Publisher's Summary

Jessie Flores is having the ultimate bad hair day.

Imagine going to bed with mousy brown locks and waking up with a headful of supernova scarlet. It's a hot new look for me - literally, because it bursts into flames whenever I'm threatened. 

My magical makeover is all Gary's fault. I knew there was something off from the moment he transferred to my school. Go figure. He's a wizard with a trust fund and an inferiority complex.  

Now, thanks to him, I've graduated from high school bullies to supernatural terrors and that's not all. Fate has chosen me to face the legendary vampire destined to destroy the world. 

If I want to survive, I'll have to dig deep and discover whether I'm truly worthy of this new power. Because if not, everything I hold dear will soon burn even hotter than my hair.

Fun

This was a really fun book. It is fast paced and keeps good momentum throughout. The characters are great and I didn't mind the ending even though it leaves you wanting more.

Outstanding!

I already loved both of these authors, so I knew I would like this book. The blending of talent here was outstanding. Highly entertaining to see the world of Bill through another set of eyes. The narrator choice was really good, too.

A great companion to The Tomb of Bill

A fun, intriguing story that tied nicely into the world of Bill the Vampire. Well done.
