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 readingboth for the important things that happen and the developments between characters. It doesn’t hold the same place in my heart as Glass Housesbut The Dead Girls’ Dance is a good continuation of the series.

Feb 10, Shannon rated xead liked it Shelves: I don’t know what it is about this series caaine keeps it from being more than average for me. I like dwnce 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 fead ago.
Fortunately, much of the previous story gets retold in bits and pieces as cead 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 girlz of stuff happens in a short amount of time and it starts to get really unbelievableespecially 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 rrachel 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. 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! P Each book gets better and better!!!

As if deadly Vampires and a bunch of psychotic college girls isn’t enough, now they have to survive Shane’s bat-shit crazy father and his vampire-slaying crusade in a city where no one trusts them and no one is their friend.
Apart from the fact that 4 teenagers manage to do more than a hundred centuries old vampires can do, this series continues to be extremely unique. It gets more gothi 3. It gets more gothic and atmospheric with every page you read and the setting starts to vance more and more interesting.
The four friends also begin to mature day by day as they come across danger. Sometimes too much danger.
Some things seem kind of irrelevant to the story. For example the party scene I really didn’t see its purpose. I guess the whole yirls at the end was the end purpose but I just thing the issue could have been approached better.
The weird thing about these books is that although Claire annoys you with her little girl behaviour, you just ded hold it against cwine. Sometimes she behaves like an immature little girl and she knows it, she owns it and it is just natural.
The girl is barely 16 years old and has to go through things that would break much tougher people. Even when I wanted to deqd her, I just couldn’t blame her. My favorite character in this book though is Amelie by far.
She is just so It’s like she’s watching everything from a distance. She takes her time in deciding whether she dahce or not most of the times it’s racheel and whether or not she will interfere. It’s like she has all the time in the world to make her decisions. Of course, when you are the oldest vampire in the world days and human lives probably seem insignificant. She is actually quite badass.
More badass than Oliver and his unorganised rage. I actually found it quite naive of Claire to hope that Amelie would help her even though it’s quite obvious that Amelie has an interest in Claire. He may live, or he may die. That is no longer in my hands, and you may save both your breath and your hopes; I shall not stand up dramatically at the last moment as they light the pyres, and save your lover.
Should it come to that, Claire, you must be prepared for the harsh reality that the world is not a fair or just place, and all your wishing cannot make it so. A lesson I learned long, long ago, when the oceans were young, and sand was still rock.
I am old, child. Older than you can possibly understand. Old enough that I play with lives like counters in a game. I wish this was not so, but damn me if I can change what I am. What the world is.

There are times that I like you and I want to get to know you better but then you go and do something stupid to turn me off, only to rekindle my interest in you a few pages later.
The Dead Girls’ Dance by Rachel Caine
It’s not fair, dear series. See, you have this atmospheric-horror-thriller setting going on, keeping me at the edge of my seat, biting my fingernails, and then you send some deus ex machina to do the rescuing. You give your Dear Series, I don’t know what it is about you, but you confuse me unlike any other series around.
You give your characters depth and flaws and enough layers for me to believe that they could be real, and then you have them react in ways that make no sense whatsoever. I’m trying here, dear series. I want us to be together, I really do, but you’ve got to be straight with me. If you’re gonna be good, be good, if you’re not, let me go. No more messing around with my head.
