Off-beat, short vampire ebook with teeth!
- Review by Kazza K
This is a humorous, little ebook which actually opens with a little tale called Idenity Theft. I enjoyed it. However, the main story is The Best Dentist in Orange County and that's what my review is about. I know that this blogpsot does focus heavily on romantic/erotic writing, but this really isn't in either of those categories. I do branch out. Two days, two books with neither.
Domingo is a 500+ year old vampire who has taken a bite out of a particularly thick necked surfer, and now finds himself with a toothache. Or is that fang-ache? Doesn't matter, either way Domingo has to find a dentist. His ever practical sister, Liseta, who he lives with, finds a local dentist who works at night and Dom is ready to go and have his tooth seen to.
That's the basic premise really. But it's the journey that is the most fun. Dom and his sister are originally from Spain, but now live in America. I liked the logic behind moving to/living in California, how easy it was to fit in -
When at last they arrived in California, the state had already acquired the reputation of being tolerant to unusual life forms, and was nearly overrun with actors, dancers, and other exotic denizens of the night.
The writing is nice, funny, smart. There's some historical facts thrown in and it was very well edited with a nice use of the English language. I would have liked just a bit more, but that's okay, I knew it was short going in.
I haven't heard of Tony-Paul de Vissage before but I feel he's worth getting to know better as a writer. If you like humorous, off-beat short reads, and you're partial to a paranormal/vampire theme, here is a short but interesting read that just might appeal.
