Vampire Landlord by Glenn Stevens is a quick, pithy read that can be navigated in just over an hour or so. If you are looking for a vampire story with a difference and with some cunning twists, this may well be the perfect story for you. The landlord Annette was fascinating and the character showed a ton of potential. The author's style is relaxed and conversational, making the read quick and easy but I still felt there was room for more meat on the bones of this story. That having been said, in the context of a short story in this genre it was both satisfying and easily consumed. I particularly enjoyed the freezer room attached to Annette's bedroom and would have loved the author to explore that more fully. If you are looking for an entertaining read in the vampiric genre, this book will definitely suit your needs.
