Book Blurb

For years, the human and vampire residents of Morganville, Texas, have managed to co-exist in peace. But now that the threat to the vampires has been defeated, the human residents are learning that the gravest danger they face is the enemy within…

Thanks to the eradication of the parasitic creatures known as the draug, the vampires of Morganville have been freed of their usual constraints. With the vampires indulging their every whim, the town’s human population is determined to hold on to their lives by taking up arms. But college student Claire Danvers isn’t about to take sides, considering she has ties to both the humans and the vampires.  

To make matters worse, a television show comes to Morganville looking for ghosts, just as vampire and human politics collide. Now, Claire and her friends have to figure out how to keep the peace without ending up on the nightly news… or worse.


Even though I did like this book, I still can't bring myself to give it the 4 stars. 

Caine started introducing different POVs in her recent Morganville books and I actually enjoyed reading the different ones, especially in this one, where we get to read Myrnin's POV (I love Myrnin! xD). 

My problem was that all the POVs were in first person except Claire's. And that just basically ruined it for me, cause I felt detached the whole time I was reading it. Almost like it wasn't the Claire that we all love. 

In the previous books there has always been so much action, pain, betrayal, but ultimately the love that all 4 of them shared after everything they went through was what really did it for me. But by the end of this one there wasn't much of that left. 

Actually, most of the book was damn depressing, and that ending, ugh. So sad, not in a bad way, but not exactly good either. The whole thing just felt broken.

And what's going to happen now after that ending?


  1. Rachel Caine is a first-class storyteller who can deal out amazing plot twists as though she was dealing cards.
