Book Review - Colt Harper: Esteemed Vampire Cat by Tyrolin Puxty

Amazon USA Amazon UK Goodreads

Review by Suze

Colt Harper is a vampire cat. He loves killing, especially humans who are cruel to cats. He doesn't know any others of his kind, but he isn't the only monster that exists. He is being watched by the council and tried like all monsters when he does something wrong. They don't allow killing humans any longer and because Colt has just murdered someone he's being ordered to do community service, which he finds incredibly unfair.

Colt is being sent to a community theater where he has to work together with several other monsters that have done something the council doesn't approve of as well. Jax, a scared werewolf has turned someone against their will, Lexi is a tickle monster and kills kids by tickling them to death and Saffy has green eyes and seems human, but is she really? How can Colt like someone who's human, he normally finds them beneath him and wants to kill them. When chasers are coming after the group of monsters Colt wants to protect them, especially Saffy. That's nothing like him, what's happening to him?

Colt Harper: Esteemed Vampire Cat is a fantastic absurd story. Tyrolin Puxty has a great sense of humor and I loved every word of her story. Colt likes killing people and doesn't understand why he isn't allowed to do what his species can do best. He says exactly what he thinks and I liked the way his mind works. I loved his dry remarks and he kept making me laugh. His story captivated me immediately and enjoyed reading it from beginning to end. He's a brilliant main character.

Tyrolin Puxty's writing has an easy flow and she has a great original own style. Her stories are fast-paced and filled with amazing dialogue and surreal ideas. It's wonderful to be taken into one of her imaginary worlds. Colt Harper: Esteemed Vampire Cat is a terrific story, it's creative, entertaining, fascinating and absolutely spellbinding. The characters are fabulous and every single one of them made me smile. They're the least scary monsters I've ever read about and I found that hilarious. I read this story in one sitting and really enjoyed it.


If you love reading about monsters and like entertaining stories that will make you laugh Colt Harper: Esteemed Vampire Cat would be an excellent choice.
