Title: The Vampire Stalker
Author: Allison Van Diepen
I was given this book by a friend since she didn't like it. Nice thing to do right? Well it was since I ended up enjoying the book immensely even though it is far fetched.
Amy is a girl who like the rest of the world has an obsession with a book series about another version of Chicago. Unlike her friends she falls for the character Alexander Banks who is a handsome vampire hunter. (I mean everyone falls in love with a character in a book now and then right??) She dreams and wishes that he were real but she never expected for him to actually save her life. But one night it happens and she is totally confused by the sight of Alexander. How could Alexander and Vigo (the head vampire of Otherworld Chicago) get from their world to hers?
She helps Alexander out and in return he keeps hunting Vigo which was what he was going to do anyway but at least he has someplace to stay. As he gets closer to catching Vigo they have to protect the author of the books who knows Vigo's weaknesses. Once she is safe they have eyt another problem.
Amy's sister gets kidnapped by Vigo and he wants Alexander in exchange. Needless to say they save her sister just as two more characters come out of the book in search of Alexander. With help from the school librarian they find a way to get back to their world. Will Alexander, the guy she's fallen in love with, go back or will he stay with the girl he has fallen for? Will Vigo die or go back into their Chicago?
Sure the book is a bit predictable but it is still a good book! Not all predictable books are good but some are! I know not everyone will agree with me on this review but I really believe this is a good book!
