Release date: April 3, 2007
Description: Claire Danvers has her share of challenges—like being a genius in a school that favors beauty over brains, dealing with the homicidal girls in her dorm, and above all, finding out that her college town is overrun with vampires. On the up side, she has a great roommate (who tends to disappear at sunup) and a new boyfriend named Shane, whose vampire-hunting dad has called in backup: cycle punks who like the idea of killing just about anything. Now a fraternity is throwing its annual Dead Girls’ Dance and—surprise!—Claire and her equally outcast best friend, Eve, have been invited. When they find out why, all hell is going to break loose. Because this time both the living and the dead are coming out—and everybody’s hungry for blood.
Thoughts: This book picks up basically right when the first one stopped. That is a good thing. Overall it isn’t a bad book but my feelings are just so-so with it. The story moved along at an okay pace. It is a short, quick read. I do like the characters. I like that Claire is becoming someone you don’t want to mess with. She is learning to stand up to people.
