Goodreads Synopsis:

Rayne McDonald thought getting into the Blood Coven was the hard part. But now there's a new breed of trouble in town...and the former slayer and her vampire boyfriend may be the only ones who can stop it. 

Now that she's an official vampire and full-fledged member of The Blood Coven, Rayne assumes her vampire slaying days are over. Sure, she doesn't have any vampire powers, thanks to a mutated blood virus, but she and Jareth can go out in the sun, which is a pretty good trade-off. 

But just when Rayne's starting to enjoy her afterlife, she's contacted by Slayer Inc once again. It seems that a member of her high school's football team has disappeared—and the powers-that-be think the cheerleaders had something to do with it. Now Rayne has to infiltrate the squad before the cheerleaders have a chance to sink their teeth into someone else...

My Review:
            I continued with this series because I really liked Rayne's character and attitude. She is funny, sarcastic and a bad ass chick. So what happened to her in this book!? Rayne was constantly talking about her self and how much she hates life. "I hate every one, I hate the world, everyone hates me...," this is all Rayne said and it got very annoying. Another thing that annoyed me was her relationship with Jareth! I mean was it even a relationship? There weren't any romantic scenes, kisses, or any melt my heart moments. I was very disappointed and I was really looking forward to reading more about Rayne and Jareth.

So the story took a whole new turn when we find out that Rayne's destiny wasn't really to become a vampire, but to slay them. Now Rayne is forced to work for a company who wants her skills and knowledge of vampires and use it against them. I really give the author props for originality because this story definitely has potential. Overall, the plot was a little better than the previous books and it was able to keep me entertained. Plus it was a very quick read.
