The Dead Girls' Dance (The Morganville Vampires #2)
Claire Danvers has her share of challenges---like being a genius in a school that favors beauty over brains, dealing with the homicidal girls in her dorm, and above all, finding out that her college town is overrun with vampires. On the up side, she has a great roommate (who tends to disappear at sunup) and a new boyfriend named Shane, whose vampire-hunting dad has called...more
This entry in the series starts right where the first book left off. This left me feeling a little los ...more
Some days you have to wonder how many enemies can 4 teenagers battle at the same time. As if deadly Vampires and a bunch of psychotic college girls isn't enough, now they have to survive Shane's bat-shit crazy father and his vampire-slaying crusade in a city where no one trusts them and no one is their friend.
Apart from the fact that 4 teenagers manage to do more than a hundred centuries old vampires can do, this series continues to be extremely unique. It gets more gothi ...more
I don't know what it is about you, but you confuse me unlike any other series around.
There are times that I like you and I want to get to know you better but then you go and do something stupid to turn me off, only to rekindle my interest in you a few pages later.
It's not fair, dear series.
See, you have this atmospheric-horror-thriller setting going on, keeping me at the edge of my seat, biting my fingernails, and then you send some deus ex machina to do the rescuing.
You give your ...more
I hate the characters.
I hate the story line on which this book got off.
I practically hate almost everything about this book. So, why did I read this?
I read it 'cause I'm in the mood for reading a series with around 10 books and if anyone can recommend me something better than this, I'll be very grateful.
I read the first part Glass Houses a year back, and disliked it too. The concept is just way too stupid. A 16-year old girl starts going to a college (early admission) in a s ...more
This book has some good things going on, but there are a few things that really annoyed me. The epilogue in the form of diary entries from Eve is tedious. The protagonists spend most of their time whining, and it gets to be a bit much ...more
This story was even more intense than Glass Houses. It was full of emotions throughout the whole book. Claire's decision at the book's end is heartbreaking, but so in character for her. This book was so much better than the last one. Not to disappointed as of yet, and I am not going on a rambling tyrant reveling any details as I did with Glass House. Sorry you will have to read and enjoy for yourself.
My absolute favorite and will read again and again. I strongly recommend! It has outsta ...more
The Dead Girls' Dance didn’t impress me much. I felt like the events that the story focused on weren’t so interesting, and this didn’t get me in the right mood. I didn’t think it was better than Glass Houses, and it wasn’t worse. Claire was better though. Eve and Michael were as good as ever. Shane. Meh. He bothered me many times, but in the end he was alight.
I got used to Rachel Caine’s cliffhangers so I was bracing myself for a big ...more
So far I'm finding this series just rather average. Sometimes I enjoy what's going on but at other times I find Claire to be rather annoying and some of the choices made to be laughable. I'm still kind of comparing this to som ...more
The writing is engaging and very witty. The plot was fast paced ensuring never a dull moment. It made me wonder how does Rachel Caine fit so much it to one little book.
The characters I love. Claire is such a strong heroine despite the town's craziness. I like the realtionship between Claire, Shane, Eve and Michael and how they look after one another. And how can you ...more
Though my real issues where how Claire handled the situations. Despite Monica, the mean (psycho) girl, trying to kill her in the last book Claire just kind of shrug ...more
I can't believe I wasted a second of my life in this series.
Sure, I liked Glass House even though I was ready to tear my hair out if I had to read one more fucking page of that book.
I couldn't even finish it.
Wanna know the reason why I read this?
The fucking cliffhanger.
Man, I hate those thing, they're pure evil.
Anyways, I kinda have to thank this book because I realized this series annoyed me to no end. I just wanted to skip to the end and get it over with. ...more
Amelie has placed protection on the Glass House four (Eve, Claire, Michael and Shane) but a death occurs and Shane and one of his father's biker friends is accused. Amelie has revoked her pr ...more
I love how Ra ...more
The problem is, Shane's father and his vampire slaying biker gang still arrived. And they're still looking for blood and they don't intend to leave without slaughtering as many vampires as poss ...more
This one gives more on the romantic front for the girls and it was nice to get some real clarity there because I was going back and forth, But I really enjoyed it and the romance went into some steamy territory that I really liked.
Claire continues to be a character I admire for her strength as a person, her determination for her education, as well as loy ...more
It's not thaaaaaat bad, but it's bad. The plot is silly.
Claire is in love (It's true love mom.) and will sacrifice her life for 3 people she JUST MET. (Her room mates)
You will argue that maybe she is feeling all the teenage-y love and thinks that this the guy is her soul mate.
BUt she is supposed to be smart, like genius level smart (nothing in the book showed anything to support this ...more
It's very exciting and action packed right from the first page. I really enjoyed this installment of the Morganville Vampires.
Claire may be a nerd, but she’s feisty as they come. She gets involved in all the vampire drama, and does it willingly at times. Her reasoning usually had to do with protecting her friends/roommates. And with this book, you realize her loyalty knows no bounds, ...more
I...don't know what I think about it. I liked it a lot, and I guess a lot happened, but I still have a lot of questions. And I'm still processing all the things that happened and were revealed in this one. For such a short book, a lot happened. Most of it I saw coming, but that thing at the end ...more
