Rating: 4/5

From Goodreads: 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. Now people are turning up dead, a psycho is stalking her, and an ancient bloodsucker has proposed private mentoring. To what end, Claire will find out. And it's giving night school a whole new meaning.

Wow...Rachel Caine does it again.  Even with all the vampire books out their The Morganville Vampires stand out as some of the scariest and deadliest out there. 

This is a fast paced, page turning, heart pounding novel that will keep you on the edge of your seat, all packed in with outstanding relationships between the characters.  Some of my favorite characters such as Sam, Michael, Shane, Eve and Amelie all return as well as some of the characters I'm not to fond of.  We meet a new character Myrnin, who is the deadliest of them all, but definitly has a mind like no other.  I'd love to study under him (well as long as he is caged and I have many, many body guards with very sharp stakes).

Claire sometimes annoys me with her decisions though.  I have to constantly remind myself that she is only sixteen and not an adult yet even though she is taking college classes.  I feel that she often acts emotionally without examining all of her choices and seeing which one is the best.   

This is a great addition to an already outstanding series.  If you haven't started this series yet add it to the TBR pile.


  1. adding it to the TBR :) I've been meaning to start this series for a while :)

  2. I need to start this series, it sounds good. Don't worry I'll add it to my TBR! Thanks for the review!

  3. I have yet to start this series. Your review makes me want to do it now! Yep, I have wishlisted them all! :)

  4. Gah1 I have yet to read any of the Morganville Vampires books yet, but I like this review because it makes me excited to give them a go. I've read a lot of mixed reviews on the series. seems like most people either love them or hate them.

    Guess I have to find out for myself.


I love love love hearing your wonderful thoughts! Thanks for stopping by and happy reading.
