Paranormal Comedy Review: Vamplayers by Rusty Fischer

Vamplayers by Rusty Fischer

kindle freebie

Synopsis from Goodreads
At the Afterlife Academy of Exceptionally Dark Arts, Lily Fielding is a measly trainee who dreams of one day becoming a Savior—those 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.

Vamplayers is a cool and funny bookish equivalent of a B-movie, and I think that's why I enjoyed it so much. Certain books are just like that, you don't have high expectations of them, but they are cheesy, cheeky and gruesome enough, you forgive them their overabundance of cliches. 

Lily's society is separated on Slayers and Sisters. Sisters infiltrate the school and prevent its infestation from the vampires who do not want to play by rules, while Slayers is the cavalry who saves everyone, destroying infestation which has already started.

Lily dreams of being a cool, sleek Slayer but year after year keeps failing her final exam and gets sent to a school after school, pretending to be a teenager to find and stop vamplayers.

This time is no different, however, while Lily is busy having fun with resident geeks, watching a marathon of zombie movies, her sisters get corrupted and soon stand against her in a company of a very powerful vamplayer. Now Lily and her team of scoobies have to use all their garlic and holy water to stop the evil from taking over the school.

Recommended. It will definitely cheer you up on a cold and depressing winter day.

Смешно, прикольно, вполне в духе вампирских комедий, и автор уж точно не воспринимает себя серьёзно. Книгу можно быстренько проглотить в холодный и мрачный зимний день, и от неё поднимется настроение.

Общество Лили разделено на Сестёр и Истребителей. Сёстры инфильтруют школу, в которой, как подозревается, шалит вампигрок - вампир не подчиняющийся правилам Совета Древних и убивающий и превращающий в нечисть всех подряд. Они останавливает его перед первой жертвой, а если школа уже заражена, то в дело вмешиваются Истребители, уничтожающие вампигрока и его жертв.

Лили годами мечтает перейти из Сестёр в Истребителей, но всё проваливается на последнем экзамене. И вот в очередной раз троица сестёр послана в частную школу, чтобы вычислить игрока, и пока Лили веселится с местными ботаниками, вампир коррумпирует её сестёр, которые встают на его сторону, и теперь только от Лили с её командой Скуби-ду зависит спасение всей школы. Готовьтесь к чесночным спреям  и бомбам из святой воды в стиле Баффи, будет весело!

Rusty Fischer writes great B-movie-style books - and I love them, both the books and movies! They're so much fun.

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
