Grade 7 Up-As this story opens, Destiny and Livvy are completing their summer jobs as camp counselors. Their mother committed suicide only months before, and they found the camp a healing environment. Little did they know that one of the other counselors, a mysterious and very handsome young man with an Italian accent, would be the cause of much tragedy and distress for the twins in upcoming weeks. While at camp, Renz had drawn each teen away, revealed his true identity, and then sucked her blood. His ritual was interrupted with Destiny, however, and she did not reciprocate, making her a neophyte. Renz then followed her home to await the full moon and another opportunity, but animals and even some of the twins' friends turn up dead while he waits-all of their blood completely drained from their bodies. This is standard fare for Stine-short chapters each ending with a hook, very little character development, and predictable story lines. There are a few surprises, but nothing particularly innovative. However, teens will immediately gravitate to the teenage girls on the cover and the enticing title, and Stine's many fans will be satisfied.Kimberly L. Paone, Elizabeth Public Library, NJ
