A really good follow up to Vampire High! The presentation of vampires by this author is very original--their social structures and culture (complete with dark secrets, an old language, and historical background) is well thought-out. The first book was about an outsider, a normal guy, healing the rift between vampires (jenti) and humans (gadje) that lived in New Sodom. In this next book the main character discovers old feuds and resentments within the vampire community and has to deal with an abrasive and alienated cousin who comes to live with his family. Lots of metaphor and mirroring of situations. Well done.
