The Vampire Underground by Brian Rowe
Amazon / Goodreads
The Vampire Underground by Brian Rowe is about Sixteen year old film geek Brin Skar. During her first day of Film Class at Grisly High she discovers that the entire semester is devoted to the horror genre, which isn't Brin's cup o' tea! After the students are assigned a group horror film project and having a egotistical director Anaya, Brin finds herself at the creepy Bodie Ghost Town. Little does Brin and her classmates know that there is a lot more going on then just a film shoot.
The Vampire Underground was such a fantastic read. Honestly, I was about to start another book that I needed to read but just thought Id check out the first few paragraphs of The Vampire Underground first and was instantly hooked! I couldn't put this down! I loved the writing style and the characters were well written. My favorite character was Brin's best friend, Ash. He's thoughts on films and remakes are exactly the same as mine! (I won't give any spoilers away but he has a certain moment at a gas station that I swear Ive spoken the exact same words before)
The Vampire Underground was funny, interesting, and freaky. Brian Rowe is a great story teller and I can easliy see this becoming a movie. I honestly became freaked out by the "vampires" and can't wait to see what else is in store for Brin and her friends.
5 out of 5 stars Brian Rowe has made a new fan!

"16-year-old Brin Skar hates everything to do with the supernatural, so the obsessive film geek isn't happy when she discovers that her junior year Film class at Grisly High is devoted to the horror genre. She's even more disconcerted when she learns that six groups in the class will be writing and directing their very own horror movies.
Brin and five classmates travel to Bodie Ghost Town in California to shoot their creepy film, but they soon find themselves fighting a real terrifying threat when a clan of mean, bloodthirsty vampires emerge from beneath the surface and start attacking the group. The teens, headed by Brin and the egotistical director Anaya Frost, have no help from the outside and become outnumbered by the vampires a hundred to one.
But when Brin meets Paul, a helpful and smoldering vampire outcast who's had enough of his shameful life, she realizes he might be the only key to her survival."
