Fans of Charlaine Harris, Jim Butcher and Kim Harrison, take note. J. F. Lewis has arrived on the urban fantasy scene and he’s taking no prisoners in Welcome to the Void, SFBC’s exclusive 2-in-1 omnibus! Sure, he has vampires, werewolves, demons and other paranormal creatures you’ve come across in other stories, but they come from the wrong side of the tracks, they are not faithful to their partners, they kill indiscriminately...and they’re exactly the kind of monsters they should be; no sparkling vampires here, that’s for sure!
Welcome to Void City, where we first meet Eric in Staked: Strip club owner by night, vampire by, er, also night. He just turned his hot human girlfriend into a vamp—but now he’s got the hots for her younger sister. He has no memory of how he became a vampire in the first place. And when he kills a werewolf in self-defense, the whole pack comes howling for blood....
In ReVamped, Eric is in a bad way following the explosive conclusion of his battle with the big bad wolves. A little magic helps him rise up from the wreckage—but it also forces him to confront one of Void City’s most powerful demons (literally), as well as the demons of his own past (figuratively)....
With sick humor, depraved characters, graphic violence and questionable morals on display throughout, there’s just so much wrong with this series—but that’s exactly why it’s so much fun to read! You will have to finish just one more chapter, perhaps one more hour, just keep on going and
Enjoy the read.

So sorry I asked for this book. I wasn't sure, took the chance, and this is one of those times I came off losing. Sure won't buy another. Don't like anything about this book.

I have to like the characters to read a book. I can't stand any of the characters, could care less if they were all wiped out-even think they should be. There's a reason Dresden, Sookie, Rachel Morgan, Books and Braun, etc. are so popular and well loved. There is some good in them, they DO care about others besides themselves. I don't understand how this even made it into print. I'll avoid all this gys books for now on. But I'll continue reading my long standing favorites and be on the lookout for others to add to my list. (Like Iron Druid Chronicles so far.)

I don't know if I should include this book on my Christmas list or not. My Mom and I started exchanging exclusively books a few years ago for economic reasons--and boy does it save a lot of unpleasant hassles that were just too stressfull for enjoyable holidays--but I had never heard of this author before and hate to make a poor choice. HELP! Someone please do a review. Merry hohoho.
