Review: Diary of a Narcissistic Bloodsucker


Told in first person by the vampire herself (Zara), this is the diary of an ancient, self-absorbed, yet-amusing nightwalker. She lusts for both sex and blood. Unfortunately, something has gone awry and her normal habits now create new problems to solve. In the midst of sorting things out, she meets an intriguing human named Niven -- a musician who lives in the magical kingdom of contemporary Boulder, CO -- and discovers that he is much more than he appears to be. Then, if things weren't interesting enough, Zara encounters her old mentor/lover -- the vampire who originally turned her -- and things get downright supernatural.


This is a fun, light read. It's pretty short - easy to sit down and read in one sitting. Zara is a vampire who is definitely full of herself. The story is told from her point of view - like a diary entry. It's funny, witty, refreshing... Definitely different than anything I've read before. Zara is someone who would be annoying to know in real life, but I liked reading her thoughts - definitely made me smile. The ending was unexpected - but interesting. I will be reading more books by this Lynda Hilburn in the future!


  1. I love Linda's series The Vampire Shrink, but again you have to be able to deal with a heroine somewhat like this one. Check it out one day, the series might be something you like.

  2. I read and loved the Vampire Shrink and she's finally working on a new one due out in 2012, now less!

    I may give this a try!

  3. Sounds like a fun, easy read. Thanks for the review!

  4. Hehe the title alone is great. Great review!
