One day, I saw the trailer for "The Vampire's Assistant" and thought that it looked like a cool movie. I then went to YouTube and watched the official trailer, and I knew I had to see it. I also read that it was a book, so I reserved for it at my library. I waited for about a month, but it felt like a year! In the mean time, I watched everything there was to watch about The Vampire's Assistant, and I thought how cool it would be to be able to run away and become a vampire.
When I finally got the book, I immediately started reading. I didn't even get through the introduction without realizing how much I liked Darren already! I guess it was the way he talked about how much he loved spiders (like me!) and how sensitive he sounded...and of course, my admiration grew to a crush by the end of the second book, and eventually I fell in love with Darren by book six!
What I really like about him is how sweet he is, and how he climbed Debbie Hemlock's house to kiss her, how cute he sounded playing with Streak and Rudi in "Vampire Mountain", how he never wished death to anyone, and especially how he cries whenever one of his friends die!
I like him so much better than someone like Edward Cullen, because he doesn't have to be a "perfect god"; just the fact that he seems like a regular guy to hang out with makes him cool in my book (pardon the pun). Plus, I think that "sparkly vampires" is a big turn-off!
