Like the other reviewer, I bought this book when I was a teenage vampire fanatic and would read anything about vampires. That was a good 15 years ago and in the intervening time I've lost, or more probably thrown away, this book, and I've decided it's time to own another copy. Why? Because it's one of the most terrible pieces of writing I've ever read, and it's sort of unintentionally hilarious. I had the book at least through college, and at some point I'd had a fit where I went through the book with a red pen and corrected as much of the grammar and terrible writing as I could. It always made me feel better about my own writing, for one thing. For another, reading this book was like watching "Plan 9 From Outer Space" or other so-bad-they're-kind-of-good B movies. I now teach college students, and I'm thinking of adding this book to my arsenal of things to bring in when we work on writing issues: Fix this sentence, and if you can't see that there's something wrong with it then we are all in trouble here. The book is filled with ridiculous language, tone-deaf dialogue, inappropriately overwrought but totally hamfisted descriptions and characterizations, and a total inability to deal realistically with major plot points. After the main character comes out to his patrol partner as a vampire, the partner basically pounds the steering wheel of the squad car and exclaims, "S---! I can't believe you're a f------ vampire!" That's his entire adjustment to the news. If this sounds good to you, or if you're the kind of person who likes snarkily correcting the grammar on bathroom graffiti, then this book is for you. If it were a movie, it would be playing in midnight screenings where people yell and throw things at the screen.
Cop hero is vamped in the line of duty and switches to the night shift.

Hmm. Just *when* did the first Forever Knight pilot appear? Prior to this book's 1991 publication date? Yeah, thought so. Someone wanted to cash in on that back in the day. No surprise there.

No surprises in the book either. The hero has a book-long fight with an older vampire for control of the city and the hero's girlfriend. Yawn. This was on Forever Knight first and they did it better. Even the 1988 pilot with Rick Springfield was better.

The only good thing I *can* say about this one is the vamps don't sparkle. Which ain't saying much.

As a novel, it makes good bird cage liner. For a buzzard. With dysentery.
I bought this book during my teenage vampire stage, when I bought any book about vampires. It's not the best book I've ever read. There are several grammatical errors throughout the book, and cliches everywhere. There are a few really good descriptive phrases. I still have this book, and I read it from time to time, even though I cringe anew at some of the glaring errors. END
Sadly, I so gotta agree with Mystik and the reviewer #2...... I finished reading it out of pure stubborness. The only good thing I could really say about it is -- well, for aspiring writers this should be great encouragement! Apparently, even the most poorly written drivel can get published!!! (I would have called in sophomoric drivel, but that would have been undeserved flattery!)

I pulled this one off my shelf today. I want to read it again, just spontaneously. I have good memories of this book when I read at the age of 20 while I was working at a cinema, usually a closing shift. It was a close friend that I loved being around, and still do.
