The main characters, Jody and Tommy, are hardly your standard Dracula/Renfield vampire combo. In some ways, I'm not sure they would even be interesting without the vampirism. But, they are pretty interesting and amusing ...

All the supporting cast - The Animals, Officers Capuvo & Riviera, the Emperor, the Vampire dude - are also a bit (!!!) odd each in their own way ...

What are you thoughts on the characters as written and how they add or detract from the overall story?

Donna (donnahr) The Emperor is definitely my favorite character. And his "men" of course. I love the scenes that he is in.

The Animals remind me of the show "Reaper" that was on last year. The characters worked at a Home Depot-ish type store and definitely did things like turkey bowling. They also got off their stoned butts and went off to fight evil. It's nice to know when the supernatural s**t hits the fan, we'll be able to count on the stoners.:)

The relationship between Jody and Tommy does bother me a bit. It doesn't ring very true. I don't really know why she would be with him, except that she really did need a "minion" to help her, but it's put across that she actually loves him. I never could totally buy into that.

Alexis (alexisfromoregon) Well I'm almost done and I do like this book don't mind the characters (I too especially like the Emperor and his men- and how people all over respect him) and the tech thing don't bother me either. Wouldn't say this was the best ever book, but I have laughed out loud in parts and found it a quick and pleasant read.

Scott The one exchange that I really liked between Jody and Tommy was when they were "testing" the vampire theories. I thought that it was a funny exchange of dialogue.
