F is for Felix Gomez (Book Review: The Nymphos of Rocky Flats)

norfThe Nymphos of Rocky Flats by Mario Acevedo  is one of those books that pull you in the very moment you read the back cover. Vampires, Nymphos, and UFOs–sounds like a fun romp, of course I want to read it! And it didn’t disappoint on the fun romp side of things. The pace is go-go-go and doesn’t stop until the epilogue. And at the end, the reader is left wondering if anything actually happened that mattered.

Felix Gomez went to Iraq a soldier and came back a vampire. He carries a bunch of guilt after accidentally killing a little, Iraqi girl. That’s about as much about Felix that the reader gets to know. This book is definitely not character driven; it’s driven by the bizarre, fast-paced plot that filled with Vampires and vampire slayers, government conspiracies, and, of course, nymphomania.

Felix now uses his vampire-powers to aid him in his job as a private detective. He is asked by a friend to investigate an outbreak of nymphomania at the Rocky Flats Nuclear Facility in Denver, CO. His investigation leads him to uncover some strange things about Rocky Flats and the people who run it. At the same time, there’s a band of Vampire hunters on the loose, cutting the heads off of local vampires, and they’re gunning for Felix.

The book is entertaining, and I would continue reading the Felix Gomez books, but I do hope that future books delve deeper into the characters, including Felix himself, and what it is that makes them tick.

3/5 Stars

  1. FABULOUS (hehe sorry couldn’t help it!) I have this book on my Kindle. I may check it out over the next couple of weeks if I can pull my way through my TBR pile! I LOVE it another review as a A to Z challange! I did three so far but I am trying to not … JUST it fits so perfectly into the challenge and sometimes it is fun to see if you can! GREAT review!

  2. I can see that a solider would be haunted by events during war, but coming but coming back as a vampire….hum. Not my cup of tea, but it’s good to read the review and know not to put in on my to read list.
