Enter Cally Monture, an unexpected threat from a trash zip code. When their first meeting leads to tragic results, Lilith is hungry for revenge.
From School Library Journal:
Grade 9 Up—This novel follows a clique of high-class Old Blood vampires, led by heiress Lilith Todd, who attend a private New York City high school, and their run-in with a strange New Blood girl, Cally, in the park. It turns out to be an ambush by the Van Helsings, vampire hunters, and it leaves one of the Old Bloods dead and the others fleeing for their lives. Peter Van Helsing cannot bring himself to harm Cally, and they begin a forbidden relationship. It turns out that she has a human mother and an Old Blood vampire father whom she has never met. He sends her off to Bathory Academy—where, you guessed it, Lilith and her cronies are not at all happy to see her. Lilith already wants to rip Cally apart, but actually attacks her after she sees her promised husband flirt with the newcomer. This is a light read with some intrigue. It is clearly the set-up for a series. A glossary explaining the origins and terminology of vampire mythology is included.—Corinda J. Humphrey, Los Angeles Public Library
