    Entertaining Sequel But Not As Good As "Wicked Game"

    This book is less engaging than it's predecessor "Wicked Game". The tension is missing, and farcical parody takes the limelight. Ciara, (the protagonist), loses her self-questioning edge as a tongue-in-cheek undercover investigator with con-man skills who tracks down those responsible for pirating WVMP's broadband frequency. There's an underlying streak of ditzy thoughtlessness in everything Ciara does or feels that just seems artificial. Even when Ciara's crying in response to Shane (her vampire boyfriend), it's described in terms which are somewhat humorous when read. After Travis pulls her from a pyre and dies saving Regina, Ciara experiences only fleeting disappointment, and she capitalizes on Travis' death a few days later by maneuvering her grieving friend Lori toward David. With the exception of her new vampire dog Dexter, Ciara doesn't seem to adequately care about the relationships in her life. She puts off Shane's need for commitment, alternately denies or avoids her growing attraction to David and tries to forget her father. For the most part, she refuses to deal with her emotions and unabashedly embraces foolhardy denial. I genuinely appreciate good humor, however, the protagonist's thoughtless insincerity is not lighthearted, rather it's a bit heartless at times. Regardless of the above shortcomings, the book is an entertaining read. The references to music are fun, and the other characters are interesting. Shane and Dexter the dog are particularly well developed and realistic. Even Regina's character gains depth. Although the plot and pace initially meanders, both gain momentum near the mid-point and reach an action-packed climax.
