    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 schedule.

     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.

My question to you, my lovely readers:
Would you chose being tied to a house with only physical form at night or chose being a vampire, forced to live off the blood from others?


  1. Shane was such a frustrating character sometimes! Oh that boy has a temper!

  2. I loved this series! Every book is an insane ride! I glad you're enjoying them.

  3. Oh it's nice to see it's still good!

  4. This is my absolute favorite series about vampires. I'm happy you're enjoying it, too.

  5. How had I not heard about this series before? I have to admit that I haven't read anything even remotely close to vampires In a long time but i'm loving the sounds of this one! Now i'm thinking I may have caught the Morganville Vampires fever....

  6. Ha yeah, the Shane comment, it'll be worth the wait. ;) To be honest, as bad as it sounds, I'd rather be a vampire.

  7. I still need to try this series. I'm glad you enjoyed it and so that makes me want to read them even more.

  8. I think one thing I liked about this series was that the bad people aren't always the bad people or they have to deal with the lesser of two evils at times. I'm glad you're still enjoying!

  9. I know, so many shades of gray. Have you finished series?

  10. Honestly the covers have scared me off, but glad I gave a chance

  11. I think I would be too, I am reclusive but that would be too much

  12. Yes, yes, I am def burning up with the MV fever

  13. Yes, I hate having to put them down or read a review book

  14. Yes, that makes him all sexier to me, because usually it is because he is protecting someone he loves

  15. Its great that you're getting acquainted with the "greats". I too am planning on reading Darynda Jones, Morganville has too many books out already LOL

  16. I like that you've been breaking the reviewing slump with this series and that you've been able to keep enjoying it. I am still not sure if I will pick it up but the characters do sound interesting, even when they're moody.

  17. Erg, probably the first one with physical form only at night. 0.0 I probably wouldn't mind that anyone since I luuuurve nighttime. And I also enjoy hiding from people. ;-)

    I haven't read this series yet, but so glad it's addictive and awesome!

    Thanks for stopping by @ Paper Fury!

  18. Glad to see you are still enjoying this series and the developing relationships with the characters. There is plenty to keep you hooked! I really need to read this one myself!!
