From Goodreads: Lucy's cousin Christabel has come to live in Violet Hill, and adjusting to the difference between life in a small mountain town and her home in the city is difficult enough. The strict curfew that Lucy's parents enforce is the worst part. Something really dangerous couldn't possibly happen in this tiny town. But Christabel has noticed some mysterious happenings, and it seems like Lucy, her boyfriend Nicholas and his brother Connor are all in on a secret that Christabel doesn't understand - one that seems deadly serious. Although she won't admit it, Christabel would love to be in on any secret with Connor Drake. But after Christabel is kidnapped by the ruthless Hel-Blar vampires, Lucy and Connor finally fill her in on all the undead drama. Together, they must find a way to stamp out the Hel-Blar for good.
I really enjoy this series and practically devour each new installment. I know I'm going to have a fun time reading them.
This time we get the story from 3 characters: Connor, Christabel and Lucy. I'm so pleased to have Lucy back as a narrator - I absolutely love her! And her cousin Christabel is a great - plus you can tell she is from the same family! She has attitude but in a very different way - I loved her obsession with reading and the way she repeats quotes to herself. Connor is another Drake brother to fall in love with - and although I still think Nicholas is my favourite - I can't help falling for each brother!
The story takes a bit more of a serious turn in this installment - especially where Solange is concerned. Also, it managed to completely take me by surprise - one thing happened that I did not see coming! And honestly, that ending? How on earth will I wait until the next book? Arrgggggg!
A great series and each book raises the stakes (sorry, couldn't resist!). I love reading them and can't wait to get my hands on the next one.
