KIRKUS REVIEW

Supernaturally perceptive teen Maggie Quinn battles evil again in this sequel (Prom Dates from Hell, 2007), which fast forwards to her first semester at Bedivere University (BU), where, to Maggie’s surprise, she finds herself rushing campus sororities. Although she rolls her eyes at hokey traditions and stereotypical members, Maggie plans to use details from rush to fuel an exposé that she hopes will get her on the staff of BU’s campus newspaper. So when Maggie’s story is published she’s thrilled to be the anonymous “Phantom Pledge” and can’t refuse the request to keep writing. Continuing on, Maggie pledges the powerful sorority, Sigma Alpha Xi, whose sisters seem suspiciously successful. However, as a pledge, Maggie’s own luck snaps into overdrive, blocking her own perceptive powers and her ability to realize that she’s tangling with evil again until it’s too late. Maggie’s snarky humor and quirky personality keeps this novel’s first half light, but the second takes a dark, page-turning twist as Maggie is forced to figure out and destroy the ancient source of the sisters’ power. (Horror. YA)
