    I loved these books and wished that I was the main character - to have a vampire court you adn give you want you want would have been great when I was a teenager.

    This is not about satisfying endings, but about moral lessons, at least in book 1 and 2. Moral lesson learned, book over, questions remain unanswered (and uninteresting because the point of it all has been reached... which becomes problematic by book 3...) The Cheerleader - great, real spooky vampire, uncomfortable, a protagonist you understood and felt for even if you didn't agree with her, bit of a rushed end but all in all a solid, entertaining, creepy read.

The Cheerleader - great, real spooky vampire, uncomfortable, a protagonist you understood and felt for even if you didn't agree with her, bit of a rushed end but all in all a solid, entertaining, creepy read. The Return of the Vampire - repetitive, kind of dull, and THE most annoying protagonist. Devnee you are no friend of mine. Though there were a few tweaks, essentially, this was just like reading The Cheerleader. The Vampire's Promise - this time with a group scene! So to shake things up Cooney gives us a group of stereotypes, a vampire, a promise and a choice... no wait, actually (view spoiler)[ two vampires! One is of the shutters, Althea's I pressume? (hide spoiler)] And it's really... like a drawn out, never ending scene with unsympathetic, under developed characters that I'm supposed to care about? I don't know, it just felt like a waste of time to me, also... ALSO ... spoilers ahead! (view spoiler)[ Is Cooney kidding me with this final page of the last book - "Memory faded. (...) The hard-learned lessons, the heroism, and the sacrifices were gone as if they had never been" - A) that makes this book a futile endeavor indeed, I mean, the whole third installment is about these vapid kids making the right - better - choice in the end and they all forget it once they are away from the vampire? Then WHAT WAS THE POINT!? B) The whole book by consequence is entirely inconsequential. I mean are you telling me that Althea and Devnee RUINED lives, then decided to make the right choice, but then NEVER REMEMBERED IT AT ALL? While the victims are clearly still in the hell zone of the vampires' powers as laid out in this third book... what the hell? The victimizers get off scott free, not even having to remember the lessons learned, while the victims suffer forever... like whaaat? The first two books were like a piece of "don't be swayed to evil/the easy way out" "accept yourself" "work hard" "don't envy" moral cake, but if none of those memories are retained, then the girls didn't learn anything at all, did they? So I repeat WHAT WAS THE POINT? (hide spoiler)]

    Probably terrible now, but a big nostalgic read as a young teen. 😊

I remembered this set of books as being some of the weirdest of the Point Horror series I read (though I loved the second one to bits). This is mainly because the vampire in question is a strange mix of the culturally popular image - the cape, the courtly manners etc, and older myths that come out through his ability to be non-corporeal, and association with putrefaction and strong odour - particularly in the second book. The vampire's Modus Operandi is the most peculiar bit, for while he does drain a victim it is more a draining of spirit, personality and energy than blood. The vampire himself cannot pick or pursue a victim, but requires them to be chosen for him. In the first two books, this is done in exchange some quality that the victim possessed (for example popularity, beauty, intelligence...), which will be given to the heroine who inhabits the house in which the vampire resides. The reason for this is never really explained, though it does serve to illustrate the moral of the books which I take to be showing the results of selfish behaviour. The third book breaks a lot of the conventions of the trilogy - even of the Point Horror series itself, since it's told from the point of view of a group of characters rather than just one protagonist (usually female). The first issue is that the vampire does away with the bargaining of victims for qualities (though I suppose you could say he bargained one life for the rest), the second being that there turn out to be two vampires; one in the shutters and one under the floor. This makes little sense if you're trying to fit it in with the series; the floor vampire could have been absent previously, but when the shutter vampire comes out he isn't bound by the need to have victims provided - which makes the reason why it may have done so before more important. Maybe it has a desire to please teenage girls? Also I found that the point of view switching made what small amount of plot there was drag considerably.

    I found the concept of these "Vampires" to be somewhat interesting and for the life of me I cannot get the line ,"oh they'll just be a little bit tired." out of my head. But other then that they were pretty slow and boring. We don't ever get to find out what happened to the victims just that the main character screwed them over making them 'just a little bit tired' to get all that she ever wanted only to come to the conclusion that that wasn't worth it, learn to be happy with what she has and th I found the concept of these "Vampires" to be somewhat interesting and for the life of me I cannot get the line ,"oh they'll just be a little bit tired." out of my head.

What about them? It's not like they just go back to being normal. So very nice of them. The other two books in the series are basically a rehash of the same storyline but with different people. I'm not even sure why I continued to read them since after I got part way through the second I realized that nothing new was going to happen. A twist in the third had me a bit confused but it wasn't as surprising as it might have been if I hadn't read about it before hand. I do wish that we got to learn more about the vampire and how it came to be in the house. meh.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I loved this trilogy. I read it when I was in my teens and I have a feeling if I were to reread the whole thing, I would still love it the same. The trilogy kind of follows one evil vampire through three "time periods" (okay, really it may be the same decade) but the vampire comes in contact with three different girls who all wish in some way that they were each popular. The first girl wants to be a cheerleader (The Cheerleader), the second girl, Lacey, wants to be noticed but almost ends up sac I loved this trilogy.

They are teen books, so expect that "teen/ junior young adult" level if you try them out. (Read: they may not appeal to older teens or adults). I may just love them because I read and liked them as a teen.
