This is my personal review without spoilers of the actual plot.
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.
This series gets better and better. Even more action felt then the first. It’s interesting how the love aspect is developing too. It’s not a good YA fantasy series without some hot love now and then. Moreover, I didn’t think it possible, but it’s even more unpredictable than anticipated.
The characters change a lot during this part; they seem more real, alive and relatable.
We get to know Michael and Shane a lot more; they step up and become an indispensable part of the universe. To be honest I’m not a fan of Eve she annoys me to death.
She doesn’t evolve frankly; she devolves if that’s even possible. However, putting that aside this is truly an interesting read.
Language wise it’s easy to read and extremely addictive. It had a natural flow and no noticeable mistakes.
Looking forward to the next book, I’m sure it will be… great!
Read it, you won’t regret starting this series.
