The Wannabe Vampire is a story about Michael Alexander. He is a vampire, but leads a very normal life. He lives in a regular neighborhood, has a fantastic new neighbor, a good job, and he drives a Prius. He also has a very unwelcome stalker.
Michael’s character is totally not that of the typical vampire, his life is just so normal! The only thing that is vampiric about him is his need for blood, and he does have that certain old world charm. He builds a friendship with his neighbor Kari Logan. I loved her character because she is not at all the damsel in distress; she looks out for herself. She is also a bit tomboyish, loves the great outdoors, and she is fun. Bruce is Michael’s stalker, and he is being haunted. He is seeking out a vampire to help with his little problem. Bruce is rather pathetic, but there is no denying that his character is amusing!
Taylor has written a book that took me by surprise. This was such a fun story with all the elements. There was humor, romance, and excitement in this little paranormal gem. I sat down with the intentions of reading one or two chapters, and before I knew it the book was finished. So many authors rely on the cliffhanger ending in series books, but I found it refreshing that Taylor gave the reader some closure. However, I am certainly going to enjoy revisiting these wonderful characters in future books.
Michael Alexander is not your typical vampire.
He has a house in a small coastal California city, a software development team in Mumbai, and a black Toyota Prius. He wants nothing more than to enjoy the pleasant life he’s crafted for himself and the friendship of Kari, his new next door neighbor.
Unfortunately, Michael also has a stalker.
Bruce is convinced that only the power of a vampire can save him from the ghost that haunts him. After a chance encounter in the grocery store, he turns to Michael for help. When Bruce’s entreaties are rejected, his unstable nature takes over. Trapped between a desperate and deranged man and his fantasies, Michael and Kari are caught in the crossfire.
