With its eclectic mix of vampire and human citizens, Morganville, Texas, has always been a risky place to call home. But with the invasion of the vampire’s deadliest enemy, Morganville isn’t just in danger—it’s dying…

Ever since the draug—mysterious creatures that prey on vampires—took over Morganville, the lives of student Claire Danvers and her friends have been thrown into turmoil. Most of the town’s residents have evacuated, but Claire, Shane, Eve and Michael have chosen to stay and fight.Using the city’s water system to spread, the draug have rapidly multiplied. Things in Morganville look grim, especially since vampire Amelie—the town founder—has been infected by the master draug’s bite.

Now, if Claire and her friends don’t figure out how to cure Amelie and defeat the draug, it looks like Morganville will become little more than a ghost town…

BOOK REVIEW by Michelle : 


We’re in Morganville.
Nothing’s ever going to be perfect. 



When I think Rachel can’t go up another notch in this series, BAM! she does it again. 

So many wonderful , exciting, nail biting, a bit traumatic , scenes in this book. 

Truly this series, just keeps out shining its last book in the series. I am sitting on my hands so I don’t bit my nails anymore waiting for Bitter Blood to crack open. 

Claire is in top ‘I can save the town’ form, goes a bit Macgyver and pulls a ‘don’t mess ( polite) with me’, in a BIG WAY. 

Poor Shane, brilliant scene with him and the after effects, the vulnerability of his character had me wanting to hug the boy. 

Visualising Shane and a Flamethrower...well...move over Rambo. 

Michael and Eve, a little bridge is gapped, but it probably had to be addressed. 

Myrnin! Myrnin! Myrnin!!! You mad, crazy, loveable, crazy, insane, crazy, guy...*shakes head at his plan* 

Oliver and Amelie...OMG!!! Bitter Blood, it will probably rock my socks off when it comes to these two. Oh, dear... 

Theo, the quiet little doctor... ooooo I would not want to mess with the quiet ones. I think Theo has some super secret , the unassuming Doc has some serious ...errr... fluffy dice ( putting it politely) . I think I would watch my mouth around Theo. I think the good Doc is not to be messed with. 

Lobotomy anyone? 

This book just kept my heart pounding and pretty much had me squealing into the pages with the intense, ‘OMG is everybody gonna make it’... eeeeeeeee... feeling. 

Everybody had to take of their kiddie pants and pull on the big serious adult pants in this installment, cause things are going to be a changing, me thinks!!! 

Oh dear, this is gonna get crazier than crazy, little ol’ Morganville J


FAVE QUOTES: 

Shane shrugged, marked through it, and wrote ( in smaller letters, since the paper was running out) , BIG EFFING TRUCK. 

Theo circled the word EFFING and raised his eyebrows. Claire made a frustrated noise in her throat, grabbed the pencil , and marked it out. 

Ah, Theo mouthed, and smiled. Good. 



‘Wow,’ Shane said. ‘You really know how to drum up team spirit. Did you print up Team Total Fail jerseys, too?’ 



‘Shane’s in trouble,’ Claire said, ‘and I swear to God that if you don’t help me, I’ll break your finger off and use the bone to pick the lock.’ 

Jason stopped laughing and gave her a long, odd look. ‘You’re kind of serious,’ he said. ‘Huh. That’s dark, for you.’ 



‘If she puts a foot wrong, I am seriously considering playing Shank the Skank,’ she said. 



It was easy to love somebody when love was happy, but when it was hard, when it meant facing things you feared... that was different. 



‘Ay-firmative,’ Eve said, and tried for a smile. ‘Sorry. An Aliens reference always makes me feel better at times like this. Except I’m not sure I’m the one who lives through the movie.’ 



Myrnin hesitated, then ... grabbed at Claire. He was fumbling at her, and she was so stunned that she started hitting him -- with no result, of course - as he patted down her pockets and shirt, quick light touches as he muttered, ‘Sorry, sorry, beg pardon, sorry...’ And then he pulled back with her cell phone in his hand. 



Myrnin was silent for a beat, and then he said, ‘Bob would be disappointed in you.’ 

‘Bob the spider?’ 

‘He looks at you like a mother, you know......’ 



Michelle




I thought this was a pretty awesome fan made casting vid. 
I am rather impressed with Myrnin.
 Interesting choice, yet I can see it.

 Mind you I can see Sheldon from Big Bang Theory too
 as Mrynin, if he pulled up his manly pants tight:)
