Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"Darren begins to grow a bit as a person...making this book as interesting to read as the first installment....This series, although grisly in detail, is still appropriate for the younger fans of the vampire genre." Teri Lesesne, VOYA

Review:

"Characters are mostly one-dimensional, and the plot plods along until the final conflict heats up the action. Although the story stands on its own, there isn't much reason to read this one aside from following the series." School Library Journal
