MEMORIES OF ENVY
This third installment of Hendee’s Vampire Memories series relies on developing character relationships to overcome a fairly standard storyline. The idea that there are good vampires and evil vampires isn’t exactly groundbreaking, but Hendee uses flashbacks to great advantage to develop her characters and advance her series’ story arc. Although there’s nothing really new here plot-wise, the vibrant characters are worth spending time with. Especially noteworthy is the chilling portrait of the seductive, cruel Simone, who scares even the bad vampires.
