Rachel Caine - Élőhalottak ​bálja
Claire ​Danversnek nem egyszerű az élete. Zseni létére olyan suliba kell járnia, ahol sajnos nem számít ki milyen okos: ha nem tartozol a menő csajok klikkjéhez, pokollá teszik az életedet. Ráadásul a várost, ahol tanul, vámpírklánok uralják. Rachel Caine nagysikerű sorozatának második kötetében Claire-re újabb megpróbáltatások várnak. Bár a kollégiumból sikerül elköltöznie, és talál egy egész jó kis albérletet, a problémák nem oldódnak meg. Eleinte egész jól alakulnak a dolgok: Claire összejön az egyik lakótársával, a jóképű Shane-nel. De aztán egy szempillantás alatt véget ér az idilli állapot, miután beállít Shane apja, a bosszúszomjas vámpírvadász a motoros bandájával. Ezek a fickók nem válogatnak az eszközökben és módszerekben, ha vérszívókat gyilkolhatnak… Shane-t megvádolják, hogy eltett láb alól egy vámpírt, aztán rács mögé kerül, és halálra ítélik. A gyilkossági ügy a vámpírok és az emberek közötti tűzszünet végét jelentheti. Az idő pedig vészesen fogy ugyanis a vámpírok egyik nagyhatalmú vezére, Oliver szeretné minél előbb letudni a kivégzést. Claire és barátai két tűz közé kerülnek, és törhetik a fejüket, hogy hogyan másszanak ki a csávából. Közben a campuson az év legnagyobb bulija készül, ahová Claire és Eve is meghívást kap. Az ötlet jónak tűnik, de mire kiderül, hogy miért hívták meg őket, elszabadul a pokol: emberek és vámpírok, élők és holtak csapnak össze. Mindenki vérre szomjazik, de persze senki sem az, akinek látszik… ”A Twilight-rajongóknak ezt mindenképpen el kell olvasniuk.” Word Nerd
