Prince of Dorkness: More Notes from a Totally Lame Vampire
Sequel to Notes from a Totally Lame Vampire
by Tim Collins
* * * Stars (Pretty good)
Nigel Mullet was living the sweet life of a fully-empowered teen vampire – until he lost his girlfriend, Chloe. They had a difference of opinion on whether to turn her or not (he thought not, she thought WHY not?). Suddenly his strength, speed, charisma, and good looks disappeared over night. Meanwhile, Chloe started dating a real clod (in Nigel’s opinion). Unfortunately for her, he was a werewolf, and she accidentally caught the werewolf bug and became supernatural herself. Although she and Nigel are supposed to be mortal enemies (werewolves and vampires have a long-standing feud), they actually get along much better now that they’re no longer dating. But when Nigel’s family discovers they are living among a pack of werewolves, they decide to move to Scotland. What will be in store for Nigel?
Nigel’s journal is pretty entertaining, even though it’s definitely self-indulgent. I didn’t find this sequel (to “Notes from a Totally Lame Vampire) quite as funny as the first book, but I think fans will still enjoy it. Not really sure how the emotional lives of vampires in this “world” work – both Nigel and his little sister seem to be trapped at the age/emotional maturity they were when they were changed. Do they ever grow up? Are they not capable of it?
