Ex-infantryman Felix Gomez came back from Iraq decidedly undead. Back home in Denver, he embarked upon a new career where nighttime work is the norm: private investigator. Since then, he's managed to survive lustful extraterrestrials, manic nymphomaniacs, and x-rated bloodsuckers, while satisfying his own unorthodox hungers with blood-laced Mexican food.

But some thirsts aren't as easily assuaged, and that's where "The Undead Kama Sutra" comes in—a hands-on manual that illustrates how sex can help a lonely vampire increase his psychic energies. Felix's search for missing parts of the coveted manuscript is, of course, purely professional. And now the dying words of an alien interloper ("Find Goodman and save Earth's women!") are thrusting the immortal (if he's lucky) P.I. and a bodacious undead sexpert, Carmen Arellano, into a seamy mess of otherworldly abductions, shady military irregularities, and unexplained murder.

This book is fun and is a quick read. It's unlikely that it will ever be considered a classic in the genre, but is a nicely distracting read when one just wants an escape hatch for a few hours.This book is the third book in a series, and has many references to the earlier books. Although it is not absolutely necessary to read the others to read this, the references make no sense unless you have read the first two books.read more

This series continues to be not nearly as trashy as I really want it to be, but it's pretty trashy. Alien human traffickers, vampires, government assassins, and Big Pharma execs - plus a hobo with a heart of gold. It's all good.read more

For a novel called “The Undead Kama Sutra,” you’d expect this to be a fun read in that guilty-pleasure sort of way.Unfortunately, that’s just not the case with the latest installment in the Felix Gomez series. Gomez is a former soldier who was turned to a vampire in Iraq. He comes home and becomes a sort of supernatural private investigator who had previous encounters with aliens in area 51. His latest escapades find him searching for the mythical undead kama sutra that is supposed to have powers for the undead set based on the release of sexual energy. Before he knows it, he’s caught up in following the mysterious death of someone at the apparent hand of aliens and looking into matters for the council that rules vampires in Max Acevado’s universe.On paper, all that sounds like the makings of fun read that would be almost perfect for the upcoming beach season. It should be a book that you’d recommend to people because the title is so good and the book is a trashy, guilty pleasure kind of fun.But beyond the fun title, there’s not a lot of fun to be had here. The story plods along and it’s hard to really care much about the plight of Gomez. Plus there’s only so many descriptions of vampire Carmen’s chest that one can read before you start rolling your eyes and go, “Come on, already.” In a lot of ways, this reads like a bad knock-off of Jim Butcher’s far superior Harry Dresden series. And with the success of Dresden, there is room on the shelves for the same type of fun, fantasy reads. Unfortunately, this one isn’t one of them.

Reasonably entertaining, but not riveting. I think that I've finally come to the realization that Felix Gomez simply isn't that bright or good at being a PI. I'll probably keep reading about Felix, but I am getting a bit bored.I did get a chuckle out of the fact that I was reading this book on the way to a vacation in Hilton Head Island given that a chunk of the story takes place on Hilton Head Island.

The third in Acevedo's series, The Undead Kama Sutra continues the adventures of vampire PI Felix Gomez as he solves mysteries and worries about bigger conspiracies that threaten both humans and vampires. The series is light, a bit sarcastic, and doesn't take itself too seriously. Good fun!
