Not all vampires are glamourous; nor do they all ooze sex appeal ? that's the premise of Catherine Jinks's latest YA novel, where a group of disparate vampires make the decision to stop killing humans. Obviously, such a course of action will not be easy, and our acrimonious lot decide to form a support group to help each overcome the many temptations and pitfalls that may befall them. But when one of their group is mysteriously turned to ashes, the group realises that they will have to put their differences aside and unite against this new threat. Will they be able to work together for the common good? The Reformed Vampire Support Group is a well-paced page turner; and that, coupled with Jinks's excellent tongue-in-cheek prose, will keep most readers glued until the very last page.
