After discovering that vampires populate her town, college student Claire Danvers knows that the undead just want to live their lives. But someone else wants them to get ready to rumble.

There's a new extreme sport getting picked up on the Internet: bare—knuckle fights pitting captured vampires against each other—or humans. Tracking the remote signal leads Claire—accompanied by her friends and frenemies—to discover that what started as an online brawl will soon threaten everyone in Morganville...





BOOK REVIEW by Michelle :

Stinky Doug, phials of blood........Dead Doug.

Rachel Caine has taken a new direction with Bite Club. The story has to do with Dead Doug and the mystery unfolding there, but we get to travel around in Shane’s head. I liked this. It was at times creepy, the wealth of story that was bobbling about in his head and we got some wonderful depth from Shane. There was a whole lot of anger management issues going on there........not entirely his fault.

I am going to say I think this is the best book so far in the series, holy mac and cheese. Rachel had Shane giving Myrnin a run for his money in the losing the plot stakes. ( no pun intended with the stake...well, maybe)

There was a whole lot of poop going down in this book and poor Claire was trying to wade through it all. This instalment would have looked very impressive on the big screen.

I loved having Detective Travis Lowe and Detective Joe Hess back, albeit for a short breath of a visit, but it puts that bit of prospective into the storyline, that there are human cops policing Morganville as well.

I do laugh at Frank and Myrnin’s working relationship. Rachel can have so much fun here. For obvious reasons.

I am still deciding about Oliver. There is always a teeny something showing through, but then it hides back underneath his facade of cranky, badass vampire.

I do enjoy this series, so much. Rachel just has me there, in Morganville, with Claire and all the things she carries around on her shoulders as she fights for good , against what is lurking in the shadows, waiting to pray upon those she loves.

I even felt a bit kickass crazy with Shane this time too. He was in my head, talking all kinds of crazy. It was quite a ride being in Shane’s head.

I have started Last Breath, and OMG!! All I will say is ‘RUN.’



FAVE QUOTES:

She turned and kissed him full-on, just a sweet, swift brush of lips, because he was already moving.... and then he did a double take and came back to kiss her again, slower, hotter, better.



Shane fluttered his hands. ‘Oh, and then we were all elected as ice princesses and asked to go to Disneyland!’ He rolled his eyes.



‘Claire,’ he said, in a low , soothing , carefully controlled voice. ‘I would like you to take out your mobile phone and call the police, please. Do that now. Perhaps that emergency number. ‘

.....’Why?’ she whispered, as she started punching the three numbers in.

‘Because it’s an emergency,’ he said, and then something hit him.......




‘Karma,’ she said. ‘It’s a bitch.’



‘Dear girls, I can let anyone get hurt, because in my world, my safety and well-being come first,’ he said. ‘I thought you knew that by now.’



‘Don’t make me say nasty things in front of the juveniles,’ Frank said, ‘because I’m not your dog, crazy man....’



‘I wouldn’t do that. I am not a - what do you call it? Snark?’


Myrnin raised his chin. ‘Dear lady, I’ve never----‘

‘Only ‘cause I don’t allow you anywhere near my property. you know what I call you? Trapdoor Spider.’

Myrnin blinked. ‘That is .... surprisingly accurate, actually......’


'Follow me,' Myrnin said.  'And do stay together. And by the way, this is the last time I go anywhere with you people. You are all insane.'
