Sudden Death Overtime by Steve Vernon

Sudden Death Overtime

4 stars****
I received a copy of this novella from the author in exchange for a review.
I am a huge paranormal romance fan but I also have a secret love for horror as well. So, even though it's fun to play with the nice vampires, every now and then it's also fun to step into the world of the ones that aren't so nice.
This is a great little taste of this author's writing style. And, at the end of this novella we get a small teaser of his book... Nothing to Lose - The Adventures of Captain Nothing. It is a great teaser and I feel pretty confident that I will need to read that book now.
Sudden Death Overtime is horror mixed with humor. You have a bunch of old guys who spend most of their time tending to their outdoor hockey rink, drinking and just hanging about. When they figure out that vampires have stalked into their town hiding themselves in a mysterious black bus, they decide to lure them to their outdoor hockey rink and hopefully bring down the vampires with their age old hockey skills and using some creative surprises involving garlic and holy water.
This is very short and sweet but very engaging... perfect to kill a couple of hours. If you are curious about whether or not you will like this author this is a great place to start!
