The Dead Girls Dance - Rachel Caine

" Claire Denvers has her share of challenges - like being a genius in a school that favors beauty over brains, dealing with the homicidal girls in her dorm, and above all, finding out that her college town is overrun with vampires. On the up side, she has a great roommate (who tends to disappear rat sunup) and a new boyfriend named Shane... whose vampire-hunting dad has called in back-up: cycle punks who like the idea of killing just about anything." -Book Cover

Glass house, Morganville Vampires book 1, ended up on 1 major cliff-hanger with the death of Micheal, Claire's roommate. So I'll make a tease of myself and I will not talk about him in my reviews to not spoil the surprise =P

Claire, Eve and Shane are in deep trouble with Shane's dad being in town. The man plain crazy and he is on a mission - kill every single vampire in the town. Easy enough right?
The vampires knows what the guy is up to and they are determined to not let it happen and what vampire wants, vampire gets.The story takes one major turn when Brandon, one of the worst ass-hole in the vamp community, gets killed and Shane is accused of murder.

It was a great read, I liked it even more then the first book in the series. I really like the characters, and they all have their own issues to cope with. Claire being a 16 years old in a grown-up world with grown-up problems, Eve with her murderer brother being out of jail and Shane with his shady past and his insane father.

The plot followed some very interesting turns and twist I didn't expect, and Sam - a not so bad vampire- was a great addition to party! I'm really dying to give you updates on Michael but I won' t lol

If you haven't started this series yet, you really have to. It is a very refreshing series in which vampires aren't handsome guys to please your fantasies - They are the bad guy, just like it used to be!
