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.

Like all good books coming off a cliffhanger, this book starts exactly where we left off in Glass Houses and I am so glad because the cliffhanger just sucked. Big time.

The best thing about this book is that it is so action packed from the start that you never get bored, and I love that. The fact that there is so much action gives you a fast paced book that is so easy an quick to read.

The stakes are so much higher then the previous book. And lives a literally on the line.

I like Claire is a lot different from the first book. She is more fierce and determined and willing to do what needs to be done to get the job done. Which is totally refreshing compared to the previous book.

The story line was so good and kept me wondering where it was going to go next and what options Claire and her friends had. Let’s face it in a town full of Vampires what choices do you have? Not a lot and especially with Shane’s dad in the picture, things get ugly very quickly.

There is a lot of double crossing, secrets and lies in this book and it just made the whole thing ten times better.

Here’s to reading the next book!
