The Knaveheart's Curse: A Vampire Island Book

The Knaveheart's Curse: A Vampire Island Book


It didn't hit me until after I wrote my review of the first book, Vampire Island, but the Livingstones are totally a 60s sitcom family like The Munsters or the Adaams Family. Yes, I know they're supposed to be fruit-bat vegetarian hybrid humans, but going into this series that's really what you need to know. They're like those kooky families, but while dealing with the tough enough issues of trying to fit in they also have to deal with real dangers connected to the nature of being who they are.

In this book that danger happens to be a "curse" that could hit a bit too close to home. Along the way Maddy is up to her old tricks, well new ones really as there are no vampire neighbors left to stalk this time around. Lexie, she's managed to end up even more tragic than usual. Hudson, well he's here, but well he's just Hudson. Pete finally gets to show off his true self. And much like the first book it feels as though the major dramatic showdown scene is rushed through, still it sort of works as these crazy creatures would probably do things rather quickly even if it makes the book's big scene feel a little anticlimactic. That said, I liked it enough that I'm onto the next. 4/5 stars
