I'm wondering if I downloaded a different book than the other reviewers read. Because I did not find the sophomoric humor a bit entertaining.

I love J.R. Rains. I have bought and read everything he has written. I've read some of Scott Nicholson's Horror and I liked that as well.

What happened here?

Spoiler Alert:

Ok, so we have a club of college students who love Anne Rice and old vampire movies. They act like eighth graders, not college students. That is about the emotional and intellectual level of these morons.

On information that wouldn't convince anyone they go vampire hunting. Meet up with the people who keep vampires from walking the earth who are well trained and heavily armed and defeat them? Vampire or no vampire, these guys would not have done any of the stupid things they did if they were a well trained fighting force. I felt like instead of the VVV the should have been the CCC Circus Clowns Contingent.

Then after all the ooooh I want to be a Vampire soooo much, Andy becomes a vampire and he's Louis in the Anne Rice Books? And he loved the Anne Rice books so he would have known that supposedly some vampires had angst about their humanity? But now he hates being a vampire? And after promising that if any member of the club became a vampire they would make everyone in the club vampires he says no? What fun is that. Make the whole club into vampires and then you have the next (maybe pathetic) book.

I didn't like the main characters. They were stupid and flat. The dialogue was almost painful. Andy was an idiot.

It was an interesting premise. It could have been a good book if the writing wasn't so awful, they had fleshed out the characters and they had an actual ending.

I'll skip the sequel. I suggest you skip the books altogether.

This spoof on vampire fans is so funny...I mean laugh-out-loud funny! Anyone who saw and loved The Lost Boys will appreciate the Corey Haim references (may he rest in peace). You will giggle at the Vu Vlux Vlan and the Vampire Club's single-mindedness to proving that vampires really exist. This is yet another book by J. R. Rain that will leave you anxiously awaiting the next!

Whether tis nobler to eat, drink, and dream the wonderful world of the bloodsucker or get those fangs for yourself! The Vampire Club, a group of four students at Western Virgina University led by Professor L, would give a resounding Duh! - it's the fangs. Their quest is to find a "living" vampire and convince the vampire to add four more to that noble species. Andy Barthamoo leads the group and believes he has found the resting place and the answer to their quest. All they have to do is dig him up and convince him. Simple. A fifth student joins the group (name of Dial) providing a place to stay for the promised weekend of resurrection and immortality. Their quest will not be easy with a creepy mansion, Dial's relative who all resemble muscle-bound gods and amazons, and vampire hunters. And the Bard's immmortal ?: To be a vampire or not be a vampire?
The combined writing talents of Scott Nicholson and J.R. Rain take a story of dismemberment, blood sucking, grave digging, and silver bullets (all the elements of a dire horror film) amd mix in humor ranging from a chuckle, a snort (you know the kind where the milk you're drinking shoots out of your nostrils), that smile you just can't rid of, and the laugh that won't quit. The Vampire Club takes you on their quest with a story that leads you from one misadventure to the next, loyalties, betrayal, and the ultimate crunch time (we're not talkin' the Captain here) of using those fangs and biting that sweet neck. The Vampire Club is well worth your time with a coming attraction, Second Sip: The Vampire Club #2. Go for it and eat, drink, and dream the noble species of the vampire. Thanks Scott and J.R., you brought the bright beams of the moon and made me laugh. Fangs a lot, guys.

I purchased this book based on J.R. Rain's other novels and expected more from this combination of authors. The novel was not up to his normal level of writing and ended far too soon. While the book does provide the origin of the main character, it does not really do anything with that character. This would be analagous to following Peter Parker up to the point he was bitten by the spider then saying "Done, come back again later". As it is, there is little incentive to read the next book in the series as I am not invested in the character at all.

The Vampire Club was fun, fabulous and original. This refreshing take on vampires pits a college club of vampire advocates (yes, I said advocates!) against a dreaded secret society of vampire killers. I laughed out loud and giggled at just about every page as the mystery of the man killed with a silver bullet unfolded for an ensemble cast of vampire studies majors who sleuth out the truth about vampires and live to serve and protect them, if they ever find a real one! With hero Andy at the helm, some faithful guy buddies, a professor, a mysterious newcomer to the club, and a very cute, nice college girl for the guys to aspire to impress, this is a great YA tale with a surprise ending and many twists and turns to get there. I enjoyed this thoroughly and await the next in this series that is as entertaining as it is offbeat and unpredictable. There's lots of action and plenty of strange bad guys to add to the suspense. Though I am an adult, I enjoyed reading this book and recommend it to others who enjoy a fast-paced book with plenty of tongue-in-cheek sparkling dialogue and a great, spooky setting to explore. Read this today! -- Eve Paludan, editor of Vampires, Zombies and Ghosts, Oh My! (story anthology)
