Review: Vampire Beach: Bloodlust by Alex Duval
First Line: “Malibu.”
Jason Freeman has moved across country to Malibu, California and he could not be more excited. He can’t wait to hang out at the beach and meet alot of new girls. After he starts school, he learns the typical high school hierarchy where the popular crowd runs the school. But this elite group is a bit different from the normal cheerleaders and jocks. After a girl washes up dead following a party, Jason is even more curious as to what makes this “in” crowd so different.
Based on the summary on the back of the book, I figured most of it would be California, surfer dude dialogue. I wasn’t far off. This is easily could be titled the “OC Vampires”.
The new guy from Michigan, Jason immediately fits in with the popular crowd. It seemed a little convenient with how fast he was able to move right into the popular group. Jason is a definite good guy, which is fine, but it doesn’t quite fit in with the crazy parties he goes to.
It took a while for the story to get going. It was all set up, but because this is the first in a series, it makes sense. I would suggest this for just something to do if you have a couple of hours to kill.
For: Readers who want to see vampires take over Laguna Beach
