Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Kristin Fletcher-Spear
Picking up where Fangtastic (Flux/Llewellyn, 2012/Voya February 2012) left off, Gina and her friends are hiding from the feds in Salem, Massasschusetts. Salem, with its witchcraft history, is teaming with restless spirits, some trying to possess Bobby, another trying to strangle girls. Trying to keep a low profile is hard when Gina becomes one of the victims and is caught by the Ghouligans crew, a ghost-hunting TV show. While the action and mystery can be read without having read the previous volumes in the Vamped series, it will be harder to grasp the characters and their motivations. Diver gives the readers enough background material to pick up on the larger goal of the characters—exposing the feds' secret vampire compounds to the world. Gina is a lighthearted character who has the strength to fight against the baddies but also the warmth and personality to have a romance and friendships that add dimension to the story. Diver brings in new side characters to flesh out the Salem location, but it means that there are a lot of people to remember. Libraries with the previous volumes of the series should consider adding this fourth book to their collections. Reviewer: Kristin Fletcher-Spear
Kirkus Reviews
The fourth in the Vamped series carries the gang to the infamous center of all things witchy: Salem, Mass. Gina Covello, teen vamp and ex-Fed, is on the run with her trusty BFF Marcy and her oh-so gorgeous BF Bobby. They're on the down-low for now and hoping to stay under the radar long enough to earn some money and decide what to do next. It's not long before they run into an old friend Ulric, who is only too happy to be a strong shoulder for Gina…or anything else she'd like him to be. Taking jobs as guides on the nightly ghost tours of Salem, Gina and her crew become all too close to a vengeful spirit who is out to murder anyone it can get its hands on. Gina is caught among the ghost, the authorities, the normals, an investigative TV crew and a horrendous Pilgrim outfit (so not to die for!). Things only get worse when Bobby's body is taken over by the ghost and turns on Gina herself. As always, it's up to Gina to solve the problem without revealing herself or getting any of her friends staked in the process. Another amusing romp in the series, this installment also sees its hardy heroine beginning to mature, adding further dimension to her character. Reminiscent of Charlaine Harris' Sookie Stackhouse and Janet Evanovich's Stephan Plum, Gina never fails to deliver the goods. (Paranormal comedy. 12 & up)

    Fangtabulous is the fourth book in the VAMPED series, one of my favorite YA paranormal series. If you love anything paranormal, quirky, and suspenseful, you'll love the Vamped saga.

    The protagonist, Gina Covello is a fashionista of the fanged but fashion isn't her only priority. There's trouble in Salem. Bigtime trouble. And it unfortunately includes the love of her life, Hottie Bobby.

    Now it's up to Gina to put a stop to the supernatural strangler before it's too late but that's not the only problem; she must do this without sacrificing her identity.

    I absolutely loved how author Lucienne Diver took Gina and the crew to Salem. The setting. The mystery. The whole ghost/vampire/witches suspense. All awesome stuff!

    Fangtabulous definitely lives up to its name! I've always enjoyed reading about Gina Covello's adventures. This one was one of my fave journeys.

    100% Pure AWESOMENESS!

     Fangtabulous is the 4th installment in the Vamped series.  The main character is Gina, a vampire who is considered the fashionista of the fanged.  The series follows Gina from high school, when she originally becomes a vampire and worked undercover as a teen goth in high school, to working undercover for the Feds.  In Fangtabulous Gina, "the fashion queen of the of the undead," is on the run from the FBI, along with her boyfriend Bobby.  Gina, Bobby, Brent, and her best friend Marcy wind up in Salem Massachusetts, thinking that would be a good place to hind out.  When the local ghosts go on a killing spree, Gina and her friends find themselves undercover again trying to help stop the killings, but one of their biggest challenges is remaining undercover.  




    This was a cute 4th installment in the Vamped series.  It has not only vampires, but ghosts, witches, the FBI, and even Ghost Hunters.  Gina is quite the character, sassy, sarcastic, and has a great fashion sense.  Though it didn't blow me away, I did find this to be a fun, action-packed series with plenty of ghoulish surprises.  If you are looking for a fun, fast, paranormal read, then you may want to check Fangtabulous out.
