Book Blurb:

Claire has her share of challenges. Like being a genius in a school that favours beauty over brains; homicidal girls in her dorm, and finding out that her college town is overrun with the living dead. On the up side, she has a new boyfriend with a vampire-hunting dad. But when a local fraternity throws the Dead Girls’ Dance, hell is really going to break loose.

My Thoughts:

My first though after finishing this book is that title gave me a different idea for what would happen. I really though about zombies, don’t know why. Anyway, the book is more like a better glimpse for what this town really is. When Claire start learning more about vampires and how they live, and of course she also has to deal with Monica, the sicko.

The pace in this book is faster than the first at least for me, probably because we’ve been introduced to the characters and now the action is more than story. Monica is back and continues with her nonstop drama. Plus Claire and Shane are now a couple, more or less.

New vampires make this book, a lot of fun, and the end was so not what I expected, and totally made me insane for the next book. Shane was a bad boy and I really though he was a great guy.

Book Blurb:

It’s a small college town filled with quirky characters. But when the sun goes down, the bad comes out. Because in Morganville, there is an evil that lurks in the darkest shadows – one that will spill out into the bright light of day.
Claire Danvers has had enough of her nightmarish dorm situation. The popular girls never let her forget just where she ranks on the school’s social scene: somewhere less than zero. And Claire really doesn’t have the right connections – to the undead who run the town.
When Claire heads off campus, the imposing old house where she finds a room may not be much better. Hew new roommates don’t show many signs of life. But they’ll have Claire’s back when the town’s deepest secrets come crawling out, hungry for fresh blood…

My Thoughts:

I liked Claire, she’s smart, a bit young but knows how to handle things as an adult, and since she’s only 16 her parents though it was better for her to start college in Texas, close to home. And that how she end up in Morganville, where things are very different at night.

After everything she’s been through with those mean popular girls one especially bad day makes her decides to change things. And no we are not talking about revenge, Claire is a sweet girl after all, she’s just trying to run and find a new place to stay because the dorm seams impossible.

That’s how she finds herself in a lot of trouble. Things are very different on the city and the house where she finds a place to stay people are specially complicated.

I found this book a good surprise, but them it must be good since the author is already writing the #12. After so much talking and writing about vampires I can’t stop reading about them. For years I’ve loved Buffy and in those times vampires didn’t had the same status as now. And after so many good books this one was special. The world is well written and the characters have guts and strong minds.

Can I just say that I loved Michael since the first page but Shane not so much. And Eve is perfect. In a town where everyone is afraid of the vampires or just following the rules, she made them look ridiculous and decided to be unique.
