A reluctant vampire hunter, stalking New York City as only a scorned bride can.
Elle Dupree has her life all figured out: first a wedding, then her Ph.D., then swank faculty parties where she’ll serve wine and cheese and introduce people to her husband the lawyer.
But those plans disintegrate when she walks in on a vampire draining the blood from her fiancé Greg. Horrified, she screams and runs--not away from the vampire, but toward it, brandishing a wooden letter opener.
As she slams the improvised stake into the vampire’s heart, a team of black-clad men bursts into the apartment. Turning around to face them, Elle discovers that Greg’s body is gone—and her perfect life falls apart.
Elle has her life all figured out and her plans are on schedule until one night when she finds a vampire sucking the life out of her fiancé Greg. That night EVERYTHING changed. That night her fiancé became a blood thirsty vampire and she became a vampire hunter - a really kick ass vampire hunter!
“It’s never easy to see an ex for the first time after you’ve broken up. Seeing an ex for the first time after he’s been turned into a bloodthirsty evil creature of the night is possibly even less easy.”
I totally LOVED Legally Undead! From the very first page, I knew this was not going to be your typical vampire story. Elle is totally awesome! She is smart, has a witty and sarcastic humor , and is just your average girl thrown into a not so average situation. She is not one to run away screaming when confronted by a vampire. Nope, all you get is a squeak as she gets down and dirty with her wood letter opener in hand, ready to inflict damage on any evil vampire that crosses her path!
"Have I mentioned how much it sucks (no pun intended) to be hunted by a vampire? Ruins your whole day"
There is so much to love about this book - humor, action, mystery and a small bit of romance. Ms. Collins has written a vampire story that is a breath of fresh air and I can't wait to read more of this highly entertaining and addictive series. If you love vampires then you NEED to read this book.....it's a MUST read!
My rating: 5 out of 5 stars
