What if the characters in a vampire novel left their world--and came into yours?

Amy is in love with someone who doesn't exist: Alexander Banks, the dashing hero in a popular series of vampire novels. Then one night, Amy meets a boy who bears an eerie resemblance to Alexander. In fact, he IS Alexander, who has escaped from the pages of the book and is in hot pursuit of a wicked vampire named Vigo. Together, Amy and Alexander set out to track Vigo and learn how and why Alexander crossed over. But when she and Alexander begin to fall for each other, Amy wonders if she even wants him to ever return to the realm of fiction.

(summary taken from Goodreads

Have you ever fallen so in love with a book character that you wish more than anything that he or she could somehow come to life? Well, that's how it is for Amy except that the arrival of the brooding vampire hunter Alexander takes her completely off guard.

This book is hilarious! It's a quick and fun read that I can undoubtedly relate to, because I have to admit that I often dream about favored book characters coming to life. Despite the dark cover, this novel is actually a very light and entertaining read. It has a down-to-earth heroine that's easy to connect with, a fast-paced plot that flows effortlessly together, and a unique romance that I absolutely adore.

I love the development of Amy and Alexander's relationship throughout the book; it's so easy to see why they're attracted to each other. Allison van Dieper does an excellent job explaining how a few book characters can suddenly come to life!

All in all, The Vampire Stalker is a captivating novel for anyone who has ever had a crush on a fictional character. Let me just say that knowing Alexander Banks is a book character in a book in a book doesn't lessen my attraction to him at all! ;) 

BUY or BORROW?: This book is a must-have for anyone and everyone who has ever been (or is) in love with a book character like Alexander! :) It was so much fun to read that I would definitely read it again is if could.



  1. You know, after seeing so many reviews for this book I still had no idea that the boy love interest is a character in a book in a book. That is wicked cool. Sort of reminds me of Warp (except instead of a boy out of book it's a boy out of a tapestry)

    good review. I was going to pass this one up but not anymore LOL :)
