Get A Quick Bite from Amazon. I just don’t get it. Lissi, like the rest of the family as well as vampires in general, is very attractive. What I meant by “showing vs telling” was that I want to be shown what the characters look like versus just telling the audience that they’re attractive. I know people will laugh when I say this, but it didn’t feel very believable I know I may talk a little more than is healthy normal about the coming robot quixk.
The plot was silly, the writing was baaaad someone get her a thesaurus!

It was a light and fun read: It was so completely obvious that the perpetrator might qyick well have been walking around with “I’m a Vampire Hunter” tattooed across their forehead yet Lissianna didn’t once think to question their weird behaviour.
