Morganville Vampires Series

I have found another amazing new teens series about vampires by Rachel Caine. I went to Rachel Caine’s website to find out more about the Morganville Vampires series and found out that there are 5 books in the series with the 6th book coming out in June of this year. I read the sample chapter of the first book in the series, Glass House, since there weren’t any blurbs and it seemed it would be a good idea to get a feel for what I was going to read before I buy the series. I was instantly hooked after reading the first chapter of the book even though there were a few grammar errors in the chapter posted on the website. I found out that I can reserve a copy of the books through Barnes and Nobles website at my local BN and I was lucky enough when they e-mailed me that they had all 5 books there and I could pick it up the next day.

Rachel Caine’s Morganville Vampire series has really hooked me and has me flipping the pages so fast I almost a couple of paper cuts. Claire is my favorite character but I also love reading about her boyfriend Shane and her friends Eve and Michael. In the college town of Morganville, vampires and humans have coexisted in, a somewhat relatively, bloodless harmony…until the arrival of Bishop, a master vampire who threatens to put the evil back in evil undead and smash the fragile peace that Ameila the founder of Morganville has worked to build. But Bishop isn’t the only threat because there are violent black clouds that promise a storm of devastating proportions to hit Morganville in a matter of hours. As student Claire Danvers and her friends prepare to defend Morganville against the elements—both natural and unnatural—the unexpected happens…Morganville’s vampires begin to vanish one by one. Discovering why leads Claire to one last choice that she really doesn’t want to make because it is either swear allegiance to Bishop…or die.
WOW! That is the first word that popped into my head after reading the last sentence in the book and it really describes this book so well in my opinion. This book has really taken the cake I tell you because it has so much suspense, intense action, scary scenes as well as some heated up moments between Claire and Shane. There is so much stuff going on in the book that I really had a hard time butting this book down to even go to the bathroom at times. I think Rachel Caine has really done great in writing this series and she just keeps making them better and better with each new book. Well Claire has really had to make some very tough decisions in this novel because her parents have moved to Morganville in the last book and now that Bishop has taken over the town things are not looking so well for vamps and humans alike. Like I said Claire and Shane’s relationship is really heating up and they have finally said that they love each other out loud even though it took such horrible things to happen to really make them see it. I also really think that Eve and Michael’s relationship is going to go through some really rough patches since there is the evil Bishop now in control of the town. I can’t wait for the next book in the series called Carpe Corpus, which comes out Tuesday, June 2nd and I really want it to be June already because Rachel Caine has left us another cliffhanger ending with a teaser look at the next book. I give this book 4 Open Books:

LORD OF MISRULE $ 6.99 (Book 5)(244 Pages)

MORGANVILLE, TEXAS, JUST SOUTH OF NORMAL.
In the college town of Morganville, vampires and humans have coexisted in (relatively) bloodless harmony…until the arrival of Bishop, a master vampire who threatens to put the evil back in evil undead and smash the fragile peace. But Bishop isn’t the only threat….

Violent black clouds promise a storm of devastating proportions. As student Claire Danvers and her friends prepare to defend Morganville against the elements—both natural and unnatural—the unexpected happens: Morganville’s vampires begin to vanish one by one. Discovering why leads Claire to one last choice: Swear allegiance to Bishop…or die.

When I read the blurb on the back of the book that quote that I have written below really had me laughing. “FORGET WHAT HAPPENS TO THE KID WITH THE SCAR AND GLASSES: I WANT TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS NEXT IN MORGANVILLE.” —THE ETERNAL NIGHT. I can really agree with that quote because I have totally come to love this series more that the Harry Potter books. I have so enjoyed reading the first three books in this wonderfully entertaining series and now we get more into the lives of Claire and her friends. Now in the college town of Morganville, vampires and humans have learned to live in relative peace but still, students like Claire Danvers know that after dark, studying can take a back-seat to staying alive. But the tenuous good-neighbor policy is really turned on its head with the arrival of Mr. Bishop the bad to the bone and ancient old-school vampire cares nothing about harmony. So staying at the top of the food chain is enough trouble for Claire and her friends, Shane, Michael and Eve. What he wants from the town’s living and dead is unthinkably sinister and it’s only at a formal ball attended by vampires and their human dates that Claire realizes Bishop’s plan—and the elaborately evil trap he’s set for the warm-blooded souls of Morganville.
Claire is a 16-year-old genius who has gotten into college early and since the first book she has really grown up fast because living in Morganville she had to grow up or not survive to live another day. I can’t imagine what it would be like to be in Claire’s place even though it is fiction. I think that Claire is one brave young woman who is going through so much just because her parents thought that she was too young to go away to college. But I don’t think Claire regrets coming to Morganville because she has met her best friend Eve and Michael along with her boyfriend Shane. I see that Shane is a young man who has a lot of issues that may really come in between his intensifying new relationship with Claire and I hope to see that it will end happily for both of them. I also really enjoyed that Michael and Eve’s relationship is still standing though there is a couple of issues that are really coming between them more in this book. This book has really kicked up a notch the Morganville Vampires series because the new bad guy Mr. Bishop is TOTALLY EVIL! I really couldn’t not believe that Rachel Caine ending with another cliffhanger that would have had me pulling my hair out if I didn’t already have the next book in the series to devour next. I give this book 4 Open Books:

FEAST OF FOOLS $ 6.99 (Book 4)(242 Pages)

After reading the first two books, Glass House and The Dead Girls’ Dance, I was really looking forward to reading the third book Midnight Alley because in the previous book it really left me wanted more. So when Claire Danvers learned that her college town was run by vampires, she did what any intelligent, self-preserving freshman would do in her situation. She applied for a transfer and stocked up on garlic with other vampire repellents that she could find. But the transfer is no longer an option because Claire is in too deep but that garlic and other vamp repellents may come in handy. Now Claire has pledged herself to the founder of Morganville named Amelie, the most powerful vampire in town but the protection her contract secures does little to reassure those closest to Claire. Then all of a sudden, people are turning up dead, there is a stalker who resurfaces from the past, and an ancient bloodsucker has extended a chilling invitation for private lessons in his secluded home. To what end, Claire will soon discover—and it will give a terrifying new meaning to night school because she may very well not be leaving this lesson alive.
Each book just makes me want more and I have to say that Claire has really changed so much since I read the first book. It has been so much fun finding out more about Claire’s new friends Shane, Michael and Eve because in such a short time they have been getting really close with one another. They have developed a loyal relationship that I think is going to have some bumps in the future roads they travel if they haven’t taken separate roads along the way. This book has some very thrilling and suspenseful action going on that I really liked because it sure did keep me on my toes. Claire’s relationship with Shane has sure heated up a bit since the last book because they are now more in love with each other after going through so much though they haven’t said it out loud to each other. I also think that Michael and Eve’s budding relationship has finally come out and I’m glad to finally read it because they have had a sparking sexual attraction that I saw from the second book. When I finished this novel I was really looking forward to getting more from the second novel because Rachel Caine does it again and leaves the book with a cliffhanger. I give this book 4 Open Books:

MIDNIGHT ALLEY $ 6.99 (Book 3)(245 Pages)

MORGANVILLE IS SUCH A NICE PLACE TO LIVE…
When Claire Danvers learned that her college town was run by vampires, she did what any intelligent, self-preserving freshman would do: She applied for a transfer and stocked up on garlic. The transfer is no longer an option, but that garlic may come in handy.
…AND DIE, IF YOU DON’T MIND THAT SORT OF THING.
Now Claire has pledged herself to Amelie, the most powerful vampire in town. The protection her contract secures does little reassure those closest to Claire. All of a sudden, people are turning up dead, a stalker resurfaces from the past, and an ancient bloodsucker extends a chilling invitation for private lessons in his secluded home.

After practically devouring the first book, Glass House, was excited to get started on reading the second book, The Dead Girls’ Dance, to find out more about Claire and her three friends. Claire Danvers has her share of challenges because being a genius in a school that favors beauty over brains has been tough on top of having to deal with the homicidal girls in her dorm, and above all, finding out that her college town is overrun with vampires. But on the up side, she has a great roommate named Michael, who tends to disappear at sunup, and a new boyfriend named Shane…whose vampire-hunting dad has called in backup. They are cycle punks who like the idea of killing just about anything including humans who have any connections with the vampires they so hate. Now there is a fraternity throwing its annual Dead Girls’ Dance and to Claire’s surprise she and her equally outcast best friend, Eve, have been invited though it seems kind of suspicious. When they finally find out why they were invited, all hell is going to break loose because this time both the living and the dead are coming out—and everybody’s hungry for blood.
This series just keeps getting better and better because the action and suspense just gets kicked up a notch higher to make me want more. Claire is such an intriguing character because I really never know what she is going to do next though she seems like a goody-goody genius she has so much more potential that not everyone sees. I also really think her new developing relationship with Sean is going to really turn into something that might really last but there are definitely going to be many bumps on their road to making it work. Getting to know more about Michael was really fun because I definitely didn’t see him being a ghost instead of a vamp coming and I really think that Claire’s relationship with both Michael and Eve is a wonderful thing for her now that she knows more about the town she’s living in. By the time I finished this book I was so captivated with Claire’s life in Morganville I immediately picked up the next book because for some reason Rachel Caine loves to end the book in cliffhangers that make you crazy to get your hands on the next book. I give this book 4 Open Books:

THE DEAD GIRLS DANCE $ 6.99 (Book 2)(248 Pages)

GOOD NEWS, GIRLS: YOUR DATES ARE HERE!

Claire Danvers has her share of challenges—like being a genius in a school that favors beauty over brains, dealing with the homicidal girls in her dorm, and above all, finding out that her college town is overrun with vampires. On the up side, she has a great roommate (who tends to disappear at sunup) and a new boyfriend named Shane…whose vampire-hunting dad has called in backup: cycle punks who like the idea of killing just about anything.
BAD NEWS, GIRLS: THEY’RE DEAD.
Now a fraternity is throwing its annual Dead Girls’ Dance and—surprise!—Claire and her equally outcast best friend, Eve, have been invited. When they find out why, all hell is going to break loose. Because this time both the living and the dead are coming out—and everybody’s hungry for blood.

I have found another amazing new teens series about vampires by Rachel Caine which I have found is a genre that a lot of young adult authors have really taken control over. I went to Rachel Caine’s website to find out more about the Morganville Vampires series and found out that there are 5 books in the series with the 6th book coming out in June of this year. I read the sample chapter of the first book in the series, Glass House, since there weren’t any blurbs and it seemed it would be a good idea to get a feel for what I was going to read before I buy the series. I was instantly hooked after reading the first chapter of the book even though there were a few grammar errors in the chapter posted on the website. I found out that I can reserve a copy of the books through Barnes and Nobles website at my local BN and I was lucky enough when they e-mailed me that they had all 5 books there and I could pick it up the next day. I was reading Veronica Wolff’s Sword of the Highlands at the time but as soon as I finished that novel I immediately snapped up my copy of Glass House and instantly devoured it in less than a day.
The novel is set in a small college town with some quirky characters during the day but when the sun goes down, the bad comes out and you better watch your neck because you might find a vampire bitting it if you’re not careful. Claire Danvers has had enough of her nightmarish dorm situation after having been thrown down a flight of stairs and be threaten with death by the evil popular girls living at her dorm. The popular girls, with Monica Morrell as the leader, never let her forget just where she ranks on the school’s social scene: somewhere 100 times below zero. And Claire really doesn’t have the right connections—to the undead who run the town so she has to find a way to deal with her situation or end up just one of the many college students who suddenly disappear. When Claire heads off campus in search of find a room anywhere outside the dorms, the imposing old house where she finds a room may not be much better. Her new roommates don’t show many signs of life but that all changes because they’ll have Claire’s back when the town’s deepest secrets come crawling out, hungry for fresh blood.
I found this novel very interesting and I had a fun time reading it because it is such a difference from all the other teen vampire series out their nowadays. I really fell in love with Claire because even though I have nothing in common with her I think she is such a real and complex character that has some very appealing qualities for a protaganist of a series. It was so horrible all the things that Claire went through in this novel but it just made the start of this series so much better at keeping me interested enough to want to continue reading more. I thought the characters Shane, Eve and Michael who give Claire a room in their place were intriguing characters that I can see are going to be loyal and true friends even in the most tough and dangerous situations. Rachel Caine delivers a refreshingly exciting vampire series that will hook you from start to finish and will keep you wanting more and more. After devouring this novel I immediately grabbed the second book in the series because like I said I wanted to read more about Claire and her new friends. I give the book 3.5 Open Books:

The popular girls never let her forget just where she ranks on the school’s social scene: somewhere less than zero. And Claire really doesn’t have the right connections—to the undead who run the town. When Claire heads off campus, the imposing old house where she finds a room may not be much better. Her new roommates don’t show many signs of life. But they’ll have Claire’s back when the town’s deepest secrets come crawling out, hungry for fresh blood….

I'm a part-time aspiring romance novelist, book reviewer and blogger. I've always wanted to travel the world and learn everything I can about other countries. Learning the Italian language is one way of trying to make that dream come true. Traveling will help me with my writing because I'll be learning about the history of the U.S., Latin America, England, Italy, and Ireland, the countries I find so fascinating while reading the romance genre. I read and review romance novels of almost every subgenre along with erotic romance, mystery, sci-fi/fantasy and young adult novels. You can find the reviews at my blogs, Talk About My Favorite Authors and Phoebe Jordan's Reviews. I’ve also started a live podcast show called TAMFA | Phoebe Jordan hosted on Blog Talk Radio. This show is dedicated to everything I love about romance and young adult novels. I love having romance and young adult authors live on my show to be interviewed and showcase their books. I plan to write contemporary romance, romantic suspense, erotic romance, paranormal romance and young adult when I get my writing career started with help from Keta. I'm not sure what genre I'll write to begin with since I love to read so many different romance genres.
