The sequel to "The Book of Common Dread", I found this one lacking compared to the first in the series. I will admit that Monahan does a good job of expanding his new vampire lore that he established in Common Dread, but the plot itself seems to fall short. One of the great things about Common Dread was how commonplace he made it seem taking place in a college town to a small group of people. Blood of the Covenant strays away from that and it seems like Monahan forced his characters into a more ...more
Picks up right where The Book of Common Dread left off. Since my favoite part of the first book was the unique interpretaton of the vampire lore, I was pleased that much of this book expanded that further. A must-read for anyone who enjoys the analysis of vampiric existence, as Monahan presents a much more plausible scenario than some.

Now here's some scary fiction! For anyone who has ever spent quality time alone in an archives or other research library and lost all track of the outside world, Monahan's book will raise those little hairs on the back of your neck. This is the best sort of vampire fiction--the stuff that makes you ponder "What if...".
This book begins where the previous one left off and I think that it is even better than the first. Simon and Frederika are out to rescue the scrolls from the vampires trying to destroy them. But has Fredericka gone to the other side?

A decent vampire book with a slightly new twist on the backstory to vampires. It is a good read with lots of twists in the plot. I was a tad disappointed since I had loved Monahans other books so much.
not bad, but saying it is "best vampire novel since Ann Rice's 1st 2---?" must be a lot of bad vampire nvels since then....Monahan is like the clive cussler of vampire novels

It was good. Again, another book I didn't know was a series, so I ended up starting in the middle on accident. Good as a stand-alone though.
This book freaked me out when I read it in high school. Scary book!
