Title: Jessica Rules the Dark Side
By: Beth Fantaskey
Genre: Young Adult Paranormal Romance
Released: January 10th, 2012
About the book:
It’s one thing to find out you’re a vampire princess. It’s a whole other thing to actually rule. Newly married Jessica Packwood is having a hard enough time feeling regal with her husband, Lucius, at her side. But when evidence in the murder of a powerful elder points to Lucius, sending him into solitary confinement, Jessica is suddenly on her own. Determined to clear her husband’s name, Jessica launches into a full-scale investigation, but hallucinations and nightmares of betrayal keep getting in her way. Jessica knows that with no blood to drink, Lucius’s time is running out. Can she figure out who the real killer is—and whom she can trust—before it’s too late?
It is finally here!!!! It has been a extremely long and pain staking wait for this book. I was in love with this series from the first chapter of Jessica's Guide to Dating on the Darkside. There is just something unique about this story that others are lacking. It is not all about the danger and mystery of their kind, but more of a young girl that demands the right to make her own choices. As we begin Jessica's Guide for Ruling the Darkside I was frustrated with her character. After showing so much potential in the conclusion of book one; she has regressed to the weak and simple girl that hide behind Lucius coat tails. This angered me to no end. I was horrified to see Lucius's character have to battle for his very existence in this book, but I was elated to see the opportunity for Jessica to "vamp up". I was beside myself with joy when Jessica put Lucius's uncle in his place at the trial meeting. This was what I had been waiting for! Jessica finally steps into the role of a Queen. She is no longer weak, and she is no longer taking there sh**! On the sidelines it was awesome to also have Mindy's story continue. While, I am discouraged to have seen them step away, and return to California. I am anxious to see if their characters will take a much firmer role in the future. Obviously, this is also my way of also saying that I am hoping for the story continues. Beth Fantaskey is an incredible author, and knows how to tell an awesome story. I love following her characters as they develop and grow. It is obvious that Fantaskey is maturing as an author, and will be a name to watch in the years to come. I am a huge fan, and will continue to follow her books closely; as I am anxious to see where the books take her in the future.
