Publisher's Summary

In a posh suburb of the nation's capital, at the most exclusive high school in the world, the vampires who secretly run the government have created a game for America's daughters of privilege. Show up to Homecoming in a black dress and you've entered yourself in a contest where the winner lives forever, and the loser becomes the winner's first victim. Only the wealthiest, most connected students can hope to win, so when new girl Nicky Bloom wears a black dress to Homecoming, everyone assumes she has a death wish. They don't know that Nicky has her own agenda. But as the dance continues into the night, they will find out that Nicky Bloom is far more than she seems.

Cliff hanger ending

I dislike cliff hanger endings!!
The story is slow to start. This is something that I can understand... 1st book in a series and all. However just as the book finally starts to give you action it ends. I won't be buying the next book, you failed to hook me.

Hated it

I hated this story, the story line is extremely stretched, the reader is very slow. I mean veeeeery slooooow. This is the first book that I listen to at 2x and find it slow. I am sorry to the author and the performer for this review. But this is my honest opinion.

Too many background stories to drive silly plot

Decent narration.
Story seems silly and driven by sillier complicated back-stories and historical plots. This might spoil things a bit but you are barely into the first half of the dance 16 chapters in and there are so many background stories that don't make characters all that more sympathetic it makes your head spin. A prologue establishing the background might have mitigated the necessity of some of this. How these stories are wedged into the main plot is awkward. Much like this: the train moved down the track. The first car of the train came from a factory in Detroit. It was a cold month in Detroit when the care was built...

And in like fashion 15 cars are described.
Won't get the second book... That is quite enough.
