The Reformed Vampire Support Group

The Reformed Vampire Support Group
by Catherine Jinks

Maybe Stephenie Meyer has it all wrong.  Maybe being a vampire isn't as cool as it looks.

According to Nina, being a vampire is horrible.  Vamps are weak, sick, exhausted, and quite literally dead during the daylight hours. 

Once a week, she and other vamps like her meet to discuss their problems, their hopes, their dreams, and their regrets.  It's been like this since Nina was turned in 1973.  (She's now 51, but still in the body of a 15 year-old.)

But now things have changed.  Their maker, the vamp who started the chain of vamp creations years ago, is dead.  For real this time.  Staked in the heart.  Dust.  And the others must now come together, get past their weak forms, and try to find the guy who did it, before he does it again.

Can they be the stuff of legend?  Or will they all finally breathe their last breaths?

Final thoughts:  Eh.  It was what it was.  It had it's good points, but nothing really stood out.
