Synopsis: At the Afterlife Academy of Exceptionally Dark Arts, Lily Fielding is a measly trainee who dreams of one day becoming a Savior—those who visit vampire-infested high schools and put down the undead with their deadly crossbows. When Lily and her classmates Alice and Cara begin their latest assignment, it seems like just another run-of-the-mill gig: they’re to simply spot the Vamplayer—part vampire, part player—identify the popular girl he’s set his sights on, and befriend her before the Vamplayer can turn her to do his bidding. Before long, however, the Vamplayer sets his sights on Lily's friends, and she is left to face the threat alone while protecting her friends from the dark forces she has sworn to resist.
Review: Vamplayers is a fun and engaging book with a humorous, yet at times serious, look at the life of Lily, a Sister who wants to be a Savior. The Sisters get a routine job at another school (being a perpetual high school student sucks!) to find the Vamplayer and keep him away from his targeted popular girl. However, this is one assignment that is nothing like it appears to be. All the sudden Lily's friends are acting strange and she's got no one to turn to except for the 'scholarship' kids who are not-so-closeted sci-fi nerds. With action, drama, some romance, and laughs, Vamplayers is a lighthearted addition to your vampire bookshelf!
