Primetime TV Book Reviews

Love Bites (Vampyres of Hollywood) book coverLove Bites (Vampyres of Hollywood) by Adrienne Barbeau

 Review by Suzanne

This is a fun little book to read if you like fantasy, horror, or that sort of thing. It's the second book in a series, but you don't have to have read the first book to get what's going on. Adrienne Barbeau is an actress and horror movie (and TV!) veteran. I used to love her when I watched "Maude" on TV in the 70's. Her character was very unusual in that she was not only a liberated, well-spoken, educated woman, but she wasn't whiny or needy or really messed up. That was very hard to find back then, especially on sitcoms. She was "normal" and yet a strong, independent woman. I always liked that about her, even though I was too young to really know what those words meant.

The first book, Vampyres of Hollywood, Miss Barbeau wrote with author Michael Scott, but this second one she wrote all on her own. She also wrote her autobiography. She does a fine job on "Love Bites", and it's clear that she has learned her craft.

The book is about an ancient vampire, Osvanna, who is also a Hollywood movie producer and actress. She has many friends that are both human and vampire (mostly the latter), including old movie stars that are now vampires, like Orson Welles and Rudy Valentino. She is dating a cop, Peter, that she met in the first book. They fight against evil creatures that threaten her or kill humans.

In these books, there isn't a whole lot of difference between vampires and werewolves. The vampires can shape-change, too, and not just into bats. It's a little different, in that respect, than most vampire books/tv shows/movies.

The book is kind of like Jackie Collins combined with Anne Rice (only a lot easier to read). It is fun and has a lot of sex, mystery, and romance thrown in with the vampire stuff. I look forward to reading her other books.

You can also catch Ms. Barbeau on "General Hospital" right now on ABC.
