Glenn Stevens’ My Yoga Instructor is a Vampire! starts with two friends, Jill and Vickie, walking home from a yoga session. A supposedly normal night turns into a dangerous situation when Jill notices a certain yoga instructor following them home. Kim, their yoga instructor, had been behaving strangely in their class, staring at Jill’s neck in concentration. She had found him weird with his large eyes and longer-than-normal canines. Because of his strange behavior and almost inhuman eyes, Jill starts to believe there may be something supernatural about him - maybe he was a vampire looking for his next prey!

My Yoga Instructor is a Vampire! is a short, fast-paced, quick-witted piece of work that will constantly leave you on the edge of your seat with every page turned. The dialogue between the two friends, Jill and Vickie, is believable, quick, and straight to the point with the appropriate small talk squeezed in. The two friends argued about the possibility of vampires versus a shy yoga instructor who was maybe into Jill but was too awkward to ask her out properly. It was so easy to be swept up in their banter and pulled in by their tension when they realize who followed them home.

I was so into the book that I started screaming at Vickie and Jill somewhere in the middle of the story to kick Kim out already! I also wanted to slap myself in exasperation when Vickie seduced Kim in the bathroom. I was so into the unfolding drama that I questioned Vickie’s sanity and self-preservation instincts out loud. Glenn Stevens’ relatable main characters, paired with his fast-paced plot, kept me engaged and quickly turning the pages, eager to know how it ended. I held my breath right from the interesting beginning to the unexpected ending. This is a brilliant piece of writing with an alluring plot and unforgettable beginning, middle, and ending. Great work!

My Yoga Instructor is a Vampire! by Glenn Stevens is a short paranormal story in which a vampire is wreaking havoc in the lives of innocent young women. When a new free yoga studio is opened on a college campus, students flock to the studio for some fitness instruction. The instructor, Kim, is a bit different though. Jill is suspicious of the instructor and she is sure that he is a vampire. He seems to be interested in her neck a little too much and she thinks he is following her home. Spooked and afraid, she is even more frightened when she finds out that one of their fellow students was found drained of blood and dead in an alley. How can Jill make sure that she stays safe and out of the yoga instructor’s way? How can she shake off a vampire who is far too interested in her blood?

This the perfect quick read to start the Halloween season. The story is a lot more suspenseful than horror and is great for those who love to read vampire fiction or want to start jumping into the genre. Jill and Vickie are two very funny and quirky girls; they are interesting and their dynamic was fun to read. I enjoyed Vickie’s reactions the most; she was the more perceptive of the two and she was bolder. I enjoyed how they both acted as a protector for each other. The flow was nice, the pace was fast and the story was interesting. Short and entertaining, indeed.
