FINALL! Vampires who are literally bad! And they are evil! Oh! And they are just down right wicked awesome!

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!

Brian Rowe knows how to captivate his readers. He develops characters and plot lines that are hard to resist. This read was like a roller coaster ride for me. The anticipation while getting buckled in and comfortable not knowing what to expect then you take off and there are twists and turns some slow moments then off and roaring. Getting a little scared but then calming down. When the ride ends you know there is nothing like what you just experienced. There's the excitement of "oh man that was cool" or "I almost lost my cookies back there". Definitely nothing like it.

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.

We follow Brin Skar, a teenage girl with a thing for "films", but there's one genre that she doesn't like. The Horror Genre, and much to her dismay, her film class is devoted to this genre. Well at least her best friend Ash is happy right? Then to make things worse for her, her teacher grouped them into six and they will be making their very own horror movie. Now how fun is that? Well apparently, it is a nightmare for our dear protagonist.

Anaya Frost volunteered--or rather desperately wanted--to be the director, and although Brin also wanted to do that part, she gave up and let Anaya do what she wants. For the movie, they travelled all the way to Bodie which seemed like the perfect place to shoot their scenes. It's practically a ghost town, and not a single soul lives there, or that's what they thought.

The Vampire Underground is a really fun read for me. Although it has the "vampire" concept that most novels have, this is a bit different because it is more of a horror genre than that of the paranormal. The story is more about survival, but there were a few hints of romance. It was a fast read and very, VERY thrilling that I find myself biting my nails in anticipation as I uncover the events. The characters are very interesting as well! Brin, is a strong heroine, and although there were moments that she seemed too dependent on Paul, she still struggles to push back her fears just so she can save her friends from the blood-suckers.
Ash is another awesome character! He's quirky and funny, and all his remarks about his obsession with films are so hilarious! I have to admit that I didn't like Anaya at first. She's bossy and so full of herself, but as I continue reading, I finally understood why she's like that.
