*Book provided by publisher for review*

An edgy book for teens that spans the gap between YA and adult fiction. Life after high school is tough enough without having to go 15 rounds with your inner demon. Val Shapiro is just your ordinary, part-demon, teenaged vampire hunter with a Texas drawl. And a pet hellhound named Fang. Soon enough she finds herself deep in the underbelly of the city, discovering the secrets of the Demon Underground and fighting to save those she loves. Whether they love her back or not. 

What I thought:

After reading this for the second time, I did like it better than the first time (which I rated it 2 stars). While I still didn't think it was amazing, I did get into the story more this time around. What tempted me into rereading this one is when I finished it the first time I kept thinking about it. I kept thinking that this should have been a book I should love. Well, I don't love it, but I did like it.

The first time around, the dialogue between Fang and Val really got to me. I always envisioned Fang yelling since his lines were always in caps. This time it didn't bug me as much. Actually, after the first few chapters with Fang, I stopped noticing it.

The story itself is what really got me to reread this. I thought it interesting. The movement, the conflict with the vampires. Looking back, I'm glad I gave this another chance. I may not have loved it completely, but I am definitely interested in reading the next one and that's good.

My Rating:

It's so good to re-read a book you weren't so keen on, it's great to give some books a second chance. I'm not sure I'd like this series (I was gonna request it on netgalley) but I appreciate your honest review!

I've had this series on my shelf for a while now but haven't gotten around to reading it yet. Thanks for the honest review!

I'm undecided as to whether I would really like this. I generally don't like reading anything in caps.

The first time I read it, Jules, the caps drove me nuts. I always think of it as yelling. Not as internal dialog from a hellhound. Second time around I was able to get past it better.

I'd like to hear what you guys think if you do get around to reading it!
