Tana thought that the worst thing at the party would be seeing her ex. She was wrong. The worst thing is waking up to find everybody dead and vampires still in the house. Doing the best she knows how, Tana’s goal is to save everyone she can. But can she save herself? At surface level, Holly Black has just written another story about vampires. I was happy to find, though, that the main plot was not about romance, but about humanity and mercy.
While I wasn’t very interested in picking up this book at first, it wasn’t long before I was sucked into the future Tana lives in. the characters Black creates will make you laugh, make you cry, and make you question your sanity, but you’ll love every word of it.
