Claire Danvers faces more challenges from both college and the undead in this second entry in the Morganville Vampires series.~First Line: "It didn't happen, Claire told herself."
~Last Line: "Claire opened the draw and found a pen."
Review: Caine has definitely won me over. There's no way I won't be speedily finishing the Morganville Vampires series. Corny, full of action, and fun enough for any teen to understand, The Dead Girls' Dance takes Claire and her roommates on yet another journey.
Now that Claire knows why Michael disappears every sunrise, she isn't curious and desperate to learn more about him. But she's till got lots to learn about the way things work in Morganville, Texas. To add one more thing to the list of bad occurrences, Claire's parents decide to come to town to visit her at the college. As you've probably already mumbled, this was not a good thing for Claire.
Then something very unexpected happens -- Brandon, a vampire, is murdered. Everyone is shocked, even Claire and her roommates, who didn't exactly like him. The main vampires blame Shane's dad for the crime, but as his dad is MIA, they imprison Shane himself. I mean, personally I don't think it's fair, but they found his dad in the end. He and his gangster-helpers (LOL not really; they're bikers) broke Shane out of jail. That's when the vampires use Claire as bait. I know right? Just marvelous. . .
But anyway, this novel was an awesome sequel to Glass Houses, and I'm once again happy that I started this series :).
"The heat was making her feel slow and disconnected. She wanted to pour the cold water over her face, but realized just in time -- again-- about the makeup. Stupid makeup."
