I didn't get into the first book with great expectations. "Vampire High School"? C'mon. As a fan of the genre, I'll admit to having a bit of a grudge over what today's authors have done to vampires in general. That's the attitude I brought with me into this new series. But, these writers bring something new to the table; a new style of laying out the story and a new style of vampire. The vamps have grit, charisma and... yep... teeth!
Book 1 starts off with two very distinct story lines. Mandy: cheerleader turned vamp. Lyman: nerd turned vamp killer. The authors weave their two stories in and out through the book, never coming together until the very end in a gripping climax. Dynamite! I'll admit the beginning was a little rough for me. Get through that and it's a terrific read.
Book 2 picks up right where 1 stops. Now Lyman and Mandy are in this together, both trying to figure out where they belong in the big scheme of vampire vs. Helsing (the hunters). Each has their loyalties tested, but they cling to each other throughout it all.
Book 3 again... picks up where the last book left off. In this one you really get how the characters have grown & come into their own. It culminates in a big showdown between vamps & Helsings.
After I got started with Vampire High, I just tore through the series. It never stops, not a dull moment. Really looking forward to book 4!!

I love these guys. It's like two people telling you a story, it's a great twist on writing, and it works.
Ok... the review.
This starts at the end of book 2, and just goes ON!
Don't be put off by the title; Vampire High School.
This a serious novel about a turf war between vampires.
Seems the vampires have also developed a rage gas that kind of imitates vampire properties.
This is book 3 (obviously) and it goes deeper than before. The guys are in more trouble than ever before, and it shows.
The last pages are like something out of Alocalypse Now.
Great book guys. Can't wait for book 4.
