Read The Lesser Dead Online Free - The secret is, vampires are real and I am one.
The secret is, I’m stealing from you what is most truly yours and I’m not sorry—
New York City in 1978 is a dirty, dangerous place to live. And die. Joey Peacock knows this as well as anybody—he has spent the last forty years as an adolescent vampire, perfecting the routine he now enjoys: womanizing in punk clubs and discotheques, feeding by night, and sleeping by day with others of his kind in the macabre labyrinth under the city’s sidewalks.
The subways are his playground and his highway, shuttling him throughout Manhattan to bleed the unsuspecting in the Sheep Meadow of Central Park or in the backseats of Checker cabs, or even those in their own apartments who are too hypnotized by sitcoms to notice him opening their windows. It’s almost too easy.
Until one night he sees them hunting on his beloved subway. The children with the merry eyes. Vampires, like him…or not like him. Whatever they are, whatever their appearance means, the undead in the tunnels of Manhattan are not as safe as they once were.
And neither are the rest of us.

That's it then: this is my favorite Christopher Buehlman book. It's made even better by the fact that he narrates it himself. It's unbelievably FUN, gory, tension- filled and fascinating! What more could a horror fan ask for?

4 1/2 bumping up to a 5 because that ending surprised the heck out of me!
Joey Peacock may look sixteen but don’t let his youthful looks fool you. He’s a street savvy vampire who has been sucking blood from the femoral arteries of charmed ladies for decades. He has a wicked sense of humor and I tr...

I know what you’re thinking (or might be thinking): ugh, vampires, soooo done to death (sorry about that). But bear with me, here. We’re talking about Christopher Buehlman, author of Those Across the River, The Necromancer’s House, and Between Two Fires. Th...

It is simply unfair how well Buehlman can craft a story. The thing that really stands out about his work is that with a, say, King or Koontz, I can summarize the story with one sentence and feel that many times they started the writing process based on that 'what if'. With him, I can't and many t...

The Lesser Dead es la cuarta novela de Christopher Buehlman, un autor que comencé a leer el año pasado y que me sorprendió con la excelente calidad de sus historias de terror; al momento de escribir esta reseña llevo leídos «Los del otro lado» y...

Ο Buehlman γράφει ωραία πράματα: λογοτεχνία τρόμου ή καμιά φορά φαντασίας (between two fires), με λόγο συνεπή, προσέγγιση σοβαρή και όχι κλισέ και δεύτερου χεριού, ωραίες ιδέες και κυρίως μια γλώσσα έτσι όπως μου αρέσει - έξυπνη, με σκέρτσο αλλά όχι επιτηδευμένη. Είναι από αυτή την νέα γενιά συγγ...

I loved, loved, loved this book. Christopher Buehlman is a new author to me, and he is amazing. The voices of his characters were so strong they drew me into the tunnels of 1970’s New York City. New York of this time was known as a dirty, dangerous place and this...

Oh man oh man oh man, this book was SO GOOD!
I very much enjoy a good vampire story now and again. Well, a good non-teenybopper-love-story vampire story. And a good non-urban-fantasy-series-about-a-tough-female-protagonist-who-just-happens-to-boink-every-goddamned-monster-she-comes-across vampire...

Trust no one.
Did I say trust no one? Yes - absolutely - trust no one.
Especially bitie little kids with a voracious thirst.
Very well written, it get's you in, and there are some classic scenes and images that will linger in my mind the way that a well remembered dream stays with you after you awa...

Ohhhhh, this was one scary-ass book. I finished the book last night, and I was sorely tempted to just add a line about why I'm deducting one star and be done with it. But now that I've had the time to sleep on it and get back from the mental place I was after finishing it, here goe...
