Morganville Vampires Series # 11
10hrs and 46mins


With her boss preoccupied researching the Founder Houses in Morganville, student Claire Danvers is left to her own devices when she learns that three vampires have vanished without a trace. She soon discovers that the last person seen with one of the missing vampires is someone new to town – a mysterious individual named Magnus. After an uneasy encounter with Morganville’s latest resident, Claire is certain Magnus isn’t merely human. But is he a vampire – or something else entirely?


My Thoughts


Fantastic new addition! This book just rocked from beginning to end. This series keeps getting better and better.

The phrase” just when I thought I was out….. They pull me back in”” has never been more appropriate with events that barely let come out forbreath -before they drag back in.

I’ll start by stating “I’m colossal fan of this series”, and my fondness grows with every addition, and certainly more so after this novel.

Things are creepy, dark and intoxicating as they always are Morganville. Just when I think Ms. Caine can’t possible exceed the excitement and suspense from the previous books; she brilliantly takes us on a ride that is uphill with emotion and downhill with action. She gives you just a few seconds to catch your breath before she does it all again.

A mysterious being has arrived in Morganville, and whatever he is, one thing’s for sure, he’s powerful, creepy and as badass as they come, it even has the vampires running for cover. You know the situation is dire when we get a chance to get in Emily’s head and experience her anguish and fear, and almost resignation to the fact that everything could be over-Morganville-no more.

In haste and panic, Emily makes some chilling decisions concerning our friends that will have your heart racing.

Our poor Myrnin (my favorite) is put in a situation where he has to do something  awful that he doesn’t want to do, but when order by Emily and is put on a trance he can no longer refuse.

This time Shane’s head is  a much better place than it was in the last book. For the first time, he has won my heart.  I always thought he was  immature, and  not a real good match for my darling Claire, but I’m starting to change my mind. A heart breaking moment, will have yours braking too, right along Shane’s side.

If you love Myrnin already, you are going to adore him after this entry; he comes through in a big way.

And if it wasn’t enough get also get Eve and Michael’s point the view  while we see them struggle with their plans for the future- which are being equally rejected by humans and vampires.
And Claire! oh Claire! she is big trouble this time, it will take all her friends to get her out of this one.

For the first time in the series we are left on a mini cliffhanger that makes you scream “Give us the next book now”

This is the most emotional and romantic novel in the series, but by all means, it’s still charged with the same exhilaration we have come to expect from this series.

Ultimately, this series hasn’t lost any steam, in fact, despite being the 11th entry; this might just be my favorite in the series.

Do you self a massive favor and jump in this phenomenal ride with the first book in the series, GLASS HOUSSES.

The Author

Rachel Caine



Cynthia Holloway captures Claire’s voice with perfection, young in years but without missing her admirable maturity. She also does an excellent job with the remaining cast, she never puts in doubt their unique personalities; Eve’s sense of humor, carefree and at times, carless attitude is never missed, Shane’s difficult and sometimes contrary manner is clearly conveyed and of course, Michael’s coolness is never over look.

Oh! And my dear Myrnin is portrayed in a way that undoubtedly suggests the perfect combination of brilliance and madness.

With the perfect tempo, she accurately  brings these novels to life with all the angst, tension, suspense and emotion.

I read the first book, Glass Houses, when I discovered the next book on audio I’ve never looked back.
