This is a fun little book to read when you are waiting for the next Kelley Armstrong or Kim Harrison to be shipped. It is a young adult novel, so it is definitely tame in comparison to other novels of the same genre. The concept of a vampire-run town that no one outside of the town knows about is intriguing. The mystery surrounding Morganville is told in a way that leaves you wanting more.

I love the characters and will definitely be ordering the rest of the series. I have a daughter who is a bit of an academic over-acheiver so it it was fun to picture her in Claire's shoes. I like the fact that we never forget that she is sixteen in a world of eighteen year olds and that yes, there is a difference between those two ages. While Claire is mature enough for college, there are some things that she really does just want to call her parents for help with and that is refreshing. I like that the characters' respect for their parents and other adults is still strong while not being portrayed as wimps because of it.
