Adopted by a world famous designer, Natasha and Marciano have always loved their lives of glamor. On their 21st birthday, the twins' adopted mother, Maude, reveals that they will be traveling to New York for fashion week along with their older sister, Betty. Upon arrival they discover that supernatural creatures populate all corners of the fashion world. Supernaturals are cursed to work in the fashion industry for all eternity, as they can do no harm to anyone by working in such a business. Not only this, but Natasha and Marciano are members of a rare breed of supernaturals: The Thirteens, the most powerful of all supernaturals.
Candice Brown, rival designer of the twins' mother, is also the head of Caligae, an organization meant to keep all supernaturals in line. Tired of being controlled by the curse, Candice seeks to upend the fashion industry and damage the lives of many in order to break free from the centuries old curse. When she discovers that Marciano and Natasha could ruin her plan, Candice decides that the twins must be removed from the equation by any means necessary.
What follows is a complex, suspenseful adventure as Marciano, Natasha, Betty, and several others attempt to prevent Candice Brown from sabotaging fashion week.Read more ›
All kinds of supernatural beings show up in Fangs and Stilettos, from vampires and werewolves to oracles and telepaths, and the story is an absolute delight from start to finish. While most books, movies, or shows in this genre have dark overtones, DiFiore keeps it light and fun throughout with witty and charismatic characters that drive the story and keep the reader on their toes. You'll fall in love with the fabulous Marciano and his twin sister Natasha as they discover the secrets of their beloved fashion industry and the curse that binds them to it. The crackling dialogue, secret plans, and conspiracies that are revealed in this book will keep you reading until you find out everything the supernaturals have been hiding.
What I most enjoyed about this book was the general lack of overbearing romance that seeps into and takes over many young adult books. Instead, Fangs centers on adventure, family and friendship, and the loyalty that holds these relationships together. This is a refreshing message to be sending to young adult readers, who are at an age where romance can seem like the be-all and end-all of life. I also loved how believable the setting was - I found myself wondering if maybe this really is how the fashion world works. DiFiore seamlessly weaves the reality of Fashion Week into this fantasy tale, and it makes for a truly fun and magical ride.Read more ›
Fashion keeps a deep, dark secret - supernatural beings (vampires, werewolves, ghouls, telepaths, even amazons) work in every aspect of the industry. An ancient curse designed to protect human beings bind Supernaturals to fashion and the clothing industry in order to keep them from politics, the military, or other arenas that may affect regular people's lives. Keeping the Supernaturals in line is an organization called Caligae - for eons they ruled and regulated the supernaturals, but that would soon change. Caligae head and fashion maven Candice Brown has hit upon a way to circumvent the curse, expose Supernaturals to the world, and set them free from the world of fashion.
Enter adopted twins Natasha and Marciano Genet. Natasha and her foster sister Betty worked for her foster mom's fashion house Maude by Maude, while Marciano worked as a personal assistant at the rival fashion Haus of Simone across the street. Other than having to share one bathroom between the three them, life was pretty good.Read more ›
