Loved it!!! This series is amazing. I can't believe I haven't heard more about it. I know its a bit on the older side, but still. This would make a great series I think or a long movie series. It reads like one and I love it. I love that there are still 13 more books to read in this series and that doesn't even include the companion books.
I will say though that there is a part in the book that I sooo saw coming. I immediately started yelling at my book, I knew it was coming. That part had me in a bit of a rage lol. Didn't hate it but not sure why I finished it other then for some closure. I had some issues with it, but as a whole it was good. I probably won't reread again ever, but there is a chance I might finish the series.
If part of one But if not it's not a huge loss. Maybe not a work of genius, but highly entertaining. I might reread this again, and I will finish the series. If part of one I would recommend to those I know hold interest in this books content. I found little to no issues with it at all. I will definitely be rereading this and probably more than once. I will finish the series and reread it multiple times. This book picks up right where Glass Houses left off, with the aftermath of that cliffhanger.
We've got ourselves a new villain in the form of Frank Collins - Shane's father - but that doesn't mean the old ones are going away. The Glass House gang still find themselves in the middle of trouble, which, honestly, could be a summary of the entire series.
Since this is a reread, I'm aware of the fact that this book is setting up a lot of important events, and introducing characters that play a bigger. Since this is a reread, I'm aware of the fact that this book is setting up a lot of important events, and introducing characters that play a bigger part in the series as a whole.
That isn't all this book does however - it has its own plot, and we learn more about our characters as they continue to develop and reveal things about their past.
Perhaps my favourite thing that happens in this book is the introduction of Sam - Morganville's youngest and sweetest vampire.
There's also more of Richard - Monica's cop brother - who I love for the simple fact that he's constantly fed up with everyone and everything around him. While I do think this is one of the less memorable books in the series, it's definitely worth reading , both for the important things that happen and the developments between characters. It doesn't hold the same place in my heart as Glass Houses , but The Dead Girls' Dance is a good continuation of the series.

Which is sad, because I really dig YA I'm a huge Rick Riordan fan, for example , but the characters were flat, the narration kept turning on itself and the dialogue was, to put it mildly, dreadful.

Feb 10, Shannon rated it liked it Shelves: vampires , owned , young-adult , paranormal , to-sell. I don't know what it is about this series that keeps it from being more than average for me. I like the ideas that Caine comes up with but I don't think she's the greatest writer.
I find myself distracted while reading her books and not as emotionally connected as I should be. That being said, I liked it enough to want to continue on with the series and find out what happens with the characters.
This entry in the series starts right where the first book left off. This left me feeling a little los I don't know what it is about this series that keeps it from being more than average for me. This left me feeling a little lost though since I read Glass Houses more than a year ago.
Fortunately, much of the previous story gets retold in bits and pieces as you read so it's not that hard to remember what had happened. Basically, Shane's Dad is back in town and looking to kill vampires. He gets Claire and the rest of the gang involved and they get in all kinds of trouble. There's some attempted rape, some tortured vampires, and some folded space teleportation. A lot of stuff happens in a short amount of time and it starts to get really unbelievable , especially Claire continually saving the day being a size 2 16 year-old.
The only character I really care about is Claire, and she did a lot of stupid things in this book. Actually, Shane, Eve, and Michael all did some stupid things and that's probably one of the reasons I'm having a hard time connecting with them. I do like Shane and Claire's developing romance though. I honestly think Glass Houses and this one should have been made into one book in the first place. And I think that if I had read them back to back I may have enjoyed this one more.
Overall, not a bad book, but I'm hoping it improves with the next in the series. View all 39 comments. Sorry dudes. I wear the cone of shame- I'm on book five of this series and I am NOT slowing down to write reviews I WILL come back and add quotes for each book, though! View all 6 comments.
The Dead Girls' Dance: The Morganville Vampires Book Two
These books are addictive. One of my very favorite vampire series. Claire Danvers has had her share of challenges - like being a genius in a school that favours beauty over brains, dealing with the homicidal girls in her dorm and, above all, finding out that her college town is overrun with blood-sucking fiends. On the plus side, so far Claire and her friends have managed to survive getting on the wrong side of some Morganville VIPs. Vampire Important Persons.
