"It's a hot August morning in 1963. All over the rural town of Grandville, tacked to power poles and trees, taped to store windows, flyers have appeared announcing the one-night-only performance of The Traveling Vampire Show. The promised highlight of the show is the gorgeous Valeria, the only living vampire in captivity.

For three local teenagers, two boys and a girl, this is a show they can't miss. Even though the flyers say no one under eighteen will be admited, they're determined to find a way. What follows is a story of friendship and courage, temptation and terror, when three friends go where they shouldn't go, and find much more than they ever expected."

This was a new author for me, but I enjoyed his work. The book continued to build on the suspense, which did move rather slowly in the beginning, so that towards the end I could barely put it down.

The rest of the story contained more than just a horror though, and for me, that made the beginning or slower parts of the horror story better than they would be otherwise. For it's also a coming-of-age story, three teenagers&mdashtwo boys and a girl, and their struggles with friendship, loyalty, and even raging hormones. ;)

I've PMed gwendy for her address and will get this in the mail to her shortly.

**UPDATE 9/14: Mailed out to gwendy on 9/15/05 via Media Mail.

eh, i've been working on this one for a while and i've decided it's time to put it down. normally i would trudge through to the end, but i've decided my tbr pile has reached its breaking point and it's time to move on to something else.

that said, i have enjoyed what i've read. i've found the characters to be very honest and real. what bugs me though, is that fact that the author takes 400 pages to say what could be done in 200. the difference is filled by every movement made by every character throughout every moment.

thanks for sharing! wish i had the time to hold on til the suspense begins..

posting shortly to next--

This wasn't one of my favorite Laymon books. I did enjoy the read, I just thought alot was left unsaid and some parts could have been explained better. I did enjoy the characters in the book.

Received in the New Year's Eve mail. Just in time for the new year's list! I'll be reading this one in tandem with the book I am currently into so I can pass it along to the next reader ASAP. Can't wait to start...

I seem to be having the same problems that gwendy had with this one. Everything is so drawn out but not building and it isn't even evening yet. I just can't hang on... I suppose I was hoping for something more like the "Cirque du Freak" series. I've PMed indigorage for an address and with luck it will hit the road again ASAP.

Thanks for including me!
