Review: Slayed by Amanda Marrone
Author: Amanda Marrone
Publisher: Simon & Schuster
Publication Date: October 5, 2010
Synopsis: The Van Helsing family has been hunting vampires for over one hundred years, but sixteen-year-old Daphne wishes her parents would take up an occupation that doesn’t involve decapitating vamps for cash. All Daphne wants is to settle down in one place, attend an actual school, and finally find a BFF to go to the mall with. Instead, Daphne has resigned herself to a life of fast food, cheap motels and buying garlic in bulk.
But when the Van Helsings are called to a coastal town in Maine, Daphne’s world is turned upside down. Not only do the Van Helsings find themselves hunting a terrifying new kind of vampire (one without fangs but with a taste for kindergarten cuisine), Daphne meets her first potential BF! The hitch? Her new crush is none other than Tyler Harker, AKA, the son of the rival slayer family.
What's a teen vampire slayer to do?
Verdict: This was a fun and fast-paced read that I thoroughly enjoyed! I loved the quirky characters: Daphne, Kiki, and Tyler; and I loved this book!!!
Rating: 4/5 Stars- Really good book!!! :D
