Some books improve with age--the age of the reader, that is. Such is certainly the case with Philip Pullman's heroic, at times heart-wrenching novel, ...more "First Betsy Taylor loses her job, then she's killed in a car accident. But what really bites is that she can't seem to stay dead. And now her new friends have the ridiculous idea that Betsy is the prophesied vampire queen, and they want her help in overthrowing the most obnoxious power-hungry vampire in five centuries. "
My Take (very mild spoilers):
This was a very funny and light read! Imagine Betsy:
becoming a vampire, being dragged into vampire politics by Eric Sinclair:
(couldn't resist putting this pic up)
to defeat a vampire likes this (Nostrodamus)
(But with a cape)
Throw in humour, shoes, a financial backer and a new gay friend.
The only complaint I have is that Betsy is very bitchy (all fine) but hell she needs to take a breather sometimes and shut up lol.
Definitely something to read if you are in a reading rut and looking for something fun. I will be reading the next ones!
*Spoilers* (Drag over to highlight)
Betsy is a foretold Vampire Queen. She doesn't care about vampire politics but with enough persuasion Eric gets her to believe him and they set out to overthrow Nostro.
The whole books is quotable! But I like the first line: “The day I died started out bad and got worse in a hurry.”
