When overweight treadmill salesman Reginald Baskin finally meets a co-worker who doesn't make fun of him, it's just his own bad luck that tech guy Maurice turns out to be a thousand-year-old vampire.
And when Maurice turns
Reginald to save his life, it's just Reginald's own further bad luck
that he wakes up to discover he's become the slowest, weakest, most
out-of-shape vampire ever born, doomed to "heal" to his corpulent self
for all of eternity.
As Reginald struggles with the downsides of
being a fat vampire -- too slow to catch people to feed on, mocked by
those he tries to glamour, assaulted by his intended prey and left for
undead -- he discovers in himself rare powers that few vampires have…
and just in time too, because the Vampire Council might just want his
head for being an inferior representative of their race.
Vampire is the story of an unlikely hero who, after having an imperfect
eternity shoved into his grease-stained hands, must learn to turn the
afterlife's lemons into tasty lemon danishes. From Goodreads.
This was quite funny with a different take on vampires. In most other vampire books, vampires basically become beautiful when they are turned but not in this one. Reginald has to use his other hidden powers to survive.
