Editorial Reviews

Review

"As ever, Gina's feisty, funny narration carries the day.  Gina never fails to please, as she strides down the runway of afterlife with just the right mix of humor, make-up advice, youthful lust that never crosses the line and a kung-fu style all her own.
This one doesn't miss a beat." - Kirkus Reviews

"Readers who appreciate Diver's light, dry humor will welcome back feisty Gina and her hunky boyfriend, Bobby... a welcome lighthearted departure from gloomy vampire romance." --Booklist

"Diver spins an action-packed story that is filled with humor. Gina is a sassy heroine who tackles issues and challenges with proper vampire style." --School Library Journal

"Diver successfully creates a vampire teen who is active and assertive and has no time for angst. Gina has a biting, sarcastic voice that makes the Vamped books quick and entertaining reads."--VOYA

Gina has got to be one of my fave protagonists. She's got wit, personality, and let's not forget good taste. She always knows how to fight a good fight and is up for any challenge. Let's face it, out of all the vamps out there, nobody can compare to Gina Covello.

If you crave action-packed adventure mixed with a hint of humor and fun, this is the book for you.

A Fangtastic sequel!

Format: Paperback
Gina Covella, the Macy's-worshipping teen fashionista from Ohio turned vampire after an imprudent neck-nibbling, is back for a third adventure, and it's a delight. Author Lucienne Diver improves with each new book, and her characters are growing and becoming more real and likeable as the series continues.

*Fangtastic* launches right into the action one week after the conclusion of *ReVamped,* during which the young vampire team have been recuperating with spa treatments and pedicures (well, Gina and her friend Marcy, at least, Bobby not so much). They're yanked out of their R&R by news reports of a grisly multiple murder of a family in Tampa, Florida. The Feds who "handle" the young vampires tell them that the chief suspect in the murders is a seventeen-year-old high school student who hangs out with the "vampire community" in the area.

By that, they don't mean undead vampires like Gina, but, as one Fed explains, "people who behave like vampires--both energy vampires and bloodsuckers with prosthetic fangs" who frequent a Goth club in Tampa. The twist is that the club itself is owned and run by real vampires, the ones who are so interested in Gina and Bobby. The Feds tell the V-team that they have two objectives: catch the perpetrators of the murder, and infiltrate the group of vampires running the club. To do both, their plan is to have Gina get in to see the vampires and promise them that she'll persuade Bobby to join them if they'll cooperate with her.

In short order (no offense intended to five-foot-tall Gina), the team and their "handlers" are all down in Tampa, with false names and identities and a rockin' Goth wardrobe to get into the club.

Format: Paperback
This book is the third in a series of YA vampire novels. Each book (VAMPED, REVAMPED, and now FANGTASTIC) is better than the last. Diver's snarky teen diva turned reluctant Fed is a fun and unique protagonist, and her quirky team of cohorts remind me of an undead Scooby gang. The action is fast and furious, and the book is a quick and easy read, suitable for anyone from a reluctant reader to an adult reader looking for something amusing and different. Highly recommended.
