3 out of 5 smirks
Synopsis: “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 Dead Girls’ Dance was consistent with the first book of the Morganville Vampire Series. I mean, as far as the whole action/romance/mystery thing goes it was good. I wouldn’t buy the book though because I don’t plan on re-reading it, but that is not to say that I do not believe it was a good book because it was. We get to know the characters more and their dynamics become more prudent and intertwined with each other. Michael, Shane, Eve, and Claire all make up 4 totally different personalities in the Glass House, but they are blend together to create this solid bond between each other.
I really enjoyed The Dead Girls’ Dance because it actually showed in Morganville there are other things to fear other than darkness and vampires. Humans are an issue as well, because they are not all ultimately good, some are just as evil maybe even more so than vampires in Morganville. In this book we get a glimpse of both vampires and humans at their best and at their worse painting a truly complicated picture for Morganville itself. 3 out of 5 smirks because it was good and I had to read it, but wouldn’t buy it. Now I’m off the read Midnight Alley (book 3).
