NIGHT LIFE is another guilty pleasure in the VAMPS series by Ms. Collins. The plot thickens in the second installment.

Lilith Todd has learned the truth that Cally Monture seeks. Lilith knows who Cally's father is. After the two girls fought in the first book, they've managed to keep their distance at the beginning of NIGHT LIFE.

Cally has become friends with the Maledetto friends as well as Melinda Mauvais, one of Lilith's ex-friends. The foursome gets

Being a fan of the first book, Vamps, I obviously adored this one as well. :D Though the writing itself isn't the best, the plot makes up for it. Vampires being able to transform to an animal of their family as well as a bat. Two animals. Awesome. Nancy combines the classic version of vampires and the contemporary version of vampires. Classic version - transforming into a bat, roaming the city at night and having no reflections. Contemporary version - being able to walk around in the daylight ...more

Add "Gossip Girls" fashion, trendy night spots, high school with vampires and you have a recipe for a YA series.

The fashion details made me yawn at times, but it was worth it to see what Cally's new adventures were. I wish there was more about her relationship with Peter, a vampire hunter, and it was interesting to see how her birth father fits into her life. I hope that this series develops more because I want to see more about Cally and her struggles with being half-vampire and half-witch. I

Fast paced, kinda trashy/dramatic, rich vampire society... a guilty pleasure. Brain candy for my day off :)

A great sequel to Vamps by the go-to writer on nosferatu. Bone-chilling and captivating. Don't miss it!

To me this book just served as a buffer between books that mattered. Yes it was good with enough drama to keep it interesting, but nothing happened in the book. The first in the series had a major plot, and as far as I can tell the third book will as well. I like the characters and their intermingling plot twists, but this is another fast easy read that serves as a break from the more advanced story lines of other series.

I did not enjoy this as much as the first book in the series. I felt the writing was weaker and I've never been a fan of the cliffhanger ending. I will read the third book when it comes out in July to see if it improves to the level of the first.

It was a great second book in the series with a serious cliff hanger at the end making you want to read the third and final book immediately. I recommend getting all three books at once when reading them!

Now this book was a little bit better. It gave me a better insight of what was going on with all the characters. And I never thought that, that guy would be her father. He's like her mortal enemy! Can't wait til the next book.

Argh! This series is such a soap opera in format - it stops right at a climactic point and you have to wait for the next book to be published to find out what happens! Unfortunately, the next book isn't due out until July 28th! I may expire from anticipation before then!

After reading book one in these series I wanted to read the second book too. I wasn't disappointed.
The story continues. We get to know more about the mean characters in the book.
Only down side is the ending, now I have to read book three too. But I don't mind that.

This is a fantastic book. Nancy Collins did a great job with the cliff hanger, that keeps you wanting more.Also the mix with the fashion world gives this book a twist you don't really expect.

I only read one of this series, but found it to be a cute short story, I am sure if I had read the additional 2 books it would of made a bit more sense.

I really like this series. Cally is still having a hard time. Lilith gets what's coming to her. These books have huge cliff-hangers. I must read the next book!

Great followup to the first book. The storyline jumped right into gear and did not slow down, even at the end. On pins and needles until I can get the third book in the series.

This book was very poorly written and after three chapters, it still wasn't very interesting, so I didn't finish reading it. I would not recommend it.
