Vampires and Werewolves


The Underworld films are a couple of my new favorites. I enjoyed the fresh Romeo and Juliet spin they put on the classic vampire and werewolf story. Plus, Kate Beckinsale's character totally kicked butt.

I was delighted to find another interesting spin on the vampire/werewolf story courtesty of a post from Spoiled for the Ordinary's blog. "Never Ceese" by Sue Dent tells the story of:

an English manor owned by Richard, the vampire who righteously is the bain of his neighbor's existence, what with the missing goats and all! Then enters Cecelia, better known as Ceese, the young werewolf maiden who's arrived via invitation by Richard's aging companion, Penelope. Ceese and Richard would prefer to tear each other apart, literally, but they are drawn together by their mutual love for Penelope. She is dying and has one request...that the two of them love one another.
Reviewers said this novel deals with the lead characters seeking a cure for their spiritual curses and ponders on the path if they can get into Heaven if the curse is lifted. I hope this book lives up to its hype because right now I'm really excited about reading this one.

And I'm excited about you having it. LOL Now go buy it! Hurry! Actually, I'd send you one except I have to hit my publisher up for another box.

Seriously though, I think you'll enjoy it. And if you're in Canada in March of 2007, I'll be at the World Horror Convention as a special guest to Nicholas Grabowsky, author of Halloween IV and The Everborn, hoping that my recommendation for a Bram Stoker Award turns into a possible nomination, something I can actually brag about.

God Bless and let me know when you get to read it.

Wow. Sometimes life throws you suprises, I had no idea that an actual author would comment on my blog. Your book is definately on the top of my list for books to buy and not because you wrote me a comment. Your novel genuinely interests me because of your fresh take on a classic story.
