The Ninth Key is about Susannah Simon (Suze), a mediator, as well as a high school sophomore who deals with standard teenage problems. She has lived in California for nearly two weeks and she is already having a great time with her new school, friends, and stepbrothers.
When Suze was trying to sleep a ghost of a dead woman woke her up, screaming and begging Suze to tell "Red" that he isn't responsible for her death. As Suze inquired "Red", she realized that he is the father of Tad Beaumont, the cutest and richest boy in school. Suze's father and Jesse both tell her that "Red" is a vampire and to not mess with Red Beaumont, but young Suze does not listen. As she searches for more information about "Red", someone knows what Suze is trying to do.
One of my favorite scenes was the scene when the whole family was having a conversation during dinner about Dopey and his relation with Debbie Mancuso. My favorite character in this book is Doc, Suze's youngest and smartest stepbrother. Doc has an interesting personality; he is a character who is ingenuous, innocent and naive.
This book was very interesting. Although the first book was more interesting, I still enjoyed it.
