Spoiler warning: these posts are (obviously) going to be spoiler heavy, so if you haven’t read the book yet, but plan to, be careful.
Also, I don’t want to spoil things from people who are reading along with us, so please don’t talk about things that happen in latter chapters. Once these chapter-by-chapter posts are done, I’ll do one last, whole-book post where we can talk about anything that didn’t fit into a particular chapter.
If you don’t have the book, you can get it right now in digital format. And if you order the paperback, you can get a free digital copy. (Also: let me know if you have a problem getting that digital copy. It’s worked for everyone that’s tried so far, but I still don’t entirely trust it.)
Angelica: Hi Michael! I’m so glad my plan worked and you killed your little strumpet and now you’re mine all mine and no longer a vegetarian!
Michael McKenna: Super rage-fueled Sire killing powers activate!
Alexis DuPree: This would be a good time to murder some vampires!
Garret: Good thing they kept our crossbows around!
Evan: Hey, I’m no longer mind-whammied! Super magic-using Engineer flamethrower powers activate!
The Vampire of St. Troy: Hey, let’s kill Michael!
Michael McKenna: Hey, did you know that drinking a really old vampire’s blood makes you really strong?
The Vampire of St. Troy: :-(
Michael McKenna: Hi Caitlin I’m sorry Caitlin and also I think you should drink my blood Caitlin because that would be a much better idea than dying Caitlin!
Caitlin Manning: Nom nom nom tasty vampire blood nom!
Michael McKenna: :-)
Caitlin Manning: Dies.
Michael McKenna: :-(
Evan: Um, Michael? I maybe kinda sort accidentally set the building on fire, and we should probably leave your dead girlfriend to save ourselves now.
Michael McKenna: Oh, she’s not dead. I just turned her into a vampire.
The Plot: Thickens.
