Book Description: Being undead doesn’t make life any easier for Alice Bonham.  Her younger brother’s love life is heating up, while hers is… more complicated. Mae is falling apart, her best friend Jane is addicted to vampire bites, and if Alice doesn’t get her bloodlust under control, someone will end up dead.  Alice volunteers for a rescue mission with Ezra. But going up against a pack of rabid vampires might be too much, even for him.

Captivation:  I knew I had to read this book, to see what happens next in the series… the book had a few intertwined plots that kept me interested.

Enjoyment:  I did enjoy the book quite a bit,  I had a few parts where I was bummed or consternated, however, it all fits in with the plot and was’t anything against the book at all.

Imagination: The world and detail still continued to feel realistic enough to relate to, but still steeped in fantasy.

Unique: There were a couple pieces that were similar to topics seen in other popular novels at the time, however Hocking put twists in her overall plot that are entirely her own.

Literacy: I did see more grammar and word errors in this book than the others before it.  Again, I have to point out, though, that I have one of the first versions and it has likely been updated since.

Overall, I liked this book a lot.  This book continues to be on my read again book shelf, along with the series.
