Thanks to its unique combination of human and vampire residents, Morganville, Texas, is a small college town with big-time problems. When student Claire Danvers gets the chance to experience life on the outside, she takes it. But Morganville isn’t the only town with vampire trouble...
Claire never thought she’d leave Morganville, but when she gets accepted into the graduate program at MIT, she can’t pass up the opportunity. Saying good-bye to her friends is bittersweet, especially since things are still raw and unsettled between Claire and her boyfriend, Shane.
Her new life at MIT is scary and exciting, but Morganville is never really far from Claire’s mind. Enrolled in a special advanced study program with Professor Irene Anderson, a former Morganville native, Claire is able to work on her machine, which is designed to cancel the mental abilities of vampires.
But when she begins testing her machine on live subjects, things quickly spiral out of control, and Claire starts to wonder whether leaving Morganville was the last mistake she’ll ever make...

I wanted to read this because I am addicted to Morganville, and I am flying towards the end of the series and can't stop.
This book was hard for me because Claire is leaving behind all of the characters that I have come to adore or at least know what to expect from.
It was hard for Claire to be away from Shane and I missed their easy and hot way they are together, but I definitely respect that his lack of trust in her with Michael last book certainly can't get off with a simple apology.
Her motives for going are good as well. She wants to establish herself as an independent young woman and fulfill her dream of MIT. She plans to go back to Morganville but she wants life experience outside of town as well.
The action was great as usual, and kept me flipping the pages and never wanting to stop. There were plot twists that really made me gasp or just sit slack jawed for a few minutes. Though somehow, everything got back to the semblance of normal that Claire has.
The ending was good, and it is what the books have been building up to. With the next being the last book, of course the events that went down were big and the culmination of the themes of the series. I can't wait to have a spot to keep reading.
My question to you, my lovely readers:
Do/did you have a dream school?
