Was not disappointed. I had been waiting for this book. I loved Ben and Fran from MacAlister's earlier books. I was excited to see a more grown up Fran. At times though I felt that Fran still was acting too childish and her behavior seemed juvenile. MacAlister made me laugh and kept the pages turning. I don't want to spoil the book but anyone familiar with her work knows that she tends to leave you hanging. I don't mind a set up for a sequel but I didn't feel like she finished telling the story in the current book. At the end of the book I was looking for more. Something that indicated to me that this was the end. Instead it felt like she just stopped writing. This book is currently on my keeper shelf.

In the Company of Vampires is the continuation of Fran and Ben's story. Katie MacAlister originally introduced these characters in the Young Adult books Got Fangs and Circus of the Darned (republished as Confessions of a Vampire's Girlfriend). If you have not read the earlier books this one will not make sense.

I read this book in two days, I couldn't put it down. I love this series, the author is always really funny and I love the other paranormal references into it, and she often mentiones characters or places that are in other books to sort of follow up on previous stories, which I really like. I can't wait to read what's next!

I've recently become hooked on Katie MacAlister's vampire series. Loved her dragon books, and the early books in the vampire series were great, but the last two have left me feeling that she's just writing to write. The plots aren't nearly as concise and fleshed out, and the early premise of the book really isn't addressed fully, everything just leads to the next book. Would like a bit more resolution in each book. The dragon series is much more enjoyable reading, the characters are more developed.

This book especially was confusing, as I haven't yet read Confessions of a Vampire's Girlfriend and it appears that that is required to follow the plot of In the Company of Vampires.
