Buffy fans, note: "Mayhem at Grant-Williams High" by Vera Nazarian review

Mayhem at Grant-Williams High by Vera Nazarian

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Book Info: Genre: Urban Fantasy satire
Reading Level: YA
Recommended for: anyone
Trigger Warnings: Monsters and mayhem

Disclosure: I picked up this book for myself from Amazon during a free promotion because I enjoy this author’s style of writing. No review was requested. All opinions are my own.

Synopsis: Think your high school experience was Hell? Vampires, werewolves, mummies, ghouls... and moron idiot students. Welcome to Grant-Williams High.

My Thoughts: So, the basic premise: each finals week, the teachers turn into monsters. Oh, dear lady... I about choked when I started reading and saw that, because I just find the whole idea... to be HILARIOUS!! Vera Nazarian will kill me with her silliness yet, I do declare...

This book actually contains the first two adventures at Grant-Williams High; another one is planned with the next two adventures, and I will totally be there. This book was wonderfully fun—sort of like a milder version of Buffy—and I just loved it. The characters were a lot of fun, and the idea was an absolute hoot. Since it is novella-length as it is, and that contains two stories, there isn’t much I can tell you about it without putting in spoilers, so let me just say: if you enjoyed Buffy the Vampire Slayer, you will enjoy these fun stories. Check it out.

I will now have to take a break from my Vera Nazarian marathon, as I realized I had promised a couple of reviews over the weekend that were not done because I forgot what week I was in. I will be back to finish Vera Nazarian’s books after a brief break to read the two I was supposed to read over the weekend.
