About the Author: Nancy A. Collins (born 10 September 1959) is a United States horror fiction writer best known for her series of vampire novels featuring her character Sonja Blue. Collins has also written for comic books, including the Swamp Thing series, Jason Vs. Leatherface, Predator: Hell Come A Walkin and her own one-shot Dhampire: Stillborn.My Thoughts: Based on the summary this series sounds like a mix between vampires and Gossip Girl. The concept doesn't seem very original, the series is set among New York's elite just as many other resembling series, Blue Bloods, Gossip Girl and The Elite for example. And like those series there is a fight between the rich, popular mean girl and the kinder, poorer and shyer new girl.
To be honest, this series doesn't sound very interesting to me. . . I'm not a big fan of designer-dropping books like Gossip Girl and Privileged. But what do I know? This series might surprise me!
