The Dead Girls' Dance
This entry in the series starts right where the first book left off. This left me feeling a little ...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 ...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 ...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 ...more
Don't take it seriously, it's just a fun series.
There is so much going on and the adventures just keep piling up.
I hope Caine can keep up the pace and interest throughout the whole series.
Claire is kind of an idiot (view spoiler)[who drinks an open bottle from a stranger? (hide spoiler)] but she needs to be for the story.
I hope Amelie has more time in the rest of the books, she is pretty badass!
Oh, I am mousy," she said."All this scares the hell out of me. But I don't know what else to do, sir, except try.
Even a mouse bites.”

I try to express only my most honest opinion in a spoiler free way. If you feel anything in my review is a spoiler and is not already hidden in spoiler brackets please let me know. Thank you. ...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 ...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 ...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
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
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
Claire and crew step off into even more trouble as Shane's dad has shown back up. We get to really learn about Shane's past which is even more ...more
The book begins right where the last one left off and also sets up quite a few important plot points for the next installments in the series. One of them does get kind of brushed ...more
This book picks up right where Glass Houses left off, with the aftermath of that cliffhanger. We've got ourselves a new villain in the form of Frank Collins - Shane's father - but that doesn't mean the old ones are going away. The Glass House gang still find themselves in the middle of trouble, which, honestly, could be a summary of the entire series.
Since this is a reread, I'm aware of the fact that this book is setting up a lot of important events, and introducing characters that play a bigger...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 ...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 ...more
I love how ...more
This book pretty much picks up where the last left off - with Michael dead on the floor at the hands of Shane's father.
I think this book was actually worse than the first in the series. It may have been that it took me longer to read this one and I couldn't read it straight through, but I have to say that I got really bored towards the end.
I thought Claire did some darn stupid things, I think Eve did some stupid things too, and Michael's choice was certainly ...more
