Carpe Jugulum by Terry Pratchett
When the well-intentioned but flaky King of Lancre plans a party to celebrate the birth of his daughter, he invites everyone including the vampires of Uberwald! Of course, vampires can only go where they are invited, and now that they are there, they have no intention of leaving. No ordinary vampires are these, however! They are modern, garlic-eating, cross-bearing, sun-loving vampires, yet as thirsty as their more traditional ancestors. A trio of local witches is determined to rout them out, joining forces with an odd young priest to do so. This is Terry Pratchetts 23rd Discworld novel laugh-out-loud funny and requiring no previous experience with his books to thoroughly enjoy it.
This book is available on audiocassette.
