      One moment 37-year-old Allison is crying in her tequila in a country-western joint; the next, she's a vampire. After coming to her senses about how to survive as the newbie undead, she meets up with a Bible-thumping street preacher with a wild hair up his tail, vampire shapeshifters who do erotic animal acts in a sleazy pit of a bar, the "furvert" clientele who drool over them, an aging Jewish-mother type named Miriam ("is this a vampire we got here or a whole ferstinkena zoo?"), and various other bizarre inhabitants of southern California nightlife.

    This is a funny romp of a vampire novel in the tradition of Nancy Collins's Sonja Blue stories and Christopher Moore's Bloodsucking Fiends. As horror critic Ed Bryant writes, Night Prayers "is a gorgeous confection, blood pudding whipped to a tasty scarlet froth.... The tone is smart-ass to the extreme."
