Description

Mina seemed to not react to horrible and traumatising events at all, she's always back to watching movies or eating sandwiches minutes after learning something horrifying.

After growing up in the town that inspired Dracula, Mina loves nothing more than a creepy horror movie. This transported me right back to my high school days, when I obsessed (and I mean 'OBSESSED') over YA vampire book series like there was no tomorrow. I really enjoyed how this story had actual legends and myths of New Orleans interwoven throughout this very unique tale. Your words, like your reviews, bring books to life and give them a voice before the front cover is even turned. There are Vampire references aplenty (Kristy Swanson’s Buffy the Vampire Slayer also gets a lot of love) but fans of Anne Rice, in particular, will be right at home here.

After securing a job at her sisters work place; the Mansion of Macabre where her sisters very attractive roommate Jared also works, things are about to take an unexpected turn. When a body is discovered with fang marks in their neck and a fist full of hair suspiciously similar to her sisters, Mina ends up on a journey to track down a killer that has a more direct link to her than she thinks. She wants to explore New Orleans darkest secrets – vampire tours, seedy bars, spooky cemeteries, disturbing local myths.

There was a lot I really enjoyed about Mina and the Undead, not least the numerous 80s and 90s horror references set throughout the novel. Following a seventeen-year-old girl (Mina) who grew up in Whitby (a coastal town in England where Draculas’ ship crashes in the 1897 Stoker novel) but is relocating to New Orleans for the summer to stay with her older sister. Amy tells the story so very well that you seem to slip into the book and become part of it, rather than just a mere reader. On her first trial day at the Horror Mansion there is an accident that will trigger a series of events that will put Mina in great danger. It’s on my bucket list to visit New Orleans one day and experience a slice of its rich history and culture.The two discover a dark underworld around them that ties to some of New Orleans oldest and most frightening legends. While it's not a perfect story, I think if you are in the right head space, it can be a hell of a good time. New Orleans also happens to be a great place for horror addicts with many legends, historical buildings and of course, many dark secrets.
