Armed with newfound confidence and a copy of Growing Up Undead: A Teen Vampire’s Guide to Dating, Health, and Emotions, Jessica makes a dramatic transition from average American teenager to glam European vampire princess. Jessica’s Guide to Dating on the Dark Side is a charming book full of likable and not so likable characters (think Faith the mean cheerleader and Frank the bully).
But when a devious cheerleader sets her sights on Lucius, Jess finds herself fighting to win back her wayward prince, stop a global vampire war—and save Lucius’s soul from eternal destruction. ) When I first heard the title of this book I smiled, it’s a good title, yes? With tips from this Jessica person as to how to snag a vampire, and once the “snagging” was over how to keep him and deal with his, uh, vampness… Jessica is just starting out her senior year when a mysterious stranger shows up at her bus stop and then later at school. Announcement: Mom, I love ya, but don’t be inviting no creepy stalkers to my house for dinner. In fact, logical thinking Jessica thinks they are all crazy.
Title: Jessica’s Guide to Dating on the Dark Side Author: Beth Fantaskey Genre: YA paranormal/fantasy Format: Ebook and Print Publisher: Graphia (reprint edition 2010) Synopsis (courtesy of Amazon) The undead can really screw up your senior year . But then a bizarre (and incredibly hot) new exchange student named Lucius Vladescu shows up, claiming that Jessica is a Romanian vampire princess by birth—and he’s her long-lost fiancé. I was interested to get into this story to see what it was all about and if it would be as amusing as the title.
Marrying a vampire definitely doesn’t fit into Jessica Packwood’s senior year “get-a-life” plan.
The last thing she wanted was to find out that her birth parents were vampires, and that her vampire betrothed has come to claim her.
This book is very well written, easy to follow and everything was described in a way that allowed me to picture it all in my head. I will say that this book was a little slow for me.
I often found myself getting frustrated with Jessica and Lucius because they never seemed to be able to “get together”.
