The Dead Girls' Dance (Morganville Vampires Series #2)

The Dead Girls' Dance (Morganville Vampires, Book 2) - Rachel Caine At the end of book 1 [b:Glass Houses|27266|Glass Houses (The Morganville Vampires, #1)|Rachel Caine|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1349110908s/27266.jpg|27912], Shane's psychopathic, vampire hunting father and his band of thugs showed up. The Dead Girls' Dance has him running amok in Morganville. The vampires are hunting him and Claire, Shane, Eve and Michael are the meat in the sandwich. This book has some good things going on, but there are a few things that really annoyed me. The epilogue in the form of diary entries from Eve is tedious. The protagonists spend most of their time whining, and it gets to be a bit much. This still would have been a 3.5 star book if it wasn't for this. Claire was feeling kind of light headed, in fact she was dizzy, maybe it was the heat. She took another gulp from the bottle, but that just seemed to make her feel nauseous. As Ian opened the fourth door she said, "I don't feel so good."Ian smiled and said, "Well that was fast", and shoved her into the room. "I thought I was gonna have to work a little harder, but you're pretty easy."There were three other guys in the room...There was something bad out there something worse than four horny, stupid, cruel boys. She felt something brush against her, a hand. One of the boys she didn't know which one, was it Ian? She took it and squeezed.[to Ian, the guy who drugged her and was going to rape her] "I'm sorry about your nose." she said.[later] Those boys weren't monsters.OK...so in brief, Ian invites her to the party with the intention of slipping her a drug and then gang-raping her with three of his mates. While defending herself from the would be rapists, she cracks Ian in the nose. Later she apologizes to him for defending herself. They all end up hiding in the closet, and one of the would be rapist takes her hand and she squeezes it. Later she thinks, those guys weren't so bad.WTF!!! On what planet is gang rape not so bad??? That scene is so fucked up and I just can't forgive it. Seriously not cool Ms Caine.
