Publisher's Summary

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.

Not as good as Vampire Academy

What did you love best about The Dead Girls' Dance? I liked that the story line. 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 story line really changes between books. The “love Interest” quandry is between a 16 year old college freshman and her 18 year old male roommate. 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. Book 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 could be better.

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.

I resent the endings of the first two books

They end on "cliff hangers" without even any attempt to end the story reasonably. You have to buy the next book to find out what happens in the middle of a fight. It is a tactic that I resent and abhor. I will not be purchasing any more of this series or from this author if this is what is in store.
