Diary of a Wimpy Vampire: Prince of Dorkness by Tim Collins

On the Back of the Book

Transformed into a vampire at the awkward age of fifteen, Nigel Mullet will remain this age for ever, and must spend eternity struggling through adolescence.

In his latest hilarious diary, Nigel starts the new term as one of the most popular pupils in school, and he's finally got a girlfriend after more than eighty years of being single. But his life soon unravels when a new pupil, Jason, joins his school...

When Jason steals his girlfriend, Nigel vows to get revenge. But the more he discovers about Jason the more confused he gets. Who exactly is this mysterious new classmate? And how can Nigel win his true love back?

My Thoughts

This is a simple but very funny book. It's the follow up to Diary of a Wimpy Vampire. If I'm honest I thought that book one had a pretty solid ending and didn't need a sequel but apparently what do I know? Also I didn't think that this book was anywhere near as good as the first. The last 100 or so pages were extremely enteraining and reminded me of why I liked book 1 enough to buy this one though.

There's a new character in this one who is a bit of a rival for Nigel. The new character seems to be a bit dog-like, I think you can see where this is going.

The plot is a bit similar to book one and of there are any more planned then the author can't continue with the same plot over and over because eventually everyone will get bored but it was still very entertaning and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

My Rating

3.5 stars - I've marked this down due to the plot similarities between this book and its predecessor and the majority of this story being nowhere near as good as the last bit. I still think that if you've read book one then this is worth a read though.
