Book Review: Sudden Death Overtime

Title: Sudden Death Overtime
Author: Steve Vernon 
Book Details: Approx 52 pages
Format Reviewed: ebook
Blurb: Meet Sprague Deacon - one of the toughest old-time hockey players who ever skated upon a rink of hand-poured ice. Sprague was born and raised and he expects to die here on the Northern Labrador coast. What he did not expect was a tour bus full of vampires - none of whom glitter in the least bit - to pull into his town and begin lowering the population level - one corpse at a time. Sprague and his three best friends - an over-the-hill never-say quit bush league hockey team from Northern Labrador go toe-to-tooth with a tour bus full of vampires in an immortal-stakes showdown of street hockey? For the answer - throw Paul Newman's Slapshot into a blender with Steven Niles 30 Days of Night and hit frappe!

Steve Vernon is the author of a dozen e-books of outrageously mind-blowing horror and dark fantasy including his horror/historical full length novel DEVIL TREE, the take-no-prisoners testosterone-fest superhero extravaganza NOTHING TO LOSE and the cult hit novella LONG HORN, BIG SHAGGY - A TALE OF WILD WEST TERROR AND REANIMATED BUFFALO.

Steve is a born storyteller who hits notes that have been known to hurt the ears of other notes.

Also including the bonus time travelling hockey tale, "Time Out".  

My Review: Vampires and hockey. What more could a girl ask for? Well, and these aren't sappy vampires either. Now, for you non-hockey fans, there really isn't as much hockey within the novella as you might think from the cover (but I have to admit, I love the cover).

The author's sens of humor isn't always funny, but catches you enough to make you shake your head. So, I found, either way, it kept me amused. And isn't that the main goal of any writer?

Rating: 4/5
