Michael is a waif in eyeliner who’s determined to wipe vampires off the face of the earth. Wild Bill’s got the hots for Michael and will stop at nothing to go home with him. Forget about moonlit castles and windswept moors. These bad boys haunt all-night diners and cheap motels, cut-rate department stores and long, lonely stretches of the interstate. Ride along with Wild Bill and Michael as the twists and turns of Channeling Morpheus for Scary Mary unfold in America’s heartland.

My Review of the Audiobook

stars-five

I read the ebooks first and loved all five of them, so I was excited to listen to the audiobook. (See my original review below.)

Gomez Pugh is a fabulous narrator who did a marvelous job with this audio version. He brought the five stories to life for me. His voice is perfectly suited to Michael and Wild Bill’s characters. Michael came across as sexy and sensible, someone you sympathized with and wanted to succeed in his vampire-hunting mission. I loved Wild Bill’s raspy voice, which matched my expectation of this chain-smoking vamp who falls in love with a human. I liked that each novella alternated POV and hearing the story told by the main characters added an extra dimension to the series. It worked exceptionally well with the audio version, helping me to picture the scenes and interaction with clarity.

My Original Review of the Story

These first five stories follow the adventures of Michael, goth and would-be vampire hunter, who is seeking revenge for the death of his friend, Scary Mary. In his pursuit of ‘bad vampires’ he meets and falls for Wild Bill and in the process discovers much of his previous beliefs about vampires are unfounded. He also learns the best ways to dispatch these creatures of the night.

The smitten pair share many erotic scenes that are not just sex for sex sake and their affection for each other is demonstrated outside of the bedroom, bathroom, forest floor, picnic bench, van… during their nomadic-like journey.

The series is well written and a very enjoyable read. JCP builds up a melancholic atmosphere in her writing, creating a believable yet dark fantasy world. She has you guessing what’s going to happen next throughout—will Michael be safe in his new chosen lifestyle and will Wild Bill resist draining the young man of his lifeblood?

Michael and Wild Bill’s story is told from alternating points of view as the series unfolds, so we get to see inside the mind of the vampire as well as the young vampire hunter, and as the story progresses, we find out a little more of their backstory and who these character are.
