Curse of the Seven 70s is a unique and witty vampire story.
The protagonist, Cassandra, moved into her Great Aunt’s Cottage after being dumped by her cheating boyfriend, Howard. Although, Cassandra, swore that she was through with men forever, she still longed for her boyfriend. That all changed, however, when Varo, a charming vampire, materialized before her eyes in her Aunt’s basement. Cassandra knew that she was probably crazy, but she couldn’t help falling for the handsome vamp. Life was not easy for the two of them, especially when Varo’s long lost sadist brother, Vlad Dracula, showed up.
It took me a bit to get into the story because I didn’t care for Cassandra. But once Cassandra found Varo the story really took off for me. I did find some inconsistencies, but because the story was so entertaining and enjoyable it was easy to overlook them.
If you are looking for a unique fun vampire story, then Curse of the Seven 70s is the book for you.

I received this book free of charge in exchange for an honest review.
The Little Book of Horrors by Lacey Lane is a perfect title for this book. This book consists of three short stories, each tale creepier than the one prior, making it the perfect Halloween read for adults. It’s not for the faint-hearted, though. Prepare to be totally creeped out.

Language in the Blood is a unique and entertaining vampire story. Twenty-year-old Cameron Blair began his life as a vampire after being shot during WWI. His maker, unfortunately, didn’t stick around to teach him how to live his new life. Cameron had to learn about being a vampire through trial and error and, as a result, he made a lot of mistakes. One painful lesson that Cameron ended up learning the hard way was never to fall in love with a human. Angela Lockwood’s tale takes the reader around the world as it follows Cameron’s ever-changing residences and identities. The book alternates between the 1900s and the twenty-first century. I found Cameron’s obsession with Facebook and a vampire chat-room to be, cleverly written and quite funny.
Although, Cameron is self-serving, manipulative and even ruthless at times, his charm and quick wit makes him a likable character. Language in the Blood is not your typical vampire story. Cameron would rather kill a human than deal with their irritating behavior, but to keep a low profile, he does his best not to. To curb his ever increasing appetite for human blood, though, Cameron develops a taste for dogs, cows, and even an occasional horse when necessary.
This story is well-written with dark humor, witty dialogue, intriguing characters and a meticulously crafted plot. Kudos, to Angela Lockwood for writing such a compelling and entertaining tale. Anyone who loves a good vampire story, look no further, Language in the Blood is the book for you.

Murderous Little Darlings is an enjoyable, and well-written vampire novella. It is also the beginning of what is sure to be a great paranormal series.
Marcus, Rocco, and Juliana are beautiful triplets, almost angelic; some would say. They were also, accused of committing murder.
Marcus, the oldest of the triplets, was caught attacking and biting a young boy. While being interrogated, Marcus explained to the officers that he was only doing what was in his nature. No one believed, of course, the hogwash story that Marcus tried to spin about being a vampire, that was, until he disappeared.
A couple of officers didn’t want to admit that the boy was unnerving them. But, when several of their peers were found dead, with their throats ripped out, panic and disbelief spread through the station like a virus.
I’ll be anxious to read more of this unique series. I love a good vampire story, and I want to know more about these little devils. For vampire lovers, Murderous Little Darlings will be a treat.
