I love Katie Maxwell's adult books (she writes under the pen-name Kate McAlister) Her young adult books have the same sharp humor and fresh tone of voice as her other books. I especially enjoy her "vampire" series. The really neat thing about this book is how she has combined Norse folklore (Loki) with vampires for a fresh twist. Her young adult protagonist reacts just as my middle-school students would and her mother reacts just as my mother would. An otherall enjoyable series by one of my favorite young authors.
