    Gripping Series!

    I began reading The Morganville Vampire series after reading things like The Vampire Academy and The House of Night Series. I found The Morganville Vampire series to be a nice change from the other series as the vampires are actually bad (what a concept), sunlight can hurt them, and the heroine doesn't fall in love with a vampire (another awesome concept!) There are a few vampires in this series that are good--and even some that don't like what they are, but for the most part the vampires are still blood suckers and not to be trusted.

    Overall the concept of The Morganville Vampires is that vampires rule over a sleepy college town in Texas like the Sicilian mafia used to rule over parts of New York and New Jersey (and maybe still do.) Families "pay" for protection, which comes mostly in the form of blood donations. This protection means that they won't be accosted by a vampire on the street--however there are no guarantees on that. People are very discouraged from going out after dark. Strangely enough, most students stay on campus and are oblivious to the vampires. Claire Danvers, however, learns more than she ever wanted to know about it when she moves off campus and moves into the Glass House.

    This particular novel picks up where book 4 left off--I'll skip over the plot so as not to give any spoilers, and leaves you guessing until the very end. Then, it makes you want to immediately pick up book number 6. Really I think that book 4, 5, and 6 could have all been one novel--but then Penquin Group wouldn't be selling as many books for Rachel Caine, would they? My only two complaints about the book are that it wasn't longer and that it seemed stuck in the middle of the other two stories. It only took me two days to read it, and fortunately I had book 6 handy. This novel is one of the few of the series that doesn't end in a wrapped-up sort of way. If you get to the end of this book and don't have the 6th book waiting, you'll be a bit frustrated with the author.

    Over-all, I very much enjoyed books 1-6 of this series and I hope that when I read the 7th book, that Rachel Caine has found a new exciting way to continue with the story.

    Move over Twilight. I love the Morganville Vampire series, and I can not wait until a new one comes out. For a very easy read and for all of the vampire lovers out there, this series is definitely one that you will truly enjoy.

    The 5th in the series has Claire, Michael, Eve and Shane along with everyone else to stop Bishop.

    Claire along with Amelie and a group of vampires sets out to rescue one of their own while preparing to stop Bishop and his band of followers. This leads the vampires and humans setting aside their differences and working together. It's a suspenseful yet fast paced tale in the Morganville series that will have you wanting to read the next book right away. The ending surprised me a little. Overall a great addition to the series.

    A tough edge of your seat ride through Morganville

    This one was the toughest to get through only because for so many chapters everything seemed hopeless. I don't want to get into details or ruin it for anyone who hasn't read this yet but if you like vamps and edge of your seat drama unexpected turns every chapter than it is a definite must read. I hope all Myrnin's crazy is leading to something.

    Unpredictable!

    With every book that I read from this series I become even more enthralled! I love this series. Lord of Misrule, in my opinion, is probably the best so far! It wasn't as predictable as I found the previous ones to be...hold on to your seats.

    Morganville Vampire Series

    This is a very entertaining series. The ONLY complaint I have is that there are some editing issues from book 1 to book 5 - the author seems to have fogotten some of her characters' physical descriptions - because they change drastically! Other than that this series is very fun to read, I can't wait for the next book.
