ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT
So, you want to date an undead, vampire, maybe a werewolf? This wonderful book has all of the answers for you. Written in a Cosmo style, magazine form, this witty little coffee table book will have your friends wondering about you if you leave it laying around. It really has a lot of meaning if you are a fan of Showalter's paranormal romances. This is also a great reference book for new authors wanting to do some quick world building and better understand the creatures of the dark. I don't think I have laughed like this in a long time!
If you have followed Jill and Gena around the web, it has all of the smart and witty humor they are known for and the best parts in the whole book are the PICTURES! Each otherworldly guy is shown in (almost) full detail! I have a whole new appreciation for Zombies. Seriously, I never knew zombies looked this good. Those illustrations are worth the price of the book alone. There are also some interesting recipes included which I don't know if I will have the nerve to try since most of the drink concoctions involve a lot of alcohol.
The video below is a bit long, but it gives you a great sense of exactly how they put this magazine together!
