There are several attempts at humor. It is all recycled jokes that you have heard before and where not that funny the first time. You know in the story if the main character says "It will be easy all I will have to do is..." that something is going to go wrong. Don't worry once he pops out his contacts and looks at you he has won. This is his answer time after time after time.
In one chapter an old vampire tells another old vampire not to get over confident. The warned vampire acts over confident and tells the other vampire that he is paranoid. Of course in the next chapter the over confident vampire dies. Jeez, didn't see that coming.
If you are a fan of The Monster Hunter series you will probably like this.

I bought this book because Amazon.com suggested that people who bought/liked the Dresden files would like/buy this book.
I have to say, I did like the book, but not to the same level as I like our semi dark wizard detective. But then again, this is first book in the series while the Dresden I know and love has been well developed over many titles.
Further, I liked this book enough to shell out another $25 to give the second in the series a try. So, as Amazon said, if you like the Dresden files, give it a shot. You might find our spunky vampire detective with a little humor thrown in will satisfy you reading needs.
PS. For anyone who is worried by the title that this book would be overtly sexual, or such. There is a minor sex theme and sex is spoken about by the characters as adults would speak about sex (if they are not British and therefore unable to say the word), but there is no truely graphical scenes nor could you classify this as pornographic at any point.
