The undead can really screw up your senior year Marrying a vampire definitely doesn't fit into Jessica Packwood's senior year get a life plan But then a bizarre and incredibly hot new exchange student named Lucius Vladescu shows up claiming th This novel wasn’t exactly what I was expecting With a line like “The undead can really screw up your senior year” I was thinking a fluffy funny entertaining just generally a cute novel I was wrong Honestly when I started this novel and read about the first ten pages I was skeptical I started having a little bit of deja vu which really isn’t that big of a surprise considering the volume of vampire novels I read And it is not necessarily a bad thing but the feeling of deja vu was uickly replaced with awe Kudos to Fantaskey for reinventing the genre with this one I think I should start rating my books according to how freuently I put them down During my duration of reading Jessica’s Guide I only put it down when I absolutely had to Which I think only happened once or twice I was that into the story I started it and finished it in the same day This is definitely one of those novels I will be revisiting The main conflict referring to the transition to vampire princess is minimal compared to the real conflicting themes of identity independence and self discovery Jessica’s character is adopted but she never fully accepts that part of her life but you see that change throughout the novel it is a very powerful thing I was very skeptical of the supposed ‘love’ aspect of this novel Jessica’s account is very realistic and it wasn’t hard for the author to portray that when the novel is told mainly through her observations She doesn’t immediately fall into his arms her feelings gradually change Lucius was the one I was worried about He is motivated by duty and not love As a reader I needed to see this radical transformation I needed to see him switch that mode of duty to genuine feelings And Fantaskey masterfully displays Lucian through his first person letters to his uncle You witness the change in his letters and that’s what made the love story for me I believed it Had the author not included that insight to Lucian the story would have been inadeuate The writing was also exceptional The minor characters really made the story that much enthralling It was just perfect Perfectly entertaining perfectly masterful An impressive addition to the genre While the ending of the novel is satisfying I believe it is a stand alone novel but I hope I’m wrong I would love to see a continuation of this story

Jessica's Guide to Dating on the Dark SideAge American teenager to glam European vampire princess But when a devious cheerleader sets her sights on Lucius Jess finds herself fighting to win back her wayward prince stop a global vampire war and save Lucius's soul from eternal destructi Let's get it straight I am notnot NOT into vampire books I think that Twilight is the greatest piece of crappy fan fiction style writing to get published since EragonThe only vampire book I've really enjoyed until now is Sucks to Be Me The All True Confessions of Mina Hamilton Teen Vampire which makes fun of the conventions of the genreBut this one is worth reading Unlike that simp Bella Swan Jessica doesn't think being a vampire would be cool When a Heathcliff like Wutherine Heights figures into the plotvampire arrives at her school and tells her that she is a vampire princess pledged to marry him at birth she doesn't swoon Heck she doesn't even believe that he IS a vampire Besides all she wants is to be a normal American teenager and date the boy next doorThe story of how Lucius slowly wins her over and he does if that's a spoiler develops beautifully Jessica's narrative is interspersed with Lucius's hilarious letters to his Uncle back in the old country and his take on 21st century American culture should make anyone laugh out loudThough it appears frothy at first the drama of the plot deepens and intensifies as it draws towards the climax And Fantaskey doesn't take herself or her characters so seriously as to not allow humor to pop into even the darkest scenes She has maturity as a writer that the Meyers and Paolinis can only dream ofThe characters are well developed Jessica and Lucius's voices ring clear and true Subcharacters are well drawn Jessica's adoptive parents initially come off as a pair of crunchy granola hippie types played for laughs but they are allowed to fully develop something that doesn't always happen with parents in YA booksI am not sure if Fantaskey has left room for a seuel but if she does I'll be reading it and regardless I'll be looking forward to her next book
