Book Description

Over 150 years ago, a man was killed with a silver bullet in a rural, Pennsylvanian town. A man who just might be a vampire.

The Vampire Club, a group of misfits who meet regularly in the basement of Western Virginia University’s library, think that they might have found their first documented case of a real vampire. Better yet, the Club thinks that the vampire might still be alive to this day, lying comatose in a hidden grave. And this is good news indeed for a group of vampire lovers.

As the hunt begins, they soon realize that they aren't the only ones interested in the vampire; indeed, a powerful group of killers will use whatever means possible to keep the vampire permanently in its grave.

1.0 out of 5 stars Can I give it minus one star? August 13, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it! May 18, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars To Be a Vampire Or Not To Be a Vampire - That Is the ? September 11, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Too short and forgetable September 19, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nothing but love for this new series! August 14, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The story is awesomely funny and original. I really enjoyed the main character's hilarious facts and obsession with vampires and the trek to find one. The combination of humor, romance, and suspense makes this book a favorite of mine. I cannot wait until the next one! JR Rain is one of my favorite authors.

5.0 out of 5 stars awesome book June 20, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
I just finished reading this book last night and I must say this is one book I couldn't put down and it was funny. This is a young adult book but I enjoyed it very anyways so if you are into these Young adult vampire novels I highly suggest you get this book because I am pretty sure you will like it as much as I did.
