Authors Adrienne Barbeau and Michael Scott have created a vivid world where vampires walk the streets of Hollywood - a place strange enough for them to hide out in plain sight and make lives for themselves among America's cinematic royalty. The characters are well-written and full of depth and dimension, and the story is dense with a creative mysterious twist. The pacing of the novel makes it impossible to put down until the very last word, and the dialogue is smart and witty.

Vampyres of Hollywood is fun, fun, FUN! It is full of gory good details and has a certain flair that sets it apart from some of the other novels in the paranormal/vampire genre. Vampyres of Hollywood is extremely entertaining. Full of suspense and clever little references to vampires and movies, Vampyres of Hollywood does not disappoint. ( )

50 page rule applied to this one though I gave it a good 100. I think it may be one of those better listened to then read. ( )

A fun little name-dropping, slipping in gore, predictable romp through Hollywood. I liked it. And I'll remember it, which is more than I can say for many books that I've read. It's king of like life - just don't take it too seriously. ( )

Wasn't expecting such gory details, yet I appreciated the horror elements of the book as I am a fan of scary movies and delighted in imagining the scenes. Great read for Halloween! ( )

it was a lot of fun to read....and what a great movie to be made if it was not done high budget and with an indie scream queen....and if you know any of the players in hollywood....it is a real laugh......not a serious book.....but totally worth an afternoon or evening of fun!! ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0312367228, Hardcover)

Hollywood, California: three gruesome deaths within two weeks and every one of them a major star - an Oscar winner, an ingénue, and an action hero.  A serial killer is working through the Hollywood A-list and celebrities are running scared.

Each crime scene is worthy of a classic horror movie, and all three victims share a connection to the powerful scream queen, Ovsanna Moore.  The stunning and formidable Moore is the legendary head of a Hollywood studio, as well as the writer and star of seventeen blockbuster horror films (and a few that went straight to DVD).

She’s also a 500 year old vampyre… but this is Hollywood after all, and no one ever looks their age.

Beverly Hills Police Detective Peter King knows a lot about the City of Angels, but he certainly doesn’t know that most of the famous actors in town are actually an established network of vampires. Or that secretive and seductive Ovsanna Moore happens to be their CEO.

Moore and King may be from opposite sides of the Hollywood Hills, but both have something to gain by stopping the killer who the tabloids have dubbed the Cinema Slayer.  Ovsanna must protect her vampire legacy and her production schedule, while King just wants to keep his Beverly Hills beat as blood-free as possible.  But when the horror queen and the cop with the movie star looks form an unholy alliance, sparks fly and so do the creatures of the night.

Film, television and Broadway star Adrienne Barbeau and New York Times bestselling author Michael Scott have teamed up to deliver this sexy, scary, and deliciously clever novel full of Hollywood glamour, behind-the-scenes secrets, and the truly bloodthirsty reality of Tinseltown.  So grab some popcorn and some holy water and lose yourself in the high-stakes, back-stabbing world of the Vampyres of Hollywood.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:09:57 -0400)

Ovsanna Moore is a Hollywood siren, horror film legend and cut-throat producer. She also happens to be a vampire. When those around her start dropping dead, she teams up with Peter King, a cynical cop who's seen it all. When the horror queen and the hunky cop form an unholy alliance to fight the undead, sparks fly.… (more)
