The highly anticipated sequel to Jessica’s Guide to Dating on the Dark Side
It’s one thing to find out you’re a vampire princess. It’s a whole other thing to actually rule. Newly married Jessica Packwood is having a hard enough time feeling regal with her husband, Lucius, at her side. But when evidence in the murder of a powerful elder points to Lucius, sending him into so...more

This could have been so, SO much better if the story had a different focus!
There is a reason why romance novels end with a wedding, sometimes followed by a few pages of honeymoon shmexing (do not expect it in Jessica Rules the Dark Side, it is a very young YA novel). When the lovers are bound together for eternity, when there are no more misunderstandings and tension, how do you continue writing about a married couple and keep things hot and dynamic between them? Only a few authors can...more

Note that there would be spoilers, I noticed how my reviews contained them. Winks. :)
I think this book is recommended to those fans who wanted to see what Lukey and Jess' marriage life will be. Although the entire story was about Jessica becoming a full-pledged vampire queen.
At first half of her training, i wanted to slap her hard. Really!! She was weak and...more

Seppur carino anche questo, ho trovato aspetti che non mi hanno soddisfatta. Prima di tutto la narrazione centrale è stata più lenta del solito e la mancanza attiva della p...more
What I was expecting from this book and what happened were really different. I was expecting Jessica to have grown and matured and be confident in what she was doing. Instead, I just wanted to hurt her throughout most of the book. She second guessed everything and pretty much let others control her and didn't seem to catch on t...more
I'm going to ask Beth Fantaskey to adopt me so I'll be able to get my hands on her computer when she's done writing this book!! haaha xDD *joke*
Oh... and by the way... I'm going crazy until this...more
The plot picks up with Jessica already married to Lucius and now a full-time princess struggling with her duties. She's worried about not being good enough for Lucius, not being confident or knowledgeable enough to rule the vamps and not being strong enough to fulfill the tasks given to her.
Things get harder when Lucius is jailed for a crime she's sure--pretty sure--he didn't commit. If he'd convicted, he wi...more
THE DARK VAMPIRE LORE IS BACK TO RULE!
The Dark Vampire Lore is powerfully back in Jessica Rules the Dark Side! This time, Fanaskey transport us to the land of Romanian with castles, Carpathians, blood, stakes, love, friendship, betrayal and etc! Fantaskey definitely know how to turn a teen paranormal love story into a great Vampire novel that reaches beyond of today' s typical good vampire and brings back the essence of the Classic Dark Vampire L...more
We continue off shortly after book one where Jessica and Lucius are married and beginning their reign, but soon betrayal rains on their parade. Not only does Jessica have to watch vampires staked, or leaves the meeting, but she also not only has family plotting against her, a husband soon imprisoned and a declining diet.
What I love about this series is Jessica. Sure she got more th...more
Overview: This is the companion book to Jessica’s Guide to Dating on the Dark Side. Jessica has taken on her birth name Antanasia and is now queen ruling the vampires with her husband, Lucius Vladescu. Ruling isn’t quite everything she thought it would be. There is intense pressure to gain the favor of vampires, she doesn’t quite understand, especially since it’s up to their vote whether or not her reign will continue. When Lucius is accused of murde...more
The murder mystery is very, very simple yet clever in a way. I saw the actual criminals coming from a mile away. Why the criminals have avoided suspicion seems a bit unrealistic, but how Jessica and her friends discover the truth about...more
I haven’t had the chance to read the chapters on Beth’s website that tell the story of the wedding, although I might have to go back and do that after reading this story. Jessica Rules the Dark Side begins after the honeymoon is over. Jessica is having a hard time coming into her new role as vampire princess. I liked getting to see another side of Jes...more
Each person's outlook on what is happening adds both to their charactersization and to the overall plot. Mindy and Raniero are great additions to the story. I enjoyed Mindy's outlook and why she started to suspect the person she does. It's funny and smart. Raniero is another well-done character and the ambiguity of his personality, o...more
It kept me reading and never wanting to put it down!
This second book had me wide eyed the whole time because honestly if Jessica couldn't figure out the mystery I would have freaked out!!
Finally Jessica got some balls and let go of her shy self and stood up to the elders and became a Women.
Oh Lucius, if only all guys were as sweet as you <3 Charming... Handsome..Strong! GAH!
It was so hard reading this story without him but even if he was not alw...more
Alors, pourquoi ai-je aimé ? Pour plusieurs raisons.
Tout d'abord, j'aime beaucoup les personnages qui, chacun avec une personnalité très différente, apporte son petit grain de sel da...more
The girl in the cover looks so pretty with her dress! She looks like how I imagined Jessica would be like when reading the book! I also love how she holds the stake with her other hand, showing how Jessica finally becomes a stronger character who takes hold of her powers and royalty!
Ruling a kingdom should be easy....right?
Jessica is finally living in Romania. And of course she is living with Lucius! Lucius is no l...more

OK, now onto my review...
Jessica Rules the Dark Side is the continuing story of Jessica Packwood-- normal high school teenager-- and Lucius Vladescu-- heir to a vampire kingdom-- after they tie the knot and take vows to love each other for all eternity. From the cliff-hanger chapter endings that kept you reading in suspense the entire way through...more
