Book Blurb: On the first day of the new year, no one dies. This of course causes consternation among politicians, religious leaders, morticians, and doctors. Among the general public, on the other hand, there is initially celebration -— flags are hung out on balconies, people dance in the streets. They have achieved the great goal of humanity: eternal life.

Then reality hits home —- families are left to care for the permanently dying, life-insurance policies become meaningless, and funeral parlors are reduced to arranging burials for pet dogs, cats, hamsters, and parrots.

Death sits in her chilly apartment, where she lives alone with scythe and filing cabinets, and contemplates her experiment: What if no one ever died again? …

Book Blurb:Ben never imagined meeting vampires, let alone demons and werewolves, whilst in the Polish Resistance during World War II. Far from being horrified, Ben discovers that Miranda and her friends have very useful talents, especially when it comes to saving children from concentration camps. In desperate times the line between good and evil is clear, the one between heroes and monsters is very blurred.

My Thoughts:It took me a very long time to get into this book because it was hard for me to relate to the characters. I live in a time where things are completely different: its hard for me to grasp the fear, hatred, and love some of these characters felt and …

Book Blurb:Victor Gischler is a master of the class-act literary spoof, and his work has drawn comparison to that of Douglas Adams, Kurt Vonnegut, and Thomas Pynchon. Now, Gischler turns his attention to werewolves, alchemists, ghosts, witches, and gun-toting Jesuit priests in Vampire a Go-Go, a hilarious romp of spooky, Gothic entertainment. Narrated by a ghost whose spirit is chained to a mysterious castle in Prague, Gischler’s latest is full of twists and surprises that will have readers screaming – and laughing – for more.My Thoughts:In Vampire a Go-Go, we have the story of a modern man, our intrepid hero, Allen Cabbot, whose greatest accomplishment to date is his uncanny ability to research anything, “Imagine a superhero whose mutant …

Her non-gifted mother has been as supportive as possible, consulting Sophie’s estranged father–an elusive European warlock–only when necessary. But when Sophie attracts too much human attention for a prom-night spell gone horribly wrong, it’s her dad who decides her punishment: exile to Hex Hall, an isolated reform school for wayward Prodigium, a.k.a. witches, faeries, and shapeshifters.By the end of her first day among fellow freak-teens, Sophie has quite a scorecard: three powerful enemies who look like supermodels, a futile crush on a gorgeous warlock, a creepy tagalong ghost, and a new roommate who happens to be the most hated person …
