Synopsis: Sixteen-year-old Lola is a daredevil. She likes playing hooky, making out with bad boy Everett James, and stealing cars. The reason behind all of her rebellious antics? Because she can. But what can one girl do against a horde of murderous vampires?

Aided by her sometimes sober father, her best friend Travis, and Maximus, the mysterious stranger who appeared out of no where to save her life, Lola must accomplish what the rest of the human race has failed to do in the aftermath of the world wide massacre: survive.

But how do you survive when everything you know has been destroyed... and the one person you thought you could trust ends up being the most dangerous person of all?

Why, oh WHY, is this just a novella!!! When you have something this awesome, rock on!!!! And on and on and on!

Lola is your everyday misfit, hellbent on pushing the limit, totally acting out over her parents' divorce and her father's drunkenness. She's currently trying to steal a car, dragging her whiny, unmanly best friend Travis along for the felony, when they hear a horrible shriek within the house. Curious, and a little too reckless, Lola knocks on the door, but it's not the owner that answers, but a beefy-looking vampire. Travis is compelled to enter the house, but not Lola. Yep...you guessed it - Run, Lola, Run!

But there's not a lot of places to run. Everywhere she goes people are screaming, people are running, people are dying. She's determined to get home to her father, then rescue Travis, but it's a long way. And running into a female vampire that wants to make Lola her new plaything isn't getting her there any faster. Luckily the vamp is distracted by a vamp that outranks her, but she doesn't leave before biting Lola. It's not until Lola meets the hunky, weapon-toting Maximus that she learns the female vamp can now track Lola. Well...that sucks. But she's still determined to find her father, rescue her best friend and escape the hellhole her town has now become. But dodging loose vampires proves hard enough. How will she ever get away with a vamp chasing her down that's determined to make Lola her personal plaything?

This novella is types of awesome. It's just a little over a hundred pages, and with action from beginning to end, you're gonna fly through this in one sitting, white knuckles and all. Best part of all? It's only 99 cents and worth so much more! Pick it up now!

Okay, seriously? It's still not in your queue? Let me make this easy for you:

Pitch definitely sounds like an exciting and fun read. I don't mind novellas, but when something is really good you can't help wishing that it was longer. LOL
Thanks for the review!!
