* GenreSavvy: Tommy. After he finds out that Jody is a newly-turned vampire unfamiliar with her powers, he gets a bunch of vampire books, studies them and uses trial and error to figure out specific vampire strengths, abilities and weaknesses. In particular he's rather stuck on Creator/AnneRice's ''[[TheVampireChronicles The Vampire Lestat]]''.

* WrongGenreSavvy: Played with. Tommy saturates himself with vampire literature and appears to be this initially when he asks Jody to [[spoiler:turn into mist]] like {{Dracula}}, but it turns out that all she needed was a tutor. Other things he does get wrong, though. Jody can't fly or turn into a wolf, for instance. He also suspects himself of becoming TheRenfield and lists a bunch of reasons attributable to other things. Abby also counts; she believes that vampires are all dark, brooding, serious and romantic, more along the lines of Literature/AnneRice's ''TheVampireChronicles'' or ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'' than the vampires that show up in the book.

* CurbStompBattle: [[AwesomeMoments Jody beats the everloving crap out of a gang that intended to rape her]] and shouts "Forty-fucking-Niners!" at them as she walks out the door, presumably in response to the Oakland Raiders paraphernalia the gang is wearing.

A trilogy written by ChristopherMoore about vampires and romance... And no, it's nothing like ''Literature/{{Twilight}}''. Although they are described as love stories, romance actually plays a surprisingly small role in these books. For the most part the genre fluctuates among comedy, drama, supernatural and suspense, with Moore's typical emphasis on comedy.

* ShoutOut: The title of the third novel, ''Bite Me'' is a reference to {{Christopher Moore}}'s other novel, ''[[Literature/FlukeOrIKnowWhyTheWingedWhaleSings Fluke]]'' where a whale has "Bite Me" tattooed to its fins.

* SlidingScaleOfSillinessVersusSeriousness: Not to say that the book is entirely lacking in seriousness, but given [[ChristopherMoore the author]], this book is quite far down on the Silly side of the scale.

** Jody also worries that she's done this to him at one point, and tests it by asking him to jump off a roof. He refuses.
