Ethics of the Undead

I just finished reading Ethics of the Undead by Loren Schechter.  It sounds like a funny paranormal book.  It even starts out good, but then it goes on and on and on.  You get the drift.  There are a lot of characters and it is hard to keep track of all of them.  Here is my review:

Ethics of the Undead by Loren Schechter is a young adult parnormal romance/mystery book. Four students are getting scholarships to Idaho's Sawtooth Wilderness School. Kathy, Hector, Soo, and Lionel are off to their new school but they have no idea that they might never leave the school alive. The school is actually run for and by vampires. The school needs to show that they have a diverse student population (Soo is Korean, Lionel is African-American, and Hector is Latino). Kathy was recruited for revenge. 

The new students arrive at the school and quickly find out that everyone is a vampire and that they are not allowed to leave. The book than jumps to a trial where Kathy and Hector are on trial for killing Conrad, a vampire student who was in love with Kathy. The book jumps back and forth between the trial and the events leading up to the trial. After reading through the whole book (and it was long) it ends without resolving all the issues. 

This book sounded great, but it was only mediocre. It was way, way too long and to many characters. I think if the book was edited and rewritten, it could be very good. I will give it 2.5 stars out of 5. 

I received a complimentary copy of this book from NetGalley/Publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Thank you for checking out my review of Ethics of the Undead.  I am currently reading If You've Got It, Haunt It by Rose Pressey.  It is just wonderful.  It is the first book in a new series (the next book will be out in late June).  Have a wonderful weekend and Happy Reading!
