Suburban Vampire: A Tale of the Human Condition—With Vampires

Rate this book

Office worker and ordinary guy Scott Campbell is probably the last person you’d suspect of being a vampire. His new supernatural enemies may underestimate him, but this suburban vampire is much stronger than anyone thinks.

The trouble begins when another driver runs Scott off the road. Scott survives the car crash, but the other motorist immediately attacks him in the wreckage.

The assault changes Scott forever. He suddenly has heightened senses, supernatural strength, and an insatiable hunger. The truth is undeniable: Scott is a vampire. Soon he’s immersed in the arcane, highly ritualized, and surprisingly bureaucratic world of the supernatural.

After Scott foils a mass shooting at a local mall, he’s ordered to stand trial by the House, the ruling authority among vampires. The group plans to condemn him to death for being an unregistered vampire who has potentially exposed vampire kind to an unsuspecting public.

Scott’s heroism also catches the attention of Detective Grace Montoya, who’s obsessed with uncovering his secret and exposing him to the world!

Will Scott’s new superpowers help him win his trial and dodge Montoya’s investigation? He’ll have to fight against a system that’s been ingrained in vampire society for centuries, but he may find supernatural allies willing to join in the struggle.

The author has an excellent sense of humor throughout this book without being cheesy. Even with the humor, this book has a lot of suspense and thank God that the vampires make fun of sparkly vampires. I felt like this book is an accurate depiction of how vampires would be if they existed (or do they?? I'm confused after reading this book) in the modern world today.

Honestly, this book is for anyone and everyone and is a great casual read. It has a great storyline, good dynamic characters and a dash of humor and suspense to keep it interesting.

I won this book in a Goodreads giveaway. This does not influence my opinion below.

This book was fun and a good read! Honestly, it was nothing like what I was expecting. In part, it is a tale of the main character and his struggle with vampirism and faith as he has both and fighting for what is right for humans and for vampires. Posner has an easy to read writing style and flows well and moves the story forward. I loved this book! Can't wait for the next one!

This isn't your typical vampire story. Tongue in cheek humor instead of flowery descriptions.
Can be a little cheesy and religious at times, more back story would be nice.
I am interested in seeing what comes next.
Part of the four stars is my general love of Vampire stories in general.

Received free e-book from a Goodreads giveaway.

Reading this book was fun. I enjoyed the tone and character development. The writing could use a bit of tightening up just to make it a cleaner read and it wasn't a page turner for me, but it was a perfect commuter read to bookend my work day. Also being able to read it on mythmachine.com on my phone gave me a break from carrying an extra book around.
