Colt Harper is a rare breed. He’s a monster, but not just any monster, he’s a vampire cat and the last of his kind. Colt has an attitude problem, he doesn’t like humans and he may kill you for the simple act of petting him the wrong way. It’s illegal for a monster to hurt a human and when they do they get sentenced to community service. In Colt’s case he is being forced to work in a run down community theater with an anxiety ridden werewolf and a tickle monster. To make matters worse Colt is starting to have feelings for the woman in charge of the theater.
Why would a vampire cat suddenly be falling in love with a dirty disgusting human, it makes no sense. Things at the theater get even more complicated as Colt and the other monsters find out that they are being stalked by monster hunters called chasers. Can the monsters keep from killing and getting into more trouble? Can they keep the theater owner safe? Will they ever get to perform their play? These are just a few of the questions that you will have answered in Colt Harper Esteemed Vampire Cat by Tryolin Puxty.
If you ever wondered what a book would be like written from a cat’s point of view, then look no further. Colt Harper Esteemed Vampire Cat is a comedy with supernatural elements told from Colt’s point of view. If you’re a cat person you will enjoy this book because Colt talks and acts exactly like you would expect a cat to talk and act, if a cat could talk. While the story does seem a little thin, there are a lot of funny moments in this book and the characters in it are a lot of fun.
This is a fast paced read with a lot of ridiculous moments. I got the feeling that the author wrote this book specifically to make herself laugh and hopefully her audience too. Some of the funnier parts include Colt biting into a fat human and then thinking because he was fat he will have to walk him off later. In another scene Colt goes on a tirade about the ridiculousness of the tv show Lost which was pretty funny. This is the kind of book you buy if you are just looking for a fun read and you don’t want to think too much and since I love a good comedy I enjoyed it.
