gate, kept me engaged and definitely was a page-turner for me.

I Liked VampCon very much. It reminded me of Simon Green's books with a touch of Joss Wheldon's Angel thrown in.
