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. (From Goodreads)
I am a huge fan of this series, but I'm starting to worry that Rachel Caine has hit the limit for this series at book 13.
A lot happened, but it felt like nothing. I don't understand the significance of half of the events here, and it really started to drag. I was only into the story for about the last 60 pages, when shit finally hits the fan.
This once awesome, action-packed series has started to turn into a lot of the same ol' thing over and over. I'm hoping that the events of the last few pages will be enough to revitalize the story for book 14, Fall of Night, due out in May, 2013.
Much love, Samantha
