A highly engrossing tale, “Madman in the Mirror” is a story about a man – Henry Johnson – who is raised by a psychopath and forced to watch – even as a baby – his father murder people on a regular basis. He is also abused and brainwashed, turning him into a sociopath. Henry stalks and murders people efficiently – he tells himself that he may be a killer, but he doesn’t want people to suffer. He is haunted by hallucinations, including a specter in his mirror that talks to him.
MADMAN IN THE MIRROR
Dracula: Hearts of Stone
After eons of darkness Dracula has come into the light. He must emerge from his suicidal hole to help mankind fight the bad vampires that prey on humans. The author Piers Anthony (now a vampire) tries to help him claw his way out, at the risk of his own existence. Meanwhile, a timid vampire named Michael falls for Lauren, a courageous red sheriff vampire. Even though Michael is frightened of her, he can’t help but pursue the red sheriff.
A 12-year-old girl named Jenny has turned out to be a vampire killer, protecting the innocent wherever she can. But as the evil ones take notice of her, she realizes that she might survive to her teen years.
It’s a tale of romance, fangs and valour.
Georgeanna wrote about Dracula: Hearts of Stone. “Jenny is a serious power for good to be reckoned with and I can't wait to read more about her, Allison, Piers Anthony(yes, the famous author), Michael, Lauren, Boa and Wei, Alexander and Tessy, Moon Diamond and poor Zacharia, and, of course, Dracula.”

I have a friend who already had a list of what she'd read this year (broken down by month) before she even joined this site. I also noticed there's an upload spot on Shelfari for tab deliniated files, for those who already keep their books alphabetized in a database.
GAWD we bookies are nerds, aren't we??
I thought Special Topics was fan.tas.tic. I filled out one of those review thingies, and gave it five stars.
