Day Shift by Missy Jane

Zoria hated working the day shift. Everyone was at home, sleeping, and there were hardly any customers at the convenience store. Awakening for breakfast and watching the late news, she was irritated by a clip of a speech from the President, talking about the importance of positive human-vampire relations for the good of the country. With the President being a vampire, as well as her boss and her landlord, she knew it was not a good idea to publicize her dislike for vamps.

Getting to the convenience store, Zoria chatted with the night clerk and planned her day, restocking the synthetic blood products the vampires loved, and dusting the souvenir shelves. After completing these tasks, Zoria looked out the window to see a well-dressed man, complete with briefcase, grab a homeless man, and drain him of his blood, dropping the corpse in the alley.

Reporting the crime to the police brought a vampire detective into the store, one who was determined to solve the crime. As more details become known, Zoria finds herself in the middle of a strange mystery that seems to have a fatal ending.

I loved the way the country had flipped from day to night with the advent of a vampire President and a vampire ruling class. Zoria’s dislike for vampires, and then having to deal with them of a regular basis, was understandably very frustrating. The mention of a comic book, early on in the story, becomes more important than you would think as the story progresses. This was an interesting story, told from Zoria’s point of view, and one I enjoyed very much.

About Mary

My name is Mary, and I’m a serious book junkie, with a large personal collection of reading material. I’m fascinated by ghosts, the paranormal, and true crime stories. I love discovering the possibilities in the next world and am curious about the reasons people do what they do in this one. I’ve been reading since the age of 3, and always have a book or two or three going. I’m an elementary school substitute teacher, and I always have a book or two in my “bag of tricks”. My new favorite is “Frog in a Bog”. My husband and daughter do not share my passion for books, and secretly think I’ve gone over the top with my collecting and reading habits, but I firmly believe there are worse habits I could have!
