Review

Legally Undead takes us on a spirited romp as Elle's plans for a life in New York City with her fiance are dashed the night she comes home to find him being drained of blood by a real-dead vampire. (Can't really say "real-live".) Outraged, she stabs the sucker through the heart with her letter opener.

So begins Elle's fight with the vampires of New York. While she does get some help from professionals, what makes this vamp-romp different from the average is how normal Elle's life is. Other vampire fighters get custom made stakes. Elle's like the rest of us. She has to make do with chopsticks. And when she goes undercover, she's stuck with the same sort of supplies you or I would use, were it us.

All of which makes for delighful reading. Elle -- a vampire fighter for the rest of us!  ~L. Jagi Lamplighter, Author of The Unexpected Enlightenment of Rachel Griffin

***

Margo Bond Collins spins a delightful and tightly woven tale of intrigue and danger, whose protagonist, Elle Dupree, instantly joins the ranks of the great vampire hunters in a story where the blood sucking fiends are dire and the consequences grim. A truly fun yarn that has left me eagerly waiting the next book! ~Jenn Lyon, author of Blood Chimera

***

Finally, a vampire story with bite! Elle is a smart, witty vampire hunter, and I can't wait to find out what happens to her next. ~Rebecca Roland, author of Shards of History

This book has it all: humor, romance, suspense and vampires...what more can you ask for? ~Ella Marie at Reading is a Way of Life book blog.

OH…MY…GOSH!!!!! THIS BOOK IS FANFREAKINGTASTIC!!! Ok, I got that out of my system, so let me tell you about this completely awesome book.

Legally Dead is book one in the Vampirarchy series by Margo Bond Collins. I had high hopes after reading the synopsis for this book. And let me tell you, Margo Bond Collins delivered on every level possible.

Let me introduce you to Elle Dupree. She has her life planned out. She’s working on her PH.D and is engaged to her perfect match, Greg. Greg has just been hired on as a lawyer and all of their dreams are within reach. But everything changed the night Elle came home to find a vampire sucking the life out of her fiancé. But that was only the beginning. In a fit of rage, Elle grabs the first thing she sees, a teak letter opener and stabs the vampire in the heart. A group of strange men burst into her apartment and as she looks back at Greg’s body, he…is…gone!

“It’s never easy to see an ex for the first time after you’ve broken up. Seeing an ex for the first time after he’s been turned into a bloodthirsty evil creature of the night is possibly even less easy.”

I think Elle is my favorite female heroine of all time. She is sarcastic, smart, tough and sensitive at the same time, and just full of awesomeness. She has lost her fiancé, to a vampire no less, has been thrust into the midst of a band of vampire hunters, and she takes it all in stride.

There are so many questions, though, that need answering. Who turned Greg and why? What is the connection to the law firm where he worked? After Elle is attacked one night by her ex-now vampire, Greg, the oh so handsome and very human Malcolm, comes to the rescue.

I have to say that I was just not as enthralled with this book as the other reviewers. As a matter of fact if I could give 1/2 stars I would have given 2 1/2 instead of 3. Given the authors profession I was surprised at the grammar/editing mistakes that I came across. I thought it was smart to go into this with saying that no one really knew anything about how vampires worked but then the author would offer up scenarios that contradicted themselves later in the book (i.e. the sunlight thing). I also will say that after a while it just got a little boring so I skimmed a lot of it. This subject is the supreme in fantasy but it still has to be plausible and I did not find this to be for the most part. I hate to give spoilers on this one bc with just a few it would ruin the entire book. Probably won't read any more though.

I love writing about vampires. More specifically, vampire hunters. And one of my favorite scenes I have written involves a kickass heroine, a seedy bar, and some snide comments from her band of fellow hunters, a group of men who don't seem to have ever really grown up. I love this character, she has a special place in my heart and always will. So it was really cool to read a book starring a main character that reminded me so much of my own.

The dialogue in this book is so wonderfully written. Elle is just plain sassy. What else can you call a girl from New Orleans? She makes the story worth reading, and her first three vampire kills are almost eye-rollingly funny. I mean, I wanted to yell at her for doing what she did in both, but she's so effective that in the end all I could think was "Hey, it worked, can't fault her for that." And the snark from the rest of the characters throughout the story is entertaining as well.

I thought it was quite ingenious to make blood-sucking leaches kill blood-sucking leaches. Okay, so I really have nothing against lawyers, but I thought the concept was truly hilarious and just couldn't stop laughing every time it came to mind.

All I want to add is that Elle is lucky her fiancé was bitten, then changed, by a vampire, because at least after that she was able to see what a jerk he was. I mean, most people have to marry the person to find out their true personality. Or at least the undiluted version of their personality that they kept dimmed down until the rings were put on. Hey, at least I am finding the whole light in the dark with this whole fiancé eaten by vampire thing, right?

Book Review
Legally Undead
by Margo Bond Collins

FIVE STARS
I began reading this ebook because it had amazing reviews. TONS of them. But I don't ever read the reviews, I tend to read the negative reviews not the good ones. I didn't find one with as far back as I went. Therefore I went in not knowing what I was going to be reading.

The book start sort of backwards. You have a scene where this woman is walking through the Bronx and gets attached by a vampire, kills it, and calls Nick to come help with a clean up. She says thats what she is doing, but this is how it all started... Then the book goes back a few months to explain how she got to where she is today.

This woman is in her last years of school to get her PhD in history while her fiance is a lawyer at some big ass firm. She comes home to find him hanging by the hand of a vampire, limp and seemingly dead. She freaks out and stabs the vampire in the heart with a wooden envelope opener, just as a covert vampire hunting team smashes through her door. They see she has not only protected herself and survived, she killed the threat. BUT, her husband has disappeared. Which means he was turned, not killed. This all happens within the first chapter. I was hooked!

I wasn't expecting everything I did get in this book. The book was seemingly realistic, gave science (psuedo science as it may be) behind vampires saliva and other things. This girl is doing what she must in order to survive. The team works with her to find out what is going on with her husband and WHY his law firm is involved. This book was well thought out and planned. Gave reason to want to buy the next in the series without leaving it in massive cliff hanger mode.
