                                                        Book Synopsis
Welcome to Western Europe in 2020.

The International Vampire Council are in the middle of intense negotiations with the Global Six when a mysterious plot is revealed to end Manon's life and thinly veiled lies Mikkel has told his wife will be exposed once and for all.

Manon is sent into hiding with Emmerik as her protector while a deal can be negotiated to spare her life.

As the clock ticks toward a catastrophic outbreak of new virus which seeks to destroy not only the Lycan population but millions of humans along with it, two ancient vampires return prematurely from their time in the ground, and their mood is less than receptive.

What will happen? Who will live? Who will face betrayal? Who will die? Sometimes, the most devastating secrets are better off dead and buried.

This novel is not YA friendly, contains plenty of snark, supernatural creatures included, but not limited to, vampires and Lycans, not to mention a few choice scenes of sex and death. It is not for the faint of heart.

Buy on Amazon: Better Off Dead: Book II (The Vamp Saga)

My Review
Having not read the first book in the series, I found this book a little hard to understand. I really hate when a book in a series bogs you down with loads of information from the first book, but I felt this book didn't give you enough information as to what happened in the previous book. There are so many characters, I had a hard time keeping them straight. But, if you like drama, back biting and secret plots against each other, you will like this book! I was a little sad that I didn't connect with Manon, the main character. But I did love Emmerik, her stepson, who she is sleeping with! All in all, if I had read the first book, Death Wish, I think I would have really enjoyed this book. So, my recommendation is, read the first one and then come back to this one.

Good Book!
