At the Afterlife Academy of Exceptionally Dark Arts, Lily Fielding is a measly trainee who dreams of one day becoming a Savior—those who visit vampire-infested high schools and put down the undead with their deadly crossbows. When Lily and her classmates Alice and Cara begin their latest assignment, it seems like just another run-of-the-mill gig: they’re to simply spot the Vamplayer—part vampire, part player—identify the popular girl he’s set his sights on, and befriend her before the Vamplayer can turn her to do his bidding. Before long, however, the Vamplayer sets his sights on Lily's friends, and she is left to face the threat alone while protecting her friends from the dark forces she has sworn to resist.
Vamplayers by Rusty Fischer
4 out of 5
I enjoyed this fun YA version of vampires. From sugar to garlic, from sunshine to holy water, this book covers the gamete of the vampire myth. Whit some great things added to it.
I liked that you didn't know who the vamplayer was until the big reveal almost at the end. It is always nice not to be right about the villain.
Lily was an interesting character. Older than she looks, in some ways she still stuck in high school (in more ways than one). But it is a great story of her growing up as both a sister and as a person.
Grover was one of my favorites and I hate what happened to him. It was so sad!
In the world of lots of different vampire books, this book sets itself apart. This fun little novel is full of mystery, drama and adventure.
Overall, this is a good book, and I recommend this book for anyone.
