I read the first book to this duology last month and I really enjoyed it, so I was automatically excited to pick up it's sequel. I was definitely disappointed.

This book was absolutely unnecessary. I'm just not for sure why Stine thought this book was a good idea besides the $$$$ that would come with it.

Dangerous Girls should have been a standalone.

You know what? I'm changing this from two stars to one. This book pissed me off.

Some very major inconsistencies:

1. Livvy and Destiny were not identical twins yet one is continuously mistaken for the other;
2. The death of Ross sparked Livvy's anger towards Destiny, with the former vowing to avenge, even til death, yet Livvy seems enthralled by Patrick's dimples and would also want to kill for Patrick. Makes you wonder if the feelings towards Ross were genuine or not... Or maybe just an inconsistency;
3. Ross and the other vampire girl died with stakes in their hearts with the

Mkay, so this book was an improvement from predecessor (which was really quite good to begin with). I felt that the themes were a little more mature and the writing was geared a bit more towards Stine's older (read: teenaged) audience.
That being said, there were a few inconsistencies I'd've liked Stine to explain. Those that were prevalent:
1.) the sudden appearance of clothing/lack thereof (from the novel) during the transformation scenes
2.) certain vampires crumbling to ash after being killed,

Its been a couple of months, since Livvy and Ross went of together to become vampires. Though it seems like Livvy's life has fell apart now that her sister is gone. Her dad always comes home late because he is trying to find a cure for Livvy and her brother, Mike shut himself down and he stays up in his room pretending he is a vampire. Then Destiny meet Harrison, a boy who is nice a sweet and he really likes Destiny. Then theres is Livvy. She lives in an abandoned house full of vampires. She als ...more

I never knew there was a sequal untill later on. The majority of the book was pretty awesome. I mean vampires is starting to become a repetitive subject now. Other than that, it is a great sequal to Dangerous Girls. I have to say though, the first book is better. It is quite different from other vampire books. To me, the ending leaves you thinking which is both good and bad. The good thing is that it didn't have a happy ending, and it was a little twist. The bad part was that you do have a few m ...more

I decide to reread the series a few days ago. This is one of my favorite books that has to deal with vampires. I just loved how the two book series went and how it didn't drag on. I wish it would have been made in a longer series but I deny to complain. It's a good book to read if you are starting off in the vampire genre territory. It's basically about twins and how they become vampires or one does and the other does later on. I won't say much more cause it will definitely spoil things. But it ...more

This book was wonderful from start and it never got boring. This book keeps you reading. I have not yet to find a part where i thought it was boring. I recommand this meaning for girls just because the main character is a girl but i think if u like vampires then its great for you. Ive not read much books on vampires but this book got me hooked just by the first page or two. Its pretty easy to read and understand. I rate it 4 star just cause i think im sure theres a book i would love even more th ...more

This one was way better than the first one, despite the major inconsistencies. For instance, Destiny and Livvy were fraternal twins in the first book, yet are mistaken for each other several times here. Also, the last book started at the end of summer and they are graduating in this one, yet it's stated to only be "a few weeks later"... Just to name two examples.

I liked the ending, but I do wish we had gotten a little more closure.

When I read the first book, I figured I'd never read the sequel because I didn't think I would ever find it. Needless to say, I found it. . .And loved it!
Livvy is a vampire now, and Destiny misses her twin very much. Mikey (their little brother) is just torn apart, and starts to do strange things.
With unexpected deaths, both girls come to hate each other. Then, near the very end, they are brought together by one shared need: each other.
I loved it as much as the first book, maybe more!!!

i picked this book up for free, thinking (mistakenly) that it would at least be an amusing way to relive my younger days of reading goosebumps books by bedside table-light, but instead, this was just terrible.

it was repetitive, cliched, pandering, and very, very clearly an attempt to cash in on the whole twilight craze. there is a way to write for young adults and teens without dumbing your content down. this is not it.

I said in my review for Dangerous Girls that it didn't need a sequel and I stand by my statement. This book was bad. Characters turn into whiny hypocrites. The book seems to forget that Destiny and Livvy aren't identical twins and has people mistaking them for one another. And if Livvy really wanted to live her own life and get away from her family...WHY DID SHE STAY IN HER HOMETOWN AND WHY DID NO ONE EVER RECOGNIZE HER WHEN SHE WENT OUT!?!?!?!?!?!

This was a decent sequel to the first book. By the end of this book I sort of hoped for another. I felt like I had a few questions left unanwsered. The characters in this book were all likable. I loved how the book was centered on twins and vampires. The things that are reveiled are definitely worth the read.

I didn't like this book very much. The story and character personalities change immensely since the first book! They were always talking about getting trashed and they were always going to clubs and drinking beers. This book wasn't for me. But it was scarier than the first book, and that's what I was looking for, but I don't really recommend this book to people.

This sequel was even better than the first. DATTON was gripping and thrilling and made you want more. The ending was eerie and exciting and these action packed books are sure to thrill any reader.
Highly recommended.

This book was a decent follow up to the first book. I remember when I found out ther was a sequel to Dangerous Girls I was super excited and needed to get my hands on it. Like the first book this one keeps you reading and reading till the end. The twists and turns I was not expecting. A good read.

Taste of night is about a girl her name is Destiny Weller she has a twin sister,but her twin sister Livy chose to become a vampire and she left Destiny behind. Destiny would do anything to bring her twin sister back but there's nothing to do unless Destiny decides to be a vampire too .

I thought this was a great conclusion to the story of the sisters. It was well written and geared toward teens in every way. Stine always has a decent plot line that goes by quickly, leaving readers turning pages as fast as they can.
