The Vampire Stalker Review

Author: Allison Van Diepen
Release Date: June 1st 2011
Publisher: Point
Source: Bought/ Nook


What if the characters in a vampire novel left their world--and came into yours?
Amy is in love with someone who doesn't exist: Alexander Banks, the dashing hero in a popular series of vampire novels. Then one night, Amy meets a boy who bears an eerie resemblance to Alexander. In fact, he IS Alexander, who has escaped from the pages of the book and is in hot pursuit of a wicked vampire named Vigo. Together, Amy and Alexander set out to track Vigo and learn how and why Alexander crossed over. But when she and Alexander begin to fall for each other, Amy wonders if she even wants him to ever return to the realm of fiction.

Okay let me start off this review with expressing my full fledged feelings about this book... ready for it?.... ok here we go... BAHHHHHH!

I went into this book thinking wow... that sounds like a really fabulous concept. I mean how many of us have fallen in love with a character in a book *cough* Edward *cough*, and wished with some part of our being that they were real? I know that I have and with reading a lot of reviews, I know a lot of other people feel that way too about their favorite books. So I thought wow... I have to read this, it is a really interesting concept with a delicious plot line. Um...Yeah...No!

I have never in my life read a book, that I was praying that the end would come soon. It's not that it was poorly written, but it reminded me of a teenager's view being written by someone that is 90. It was annoying. It reminded me of someone mocking Twilight fans. It is about a girl who falls in love with a vampire hunter from her favorite book and then he comes into her world. Delusional is what comes to mind. It didn't seem as though he was real and in her world at all. It reminded me of a young girl who is schizophrenic and seeing things. Not my idea of a fabulous book.

I am actually a little bit disappointed that I actually paid money for this book. If it weren't for the authors uncanny attention to detail, I wouldn't have given this a rating at all. I have loved other books by this author... Just not this one, but this book also won't deter me from reading her other books.


  1. Dang, that's too bad it wasn't any good. Like you, the synopsis piqued my interest. It sounded like such a great concept! But I'll probably skip this one now. Thanks for the review :)
