This book seems to conclude Moore's vampire trilogy, a series that started out so much better than it finished. I hate waiting for his next book to come out. Christopher Moore is hysterical, and every character is well developed and rings true, and Susan Bennett is brilliant. Bite Me is a pretty damn funny book. I was fully entertained for the entirety of the book.
