The Dead Girls’ Dance is the second book in Rachel Caine’s Morganville Vampires series, and it picks up immediately where Glass Houses left off. For that reason, this post is going to be a short one since I don’t want to give too much away for those of you who haven’t read the first book. Let’s just say that things go from bad to worse for Claire and her roommates.
Claire and her friends sort of unwittingly started a war in Morganville. Vampire against vampire, human against vampire, human against human. It’s bad. (Understatement is one of my specialties). Of course, Claire and her not-so-merry band are in the middle of it all. They don’t know what to do, and when one of them gets into some serious heat with the vamps for his supposed activities, Claire knows that drastic actions must be taken to save her friend. What will she do? Can she and her friends get out of this mess with their lives? Read The Dead Girls’ Dance to find out.
I really enjoyed this second installment of the series, but I did have one teeny issue–the title. The Dead Girls’ Dance was only part of the book at the very end, and I didn’t think it played a really vital role in the story. Yes, certain events at the dance were important to the story, but I don’t think that made the dance itself title-worthy. I know I’m nit-picking, but that kind of jumped out at me. At the same time, though, I can’t think of another title. Oh well.
Now, I’m on to my next book. I’m taking a little vacation from Morganville. (Honestly, I’m waiting on the rest of the series to be delivered from my good friends at Barnes & Noble.) I’ll return soon.
