WARNING–BOOK TWO OF THE SERIE-MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS
Title: Dead Girls Dance
Author: Rachel Caine
Number of Pages: 238
Publisher: New American Library
Claire has her share of challenges. Like being a genius in a school that favors beauty over brains; homicidal girls in her dorm, and finding out that her college town is overrun with the living dead. On the up side, she has a new boyfriend with a vampire-hunting dad. But when a local fraternity throws the Dead Girls' Dance, hell is really going to break loose.
The second book of the Morganville Vampires series is the perfect continuation of the first one. The characters are as good as they were in the first. And in this series, the characters are a major factor to why this book is that good.
The book starts right where it left out in Glass Houses. More problems are coming for Claire, Shane, Eve and Michael, brought to them by new characters, including Shane’s father. We start to understand more about the ways and rules of Morganville. Of course, you need to have read Glass Houses to enjoy this book; After all, they don’t remind you of what happened in the first book. You need to have the story of Glass houses still fresh in your mind to be able to really appreciate this one.
The plot is captivating, again. Caine really doesn’t want us to give up on Claire and company. You just can’t put the book down, as you can’t go on without knowing what will happen to the characters.
The story still ends with a cliffhanger. Yet, it is not as mean as the one in Glass Houses was. The main story line is tied up, but some new things leave you expecting the worst for Claire and her friends. I already can’t wait to pick the third one, to know what will happen.
I would give it a good 8.5/10, because it isn’t exactly as good as the first. Still, it is pretty close.
