This was a fun if goofy twisted story. It had a lot of the tongue-in-cheek feel of a Piers Anthony Xanth novel or Spider Robinson Callahan's without the horrific puns. Two paranormal buddies Duke the werewolf and Earl the vampire are on a road trip and end up in a possible end of the world situation caused by a teenage girl reciting spells in Pig Latin.

Every part is played for laughs from the law enforcement in the town the humorously named Sheriff Marshall Kopp to the sorceress' minion whose one thought is pretty much what most teenaged boys think about.

It a fun light read and after reading the preview of the next book by this author I'm looking forward to another fun story.

I really enjoyed this book! It was a fun and fast read. I liked the humour and really, just all-in-all, liked the book! Vampires, werewolves, witches and ghosts always make for fun characters and I liked Martinez's twists on the traditional myths and rules for these creatures. the teenagers and narration and dialogue were just really funny. Though this is apparently a young adult book, some of the language and situations are a bit adult, so be warned for young readers. I am glad that I have purchased some other books by this fun writer and I am looking forward to reading them!
