I needed something light to balance off Sweetheart, Sweetheart, which I read again before bedtime last night. Apparently, I don't learn. But who needs sleep anyway when you have to be up and at work for a 6 a.m. call with the other side of the world?
Anyway, Monstrous Regiment has a diverse cast of characters and one of them is Maladict, an aristocratic vampire, who has been "dry" for nearly two years - i.e. ever since he joined the temperance movement. That part made me laugh out loud when listening to the audiobook in the car this morning.
