At the Afterlife Academy of Exceptionally Dark Arts, Lily Fielding is a measly trainee who dreams of one day becoming a Saviorthose who visit vampire-infested high schools and put down the undead with their deadly crossbows. When Lily and her classmates Alice and Cara begin their latest assignment, it seems like just another run-of-the-mill gig: they’re to simply spot the Vamplayer—part vampire, part player—identify the popular girl he’s set his sights on, and befriend her before the Vamplayer can turn her to do his bidding. Before long, however, the Vamplayer sets his sights on Lily's friends, and she is left to face the threat alone while protecting her friends from the dark forces she has sworn to resist. (Goodreads Synopsis)

I was offered a review copy of this book and, since I enjoyed two of Rusty's other books, I jumped at the chance. I am glad to say that I was not disappointed.

This is a tale that kept me grinning and hooked on each page turn from start to finish. It has the same zany humour I've come to expect from this author and it is nicely paced. The twists are a little predictable at times, but this just adds to the fun as it is also a great spoof piece in many ways.

This book will definitely appeal to fans of horror-comedy and it boasts a cast of crazy and fun characters that will make you eager to turn each page and find out what will happen next. A great new story from Rusty Fischer whether you are new to his writing or already a fan.
