Summary:
Last fall, Cynthia Rothschild saved her best friend, Annie (and everyone else in her high school) from the demon librarian, Mr. Gabriel. But now all that demon stuff is over, and Cyn is ready to have the best summer ever -- at theater camp (!) with her former crush and now boyfriend (!!), Ryan Halsey. Once she gets to camp, though, the best summer ever does not seem to be following the script. For one thing, there is Ryan's very talented and very female lifelong camp best friend, whom he has somehow failed to mention before now. For another, it appears the demon stuff is not as entirely over as Cyn had hoped. Also, there are some secrets that perhaps she should not have kept from Ryan for quite this long. At least any new demons that show up to ruin her summer can't possibly be as evil as Mr. Gabriel, who is, thankfully, very dead now. It's not like he could somehow come back to life to seek his terrible revenge or something. Right?

Summary

Summary

The stage is set for a fiendishly dramatic summer at theater camp for Cynthia and her boyfriend, Ryan. With no demons at all. Right?

Last fall, Cynthia Rothschild saved her best friend, as well as the entire student body, from the demon librarian, Mr. Gabriel, all while executing the most awesome set design for the school musical, Sweeney Todd . But now that all that demon stuff is behind her, Cyn is looking forward to the best summer ever at theater camp with her former-crush-and-now-boyfriend, Ryan Halsey. Once she gets to camp, though, Cyn realizes this summer might not be all she's been hoping for. First, Ryan's best camp friend is a girl (which Ryan had never mentioned to Cyn), and she just happens to be ridiculously pretty. Plus, it seems the demon stuff is not entirely over as Cyn had hoped. At least any new demons that show up to ruin her summer can't possibly be as evil as Mr. Gabriel. It's not like he could somehow come back to life to seek his terrible revenge or something. Best-selling author Michelle Knudsen brings back all the hilarity and horror (not to mention hot guys) in this sizzling sequel to Evil Librarian.

Horn Book Review

Cyn and Ryan (Evil Librarian) just want to enjoy a demon-free summer at drama camp. Then Cyn is assigned to set-design a musical written by cute camper Peter--who turns out to be a demon. That the good guys will win and Cyn and Ryan will work it out are givens, but plenty of supernatural action, snark, and kissing build to a satisfying conclusion. (c) Copyright 2017.

Kirkus Review

Take one part humor, add an equal part horror, and spice with teenage drama (musical and romantical) for a (slightly grim) laugh. After the events of Evil Librarian (2014), Cyn thought all would be smooth sailing. But she's still got problems: boyfriend Ryan has a very possessive best girl friend at musical-theater camp. Oh, and Cyn hasn't told him that she promised the demoness two more visits. And that's just the start. The (adorable) teen author of Cyn's show is a demon, even if he is the nice kindand he may have accidentally led Mr. Gabriel, who isn't dead after all, right to Cyn. Campers and counselors start to disappear, Mr. Gabriel's many-legged brother is lurking around, and they still want Cyn's friend as their child bride. What's a "super-roach" (demon-resistant human) to do? Snarky and witty, filled with some steamy dreams, bloody battles, and plenty of musical-theater references, this may not be quite as fizzy as the first bookbut it's still a hell of a ride. Levelheaded, confident, ambitious, highhanded Cyn may be imperfect, but she's also perfectly believable. Even the love quadrangle manages to be unexpected and not without flashes of humor. One secondary character is described as dark-skinned, which, combined with the absence of ethnic cues, points to Cyn and Ryan as being white. Campy, from the setting to the humor to the horror, and all the better for it. (Humorous horror. 13 up) Copyright Kirkus Reviews, used with permission.


Booklist Review

Do demons dream of musical theater? Of course! In this sequel to Knudsen's Evil Librarian (2014), we rejoin Cynthia, teen theater-set designer, after her defeat of the demon librarian Mr. Gabriel. Cyn's adventures attracted the attention of Peter, a supposedly good demon, whose fondest wish is to make it big on Broadway. Peter has invisibly linked himself to Cyn as she and her boyfriend, Ryan, head to theater camp, where the two lovebirds plan a peaceful summer. Peter also knows that Cyn is obligated to return twice more to the demoness queen, and things get hairy as Cyn discovers that Peter's exit has left a gaping entrance to the underworld. Ryan cranks up the drama factor with a secret of his own: his superhot best friend inflames Cyn with jealousy. Returning readers will love hearing from Cyn again, who narrates her story with aplomb and keeps readers laughing despite the hellfire and danger around every corner. A pleasing and excellently evil mix of regular theater kids with highly irregular death.--Howerton, Erin Downey Copyright 2017 Booklist
