    What a great introduction to the "Sucked In" series! If you've read any of the other books in the series, or even if you haven't, you should definitely read this one. Charissa provides great backstories for the characters that you meet in the rest of her books, which only adds depth to the rest of the series. If you haven't read her books yet, this is a great place to start. If you have read her books, grab this one, you'll thank me later!

    We all want fantasy to be reality, but oftentimes don't realize what that would actually entail. Charissa Dufour's "Sucked In" is a funny and exciting example of that old adage, "Be careful what you wish for." If you love vampire novels, don't miss out on this debut novel by Charissa Dufour! Readers of Patricia Wrede's "Dealing With Dragons" and any of Terry Pratchett's novels will love this book!
