Overview

Nancy Drew The New Case Files #1: Nancy Drew Vampire Slayer

Vampire-mania has gripped River Heights, with teenage girls going wild over the new "DieLite" novels and movies. But what happens when a supposedly "real" handsome young vampire arrives on the scene? Will Nancy expose him as a fraud -- or fall under his dark spell? As if that wasn't enough-- there's something dark and sinister happening while everyone's distracted by the vampire madness. Could this possibly be linked to what's happening in Bayport, home of the Hardy Boys? Spoiler warning: there are no vampires, blood or gore in this graphic novel.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 5 Up—Nancy Drew and her best friends, Bess and George, are caught up in the Dielite mania sweeping River Heights. Reluctantly, Nancy joins them at the theater to watch the movie (again) only to get drawn into yet another mystery. Much to Ned's dismay, Gregor, the tall, dark and handsome stranger in town, seems to be the center of it. The muted pastels of the manga-style people are a little too flat, and the unimaginative panel layout is too boring for an action-packed mystery. The mood is slightly improved with dark and murky backgrounds, more appropriate for a vampire tale. The text tends to be slightly goofy and bland at times; overall, this is a mediocre tale. Still, Nancy Drew fans as well as vampire fanatics might be drawn to it, and those who stick around for the cliff-hanger ending will most likely be impatient to get their hands on part two.—Carol Hirsche, Provo City Library, UT
