The Dead Girls' Dance by Rachel Caine

Warning!!!! Summery may contain spoilers!!! Do NOT read below if you plan to read Caine's Glass Houses!

Caine goes a little darker in this second installment of the Morganville Vampire Series. At the end of the last book (Glass Houses), Shane, Clare's boyfriend and roommate, makes a phone call to his father as a last-ditch effort to save the Glass house clan. At the beginning of Dead Girl's Dance, Shane's father shows up with a motorcycle gang in tow, who share one thing in undeniable taste for vampire blood. Eventually, things simmer down once the motorcycle gang goes into underground hiding. Unfortunately, nothing in Morganville stays buried for long...

This is not a book to missed for fans of Rachel Caine or fans of the Morganville Vampire Series. It was a little slow at first, but as the plot thickens, readers will have great difficulty setting the book down. I highly recommend the series if you liked Harris' Southern Vampire Mysteries or Caine's Weather Warden Series.

Cover art commentary:
A much needed improvement from Glass Houses. However, I still think the cover is a bit hokey. Again, I don't know who is supposed to be on the cover. My best guess is Clare, which is highly doubtful, because I believe she is supposed to have dark brown hair?!

Overall rating:
