This is the follow-up to Nancy Haddock's La Vida Vampire, which I really enjoyed (in fact, I awarded it five stars
in my review). In that book we met Francesca Marinelli, a vampire who has just emerged after being trapped underground for two hundred years. Her love interest, policeman Deke Saber, along with several other characters, made it an enjoyable read.
Last Vampire Standing is different. I can't speak for the whole book - I wasn't able to finish it - but having read three-quarters of the way, through I was still no nearer to discerning a real point to the book. There
are a couple of new characters (including the vastly un-funny vampire comic Jo-Jo); the supernatural cat makes another appearance, as do various other characters from the previous story, but it all feels completely directionless. It's unusual for me to give up on a book, but I found this one so boring and pointless that I couldn't face completing it. A shame after the enjoyment of the first story; I fear Nancy Haddock wrote this one rather quickly without thinking hard enough about what new things she could actually say.
