    "You have to read the 1st book to understand this 1"

    I have been struggling to grasp the plot and characters in this book when I realized it is a second in the series. I am going to download the first book now in hopes to better enjoy the story.

    Story
    "Not as good as Vampire Academy"
    What did you love best about The Dead Girls' Dance?

    I liked that the storyline. I also like it that the author used the same narrator for all of her series. It's basically a pg rated – tween version of Vampire Academy. I like it that the storyline really changes between books. The “love Interest” quandry is between a 16 year old college freshman and her 18 year old male roomate. So, they are determined not to go past 2nd base. No blood and gore in this series. It really doesn't get into how they get their blood (other than the unmentioned college kids disappearing). We find a new main character and this book sets up well for book 3. I never reached a point where, “I couldn't put it down.” Nor were there any places I bookmarked, like I did in the Vampire Academy. The character descriptions didn't really give me a good mind's eye as to what the characters looked like other than general descriptions ie “blonde and blue eyes- I couldn't take my eyes off of him.” I had a hard time buying into the characters, this might be done on purpose, since I feel that the audience is tween. I bought book 3 and 4. 3 is much better than book 2.


    Have you listened to any of Cynthia Holloway’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I like her performance, but her man voice really cold be better.

    "Not worth credits!"

    First off, I am a 30 something adult. And although I do read YA fiction at times and have enjoyed it, I must admit this book didn't really grab me. I do like the strong heroine of this series though. I am usually forgiving of narrators to a fault but this is one of the few times I just could not. Her voice sounded too mechanical.

    "Just as good as the first one"
    What made the experience of listening to The Dead Girls' Dance the most enjoyable?

    Everything. I loved the plot and the narrarator.


    What other book might you compare The Dead Girls' Dance to and why?

    Hmm...I don't know. This story is so different than many others I've read.


    What about Cynthia Holloway’s performance did you like?

    I like how she has different


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Finding out more about Eve's past was really emotional. It make me understand her character a lot better. And I love Amalie.

    "Read the book, narrator sucks"

    Great story, I listened to the first one and then bought the second one so it can't be that bad. However, it took awhile to ignore the narrator. She sounds pissed off meets valley girl while impersonating William Shatner. Cynthia Holloway reads the book in an annoying cadence that once you get passed it the book is awesome.

    "Lindsey713"

    The book is geared more for older teenagers but that aside the book is well written and narrated. The storyline is creative and keeps you interested despite the young age of the characters. Not a bad read. Make sure you read the 1st book "Glass House" in the series before this book so your not lost.

    "No Sophomore slump here..."

    This book was pretty good it takes place right where the first book leaves off. The pace is pretty fast considering the whole book is less than a week in the lives of the roommates of the Glass house. I am going to read the third book ASAP.
