This is a compilation of the two books thus-far written for this series. The first book, Dangerous Girls, introduces the reader to Destiny and Livvy Weller, twin sisters ending their jobs as summer camp councilors before the start of their senior year of high school. After all the kids have gone, the councilors and the junior councilors have one last good time together, and Destiny finds herself walking in the woods with the gorgeous head life-guard, Renz Angelina. Little does she know, but Renz ...more

I love R. L. Stine, so of course I loved this book. I have been a huge fan of his since I was 13 and started reading his Goosebumps series. He is just an awesome author. And I am not ashamed to admit that I own almost all the Goosebumps movies.

The book has two sisters, Destiny and Livvy. Their mother dies and they are told that she committed suicide. They of course couldn't figure out why their mom would want to leave them, and later on they find out the truth.

The book starts off with the girls

So after two days of putting off reading this book, I finally took the time to read it today. I have to say, it didn't really let me down. R.L. Stine has been one of my favorite childhood authors since I first discovered the goosebumps series so I anticipated that this would have at least one or two shocks in it but it had MANY. I'll try to keep this spoiler free.

I really hated Livvy and felt sympathy for Destiny. I mean, how does one put up with a girl like Livvy? So there were some things I di

Bitten is an amazing book for people with an interest in mysteries and vampires. The book is about two sisters Destiny and Livvy. They are trying to keep the fact that they had gotten bitten a secret. One sister sways to the dark side and one sticks with the plan. Who will it be who turns against her sister? Which girl has entered the dark side and will she be able to be pulled out? They both want to live to see the full moon but who will make it there? Who will survive? The purpose the author ...more

Destiny Weller narrates the adventurous story of how her and her twin sister, Livvy, got bitten by a vampire at Camp Blue Moon. Bitten is about a girl and her twin sister and how they got bitten by a vampire at summer camp. They have to search their town for a cure that will turn them back into humans. This book is very descriptive and has a lot of surprises. It also has a little bit of romance. Bitten is a good example of a fantasy book because it has a lot of vampires that turn into creatures ...more

This is one of the weirdest books I've ever read. Really. I mean it has all the things that make a classical vampire book. Vampires turning into bats, Vampires rubbing their hands together sinisterly while saying "Yes, YES." I'm telling you classical vampire novel. Weird. What's up with Renz. He sees Deborah (Destiny and Livvy's mom) as Laura, he sees her daughters as Laura. How creepy is that.

Also, just when I think: "Hey, this a good ending to a chapter" Stine ruins it by saying some other st

it's obvious the author was trying *hard* to be unique in his character names.


it's so obvious. I want to finish it b/c I started it, but it's almost painful to read b/c I know what is going to be said or done - NOT b/c I've read it before (I HAVEN'T), it's. just. obvious.


I'm DONE! Phew. It didn't suck, but I don't have to read it ever again.

Funny how they bundle books into one with a flashy new cover and kids nowadays think they are reading something new. Especially stuff by R.L. Stine and Christopher Pike.
I may not be a teen anymore but I guess I will always have a soft spot for these authors and their "safe" horror and that is what keeps me re-visiting these stories as I stumble across them in their new look.
Nothing but typical R.L. Stine through and through in this one. I know that I had read "Dangerous Girls" previous to readi

It was awesome!
P.E.
Bitten was the story of twin sisters Livvy and Destiny and their encounters with vampires.

The first thing I noticed was that it was easy to see who was the "good" sister and the "bad" sister early on. They were completely different from each other, so much that at times I couldn't believe how they possibly liked each other. It also made me not overly like them as characters. Livvy was selfish and impulsive while Destiny was so kind, caring and a bit whiny.

Destiny cried a lot and I know she had

I was too old for R. L. Stine when these books were originally published, and I probably would not have bought this book except for the fact that it was $4. I can't resist cheap books, even if they might not be something that I'd buy otherwise. I also sometimes like reading books that remind me of my younger reading years, though I always preferred Christopher Pike to R. L. Stine.

Technically, they are two different books, so I am going to do them separately and give them o

Let me just say that R.L. Stine is the one who sparked my passion for reading several years ago, and for that I thank him! When I was younger I couldn't get enough of his Goosebumps and Fear Street books. So when I bought this book, I was feeling nostalgic and eager to channel my inner twelve-year-old again. I read this book before Halloween, because when I think of this holiday, I think of R.L. Stine. This book is actually two books combined into one. The first book is called "Dangerous Girls" ...more

I love R.L. Stine. I remember when I was little I would always ask the librarian for his books and could not wait till the next one is out. So when I saw this book on the shelf at Target I could not resist and bought it. I was glad that I did because this book rocked!


The first story talks about the sisters becoming vampires. We meet an obsessive vampire who is drawn to the girls because they look like his long lost love. In turn, the girls fight their nature doing whatever it takes to find the r

R. L . Stine was a staple in my child hood, I always seemed to have a book of his in my hands at all times when I was younger whether it be from Goosebumps series, or from the Fear Street series. I have also read his adult novel Superstition. I am going to say that R.L.Stine writes much better in the adult world other then he feels he needs to use language constantly.


So when R.L.Stine started writing more books I thought why not take a trip back in time. So my question is do teenagers really ta

Well first, this book is about vampires.

Shocker there.

Secondly, the vampires aren't like the ones from Twilight that sparkle in the sun or the ones that have to drink immortal elixer, no. These vampires are the ones that live forever, suck blood and terrorize people.

In the book there are twins, Destiny and Lizzy who end up being bitten by the same vampire while they are camp. The reason why the vampire bit them? Well they looked like the girl he loved that got killed. To be with her again, th

The first book in this book was much better then the second book. I liked the story and how it was written. The second book was writte from a certain point then would go back to a certain point in the story, then go forward and back. I thought this made the story not flow as well as it could have if it was just written from a point and moved forward. The story it self was different from what is written today on vampires. This book does not use the Romantized vampire commonly thought of as a vamp ...more

I enjoyed this book because I kept finding myself wanting to know how it would end. Dee and Livvy are twins who spend the summer counseling at a children’s camp to escape their own troubles. They get bitten by a vampire while at camp and have to find a cure before the next full moon in order to restore themselves to human. While searching for the cure, they learn more about their hometown than they ever wanted to know. While I guessed some of the plot twists, others left me surprised. Definitely ...more

The Dangerous Girls is a pretty average teenage vampire series, but if you are looking for something to kill time with, you might well pick this series up, the major plot-twists are enjoyable. At least I appreciate that the vampires in the stories are those traditional ones (drink blood, can transform into bat/animals, go out at night, can't see themselves in mirrors, etc), the author didn't shy away from killing supporting characters in meaningful ways, the sexy pretty boy vampire is being reve ...more

Bitten follows twin sisters, Destiny & Livvy, as they return home from summer camp only to discover that vampires are invading their small town. And they are smack-dab in the middle of it all - they are also craving blood - they need it. Can they keep it a secret? Will they become full fledged vampires?

Bitten is a fast-paced easy read. But on the same token, it's also lacking some of Stine's hook and pizzazz that are in his stories for younger readers.

I enjoyed it, but it isn't in my top r

Ah, R.L. Stine, you were there for me when I was just a teenager who wanted to read semi-scary books. (Of course, so was L.J. Smith, Christopher Pike, and Zoe Daniels, but I digress). This is mostly the same as all the others. Girls get turned into ghouls (for the non-White-Wolf sect out there, the book calls them "neophytes", almost-but-not-yet vampires) at camp; Girls return home and freak out; Girls start feeding on family pets and best friends; One of the girls finds the truth and is CURED!, ...more

i thought this was dark which is good because its a vampire book after all. i had high expectations of this book because RL Stine wrote it but i have to say it was kinda like a typical RL Stine book with a cliffhanger at the end of every chapter so it got kind repetitive and predictable. and also, the main characters (Dee and Livvy) were kind of annoying. i thought livvy was the best candidate for "worst sister ever". i didnt really like the ending but it was ok. i think the characters were very ...more

I grew up reading R.L. Stine's Goosebumps series, so when I saw his name on a Vampire book I just had to stop and pick it up! This book encompasses two books: Dangerous Girls and Taste of Night. The characters in this anthology are fun and the plot is a new spin on becoming a vampire. It contains the same thrilling amounts of twists and turns that you would expect from R.L.Stine, with an appeal to a teen and adult audience. These stories were fast reads, and I highly recommend them!
Kristi Lynn
The reason I read this book is being that I read R.L. Stine books growing up. Apparently my taste has changed.

The book was alright. As you can tell, it is an omnibus of 'Dangerous Girls' & 'The Taste of Night'. 'Dangerous Girls' was the better one. As for 'The Taste of Night', eh, it was hard to follow at times. It skipped around to different times periods within a month then a two week period. Like I said, hard to follow.

Hubby got for me from the library so i had to stop reading the one i really wanted to read to read this one. and boy was it painful. to be honest i finnished the first book (it's 2 books in one) but i just could not continue. it was almost predicably idiotic. i suppose i will finnish it eventually cuz i usually don't start a book and not finnish it. i like r.l.stine but some of the works that has been done are painful to read.
N.L. Riviezzo
When I was younger, I was a fan of RL Stine's work but never read the Dangerous Girls series. Sadly, I found it boring. Perhaps if I was my younger self (and there wasn't today's YA selections), I may have enjoyed. Unfortunately, the writing was too watered down compared to other YA vampire-oriented books (and no, I am not referring to Twilight...). I did enjoy the fact that the vampires in this are a bit unhinged but I did want more.

This was a bargain rack book find for me, 3 dollars! And I totally loved it. Of course, I was going into the book biased. R L Stine was my favorite author as a kid. I read and owned every Goosebumps book--glad-fully passed them on to my niece for her reading pleasure. So, I was not disappointed when I read this book. It was entertaining and not too gory with a splash of friendship, family and romance mixed in. Overall a good book!
