(Review) KAPTAIN VAMP by author Joanne Lecuyer

by Cyrus Webb

There is something about being able to feel as though you have the power to change things around you. 

On television and comic books we see superheroes emerge that are able to change the day, but what about ordinary people like you and me? Can we really make a difference? Yes we can!

In KAPTAIN VAMP by Joanne Lecuyer we are able to see how a young vampire named Allistaire is able to look past what others might think of him and what he is able to do and make a decision that he is going to change the world around him. With the help of his best friend Rich, we see them devise a plan that will turn him into just another vampire to someone who is ready to be a force for good!

This story is great for those young and old for several reasons. One is it shows that you can't judge a book by its cover when it comes to people. Though Alistaire and his family are vampires, they don't fit into the mold of what others might think of them. They are different. More importantly, they are INDIVIDUALS, not defined by the actions of others. There is also the point of what one person (or in this case vampire) can do. You might not think that as "one" you can change much, but Allistaire proves that it all begins somewhere! You can do much to help others around you just by being aware of your surroundings and being willing to help others.

The way KAPTAIN VAMP ends definitely leaves room for interpretation on what actually happened with the young vampire or what his next adventure will be, but that is exactly what readers will be wondering as they anticipate what the author has in store for them next.

Definitely a book that should be on your reading list, KAPTAIN VAMP shows that we can all be heroes.
