Book Review: Vickie Van Helsing by Solomon.J. Inkwell

With all the usual suspects re-vamped (excuse the pun) Vickie Van Helsing is the tale of a 21st century high-school heroine with some unusual DNA. When blood-sucking visitors come to town, guess who has to save the day.
A riotous roller-coaster ride with lots of tongue-in-cheek humor from Solomon.J.Inkwell AKA screenwriter and author James Grea. Vickie Van Helsing asks you to suspend disbelief for a while (where DID all that vampire goop in the gymnasium go?) and enjoy the ride. A well told story, would love to see it on the big screen.

Fate didn‘t bless me with perfect looks, a pristine fashion sense, or undeniable charm, but it did bless me with the smarts—well, smarts and a little something extra I wasn‘t aware of at the time. Frankly, if I had to choose a gift, I‘d choose brains. The Populars are going to learn that looks fade, but smarts last forever. Populars—that‘s what I call them: the ones who are seemingly perfect in every way. Well, let me tell you, they aren‘t.
So, my real name? Okay, get ready for it, because you‘re going to laugh. Wait for it …
Vickie Van Helsing.
See, you‘re laughing, and that‘s rude, dude. Yes, and I do mean the monster-hunting, holy-water-sprinkling Van Helsing. Okay, so maybe the name Van Helsing doesn‘t refer to the super-hot archangel Hugh Jackman badass, but it still means warrior of the wicked. Vampires? Monsters? Oh, yeah, they were out there, and they were all over us, but I‘m hoping that I‘ve taken care of them.
Because more than stupid people, I hate dead people.
