Did Charlie Bennett ever tell you that vampires are evil spawn? Well they are!
She's had just about enough of them and when the unthinkable happens, she decides it might just be time to use her blood as a weapon against them. It's time for a little anarchy.

Loved it. finished it in one sitting. totally reverting. cant wait for the next installment in the series!
"Talk about a cliffhanger!"
This was much better than the 1st book, ASH. The story is great and keeps you entertained and the storyline gets a bit more intense. Looking forward to the finale.
OKAY WTAF! ( I totes stole that from Charlie)
I absolutely loved this book. I never thought that things could so twisted and interesting. The talent that came pouring out of this is amazing!
So Jaymin Eve and Leia Stone have officially become the definition of two heads are better than one. The creative yet realistic plot just made this book amazing. Loved the Ending, I'm a sucker for cliffhangers . (It's kinda my thing)
Since I listened to it rather than read it. I do commend the Narrator for doing and awesome job. Loved how her voice painted the perfect picture using the author's words.
5 unicorn stars.
I love this book it was great story with a powerful stunning surprise ending. Cannot wait for the next book. Please make it soon.
I'm in love with these book they keep me on the edge of my toes and I can't wait for book 3
"can't wait for more!!! I"
I was unsure about this series at first but once I started listening I loved the narrator and the story was exciting. I felt the characters with a depth of emotion that drew me into their world. There's a lot of action and excitement as well as a well told story with twists and turns That You Don't See coming. Definitely worth the credits.
There was just no mystery to this book. I spent the whole time waiting for the characters to figure it out. It is a good thing for Charlie that the antagonist are as dumb as our heroes. Even for a YA, it is very immature and I don't think that I can take another "hells to the no" in order to finish this story.
On a positive side, the world and general plot are unique and have a ton of potential. I just wish the characters were smart.
"Authors kill good story"
These books had potential. The lore was fairly interesting, and the main plot provided a good story. However, most of the main characters are supernatural beings over 50 some years old and the primary one is a woman in her 20s who has had incredible life changing experiences. But somehow, all of them have the emotional sophistication and behaviors of 14 year old girls at summer camp. It is a painful listen.
Also, the gender roles that are portrayed are insulting. I am not quite sure how there can be two women writers, a female narrator, homosexual main characters, a book that is clearly trying to paint itself as enlightened around gender roles, and still come across as horribly sexist.
The writing and the story telling is good. The narrator is good. But the characters demeanor and behavior is very far out of place for their circumstances. If the authors wanted to write pre-teen romance, they should have just done it, and advertised it as such, so I wouldn't be trying to find a good story in the middle of all the hair pulling and pillow fights.
"1st one was better... tried too hard on the 2nd"
This trilogy has a good story line and the narrator is also good. The second book just lacks the umph that was in the first. The most annoying part of the book was the abundance of "hells to the yeah" and overuse of "f*&k." Don't get me wrong, I cuss like a sailor, which should give you some perspective on my criticism, but it felt too forced and contrived. Oh and all of the acronyms... ugh... awful... nobody over the age of 10 say BFF or in Charlie's case BAFF. Also, I found Charlie to be really annoying with her "Hell no, we're doing this my way" attitude. Give me a break! Her "boys" (which was annoying also, they are grown men... not "boys") are supposedly experienced combat fighters, etc... why the hell would they listen to some twerp of a girl that doesn't have a clue and reacts before she thinks?!
This story has so much potential... I really hope that book 3 pulls it together.
I liked the idea of the first book & planned on reading the second installment. highly disappointed by the plot. Charlie was dumb, Tessa was dumb, the fact that no one talked about the levitation or checked to see if she had any other gits was dumb...
