Amy Mah Vampire - A Review

Author's Description:

Today's world is difficult for everyone, especially teenagers. They face the stresses of school, deciding whom to date, and the biggie of sex, just to name a few. Imagine all of those things ten times worse, and you might get an idea of what it's like being a living, breathing teenage vampire.

At last, the world can read about the life of a girl with good teeth, her problems with strong sunlight that gave her spots , and sunblock that made her hair go yucky and produced more spots. Yes, sunlight was dangerous, as she could be the first teenager in history to die from terminal acne!

In her everyday life, older vampires expected her to walk about at night in the traditional female uniform, a see-through, 18th century nightdress, without undies!

Well, this female vampire knew why the cold winds blowing along the corridors were called, "male winds," so she wore her see-through nightdress over jeans and a very thick jumper.

To be sure that people would still know she was a vampire, the jumper had a very large, pink bat on it. And as to guys, well, it was normal for a girl to dream about guys; she just wished the dreams could have involved chocolates and holding hands, not leaping out at someone, ripping off his shirt, and demanding to know what blood type he was (at least not on the first date).


Amy is not your typical teenager. When she gets attacked by a rapist, her blood lust kind of takes over and the would be rapist is dead. This starts her journey. She meets Phabian, who can't quite figure out where Amy came from. Amy seems to be different from all the other vampires, so Phabian wants to keep her existence quiet. However, Amy is incapable of staying out of trouble. She is constantly getting into scrapes that always end up in death, destruction, and loss of memories. 

This story is action packed and fun. The characters are real and you get intrenched in their emotions and lives. The dynamic of the vampires way of living is well written. It is a breath of fresh air from the usual vampire books. I look forward to the next installment.

About the Author

The Author Amelia Mah is a 20 something snarky, sarcastic, and cynical author who has a very popular blog of how she sees the world from the point of view of a modern teenage vampire.

Following the success of her first book Fangs Rule A Girls Guide to Being a Vampire she had now expanded the idea of life as a teenage vampire into a full novel Amelia has given her avatar her own name so you can see the world first hand from a very bored teenage vampire that has been forced to remain a teenager for far too long. She may have very good teeth and the ability to hang from ceilings but life is far from easy.

 Author's Discription

The unknown world of boys has been a problem that has plagued girl-kind for many a century. What do you say to them? Which ones should you avoid? And what is going on in that little brain of theirs when they look at you? If only they came with a manual or something...Well now they do! A lovely step by step guide that's split into easy stages, taking you from finding the right kind of boy for you right up to ending a relationship and starting all over again.

Boys can be a bit tricky to understand so it's best to liken them to something most girls know a little bit more about. Like shoes. Yes, boys are a little like shoes. Why? Well...They can be useful. But mainly...They are nice to look at. Getting the right one can be a lovely accessory to an outfit. There are times when you couldn't do without them. And there are times when you'd rather do without them. Get the wrong ones and they can hurt.

This book is a fun read and I wish I had had one when I was a teenager. Find out more at
