    Bloody, long-lost family quarrels stalk the town with pep in this second entry into the Archie Horror novel canon. Rebecca Barrow's licensed-fiction debut showcases obvious appreciation for the inherently campy and juicy source material, as well as her trademark appreciation for the longings, ambitions, and secrets that make up teen girls' lives. Veronica might be sporting a new set of fangs and a mean right hook, but her thrill ride toward vamp-hood is steeped in carefully-grounding details and Bloody, long-lost family quarrels stalk the town with pep in this second entry into the Archie Horror novel canon. Rebecca Barrow's licensed-fiction debut showcases obvious appreciation for the inherently campy and juicy source material, as well as her trademark appreciation for the longings, ambitions, and secrets that make up teen girls' lives. Veronica might be sporting a new set of fangs and a mean right hook, but her thrill ride toward vamp-hood is steeped in carefully-grounding details and framed by her relationships to her parents, Archie and Betty, and perhaps most importantly Cheryl. The vampire has been used as a metaphor for many things, but its efficacy in examining queerness is unparalleled. Queer literature is often synonymous with romance, but Interview with the Vixen is a fine example of a seemingly-light teen book and obvious locus for romance containing not an overt romance plot but a story of tangled friendships, family power dynamics, and personal change that will feel familiar and empowering to many queer readers. The ambition and drive Veronica's spent so much time trying to curate and tame for the sake of her family, friends, and school come roaring out in the wake of her encounter with a powerful vampire--and once bitten, any shyness about what she wants and who she might become are gone, a neat mirror to the metamorphosis queer people often experience around coming out. Pearl girls gone feral, frenemy team-ups, Archie the Damsel, holy-water swimming pools, high-fashion stakes, and a visit or two to Pop's: Vixen has something for Riverdale fans, Buffy acolytes, and anyone who loves a good spin on the ultimate monster of camp (the vampire) (or possibly Cheryl Blossom...)

    This book was such a fun ride! I loved how strong they made Veronica and I was so happy to see Cheryl featured more as well

    Something bad is going down in Riverdale and Veronica's in for quite a change.  Not only does she stumble upon her dead parents' bodies, she's also attacked by a vampire leading her to get into a car crash with one of her classmates immediately afterwards.  Upon waking up alone in the woods she realizes something is very different.  With the help of her friends, she attempts to save Riverdale from a vampire takeover.  But will she be willing to go back to being her old, human self again afterwards?

This is my first Archie horror spin off book and I plan to read the graphic novel version right after this.  This book is not in any way connected to the show (Riverdale on Netflix). Veronica and Archie aren't a couple, neither are Betty and Jughead. Also Cheryl's brother Jason is very much alive and well.  This was a cool twist on a classic comic book that I absolutely loved as a kid. I remember always getting a new Archie comic whenever I'd go grocery shopping with my mom and I COULD NOT possibly have been happier when I heard that the comics were getting a reboot in book form to go along with the show. There were a couple minor things I didn't like, the biggest being that Jughead was not included in this one at all! Being my favorite character of the bunch, it sucked he wasn't involved.  I also found that the characters seemed to feel a little flat to me. Cheryl was lacking her feisty attitude, Veronica was lacking her usual confidence, etc.  This was still a fun read overall and I can't wait to read the graphic novel as well as A Werewolf in Riverdale.

    I should have known better I grew up reading Archie Comics, they were an integral part of my childhood. I never watched Riverdale, because I knew it would taint my feelings towards my favorite beloved characters. (Also, I wasn't happy with the casting choices- that's neither here nor there.) I'm older now though, and my husband bought this for me for my birthday. I know that none of this is cannon, and I like the horror genre so I would go into this knowing that this is essentially fan made. ugh T I should have known better I grew up reading Archie Comics, they were an integral part of my childhood.

I know that none of this is cannon, and I like the horror genre so I would go into this knowing that this is essentially fan made. ugh This was so cheesy and I don't think it was even on purpose. Each character felt like a caricature of the person they were supposed to be. It was almost like the author was given a prompt, that said "spoiled rich girl with daddy issues" and that was meant to be Ronnie (she never went by "V.") It was the same for everyone else. Where was Jughead? I know this was book two, and maybe Jughead was in the first, but he's a main character in the comics...I don't know. The writing wasn't that good either. Also, the "feminism" twist felt so so forced...Idk. The only redeeming factor of this book was Cheryl and Veronicas dynamic. Nothing about this was inherently problematic, and it was readable so two stars. If the author somehow finds this, the bulk of my opinion is based in the fact that this is the Archie universe and I'm very protective of that- nothing against you.

    Archie Horror is slowly becoming my new obsession, and I am not ashamed in the slightest. After reading "A Werewolf in Riverdale" by Caleb Roehrig, I knew I needed more horror tales from the town of Riverdale, and thankfully Author Rebecca Barrow's "Interview With The Vixen" was right there waiting for me. Veronica Lodge, one of the two girls perpetually vying for Archie's affections, has her life turned completely upside down when she is turned into a vampire against her will.

Veronica Lodge, one of the two girls perpetually vying for Archie's affections, has her life turned completely upside down when she is turned into a vampire against her will. Determined to get her life back, Veronica sets out to kill the one who turned her. Along with her friends, she finds herself fighting thr forces of darkness that had been hiding in Riverdale for centuries. Clever, action-packed, and appropriately humorous, Interview With The Vixen was a fantastic read. I had an absolute blast seeing familiar characters fight to survive in this strange new reality they find themselves in. My biggest hope now, having read both Archie Horror novels, is that they do "Jughead The Hunger vs. Vampironica" in novel form. Nothing would make me happier than that! Five out of Five Stars!

    SUCH A FUN BOOK!!! Ahhh, it had Buffy the Vampire Slayer vibes and I just loved how campy and energetic and fast-paced the book was. I listened to the audiobook and have decided Frankie Corzo is my favorite narrator of all time. Highly recommend especially if you're looking for a low-stakes, action-packed spooky book. It's not scary at all, but is perfect for October. I also enjoyed reading this and visualizing the actors from Riverdale :) SUCH A FUN BOOK!!!

    I really loved this book overall the one hiccup for me is the fact that it isn't in the same universe as "A Werewolf In Riverdale." Which I can't hold against it so FIVE STARS. I sincerely hope they continue with not only Veronica's storyline from this but I would love more supernatural Archie.

    I’m only vaguely familiar with the comics and have only seen a handful of Riverdale episodes, so I worried my lack of knowledge would cause confusion, but it didn’t because this book was such a blast to read. It’s fun horror with smart humor and loads of female empowerment.

    This is a fun way to escape. I really enjoy vampire stories and having this set in Riverdale is neat. My only complaint... I missed Jughead. Not sure why they chose to keep him out of this story.
