Cover Review: The cover is okay. I don’t have much to say about it.

Tag Line: Kidnapping. Car Theft. Murder. Vampires. True love… Kerry’s got a tough night ahead of her.

This book was pretty good. In Companions of the Night, we follow 16-year-old Kerry. One night, Kerry’s younger brother misses his bear. He left it at the laundry.

Kerry, even though she doesn’t have a driver’s license, sneaks out of the house and drives to the laundry with her dad’s car. Once she gets there, other people come in right after her. With them is a young man who they all claim is a vampire. Kerry doesn’t believe them. She just thinks that they are a little crazy. She was wrong.

Kerry had such a crazy night! I couldn’t imagine being in her position. I wouldn’t know who to trust or what to do. I really respect Kerry for keeping everything under control. She kind of acts like everything is normal while on the inside she is completely the opposite. I really enjoyed having Kerry as a protagonist and I can’t wait to read more by Vivian Vande Velde!

  1. Kidnapping. Car Theft. Muder. Vampires. True, that's a lot for one night! She must be really strong! ๐Ÿ™‚ Haven't heard of this book before, so thank you for the review.

  2. I guess that's the benefit of our generation…if real zombies/vampires/werewolves showed up at the laundromat we'd be totally cool and have all of this knowledge to fight them haha. Thanks for the review!
