Review: The Dead Girls’ Dance (Morganville Vampires Book #2) by Rachel Caine (Rating 3.5 Wine Glasses)

Posted November 20, 2010 by Felicia S in Uncategorized / 0 Comments


From Goodreads:  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.

Publisher: NAL Jam
Purchased: Purchased from Amazon

What I Loved: Claire continues to be such a unique character for a YA Novel. She is growing stronger, less mousy, and you start to get the impression that she is important to the vampires of Morganville.  This book continues the story quite nicely!  You learn more about Shane, Micheal, and Eve and by the end you know that our awesome foursome have a lot to deal with in Morganville. 

What I Liked:  Usually it is the romantic elements of YA that make me go ICK because they are so angsty.  However, Shane and Claire just kind of fall into each other in a very sweet way.  Eve and Micheal too, there is not alot of angst and yet you still get that none of their love journeys will be simple.  It is so refreshing that I just want to hug Rachel Caine for presenting it that way!

Complaints:  I did not really have any with this one. 

Why I gave it a 3 (on goodreads): This is more like a 3.5!  This was such a fun fast read that probably would have gotten a 4 but I wanted it to be a little longer (never a bad thing)!

Who I would recommend it too:  This is great for YA PNR readers and I would say PNR readers that liked the Vampire Academy.
