VAMPARAZZI by Laura Resnick


Vamparazzi (Esther Diamond, #4)Vamparazzi by Laura Resnick
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Okay, reading the next book in the Esther Diamond series is becoming one of my favourite things to do this year. I always look forward to catching up with her hilarious friends and dark world.

Esther is busy performing in a very popular off-Broadway show called The Vampyre, when her life is hit with a new dose of danger. Not only does she have to deal with the wannabe vampire leading man, but also with his violent crazed fans, and there might actually be a real vamp killing people too. If only she didn't have to add her ex-almost-boyfriend to this confusing mix...

What a bloody good time this installment turned out to be! 😂

It was only a matter of time before Esther found herself in the middle of some vampiric action, and her encounter with these bloodsucking fiends certainly didn't disappoint. Like the previous books in this series, a very familiar creature and all its tropes becomes something completely different. I love the worldbuilding in this series so much!

It was so cool how Esther was working on a play adapted from a lesser known classic tale. I've actually read The Vampyre and found it quite disappointing and dull, but they did a much better job adapting it to the stage in this book. 😁

Esther is just one of those characters who wants to get on with her life but can't seem to stop attracting strange situations. And dangerous people. As well as the guy she so obviously craves but for noble reasons is trying to keep away from her. The way all of these zany things are dealt with always turn out to be so entertaining, hilarious, yet gruesome as well. The villains in this series are clever enough to stay in the shadows until they can no longer hide, and never disappoint. And the revelations in this book were unexpected but great.

It was also really cool to find out what Max's issue with Lithuanians is. Very cool.

This is such a fun series and I can't wait to read more!
