About the Author

Reviews

"A fresh, modern, and humorous twist on the vampire novel. . . . Lively characters and a sweet romance are icing on the cake."--Publishers Weekly
"How refreshing to find a stand-alone vampire book with a real twist. . . . The story transitions easily between the vampire and human world, creating characters, settings, and situations that are quite believable and often funny while still maintaining a respectable level of darkness. Fans of vampire fiction will be pleased to find this one on the shelf."--SLJ
"There is a bit of romance and the requisite love triangle of supernatural beasts, but Pearl is a strong female character who does not lose herself to her suitors. This book will likely appeal to young horror fans who enjoy a snarkier, smarter, distinctly less sparkly brand of vampires."--VOYA
"Pearl is, if not exactly likable, refreshingly self-aware and possessed of a sort of mad charm, and readers both vamp-crazy and not will enjoy her dry, unapologetic take on the genre that is at once pointed send-up and twisted celebration."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"Fierce, smart, and sarcastic, Pearl is a lively antihero who is forced to choose sides in the ultimate showdown, revealing her true loyalties. A sweet yet unusual romance completes the book's appeal."--The Horn Book
"Combining a sense of humor with dark appeal of supernatural romance, this book is funny, scary and thought provoking all at once. . . . Even jaded fans of the supernatural will find fun in this one."
