The second book Deal or No deal by Erin McCarthy, I thought was a great book. This tells the story of a young vampire who comes face to face with her ex-fiance who she thought had betrayed her family and was involved in the killing of the rest of her family minus her brother peter. she is now using the the name Katie Stolin and is playing the Niece of Nick Stolin the man who turned her and her brother into vampires in hopes of saving their lives.
