Overview

In the satiric and funny sequel to the witty Vampire High, Cody's hopes for a great sophomore year at Vlad Dracul are dashed when his train wreck of a cousin, Turk Stone, moves in and messes with his life.
 
Turk's a brilliant teen artist and goth with a sky-high ego . Her attitude infuriates the vampire (jenti) students, especially the dark, brooding Gregor. But something changes in Turk when she stumbles on the abandoned nineteenth-century mill in the forgotten district of Crossfield and immediately claims it as her new arts center project.
 
Though Cody resents his cousin at first, he has his own reasons for helping make Turk's dream come true. But Crossfield has many secrets, and a mysterious vampire army called the Mercians will do anything to make sure they stay hidden. And when he takes on the Mercians, everything Cody has learned about courage and determination his freshman year at Vampire High will be tested.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Paula Rohrlick
In this sequel to Vampire High, Cody is looking forward to returning to Vlad Dracul Magnet School, where most of the students are elegant, powerful vampires. Although Cody isn't a vampire himself, merely human, his previous adventures at Vlad Dracul (summarized in this volume, so readers don't need to be familiar with the previous one) have made him a hero to them; he's even dating a vampire princess. Then Cody's teenaged cousin Rachel—now calling herself Turk—has yet another fight with her mother, moves into his house and heads off to school with him, and life suddenly becomes a lot more difficult. Turk is a rude and egotistical artist, and when she and Cody come across an abandoned mill in a deserted part of their New England town she wants it for a studio, while Cody dreams of turning it into an arts center that might bring together the different constituencies in town. However, the mill has a mysterious and tragic history, and their renovation plans spark a dangerous war between two factions of vampires. Humor, mostly in the form of witty dialogue, combines well with adventure in this quick-moving tale of dogged determination and the power of art to overcome differences. This is no dripping-fangs type of vampire story, but it will appeal to vampire fans as well. Reviewer: Paula Rohrlick
School Library Journal
Gr 7 Up—To some, being human and attending a high school for vampires might be a little unnerving. But for Cody Elliot, it's a piece of cake. At Vlad Dracul he is cool, extremely popular, and dating an actual vampire princess. Unfortunately, when his difficult and opinionated cousin moves in, things get a little out of hand. Turk's tough Goth exterior and smart-aleck attitude antagonize the vampires and draw attention away from her own issues and insecurities. Art is her outlet, so when Turk discovers an abandoned warehouse in the uninhabited section of town, she enlists Cody's help to turn it into her new studio and make her mark on the world. What Cody and Turk don't realize is that Crossfield has a violent past, one that many, including the mysterious Mercian, want to keep hidden. Cody must make difficult choices at the risk of losing all that he holds dear while forging alliances and discovering secrets that will change New Sodom forever. Rees's fast-paced and action-packed story line tackles important teen issues like identity, belonging, friendship, and acceptance in a way that is not overbearing or preachy. With lots of humor and strong, engaging characters, this novel has an appeal factor that is sure to make its mark (or bite) on readers of this genre.—Donna Rosenblum, Floral Park Memorial High School, NY

Read an Excerpt

There's a thing the jenti do that's called the Rustle. It's nothing you can really hear. But if you hang around them long enough, you can tell when it's happening. It's a way they have of telling each other something is changing. Asking, "Have you noticed?" and "What do you think about it?" without ever moving their lips. Jenti may act as though they couldn't care less what's going on, but they always know when something is.
 
And Turk was something to Rustle about. As soon as she pulled up in her little black Volksbug and parked in a slot that was big enough for a stretch limo, and the four of us got out, it started.
 
New kid, coming in with Ileana (the Princess) Antonescu, and Cody (the Original Gadje) Elliott, and Justin (World's First Swimming Jenti) Warrener, and who does she think she is, one of us? And if she doesn't, what does she think she is?
 
It was a fair question. Turk had decked herself out in black leather, even though the day was hot, and from her ears and around her neck dangled shards of mirror that flashed and glittered every time she moved. She wore the jewel Ileana had given her hanging on her forehead, and on her neck she'd drawn two black dots and written the words Open Here.

    It's sophomore year for Cody Elliot at New Sodom's prestigious Vlad Dracul High School, and things seem to be going well. He managed to lead the school's water polo team to victory, acquire a girlfriend in the form of a jenti (vampire) princess, and maintain a C average. Not bad for a lowly gadje! Unfortunately, Cody's good fortune is short-lived. His crazy cousin, who goes by many names but now refers to herself as Turk, shows up on his family's doorstep. Turk and her mother are at odds, and felt it best for Turk to have a change of scenery. Turk's main goal appears to be rattling everyone's cage. She also wants to open an arts center in Crossfield, a place that holds bad memories for the jenti. Things are going to get dicey for Cody and Turk, and ticking off the jenti is never a good idea. Rees has successfully kept his story going in this second VAMPIRE HIGH offering. His vampire folklore is different from his fellow YA writers, and I think that's what makes these novels so enjoyable. These are not your typical vampires. I also appreciate the fact that Rees keeps a consistent narrator throughout the story. I think there is much more in story for Cody Elliot and his jenti friends. I will be anxious to see what happens next!
