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 is a high school junior. She is about to go back to school after her winter break. She is not thrilled. The only high point is her Intro to Film class. She has waited a year to take it. She and her best friend Ash are excited and ready to explore their favorite thing.
The first assignment is to make a horror movie with another genera twist. Brin’s group gets a western twist while Ash’s group gets a musical. Brin wants to direct the movie but she clashes with Anaya, the big beast of a girl, who wants to direct also. Brin ends up being shot down by her teacher and has to bend to Anaya’s dictation. She chooses to film at Bodie Ghost down on a Saturday. Brin has to choose between filming and going to her father’s grave. She chooses filming.
Once at Bodie everything goes wrong. The road is closed but Anaya pushes forward anyway. Brin keeps seeing people that shouldn’t really be there. The van gets stuck and they have to walk the rest of the way. Their ride home is in jeopardy too paired with no phone service. Then Anaya refuses to listen to reason in pursuit of filming the movie for class.
When the van is finally broken free and brought in for a filming angle, Sawyer loses control and crashes it. It flips and bursts into flames burning him badly. Brin elects to walk to the main road for help. She and Chace take off while the others stay behind. As they make their way through the cold and snow, the nightmare begins.
This is a YA horror story. It isn’t my usual taste, but it was pretty interesting. For those who like horror, it doesn’t disappoint. It has death, vampires, destruction and deceit. I couldn’t stop reading it to see what happened next. It was a hair raising story full suspense and scary situations. I give it a 3 out of 5.
That is how I felt about this book. Having read the Birthday trilogy by Brian Rowe I knew this was a ride I was willing to take. I got comfortable on the couch and dug right in. At first Brian is building the story and developing the characters. Then the story takes off and there are thrills along the twists and turns of the plot. There was humor, horror, and action along this ride. At the end I thought I was going to just unbuckle and go about my business but oh no. Brian throws in something that has me chomping at the bit to get on this ride again. Can't wait!!!
Vampire Underground is something different in the vampire genre. It's not the romantic but the horrific. I loved the idea of the underground world of the vampires. It was an underground scary circus. I kind of pictured in my mind the scene in the movie Interview with the Vampire where the vampires turned their killing into a show for an audience. It was brilliant and scary.
By far the character that stole the show and my affections was Ash. OMG, he was the humor to the story. A movie buff that loves the horror genre, doesn't put up with remakes of classics, and is a loyal friend. He was the comic relief to the seriousness of what was going on around him. Loved that dynamic.
This is a fantastic read for any fan of books with great story lines. This is worth taking a chance on but hold on to your seat because you are in for a thrilling ride.
