Book Description

The time is tomorrow. A meteor storm has allowed monsters of every order to run free across the planet. Vampires, werewolves, ghosts, demons and other atrocities are the new bad guys on the block. To contend with this prevalent threat, various law enforcement agencies have created special divisions to deal with the monster epidemic. LAPD has created Monster Vice, and its senior cop is Dick Pitts -- a specialist in monster extermination. On a daily basis, Pitts stakes vampires, executes werewolves, and exorcises demons. When his partner is killed, he is assigned a new partner named Curadel -- who is in fact Dracula -- a greatly misunderstood Dracula through the ages and a Dracula who has become a cop to help humanity deal with the vampire plague. Now, Pitts and Dracula must team up and fight a Grand Master - the most powerful vampire in the world - who is hell bent on transforming every child in Los Angeles into a bloodsucking killing machine. Pitts and Dracula create a special platoon of 'fang warriors' -- their mission: to find the Grand Master and shut down his evil plans before the streets of LA are flooded in a sea of blood.

1.0 out of 5 stars fang you but no May 16, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
An alcoholic and somewhat stupid cop is the star officer of the LAPD Monster Vice squad. See, he's courageous and doesn't get killed because, well... he's the hero. In spite of his being in an alcoholic haze most of the time, being totally incompetent and getting all his partners killed (our backup isn't here yet, so let's walk in to this den of vampires armed only with pistols, stand in a line and look around because someone might need rescuing) he's the only one who can fight the Grand Master Vampire. So far, silly but lots of blood and action.

Then it stops. The middle third of the story is page after page after page of exposition; an interview with an insane psychiatrist, a description of fungal diseases of palm trees (I kid you not), a remote viewing history lesson and bunches of other mostly irrelevant and very, very long descriptions.

Then the last third, where the author seems determined to shove every possible sexual deviation, psychological weirdness and drug usage in the readers face, no matter how silly or improbable. The hero reacts to these in such an over-the-top emotional way that I got bored. Enough with the angst, already!

The characters are caricatures, the most common way problems are resolved is deus ex machina and the whole story is like a parody of the tough-cop genre. If it wasn't for the blood, sex and drugs I'd think the author was trying to be funny. If so, he fails. If not, he really fails.

Monster Vice defines a new genre of horror/weird/twisted/get-the-author-to-a-shrink - the main hero has to engage in some kind of sexual practice every 24 hours, or else he turns into a bloodsucking vampire. Helping out in this endeavor is a new incarnation of Dracula, who now has a hot biker-chick as a partner. Dracula is a good guy in this book. All very amusing and different. Five stars for M. Saunders.

This book was so off the wall, but I liked it anyway. It kept me amused and it was nice to ready something totally different for a change.

5.0 out of 5 stars Vampires, Werewolves and other things. November 11, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a tongue-in-cheek read. Every cliche, every dumb joke a nd many statements of unbelievable understatement.

You will either laugh out loud or you will find another book to read.

This tickled my funny bone and I have to admit I enjoyed the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun Fun Fun! April 10, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Fast and fun - you'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll cringe (sometimes in fear and sometimes in Eeew!) but George Saunders always brings imagintive writing, interesting unusual characters and lots and lots of humor to great action/adventures like this one.
