Review: The Vampire Stalker

The Vampire Stalker

Author: Allison Van Diepen
Pages: 272
Publisher: Point
Source: Library
Synopsis: What if the characters in a vampire novel left their world--and came into yours? 

 Amy is in love with someone who doesn't exist: Alexander Banks, the dashing hero in a popular series of vampire novels. Then one night, Amy meets a boy who bears an eerie resemblance to Alexander. In fact, he IS Alexander, who has escaped from the pages of the book and is in hot pursuit of a wicked vampire named Vigo. Together, Amy and Alexander set out to track Vigo and learn how and why Alexander crossed over. But when she and Alexander begin to fall for each other, Amy wonders if she even wants him to ever return to the realm of fiction.

The Vampire Stalker begins as every book lover's dream come true. Your favourite literary crush is actually real? Wow.

I liked Amy. She was your average nice, bookish teenage girl. She had good friends and loved books but did a lot of stuff other than read. She did everything for the ones she cared about. Amy still would stand up for what she believed in though. I thought Allison did a great job with portraying her as a real teenager.

Alexander, the vampire stalker, was hot. I loved reading about how he our Chicago was different from his own. His passion was believable and I overall really liked him. He was brutal at times and a little too perfect for Amy but still a character I liked.

The plot was always interesting. I think this would be a great movie because something was always happening. Near the end things really picked up and I was so excited to see what would happen. I did expect the ending but reading The Vampire Stalker was still amusing. It was readable.

Overall this is a fun read that would appeal to anyone who's ever had a crush on a character from a book. 3.5 stars,

*** & 1/2 *
