This Charming Man (Stranger Times #2)This Charming Man by C.K. McDonnell
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

For those in the rear seats, let me make this very clear: Vampires don't exist. They have never existed. If you see something like a vampire, it's really some kind of super powerful supernatural taking a piss on you. So let me repeat: Vampires don't exist.

This continuation of the Stranger Times series is, I think, even better than the first. Why? Because it's a chaotic mess. Indeed, it feels like a total pantser novel written by a magpie with a penchant for warped sensibilities and a need to fire blunderbusses and curse up a storm.

That, and this b-rate rag by the name of Stranger Times, far from just suckering the easily gullible, keeps getting embroiled in some weird-ass supernatural adventures. It makes it kinda hard to make stuff up when the real thing keeps intruding on their lives.

Quite funny. The characters are a real hoot, too.
