Idn teave you in a dark place when you put it down The unexpected build to the end was just a good enough amount of surprise and definitely not predictable I ook forward to reading the next book which I hope comes along uickly Refreshing fun intriguing and clever What can a reader want Over the ast ten years there has been an explosion of genre specific themes in teen writing From Harry Potter to Twilight we have seen the rise and fall of many different authors views on where magical children and supernatural plots should go In his book Fangs and Stilettos Anthony DiFore manages to mix the concepts of these two worlds and sprinkle in a Bidadari yang Mengembara little The Devil Wears Prada for good measure I won tie the premise of the book is a Red River Girl little shaky The idea that the fashion industry is driven by supernatural entities under the umbrella of a curse to help mankind is aittle far fetched Why don t they operate a chain of homeless shelters or food kitchens if they truly want to help the success of us mere humans However having said that DiFore manages to weave a tale that though not entirely believable is completely coherent and stays true to its target in terms of both its plot and audience The intricacies of the plot are a La strada delle croci little muddled as the factions preparing for war or in this case exposure are glimpsed only conceptually with their motivations carryingittle substance But that aside the writing style and resulting characters drive this book from the first page to the ast The tone of the book is fast paced but also welcoming you can certainly put it down but at times it s hard to do so And the relationships between the characters are kept simple there are no confusing unnecessary back stories to bog down the direction of the plot The dialogue can seem somewhat stilted in parts but we don t mind because it carries everything to where the writer wants to take it The villain Candace Brown is cruel and devious and operates within the scope of her own inflated ego Some would say this is typical of both a master within the fashion industry and one who has spent hundreds of years perfecting her magical abilities Regardless she is captured wonderfully as a woman with her own ambitions Also written wonderfully is her neglected daughter Mauria who at times offers moments of insight reflecting the frustration and turmoil faced by under supported children both gay and straight There is also something to be said for enemies putting aside petty differences and teaming up against a common foe The author paints the players spot on adding color to what could have been an otherwise sepia toned pallet of storytelling Overall if you re ooking for a teen oriented book there are certainly worse books to pick up DiFore also makes the daring move of The Ballad of Dorothy Wordsworth leaving the story open for a seuel The excellently drawn characters have challenges to protect both their families and way ofife The strongest commendation I can give this book is that yes I would read whatever comes next With the right mindset Fangs and Stilettos is definitely a book you could sink your teeth into And maybe even come back for seconds Fangs and Stilettos was a very refreshing you could sink your teeth into And maybe even come back for seconds Fangs and Stilettos was a very refreshing It s a supernatural read that s a bit far from the norm DiFiore s take on supernatural s and how they came to be was brilliant I couldn t stop reading because I Wanted Know What He Had To Say About Each to know what he had to say about each being The hierarchy how the supernaturals are bound gave a very interesting twist to the whole plot as well The characters were intriguing and big time fashionistasMarciano so then the others I earned a ot of things regarding people who Pretty Reckless (All Saints High, love fashion There was also plenty of comic relief that had me bursting outaughing during various parts of the reading Marciano being the most notable hilarious character on that note even with the circumstances everyone was going through I was also very curious to earn about the Twins powers and how they reacted to other supernatural s but reading about them just made it even sad to know that so many of their kind had died before they actually stood up for themselves it just seemed ike the others were very easily beat Something that showed DiFiore s originality and The West Transformed left a pleasant mark was the names he gave the supernaturalsike the Colors or thirteen sit was all interesting Fangs and Stilettos was also a great read because of the relationships between the characters it was a nice thing to see and by that I mean the familial bond by blood or not was effortlessly felt Another thing though I am not sure if one should be pleased or not by the way DiFiore portrayed Candice Brown and the way she treated people including her daughter To read about a Villain as nonchalantly cold as she is was remarkable he did a very good job because I don t know if it s just me or not but throughout the reading I had to keep reminding myself that Candice was the bad guy even while reading about the terrible things she was capable of Even though Fangs and Stilettos was a very appealing read especially with the world of supernatural s and powers DiFiore gave them the slight cliff hanger at the end sucks big time for me because now I am desperately waiting for the next book in the series With a plot about vampires and other supernatural creatures running the fashion industry the reader is already prepped for a zany adventure And I admit it s easy to gobble up this book as a tasty confection and miss all the nutritional value But DiFiore doesn t cater to a youthful audience so much as create one on the tail end of this book I guarantee you l have a ighter heart and a uicker smileThis is the sort of YA I want my children to read DiFiore uses a deft hand to weave the healthy and wholesome into an irreverent plot His anguage is punchy and modern it took me half the book to realiz. Industry Like most people you were wrong Since togas were haute couture supernatural beings have been relegated to the fashion industry by an ancient curse You can blame de.
