This vampire Yaoi is one enjoyable read.
R.Parklane
Usually when a book has such great artwork on the cover, the inside art is only so-so.

It'll keep you reading straight through, I couldn't put it down.

I'll be honest, the main reason I bought this was because of the cover image; honestly, it just looked so hot, I had to see what it was for myself.

Boy did this yaoi not disappoint either! Not only is it delicious vampire-on-vampire hunter sex (including love-bites, oh my!), it's got a pretty decent plot line involving a maschoistic vampire with sadistic overtones named Sakuya, who's hell-bent on getting revenge on the man who captured him and made it so the poor vamp can't drink the blood of anyone anymore...or at least that's what he thinks. We soon discover that said vampire hunter, Atsumi, is just what our poor masochist needs and it's quite a playful romp for the both of them from there. How could a relationship in which "I hate you!" is so often meant in an entirely different way than the words are originally defined to be NOT be fun?

The art is great, actually, it's by the same artist who did "Tactics", "Mythical Detective Loki" and "Shinshoku Kiss" (Though she's writing under a different name here) and this has to be a more recent work, because her art is even better than before. It's really an engaging story, I couldn't stop reading once I started and I enjoyed it to the end. I really recommend it for someone who's looking for something where traditional "seme" and "uke" stereotypes and styles just don't apply.

I think like most people I bought this yaoi mainly because of the gorgeous cover and the plot line which promised delicious vampire love. But in addition to that Necratoholic is also full of action and at the same time incredibly funny.

Sakuya is a fearsome, high-ranking vampire lord ... or better was ... until he was ravished by Atsumi, a vampire hunter. Since then he no longer craves blood. But it seems that his loss of appetite is more a matter of heart and he simply want's no other blood than Atumi's.

In addition to the main plot line there are subplots, which are just hilarious: Sakuya and and his manservant Balaur running a S/M love hotel, Atsumi becoming an insurance salesman and trying to sell Sakuya, the vampire, life insurance, ...

This book is an overall enjoyable read and an absolute recommendation. It shouldn't miss in any yaoi collection.

This vampire Yaoi is one enjoyable read. Fast paced with a nice plot, the characters, both main and supporting, are appealing too. Sakuya the vampire uke is cute. OK he is meant to be scarry as he is after all a vampire lord with noble blood who has been around for a long time. But since bitten and ravished by Atsumi, (a vampire hunter who is borned of a vampire and human rendering him somewhat invincible), Sakuya has somewhat lost his zest for "living". The fact that he now only craves for Atsumi's blood certainly does not help. Of course the main reason is he is just love sick for Atsumi.
Atsumi is equally appealing as we gradually learn of his plight since biting Sakuya.
The plot is amusing too with some whacky scenes as Sakuya and his 2 faithful servants make their living by running a BDSM club/hotel sponsored by another "cool" human character. After all Sakuya is the dominant "BDSM queen" (chuckle). And I appreciate the mangaka's revelation of the 2 vampire servants' background towards the end of the story. Another interesting character appears mid-way in the story, complicating Sakuya's and Atsumi's relationship. He is ofcourse the head of the vampire hunters; does not matter if he is just a kid with brains!
True to a vampire tale, there are plenty of bites, gushing blood and gore but it would have been better if the sex is more explicit. Still the exhilarating storyline and characters makes this soft Yaoi a nice addition to my collection. And I do like this mangaka's lively artwork.

I won't get into how the story goes since there's a definition above, so lets just get onto the review!

To be honest, what truly first caught my attention from this book is the cover. Very yummy, right? Usually when a book has such great artwork on the cover, the inside art is only so-so. Let me tell you, it's good! The art is really well done compared to others I've seen. (I must admit it's not -as good- as the cover though).
The smex scenes (for those who truly enjoy those like myself) are well done! Very smexy. Especially if you enjoy a little bloodsucking in the action~
There is one thing that left me disappointed: You want to know what happens! Well, you know what happens, but you want to know if it ever ends or how the next chapter in these two characters lives continue. (Or two other characters you'll come to love). So I really suggest this books for lovers of yaoi and vampires!

Such a good book. If you're looking for a romantic, bloody, passionate, sex filled yaoi manga, this is it! <3 X3 I was sooooo pleased. All the great things you expect with vampires is in this book. Lots of yaoi. Endearing characters, emo at times but not overly so, and so sweet. It'll keep you reading straight through, I couldn't put it down. Not overly explicit, but definitely enough to satiate us real yaoi lovers. ;P I suggest it for all fans of yaoi and vamps. The artwork and storyline are to die for.
