Overview

What good is a designer dress if someone puts a stake through it?

It's the most important event of the season in New York's upper-crust vampire society. The Rauhnacht Grand Ball has everything you need for a night of scandal and intrigue: gala dresses, stolen boyfriends, forbidden love . . .

Then a team of vampire hunters shows up and ruins everything! The surprise attack by Van Helsings is the worst gate-crashing ever.

In the aftermath, half sisters Lilith and Cally scramble to regain their footing at the exclusive Bathory Academy—and in the world of high fashion, where both have star potential. When new suitors turn the romance up a notch, it's almost enough to make the half sisters forget their intense rivalry. Almost. But shared blood between vampires is not easy, and before long Lilith and Cally find themselves face-to-face again.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Anita Barnes Lowen
The Rauhnacht Ball is the highlight of the vampire social season. Callie is lucky to be included; after all she is half human and the unrecognized out-of-wedlock daughter of Victor Todd. And she has been intimate with Peter van Helsing, "descendant of the legendary scourge of the vampire race." Alas, the evening goes horribly wrong when the Van Helsings attack the party. In the chaos, Callie inadvertently kills Peter's father (she is blessed or cursed with the Shadow Hand). But undead life goes on and Callie is thrilled that Sister Midnight, owner of a chain of trendy boutiques, adores her clothing designs and will arrange for a fashion show at her exclusive boutique. And (given her relationship with Peter is most likely at an end) Callie finds a new love interest in Lucky Maledetto. Unfortunately their fathers are sworn enemies. Of course, Callie's demi-sister, Lilith ("a manipulative, messed-up, chronically insecure bitch") is still very much in the picture and hoping her alchemy work with Exo will lead to the development of a special anti-vanishing cream that will make her fame and fortune. Read the first two books before beginning this third book in the "Vamps" series; with all the loose ends left hanging at the end of this title, there is sure to be a fourth. Underage drinking, implied sexual activity, some obscenities. Reviewer: Anita Barnes Lowen

    AFTER DARK is the third installment in the VAMPS series. It picks up where NIGHT LIFE leaves off; everyone of Old Blood consequence is attending the Rauhnacht Grand Ball at the Orlock estate. But the night turns sour when the Van Helsings show up and start attacking.

    Callie is stunned when she sees her old flame, Peter, among the hunters. And Lilith is awestruck when she finds out that Xander Orlock, aka EXO, is partly responsible for her rescue.

    But after the Grand Ball, things are no longer the same. Lilith's mother is now dead, and along with her, all the undead and anything associated with her blood right. And Callie's mother and protectors are also gone. In light of these changes, Callie has now been invited to move into the Todd household. She's still not ousted as Victor Todd's daughter, and Lilith is seething at having Callie move into her mother's rooms.

    There are some bright spots, though. Callie's fashion designs were discovered by none other than Sister Midnight at the Ball. After showing Sister her sketches, Callie is invited to have her own runway show at Sister's boutique. But unfortunately, Lilith is to be the star model. Callie can work with that, if she has to.

    AFTER DARK is a fun look at the lighter side of vampire family struggles. Callie and Lilith want nothing to do with each other, yet circumstance keep bringing the two of them together. The story moves quickly and engrosses the reader from the first page. The story flows better having read the previous two installments, but readers can quickly pick up the gist of the story if this is their first foray into the VAMPS series.

    I don't know when the next installment of VAMPS will be out, but AFTER DARK leaves so many loose ends, you just know there has to be one! I for one will be keeping my eyes open for it!
