Official Description: This is book #7 of the Morganville Vampire series
Without the evil vampire Bishop ruling over the town of Morganville, the resident vampires have made major concessions to the human population. With their newfound freedoms, Claire Danvers and her friends are almost starting to feel comfortable again…
Now Claire can actually concentrate on her studies, and her friend Eve joins the local theatre company. But when one of Eve’s castmates goes missing after starting work on a short documentary, Eve suspects the worst. Claire and Eve soon realize that this film project, whose subject is the vampires themselves, is a whole lot bigger—and way more dangerous—than anyone suspected.
So where to go from here? That’s probably what was on the mind of Ms. Caine when she wrote this never-ending book series, and it’s not a bad series, but this book was rather meh and I’m getting tired of some of the characters. Mostly I’m getting tired of Shane *gasp* blasphemy I know, I just think there are more exciting things out there and Claire has just tasted love…so let’s move on. I guess that wouldn’t make an exciting young adult series. Them breaking up and moving on with awkwardness, but there are plenty of awkward moments in this book. Don’t get me wrong I was entertained. I was also bored and ready to get on with it. The danger and stuff going on just didn’t feel as dangerous as the previous books. The excitement wasn’t there, and yeah some things do get resolved but this felt like a bit of fluff to me. My favorite character hands down in Myrnin. I want to see more of Myrnin and I still want him and Claire to have a thing…I know but it’s just I like him better than Shane. Also I think I’m warming up to Oliver, I think we’re going to see more to him in the future…perhaps…who knows. I hope the next book holds a little more excitement, a little more depth. I don’t need anymore fluff in my stories. Also I’m reading for things to be shaken up.
“IF YOU CAN READ THIS, THANK A TEACHER.”
