Book Review: Stake That! - Mari Mancusi

Two sisters - as different as the sun and the rain. For one, getting into the Blood Coven is to die for, but it seems destiny has something else in mind...
Rayne McDonald had it all figured out: Get turned into a vampire, become the mate of the Blood Coven leader, and live the high life for all eternity. Too bad the head vamp took a bite out of her twin sister by mistake. Now, not only is Rayne still not a vampire, but she learns she's a slayer instead - destined to destroy vamps gone bad.
After being recruited by a secret organization, Rayne is given her first mission: infiltrate a seedy bar downtown and expose its vampire owner, Maverick, for purposely spreading a nasty blood virus. Luckily the Blood Coven sends some help - in the form of sexy vampire Jareth. Will vampire and slayer be able to settle their differences and work together to bring down the evil Maverick? Or will they find their own hearts at risk?
- From the back of the book.

Stake That! is the second book in Mari Mancusi's Blood Coven series. It picks up straight from where Boys That Bite left off, only instead of telling Sunny's story, it tells Rayne's. Also, if you haven't read the first one, you could probably read this one and not get too confused, as everything that happened in the first book is summarized in the first chapter.

Stake That! is told in the form of a blog, IM chats and diary entries. This makes it easy and interesting to read, and adds humour. It is once again, as Boys That Bite was, full of references to TV shows and films, including Buffy, 24, Dracula and The Lost Boys.

So much happens in this book, and as its so fast paced, you are never left hanging. Rayne, as the author of the blog, packs in so much in just a few pages, it just makes you need to keep reading to find out what happens. There is plenty to keep the reader entertained, including a plan to expose their mother's new boyfriend as a vampire, with ideas taken straight from the 80s vampire movies they rented from Blockbuster.

This book is the ideal chick lit vampire book. It has everything it needs to be amazing, and more. I would suggest that however old you are, whether you're a teen, or an adult, that you should read this book, as it is perfect and could be enjoyed by all ages.

I give it 5 Feet!
