The Vampire Underground (Grisly High #1) by Brian Rowe

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.

The Vampire Underground (Grisly High Trilogy, Book 1)

This series is put together for high action packed scenes, a lot of action and running mixed with some humor. These teens are running to save their lives and it seems that there is always one thing after another to get away from.

When it comes to Brin, I found her a great character. I think that she has the most development in the series ( ( I read this book and the 2nd right after each other) Although Brin is not all that excited about the class, she is up to trying.  The assignment eventually brings on more than they were ready for and I had a laugh out moment when Anaya (the mean girl ) becomes outnumbered herself.

It's more horror than comedy, and these vampires are mean, ugly and out for blood.

Brin and Ash make a perfect team, best friends and they kick butt. No romance here, just action, fast paced story that makes for a good run for your life/survivor read.
