    I wanted to start with something nostalgic as a I begin a month of spooky reads, Point Horror grew my love of the genre as a teen and it’s fun to revisit these again. Admittedly this wasn’t as strong as The Cheerleader but this sequels best moments stem from the reader knowing exactly how manipulative The Vampire is and how the main protagonist Devnee falls into he’s trap. There’s some subtle changes to the original story and having a different heroine was very effective.

Being similar to the first entry means that I’m not sure if this was one of the many titles I originally had, but I’m hopeful that the trilogy ends on a high.

Cooney's contributions to Scholastic's Point Horror imprint. I grew up reading these books and they influenced many of my own writings. My favorites were the Losing Christina trilogy and the Vampire's Promise trilogy, although the names of those trilogies came later. THE RETURN OF THE VAMPIRE was actually renamed EVIL RETURNS when it was repackaged into the trilogy, something that confused me as a kid when I went to the library and found both editions, seemingly different books, until you opened up the covers. Cooney has a pretty unconventional take on vampires. This one lives in a spooky tower and grants wishes that come with strings attached, kind of like Jareth from Labyrinth. Also like Jareth from Labyrinth, he has a somewhat inappropriate relationship with the teenage girls who enter into bargains with him. It's not quite sexual but there's a tension there that made me feel uncomfortable as a kid without quite being able to identify why. This is the stuff that writes a thousand fanfics. The first book in this series, THE CHEERLEADER, is about a lonely girl named Althea who desperately wants to be popular, so she feeds some girls to a vampire in order to become a well-liked cheerleader. A flawed character to be sure, but relatable and interesting. My only qualms with the series were a lack of closure and the fact that Althea seemingly doesn't have any parents and lives in her house alone?? It's very disjointed and doesn't have the polish of some of her other books I've read. THE RETURN OF THE VAMPIRE features another girl with a weird name. Devnee. Devnee is also a new girl who's desperate and alone, but she's a bit more unlikable and greedier than Althea. She doesn't just want to be popular, she wants to be beautiful... smart... everything. And the vampire is only too happy to give her what she wants, as long as she gives him what he wants. The relationship between Devnee and the vampire definitely feels erotic. Some of the things he says to her could totally be taken the wrong way (but maybe Cooney intended that). Sadly, he doesn't get as much screen time here as he did in the first. He doesn't feel quite as seductive, nor as chilling. Devnee also feels like a ridiculous caricature of a character, and I kind of hated her throughout the whole book-- especially at the end, which feels hugely anticlimactic and devoid of character development. This is the first CBC book I'm giving less than three stars. It feels very dialed in. It's a shame, because the first one was so good and really provides a lot of set-up for more Faustian bargains. Oh, well. 2 stars

    Is it Fate? It seems like the vampire's house attracts exactly the type of girl it could market its wares to. At least Devnee has her entire family behind her.

It seems like the vampire's house attracts exactly the type of girl it could market its wares to. At least Devnee has her entire family behind her. The lead of our previous book lived all by her lonesome, which gave her a great disadvantage considering the craftiness of our antagonist. In any case, the vampire has grown even more powerful despite his earlier defeat, since aside from telepathy, he can go pretty much anywhere so that Devnee no longer had to deliver victims to him at his lair. This time, our lead's wish is for Beauty. The prospective victim was rather nasty so this seemed more justified than the prequel, where a nice girl got shafted. And yet, I feel like even a repugnant hypocrite does not deserve to be denied the thing that they cherish the most. There are many ways to pull yourself up without dragging people down. That's just a personal opinion, though it won't have made for an exciting plot. Now our vampire has become more thorough and subtle in his seduction. He no longer resorts to blackmail, devising a truly insidious scheme in its stead. Because he can now grant more than one wish, and how can a simple girl fare, facing the fulfillment of all her desires? I think this book is much more nuanced and interesting than the first one. I'm surprised at how creative the author is - she's not a lazy hack who merely follows a template. She made a lot of intriguing changes in our villain's MO that 100% works. I'm just a bit disappointed with the ending. It had a chance to be so much more, something genuinely, gloriously dark, but it faltered in the final stretch. Still, I'll be reading the last book in this trilogy. I'm rating it 7/10 or 3 stars out of 5.

That’s what I feel the moral of this book should be. This book revolves around a girl, Devnee, and the vampire who takes away her shadow to live in her and to implant evil, dark thoughts into this innocent kind girl. Devnee’s only weakness was that she was not satisfied with herself. She wanted beauty, brains and to ‘have it all’. The vampire manipulated Devnee’s desire for beauty to his own best advantage, for when she desired beauty, she was willing to comply with everythingthe vampire wanted to do and needed Devnee's help in. This shows that you cannot really trust someone who claims to be on your side because whatever he is doing for you may not be the best for you, but for the person himself. Everyone has selfishness in him, whether or not it is just a tinge of it or a whole lot ofit. Devnee thought that the vampire was really keen on helping her and she never pondered why the vampire was helping her when he would get nothing in return but the souls of the people who Devnee wanted the talents from. I feel that it’s really pathetic that she relied on the vampire for support and help when the vampire was actually sucking away her soul and he was not helping her at all, he was making use of her to kill. And Devnee was naïve enough to trust the vampire and to let him into her every thought. But I was assured when Devnee finally woke up in the end and found out that the vampire was not her friend all along. It was her courage and determination to free herself as well as the others whose souls had been sucked by the vampire that destroyed the vampire, I feel, and not the weird things her mother hung on the wall to ward off vampires. No one knew of Devnee's evil deeds and no one was ever going to. Devnee rejected the vampire's offer of having everything because her conscience was starting to complain. She knew, deep in her heart, that all these were wrong. And that was when the strong side of her emerged from a weakling, and she returned beauty to Aryssa, and brains to Victoria. She is a brave girl who is willing to face the consequences of her actions and I admire her courage to stand up and confess. She is a truly courageous girl. I especially liked a certain line in this book. ‘She felt the vampire tapping at her skull and did not let him in. Force of mind could keep him out of her thoughts. It was only when she weakened, lowered her guard, or had wishes and yearnings and aches for things to be different—only then could the vampire come in.’ This line shows that when you are morally and emotionally weak, that is when foreign thoughts, often evil and undesirable, will pollute your mind. Which is why we all need to be strong-willed and when people try to talk you into, or out of, something, you'll know when to stop and say 'no'. Great lines from the book: ‘She was wilted, like a flower that had once been a proud tulip and was now just a broken stem.’ ‘But ahead of her, equally dark, attached to her feet the way it ought to be, spread her own shadow, huge and threatening in the setting sun.’ ‘She felt the vampire tapping at her skull and did not let him in. Force of mind could keep him out of her thoughts. It was only when she weakened, lowered her guard, or had wishes and yearnings and aches for things to be different—only then could the vampire come in.’

    As a teen, I went through a Vampire phase. But not the sparkly sort of vampires that populate more modern YA romances (although Louis from the Interview With a Vampire was pretty freaking emo). I liked scary vampires...who are actually VAMPIRES. And this vamp was particularly evil and tricksy. I should note that this is the rare book of this sort (80s-90s YA Paranormal) where the main female character isn't a drop dead gorgeous creature with stunning green eyes and flowing red/golden hair.

I should note that this is the rare book of this sort (80s-90s YA Paranormal) where the main female character isn't a drop dead gorgeous creature with stunning green eyes and flowing red/golden hair. Yeah...for a while those physical characteristics were a thing. Just ask any Christopher Pike book from that period. However, this Ugly Duckling trope is a plot point. And Devnee isn't exactly ugly...she's just...well...ordinary. Like 98% of the population. But this is an unspeakable sin in her mind. She wants to be pretty SO. FREAKING. BAD. She reasons if she were pretty, all her problems would be solved and life would be all sunshine and rainbows and pink fluffy unicorns. Yeah, dude. Pretty fixes everything. GREAT message to be sending to teen readers, btw, many of whom are also feeling the awkward effects of puberty. Because you KNOW this is what they'll take away from it. Oh, Devnee. If you only had a brain. (but more on this later) Now most girls facing an identity crisis and looking to improve their appearance would get some new makeup and YouTube some tutorials (or, since this was the 90s, check out the beauty tips in Seventeen Magazine). Maybe get a different haircut or start a new workout routine/diet. But not our girl Devnee. Nope. She's lazy and looking for a Quick Fix. As a senior citizen, she'd the sort to fall victim to phone/internet scams. And by then she'll be so old that beauty won't matter anymore because she'll be all wrinkly and stuff. Totally NOT HOT. Good thing she's got a vampire living in her creepy old house. And not just any vamp either. This one grants wishes!! And speaking of identity crisis...methinks this vampire is having one himself. Perhaps he fancies himself a genie of sorts? If only every teen girl had a Friend Like That. All that's missing is the song and dance routine. In fact, this would have made things soooo much better. Except the Vampire would be voiced by Christopher Walken rather than Robin Williams (R.I.P) Of course shallow and stupid wishes come with a price. Duh! Devnee does, indeed, wake up gorgeous the morning after. And weirdly, no one questions it. Not her family, not her new classmates. Well, Mom is getting suspicious.... Devnee soon learns that in order to gain her good looks, the beauty was taken away from her classmate, Popular Girl & Queen Bee Aryssa. Honestly, what did she expect? There's only a certain amount of uber hotness in the universe. It had to come from somewhere. And Aryssa is not doing so good, btw. Because in taking away her beauty, he also sucked away her soul. But even after discovering the side effects of her wish, do you think Devnee stops? NOPE!!! Almost immediately, she is not satisfied with simply having Good Looks. Soon she wants Brains to go along with it (Braaaaaaaaains) and taps the smarts of another classmate. Now if she truly had intelligence, she would realize what she's doing is just not kosher and freaking STOP already. But maybe this was BOOK Smarts and not Common Sense. There's a big (HUGE) difference there, you know. Honestly, I kind of hate Devnee right now. I get that she's super insecure, but that's still no excuse for being a soul stealer. Now one would think that Karma would catch up with this girl eventually and deliver her a cosmic bitchsmack, but, honestly, the ending is sort of a cop out. Almost too late, Devnee starts to feel kind of bad about everything and returns the "gifts" to their rightful owners. And she becomes plain-Jane Devnee again and is happy being herself. She also refuses to listen to the vampire anymore. Overall... An oddly Lifetime Movie of the Week ending for a YA Horror book. Thank goodness there's a threequel.

    This was fairly boring. Nothing happened for the entire first half except a shadow moving about. Also the "rules" for the vampire seem to have changed since the first book.

Cooney's flowery and poetic writing style really helped establish an interesting mood in the previous book, but here it feels almost parodic. The protagonist in this book follows in the footsteps of Althea (who has since moved away and now barely warrants. mention), with an equally strange choice of name - Devnee. And pretty much exactly like the previous book, Devnee longs to be beautiful and popular Her family is new to town, moving in to Althea's old digs, and of course Devnee's bedroom ends up being in the tower, and of course she ends up making a deal with the vampire. I think retreading the same ground did not help when it came to this sequel feeling like a parody of the first. On the plus side, I did once again like the descriptions of the vampire. There are a couple of minor differences - there's some nonsense about Devnee's shadow leaving her as she makes deals with the undead, and instead of just a general improvement to her appearance, Devnee seems to acquire certain traits from the vampire's victims this time. There's also some inconsistencies with exactly how the vampire engages with his victims, with The Cheerleader requiring a more active involvement from the protagonist than what we get here. Unfortunately none of this is particularly inspired, and the majority of the book is moping and wishing and reading the increasingly frustrating thoughts of an incredibly self-centred teenage girl. The hurried conclusion is also laughably weak and sudden. I'm quite baffled at how Caroline B. Cooney can pretty much tell the same story twice, and yet there's such a distinct and vast difference in how enjoyable they both are. This is quite easily once of the worst Point Horror books I've read thus far, and I'm now rather apprehensive about reading her other contributions.

Devnee makes the tower her bedroom & it is in here where she comes across the vampire. He senses a weakness in Devnee & he offers to grant her a wish.

My Thoughts: I’m probably in the minority but I actually found this book more interesting than the first one. Reasons for this? Well, compared to Althea we know that Devnee actually has a family & they do feature in the story from time to time which I liked. I also liked that events from the first book were also mentioned in this one. Although, I’m still wondering what happens to the vampire’s victims after the vampire drains them off life? Again, are they forever drained of life? Or do they eventually die? Or can they regain their strength? I’m off now to read the follow up….

    I've been rereading the Point Horror series I loved so much as a Tween. My rating is comparative to the other books in the series! This novel follows pretty much the same pattern as it's predecessor, The Cheerleader, except this time the protagonist, Devnee, has multiple wishes rather than just the one. I found this book to be a pale imitation of the first book. The main problem was, I didn't really care about the protagonist. I didn't feel much sympathy for Devnee, or any of the other characters I've been rereading the Point Horror series I loved so much as a Tween.

I found myself reading on mostly for any mentions of Althea and any clues as to what happened to her after the first book finished. A disappointing follow-up to the first book in the Vampire trilogy, in my opinion.

    I really enjoyed reading this book as it didn’t take long to read I loved the fact that Devnee found out the hard way what the cost of wishes can do to people Devnee found out that beauty isn’t everything and being the most popular isn’t always what it’s cracked up to be good read

    This was a slog to get through. It basically rehashes the first book, but with a different main character. She’s still boring and has no personality. I’ll read the last book in the trilogy, but I don’t have high hopes for it.

It was always cold ,dark and eerie in there, and it had shutters on the inside which she tried to open but couldn't until one day she made a wish.

She makes a terrible mistake and wishes something she really didn't mean she wanted so she tries to stop it from happening. Will she learn her lesson? Can she stop her mistaken wish from happening? Will she finally be happy with who she is and stop trying to be someone else? Thus is a very fast read, only 166 pages. .... It was an ok read,

As someone who struggles with self worth and the want of being attractive I can relate hardcore to the main character, at least in the first half. My heart literally broke for her when Trey and Aryssa were talking behind her back, especially when she tried so hard to be liked by them. It brought me back to my years in high school.

Whenever the vampire would appear, unwanted, and she would panic I would feel her anxiety and panic as if I were in the scene too, that’s good storytelling to me. I do wish we got one more chapter back at school in the end when we get to see the side characters once more, i think it would’ve made for a better conclusion. The one we got felt a bit abrupt. but overall, I definitely recommend, i didn’t expect to like it as much as I did.

    Very underdeveloped! The plot was very basic and 2 dimensional. The characters were very shallow and underdeveloped. You don't really get to know any of the characters except for the main character Devnee. I probably would have enjoyed this book more if I were 10 years younger. Very underdeveloped!
