"Known for lyrical, intoxicating prose and magical realism, Block delves into the vampire mythos with a racy story that sizzles and satisfies."~ Publisher's Weekly

"In Pretty Dead, Block takes what has up to now been the norm among vampire novels for teens and attempts to turn it on its head. This is a startlingly original work that drives a stake deep into the heart of typical vampire stories, revealing the deep loneliness and utter lack of romance in eternal life."~ School Library Journal

"The dramatic narrative blends elements of gothic romance with the lighter, fairy-tale setting of Weetzie Bat's LA: hot clubs, cool beaches, sushi and burgers. Offering sex, love, glamour, and danger, the book will be gobbled like candy by teen readers."~ Horn Book

"An opulent, surreal world of strange beauty, sudden horror, and lush romance."~ Cassandra Clare, New York Times bestselling author of The Mortal Instruments series

"I love the lush, melancholy world of this novel, and its heroine, with her century of secrets. "~ Claudia Gray, New York Times bestselling author of Evernight
