Review: If y’all have been reading my reviews, you know that I rarely award a book 5 stars.  But I loved this “book” from cover to cover.  Gena Showalter and Jill Monroe have created a masterpiece with their magazine stylized book devoted to the world of Dating the Undead.

After checking out the cover, I turned to page one and was rewarded with an ad for Coffin Klein and I knew I was in for quite a ride.  All the ads had me rolling.  I mean, who came up with mythmatch.com, GoDieVa or Jimmy Chew?  It’s pure genius.

On to the articles… they covered everything you’d find in a regular magazine but with an awesome twist.  There were recipes, an advice column, fashion stories and so on.  The authors equally tackle advice on how to date vampires, werewolves, dragons, zombies, angels and demons.  And to top it off, the photos are awesome.  Hot guys abound.

Included in this magazine is a sneak peak at Gena Showalter’s upcoming release, The Darkest Seduction (*squee*), and a wonderful photo album of her Lords of the Underworld.  I’ll admit that I hadn’t pictured the Lords like this, but I will from now on.

This really is a must read for paranormal fans.  And I dare you to not crack a smile at least once as you read.  Now excuse me while I go re-take that quiz on whether or not I have what it takes to date an immortal.
