Reviewed by Lisa



One minute Fred Tompkins is a normal office drone crossing the street, the next minute Fred is hit by a car driven by Daniel McKay, newly re-risen vampire.  Daniel feels really bad about hitting him so he turns Fred into a vampire too. 

At first, life as a vampire isnít so different other than the permanent liquid diet.   Fred would also like to get rid of his house guest/sire, but as problems and difficulties mount itís better that Danielís around, plus heís kind of growing on Fred.  Unfortunately for Fred, it seems he has something that other vampires covet and they donít intend to leave Fred alone, especially with a rogue like Daniel. 

The Vampire Fred: Wicked Game is a sexy, original tale of old conquests and new adventures.  Told in first person point of view Fred is sweet, naÔve, and completely in the dark about his abilities most of the time while Daniel is a charming scamp and a somewhat lousy sire.  Fred and Daniel are the reason The Vampire Fred: Wicked Game works, as well as the fresh take on vampires.  However, when the story takes Fred into his dreams and past lives it is sometimes difficult to keep everyone straight.  Too many nebulous characters stall the momentum of the story. The Vampire Fred: Wicked Game has some great moments and a fresh take on vampires, but a score card is needed at times.
