“An excellent start to a series”

Written on: 13/02/2022 by plappen (122 reviews written)

Vampyrian Gateway, Richard C. Christensen, 2021, ISBN 978173711016

Peter Bridges, and his sister, Andie (short for Andrea), act like typical teenagers with the usual teenage problems (the opposite sex, school, getting on each other's nerves). They have been Chosen as problem-solvers between Earth and the Attached Worlds. These are several parallel worlds, populated by beings like vampires, elves and gnomes.

A real vampire knocks on their front door, and drops off a baby vampire for the pair to baby-sit. Aside from it not being in their job description, they are soon attacked by a pair of people dressed as ninjas. The baby has been kidnapped. While Andie waits for Vampire Mom (who seems to have disappeared) to return, Peter investigates the few clues that they have.

He meets a group called Friends of Bram Stoker (FOBS). It turns out to be more than just a vampire-killing computer game. Peter travels to Vampyria, the vampire world, to warn them of a major attack from Earth. Will Georg, the leader of Vampyria, believe a mere human? To vampires, humans are a little higher than plants on the evolutionary scale. Is Vampire Baby ever found?

This is an excellent start to a series, with good writing through out. It is just weird enough, without being too weird. It may be intended as a Young Adult novel, but adults will also enjoy it.
