“Claire Danvers has had her share of challenges – like being a genius in a school that favours beauty over brains, dealing with the homicidal girls in her dorm and, above all, finding out that her college town is overrun with blood sucking fiends.
On the plus side, so far Claire and her friends have managed to survive getting on the wrong side of some Morganville VIPs… Vampire Important Persons. But their temporary peace is in danger of collapsing, thanks to the arrival of her new boyfriend’s scary father and his vampire-fighting supporters.”
This is the second book in The Morganville Vampires series. The previous book had ended on a huge cliffhanger and this book picked straight up where the other had left off, with Claire and her friends being in a sticky situation that I just couldn’t see them getting out of!
This book explained all about Shane’s past and told us the reason why his father had such a grudge against the vampires, it also revealed a gruesome fact about Michael which made me feel even more sorry for him.
Claire was a lot more confident this time around, this was great for the reader but not so great for her because it meant that she ended up in even more dangerous situations. The story was full of danger and throughout the book she seemed to go from one disaster to the next, all of which had me on the edge of my seat in suspense.
When Shane found himself in a life threatening situation everyone else rallied round to try to save him, this resulted in many more worrying moments for them all, including an evil party and a surprising turn of events which saw Monica (the bad girl from book one) relying on Claire for help! I have to admit that I did quite enjoy that part.
The introduction of Sam (a vampire) was very interesting because it showed that not all the vampires in this story were bad and it also gave a little insight into the mysterious world of the founding vampire Amelie. I’m hoping to see more of him in the books to come.
A fantastic twist later on in the story saw Michael changing his role in the house and I’m excited to see what the future holds for him.
Another one day read that was captivating and exciting, already I’m completely enthralled by this series.
