Lucy Hellenberg is not your typical Pacific Cedar High student. Because in between hanging out with her friends, hating her hair and her math teacher, and trying to decide whether she should dump her on-again off-again boyfriend, she has to deal with a father who refuses to go outside and a house that bears way too much resemblance to the set of The Munsters.

And that's n

It was a nice book, but I admit I thought it would be better.
The story was original and good, but there was something missing. The fact is that I couldn't relate much with the character of Lucy. I just couldn't feel how Lucy felt. Her story with Vic was short (at least in the book) and we didn't get to like them as a couple. But then when Christopher arrives, it's all so rushed and I don't feel how they feel. It's like reading of someone falling in love at first sight but with no emotion there.

Cute. This is about the descendants of the original Lucy, Mina and Dracula set in a Seattle high school. Quick, fast, fun read.

Lucy Hellenberg lives a somewhat a-typical high school life. Her sixteenth birthday is approaching, but she's not too concerned with it. What bothers her is her father's inability to leave their house, a place that bears a strong resemblance to the one the Munsters of television fame lived in. She worries about whether or not Vic, her sometime-boyfriend, will ask her to the Homecoming Dance. She wonders if she'll ever survive algebra with a teacher like Mrs. Ru

I have to admit this is the first book where things just really didn't add up for me.... I mean usually I read books and I pick really good ones and they turned out great but this one it was good but there were some things in the story that does baffled me. The first thing is when Lucy is asked to go out with Vic and she finds out he's a vampire why would she still go out with him when she finally learned about his past the thing everyone would do is run away that didn't make sense another thing ...more

Having learned on her sixteenth birthday that it is her destiny to fight Count Dracula (alive, sort of, in Seattle), Lucy tries to save herself and her friends while wondering whether the boy of her dreams is one of the living dead. I really enjoyed this take on the story of Dracula. Anyone who loves the Count or Buffy should check out this funny bit of Young Adult Chick Lit.

Although I usually don't enjoy vampire books, I actually liked this one. In the beginning it seemed like one of those superficial books that is fun to read, but doesn't affect the reader to a deeper level, however towards the end, the book takes an unexpected twist. It teaches you that there is nothing in this world as important as family and friends.

This book is a really interesting story based on a myth about vampire. Lucy Hellenberg is the main character who discovered her identity as a girl who inherited her mother, grand mother and great grand mother's gene as a fighter against vampire Dracula. If you want to find out more about whether or not she defeated the vampire, read this book!!

This showed a lot of things I thought was missing from Vampire books. Vampires are EVIL, the are not the 'oh sparkle' thing that has now plauged the vampires of current authors, and it makes Vampies go into WOLF form. that is awesome. WOLF, not bat but a wolf. that's how I write vampires. I loved it, I hope Conrad writes more

Imagine yourself being a teenager turning 16 who has to fight Daracula?!!!!! I loved the book, because it shows all the stuff teenager is going through and the conclusion she takes. Your dreams serve as a trap into the vampire's kingdom? Read this awesome book to know the end....

Shelves: paranormal, tween
very light vampire fiction, bad teen voice but enough indicators to amuse the 11-12 set, no cussing (she actually spells B-word), or bloody violence, good girls win but a little bit of drama and dress shopping in the middle.

This is what I wrote in my journal back in 2007. The book was OK until the author rushed the ending with a bullshit way to kill Dracula but I will just leave it at that.

This book was super slow and very cliche. Easy plot and characters. It was an easy read, but I definately wouldn't recommend it nor would I ever read it again. Waste of time.

A book set in Seattle, written by someone who has obviously never been here. One of the characters has a peaceful cabin in what seems to be the center of downtown.
