Oh my goodness where do I start?
first Vampires... you say lame ,well you are right, well not so much lame as over used.
I read this because a friend was like if you want to laugh read this s*%#t!
as far as writing, the first rule of writing is SELF EDIT clearly not done here.
As far as the D.C. location clearly the author is some one who's read travel guides about visiting there.(and that's sort of how much of the book reads)
As the synopsis above may have clued you into already women (or females as it states)are treated as objects (not sex objects more like furniture)
pretty much anytime women are mentioned its very creepy.
But that's alright because I'm pretty sure this is told from the perspective of a robot.
as far as the fantasy world of D.C. a night of drinks and shots cost $35.00 (no wonder it's the nations capital)

Like I said its reallly hard to know where to start or even give a good coherent review.
just thinking about this book has me almost peeing myself with laughter(you can quote that for the book jacket)
All I can say is if you love Plan 9 from outer space, Glen or Glenda or any M.S.T.3.K. fare you will have hours of fun with friends reading this aloud.

P.S. It is my belief that this was written by either
1 A shut in.
2 A nun
3 A prison inmate
4 Alien
5 Robot.
so if you look at it that way its...uhm.. interesting?

to sum it up best comedy of the year.

one star for being on paper
one star for being so funny

Format: Paperback
The obsession with vampires and werewolves has been around in American culture for a while now. Due to the recent success of the Twilight Saga, we begin to notice more books, and movies on the subject. "The Immortal Ones," by John F. Ferrer, is another book added to the ever-growing list of literature about these creatures.

This story takes place in good old Washington, DC. The author adds landmarks as well as local businesses in the story, and as a resident of the area, it was very exciting to read about the places and know exactly what he means when he describes it. Incorporating these known places makes you feel part of the book, as if you are following along in it. What I really liked is how each chapter is told in the point of view of the characters. So each chapter is told from a different set of eyes. You get to discover the story as if you were in it as opposed to being an outsider looking in.

The storyline is very creative and consists of a twisted love story and fate you would not expect. This isn't your average vampire/mortal love story. It was an easy read and I quickly became engulfed in the storyline. The author's intent was for this to be an adult novel. However, the way the author writes can easily be read by teens and young adults, though the content may be a little too mature for that audience.

Overall, I would recommend it as light reading. Don't expect it to change your life, but it is thoroughly entertaining if you need to read something to pass time by on the metro, or waiting at the doctor's office. The author's character follows some of the traditional traits of werewolves and vampires versus the new age vampires we are seeing today. Though, you have to overlook the minute grammatical errors, which bothered me for a little while but then I got over it. Hopefully this will be taken care of in the second printing. I would probably be interested in reading on if a sequel was written.

Format: Paperback
Derek lives a life of horror-movie fantasies until he meets a girl at a club and those horror movie monsters turn out to be real. Overnight his life is turned upside-down. Though there is a fair bit of action, the love polygon is the backbone of the story. Werewolves love vampires; vampires love humans; humans love werewolves; it's all just a mess. There are definitely echoes of Twilight here, but with more sex and less angst. The vampire and werewolf mythos are a little different from the traditional as well. Like in Buffy the Vampire Slayer, vampires look like ordinary (though beautiful) humans until they get angry or hungry, at which point their faces "crack" and the fangs come out. Werewolves are pretty much hairy vampires: they also wolf out under stress, live forever, and drink blood. Both species can learn to keep their respective transformations under control. Both have a preference for human blood but can survive on the less tasty blood of animals. Werewolves, however, like vampire blood best of all, and are arguably the only thing (besides the sun) that can kill a vampire. (Whether or not a werewolf can be killed remains to be seen.) The other twists are more subtle: gold (not silver) hurts werewolves, and vampires (but not werewolves) are weakened by wolfsbane. (To be fair, Dracula was kept out by wolfsbane.)

Like many self-published books, this one is in desperate need of a good editor. The author clearly has a basic misunderstanding of punctuation. For most of the story I felt less like I was reading a story than having one described to me. The main characters were all fairly interchangeable in terms of personality, but I did enjoy a couple of the minor walk-ons, like Hank from the jazz club and Emma from the bookstore.
