Mariutza Tepes, the mother of Vlad Tepes, who is better known asDracula, is incensed at the way the Americans have commercialized Halloween and taken the scary right out of it. Chief among the instigators of this attack on Halloween is Mariutza's daughter-in-law,Tiffany. Tiffany is married to Mariutza's youngest son, Victor, who is the new ambassador for Romania.

To get her point across, Mariutza enlists the aid of her other son Dracula. Unfortunately, his efforts aren't very successful and the vampires break off into two factions: those who want a scary Halloween and those who want it to continue as is. During his first attempt to scare people, Dracula meets a history teacher, Ellen Reinecke, who he has an attraction to.

Ms. Rose adds a short story to her humorous vampire series. While I was happy to see characters from the previous stories, I wish that Ms.Rose had spent more time with Vlad and Ellen. I don't feel that I got a true handle on their characters. However, it was a refreshing change to have a hero and heroine, both being less than physically perfect. If you are looking for an amusing short story to read on a lazy afternoon,give I'M A VAMPIRE AT WAR ON HALLOWEEN a try.
