Vampire Plagues Book Two: Paris, 1850 (book review)

Vampire Plagues Book Two: Paris, 1850, by Sebastian Rook, is the continuing story of Jack, an English urchin, and Ben and Emily, a wealthy boy and his sister. Having fought the vicious vampire god Camazotz earlier in the year, Ben and Emily are tired but optimistic. They think Camazotz has been banished to the deepest depths of Hell. But Jack isn't so sure. Was he really imagining the vampire god's voice promising to return? As his friends soon find out, Jack was right. But he's not in London anymore; he's in France. Now Jack, Ben, and Emily, with the help of a spunky French girl, Dominique, have to fight Camazotz once more, and this time they might not win.

I don't think I liked this book as much as the last, but it was still very good. The mix of old and new characters was interesting. I can't wait to read the next one in this series.
