Butler's young adult mystery novels feature strong female leads and are woven from elements of horror, suspense, comedy, and mystery, all in a modern, small town setting. She is best known for her Midnight Guardian Series (YA Paranormal Mystery) and Mothman Mysteries (YA Sci-Fi Mystery).
Butler is inspired by writers like Cassandra Clare, Jennifer Armentrout, Rachel Caine, Joss Whedon, and Patricia Briggs. Her work contains no profanity or explicit scenes, making it appropriate for pre-teen as well as teen readers.
When a mysterious, new player wields a deadly storm to force the men in black into lockdown, teens Eric and Bridget are suddenly separated. With Bridget on the inside and Eric on the outside, the two race to beat the clock and open the doors before the suits make the ultimate sacrifice to prevent the base from falling into the wrong hands.
Eric Jansen is an alien. Offworlder. Take me to your leader, fall from the sky, UFO jockey. The tattoo on his arm will reveal his true form which locals call Mothman, a winged creature formed of ashen gray skin and glowing red eyes. So when the recently deceased of Point Pleasant, West Virginia, start walking and talking, the Men in Black mark Eric as suspect number one.
Forward to the Fall.

This story is incredibly original and intriguing. What if a vampire could turn human again? What if he was a young vampire, one with his human family still living? How would his vampire friends react?
I found the interactions of the characters to be well thought out and intriguing. Some parts really tug at your heart, but it wasn't all drama either. This book is action-packed (underlined). The fights and plot twists come fast and furious and keep you guessing.
I also liked the way that Blake pulled in some of her own new takes on the super powers we have come to expect from werewolves. These werewolves have invisible claws, they can control wraiths, very cool twists on the old legends.
Overall, I think that Vampires Rule is a must-read. The cliffhanger at the end has my stomach in knots, craving more. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.
