An ancient entity roams the streets of a Southern California city. He "borrows" other living mortal bodies to perpetuate his journey in this world. During these sometimes brief tenures he interacts with the "living" often for the betterment of those he befriends. Somewhat world-weary after six hundred years of borrowed mortality he confronts an imam at a local mosque. His oral sex demonstration in the mosque is perfectly reasonable and the predictable outrage of the imam, absolutely unjustified. This unusual and debatable mindset, is the catalyst for the promised death and destruction retribution that inevitably follows. There is hope to be found in the hearts and minds of simple people. The falsehood of religious doctrine, east and west is examined. Beneath the main story runs an undercurrent of other lives, each in their own way reacting to the vampires touch. A child molester, gardener, prostitute, waitress and meter maid all contribute meaningfully to the story. The vampire has a Niece, spoiled, willful, confusing, loving and exasperating to all who meet her. Through it all is hope and love, redemption is at hand but not from religion,God or sex. It is by DESIGN.
4.5 Boundless Stars
This book is definitely true to its title; readers will agree that the Vampire, Gaytooth, is truly a most unusual vampire. Gaytooth may be unusual, but he is also likeable. I loved this book, I loved the characters and their relationships with one another, the exchanged banter gave them a humorous personality as well. The writing was good, and the story was unique. This is a quick and smooth read; I highly recommend The Vampire Gaytooth: A Most Unusual Vampire to all readers.
I received a paperback copy of this book in exchange for an honest review; I honestly think it’s a strong 4.5 Boundless Star book.
