Product Details


A good read for those who hunger for the dark side, with all the trappings of a YA vampire novel.
—School Library Journal

Smith’s writing style is sometimes dramatic, often humorous, and always energetic…A satisfying blend of excitement and intrigue.

Wild and ultimately fascinating, if at times grisly, alternate universe
—Kirkus Reviews

A hearty meal for the thinking vampire reader
—Horn Book

Sure, the vampires, werewolves, and angels provide the lure, but Smiths obvious affection for her characters makes this more than the typical cynical genre exercise.

Readers will particularly enjoy the relief from the scary omnipotence of Brad during the action at Sanguini’s, chock-full of foodie treats and in-jokes for vampire and literature fans… And Quincie’s very teenage interpretation of "Dracula," begun as a make-up assignment for her English teacher at fictional Waterloo High, is a skeptic hoot.
—Austin-American Statesman

As in the previous installments of this smart, sexy trilogy, Cynthia Leitich Smith doses every page with winking pop-culture references and groan-worthy one-liners. In this final volume, her homage to Stoker’s classic novel is most apparent, as she uses the book’s characters for inspiration, its plot for structure and its themes for a rich background that will lead many readers to (re)discover the original Dracula even as they enjoy this darkly humorous send-up.
