review 1: 4.5 Stars*ARC Supplied by Publisher*Lifestyles of the Rich and Undead – by Katie MacAlisterThis is a very short story, one that was quite enjoyable if a little confusing to me. However, once you know that it is only meant to be an introduction to a novella it starts to make much more sense.This story is meant to introduce us to Grayson before he meets his beloved (Noelle) in the novella from the book “The Undead Under My Bed “. In this shorts story we will find out about a television show obviously called Lifestyles of the Rich and Undead and you will meet with not only Grayson the Vampire who is supposed to be interviewed but we will meet with ‘Nosty’ a feisty and funny poltergeist.As disappointed as I was to find that it only took about 10 minutes to read, it... more does set us up quite well for the novella. There is not enough time to give us a deep understanding of the characters, but you do get the point that Grayson is the typical Dark One all broody and angsty and handsome as all get out. There are enough funny lines to remind me of just why I used to love Katie Macalister’s work so much and to give me hope that she is going to be finding her way back to the path that she somewhat left for a little while.
review 2: o this short story/novella was my first taste of reading Katie MacAlister and I think I am going to have to try something else. The concept of the book caught my eye because of the almost comedic feel to the idea. The problem is there is nothing funny about it. It tries to be funny but it just fails. It doesn’t have a good flow to it and what is an attempt at banter falls short of witty.Even with this little hiccup, the idea is gold. I am not going to write off Katie MacAlister for this book. I will give her work a shot again.For the unique idea alone, I am going to give Lifestyles of the Rich and Undead 2 stars. At only $0.99 cents for the ebook, I would say give it a read but dont expect to be blown away. less

I prefee the whole book to a short story, but it was good as usual, as are all of her books.
Meh, I could continue on with the Dark Ones series without having read this perfectly well.
This definitely does what it's suppose to, which is make me look forward to the next book!
Did Not Finish.
