Editorial Reviews

When 17-year-old Darcy's mother gallivants off to Europe to get married, she leaves the girl with her Uncle Jake, whose business, a horror museum called The Dungeon of Horrors, is also his home. Richie Tankersley Cusick's young adult suspense story Vampire follows Darcy as a series of strange events take place surrounding her summer home - including a shocking number of dead girls found in alleys with slashes on their throats, a clear sign of a vampire on the loose. Experienced audiobook performer Judith West adeptly embodies a range of characters, from teenaged Darcy to her imperious mother and her quirky uncle, lending tension to the plot's surprising twists and turns.

Publisher's Summary

It's Darcy Thomas' summer home: the Dungeon of Horrors, owned by Jake, the gorgeous green-eyed uncle she's just met. But the gory fun turns to terror when real bodies are found with the mark of a vampire on their throats - and Darcy is targeted as the next victim.

Campy Vampire

If you are a fan of cheesy, campy B-movie vampires, you will enjoy this book. Darcy Thomas is dumped on her Uncle Jake's doorstep when her Mother takes off for a European honeymoon. Jake happens to own a macabre place called the Dungeon, which is full of exhibits depicting various movie monsters. Jake seems a little strange, even referring to the monsters as his family.

Darcy meets several young people and things start to get weird. There is Elliott, the brain damaged young man that keeps following Darcy. Brandon is a handsome guy, recently cast in the role of Dracula for a local play. His girlfriend, Liz, takes an immediate disliking to Darcy. And, her brother, Kyle, just seems like an ordinary guy.

Darcy starts experiencing strange events and soon begins to suspect everyone she knows of being a murderer after she stumbles upon the latest victim, a young woman with strange, vampire-like marks on her neck. Can she really trust anyone or is she doomed to be the next victim of the so-called Dracula murderer?

Yes, the book has all of the stereotypical things that I love in a campy story: the heroine going off by herself in the dark, the friends who don't believe any of her strange tales, creepy alleys, stupid acts by the heroine, and lots of bad Transylvania-like accents. If you are looking for a fun way to distract yourself and you love this type of book, you won't be disappointed.

The narrator does a great job and her performance added a lot to the book.
