American Vampire had me at “snatch magnet” on the first page. Jennifer Armintrout streams clever turns of phrase and dry humour with characters flawed enough to be real. Sophia and Marjorie steal their scenes, and Becky’s over-the-top trashiness is a delight.
From the cornfields to the high school, Penance is one freaky town, populated with spooky Baptists…and a monster. This romantic creature feature novel has suspense in spades, and though it’s best suited to Halloween, buy it now and read at night. A rollicking good time!
