Overview

Third in Mancusi's hip, sassy vampire series, featuring the heroine of Stake That!

She's a vampire. She's also a vampire slayer. (It's a long story.) And now Rayne McDonald, Goth girl, has to carry out her most deviant mission yet: trying out for the cheerleading squad.

Rayne already has enough on her plate: her twin keeps whining about whether or not to go all the way; her mom's boyfriend is moving in; and her man, Jareth, who's now allowed out in the sun, has turned from a dark, brooding hottie vamp into a surfer dude.

But this vampire slayer is still on the clock, and she has a new assignment. A member of the football team has disappeared-and her bosses at Slayer Inc. think the cheerleaders had something to do with it. Now they want her to infiltrate the squad and get the dirt. But first, she'll need an extreme prep makeover. If only they'd let her wear fishnets under that revolting uniform.

This is the third installment of the series. I finished this book in 1 day. The story is well written and the charcters are relateable. In this book Rayne is a Slayer and a Vamp and now is part of Slayer Inc. She sets out to find a cure for her Cheerleader friends (Yes, I did say Cheerleader....you see Rayne becomes a Cheerleader...Goth Girl). Anyways her Cheerleader friends have a dark secret (which Rayne finds out), and she needs to help them before something else happens. With the help of her BF Jareth set out to New England and that is when the adventure begins. You definately need to read this book you won't be sorry. If you like Buffy the Vampire Slayer; then this series is for you.

Review: I can't say it enough.. I love this series! Another great addition to the series, Girls that Growl is funny, action packed, and of course a whole lot fun with some pretty hot vamps and some kick butt heroines. I just can't get enough.  Long Story Short: Rayne is now a vampire slaying no powers vamp and she is given a mission, she must become a cheerleader. haha... now that is funny. Something strange is going on with the cheerleaders and boys are disappearing. Rayne is given the task to join the cheerleaders and find out exactly what that is. The mission leads Rayne and Jareth head off to England where they meet with another coven and a wolf pack.  My Thoughts: Another awesome read. The books just keep getting better. Not only are their vamps and vamp slayers, now we have werewolves. Sounds good to me. The book was written in the same comedic style as the first two and I just think that Mari Mancusi is brilliant. I love the ironies in the story, the funny one -liners, and all the sarcastic characters. These book make me laugh out loud throughout the entire book.  Of course the same awesome characters appear. This book is told from Rayne's point of view and we get into her head a bit more with all her insecurities and fears. She started to have some relationship issues and he also starts to enjoy being a cheerleader and makes a friend.  She is a very strange one indeed.  We get to know Jareth a bit better in this book and he is a bit different too. Being about to go out in the sun after some time being a vamp has gone to his head and he is now more of a surfer dude than a brooding vamp. Quite funny actually. Either way he is hot.  There was a serious issue addressed in this book, cutting. I really appreciate the way the author added this in and did it in such a caring way. Sometimes these issues bring the book down and sometimes they add to the story. This time it added and it didn't take over. It was something spoken of and dealt with in a loving manner between friends and it brought out some really good things in Rayne.  The book is a very fast read, exciting, and just way to funny.  In the End: I think everyone should read this series and have fun with them. They are so spectacular.

The next cave is slightly small hit big enough for prey. There isnt much to it. Grab and go! Or leave and go.

Once again I loved this book. I kind of felt bad for Rayne in this book because Jareth seemed more worried about himslef than her. I understand that he was having fun being able to out in the sun again but he needed to help Rayne with the whole being a vampire thing. Anyway I think Rayne grew up a lot in this book. I think she learned a lot about herself. I like how Mari can bring different supernatural creatures into the same story and it fit in perfectly. I hope we get to see a lot more of the werewolves in the rest of the books.

Girls That Growl is the 3rd book in the Blood Coven Vampire novels by Mari Mancusi. This one is again in Rayne's point of view. She's an official vampire slayer for Slayer Inc. but she's technically supposed to be in retirement from it now that she's a vampire herself. But Mr. Teifert the U.S. Senior Vice President of Slayer Inc. has other plans for her until the new replacement is properly trained. It has been reported that the cheerleaders at Oakridge High School have been heard growling and the captain of the football team is now also missing. It's up to Rayne to save the day again and boy is that a major challenge! But of course she has her blood mate Jareth and even though he's kind of become a beach bum lately he still comes through in the end and helps her fix this new growing problem. This is a must read!!!

girls that growl was really cool and fun to read :) i never thought that werewolves would be involved in the sires. i really enjoyed reading it because Rayne and Jareth finally went on a trip to england together :) it was sad when Jareth broke up with Rayne because she was being mean to him. when Rayne went to the woods with Orphues, i said to myself don't do it Rayne you love Jareth. When she is was in trouble all of a sudden a bat came in i said could it be Jareth?? then there he was trying to save Rayne :) i got really happy when he saved her from the werewolf because i knew he wouldn't leave her alone. :)
