Blood Sick Vampire

Blood Sick Vampire is a fun adventure novel that depicts the biblical Cain as an unlikely hero struggling against the armies of Satan. He also just so happens to be a vampire. J.E. Serrano’s novel follows Cain from his tragic fall to his appearance during the Third Crusade, where he captivates and transforms Diego Torrolisimo. They soon realize that Diego may be more than your average vampire. The two of them, alongside Cain’s disciples (including a talking vampiric Bengal tiger named Shao-sin!), go on adventures and battle against Satan and his minions across the globe.

I had a lot of fun reading Blood Sick Vampire. Serrano has a gift for snappy dialogue, and his characters have a quirky wit about them. The way Cain and his companions casually insult demons spawned from hell with so much bravado is pretty amusing. I also appreciated the use of flashbacks to show the origins of the many different demons and vampires. The bureaucracy of hell is rather interesting, as punishments for failures seem to range from simply more hell to oblivion. The spiritual themes in the book follow a simple “good” versus “evil” formula, with the vampiric heroes using a little gray area in between.

Technically, Blood Sick Vampire suffers from a few issues. A solid proofreader would help with many punctuation and grammar mistakes. There’s also a section of three chapters that repeat themselves starting with “Cain Confronts Mmbyu” on page 96. Technical issues aside, J.E. Serrano weaves an entertaining tale. Much of the story reads like bible verses or old fables, which contrasts sharply with the modern dialog. I found this to be more charming than jarring.

Blood Sick Vampire is an unconventional twist on Biblical fiction and vampire stories. Readers will be entertained by the well-developed characters and unforgettable dialogue. It is the perfect book if you are looking for that “something different” to sit down with and go on an exciting adventure.
