Publisher's Summary

There are reasons the undead fear the night...
Bill Ryder - gamer, geek, and legendary vampire - has woman troubles. The girl he wants is deadly to him. The girl who wants him is deadly to everyone else. He's trapped in the most lethal love triangle he can imagine and it's only going to get worse.
On the eve of war, The Icon - ancient foe of the vampire race - has arisen. Panic is about to break out within the undead ranks and Bill is caught smack dab in the middle of it. Destiny has placed them on a cataclysmic collision course, but there's just one small catch: he's in love with her.
Now he finds himself in a race against supernatural assassins to save the person who's fated to destroy him. Talk about being damned if you do...
Unsure of his allies and outnumbered by enemies, Bill must dig deep within himself and find the faith to succeed - because if he fails, it'll be more than just his social life in tatters.

Bill is starting to grow up, but just a little...

Would you listen to Holier Than Thou (The Tome of Bill) again? Why?

I would listen to this book again. This is mainly because it seems to be a bridge book for future novels. The character's are being developed a bit more which is good. The humor is fun, but you can't carry a series on the strength of that alone.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Holier Than Thou (The Tome of Bill)?

Anything with Gann. That character cracks me up.

What does Christopher John Fetherolf bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He doesn't have a great range of voices but he nails the main character dead on. I couldn't imagine anyone else reading this series atthis point.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No, but that was because I listened to the other three books back-to-back.

Any additional comments?

This book is a bit different from the others, but is a good read and seems to be developing the series for the future.

Blood, Bombs, and Flying Body Parts

The latest installment of the Tome of Bill continues to raise the bar for how much crap can be dumped on a poor geeky vampire. As a result, it's a good thing Bill doesn't have to breath because there isn't a snorkel long enough. Explosions have Bill dancing as fast as he can as he tries to stay undead for another day. Just when you figure there isn't anyone Bill hasn't driven to want him dead, his ultimate wedgie of bad luck and super anti-personnel powers manage to identify the few beings left on the planet that don't want to "Kill Bill" and alienates them. The World wants Bill and it wants him dead, really dead; like Monty Python Parrot dead.

This is a fast paced, action packed ireverent romp tripping the vampire geek-tastic. Bill's SMALL group of co-adventurers (friends would be stretching it in some cases), lead by Sally (a real femme fatale), navigate a world turned hostile where "safe house" seems to translate to "Ground Zero" for Bill. Bill's inner monologue and the witty banter between characters had me laughing out loud. It's got to be funny to get me to laugh out loud because people look at me strange when I do; but this book is funny and people did stare.

This tome ended on a cliff hanger so there has to be another one coming and I can't wait. Maybe the next one will have some characters dressed in red to clear things up a bit.
