Claire Danvers's college town may be run by vampires but a truce between the living and the dead made things relatively safe. For a while.

Caution: No spoilers for this book but prb some from the first 2.
I wanted to read this one because I have enjoyed the Morganville Vampire series until now, and I had a bit of break in review
Shane is very moody in this one. I understand he's hurt by Micheal's choices but he took it out on everyone.
There are lots of surprises for Claire to especially with Monica and her change in behavior. .. it was suspicious in some ways and not in others.
The romance is heating up this one a bit. I adored how Eve and Michael were together it was cute. Then there are just enough steamy moments without Shane crossing the line and had me kinda cursing his restraint, although I understand because of the minor thing.
It was a pleasure to meet Myrnin he was so smart it kind of blew my mind and Clare's. He was sick and he's old and he's trying to find a way to cure the vampires and himself from the madness. He is like an old man with dementia though, except he is one with fangs, and Claire can one minute be a friend and another be a tempting and tasty snack that he can barely restrain himself from. But he is so eccentric and passionate, and yes, okay, pity worthy how he changes without control.
This one as usual left us at a place where I didn't really want to stop reading, but since these aren't review books, I knew that I had to put them to the side for now. But I can't wait for the next one to see what will unfold as a result of this books' events and ending.
Bottom Line: Great addition to an addictive series.

Cat Conrad, live in Texas with their iguanas, Popeye and Darwin; a mali uromastyx named (appropriately) O’Malley; and a leopard tortoise named Shelley (for the poet, of course).
