Let me spell it out for y'all:
- starting with the characters of course! Annoying, childish, and pointless. The MC was irritating and boring, mean and underdeveloped.
- I couldn't finish it and banished it to my cloud drive thingy only bad books go.
- This book honestly reminded me of 'Thirty Days Of Night' ya know, that one movie where a small town is hunted by vampires harmed by light but obviously, there is no sun because of the 30 days of night? No? Well that's what it reminded me of but of course the movie is much better.
I guess that's it for now but them again, I don't finish the whole book.
No I wont recommend to a friend, no I won't read again or finish it for that matter and no it SO was not worth it!
Brin and her friends think that doing their class assignment at the Bodie ghost town is going to be easy as cake even though they are doing it during the winter. But not everything is as it seems even the vampires themselves. In the midst of the terror is one option for a safe return to a normal world or what they think will be and that is Paul, he isn't like the other monsters starving for their blood. He helps them escape along with Brin's friend Ash. Even though they have made it out of Bodie their not in the clear yet. Another horror awaits them on the way home.
I enjoyed this cast of characters. The only thing I didn't like about this story was in the grammar. Instead of using "ask" it was "said" even though it was clear a question was asked.
I received a complimentary copy from author/publisher in return for an honest review.
So--imagine if you will-- The Lost Boys, Scream, and From Dusk 'Til Dawn had a dirty little menage.
Yep, then you have The Vampire Underground!
This book wasn't just clever with the dialogue, but it told an actual scary vampire story! I mean I was like, "Oh my god!" about 90% of the book! This was a true horror story. The whole thing was well paced, it made me feel like Joss Whedon had written a young adult book, and I kept laughing out loud. I literally have casted every character in my head and I'm waiting for the movie version of this because it could so work!
I had tingles as I was reading this and I found it really had to put down the book at all! Nothing about this book went wrong! They were teens--acting like teens--and the movie puns! Brilliant! I love that they teachers name was Mr. Barker. I saw that instantly mentioned Clive in my progress and BAH! Ash asks if he's related!
This is how young adult books should be done. They need to have more of these. They even had a sort of kind of love interest but that plot device didn't dominate the story. It was this small part, but I fear readers may latch onto that. Or I can hope most readers have matured beyond the need for some tragic love story!
I highly recommend this book! It is awesome! It is well written, it is one of the top books I have read this year!
