Genre: YA urban fantasy
With her boss preoccupied researching the Founder Houses in Morganville, student Claire Danvers is left to her own devices when she learns that three vampires have vanished without a trace. She soon discovers that the last person seen with one of the missing vampires is someone new to town-a mysterious individual named Magnus. After an uneasy encounter with Morganville's latest resident, Claire is certain Magnus isn't merely human. But is he a vampire-or something else entirely?
One thing is clear: Magnus is to blame for the disappearances. And if vampires are turning into victims, what chance does a human like Claire have?
The queen of cliffhangers does it again. It makes me crave the next book immediately. And that after an absolutely amazing story.
The blurb is total rubbish though, no one has ever seen Magnus, except for Claire … And for that, he …
The wedding between Michael and Eve makes for a lot of hostility in town, the vampires don't want one of their own to marry his pet/food/whatever, and the humans think they already fraternize too much with the vampires, and marrying your master/protector is just not done. It happened before, and it ended very badly.
And now, vampires are disappearing, and Amelie is getting ready to evacuate the town. What is out there that scares even her?
Rachel Caine keeps coming up with twists and turns in the story line that amaze me, and keep me glued to the pages. I should have been writing reviews today, instead of reading, but I just could not lay the book aside.
The world of Claire, Shane, Michael and Eve is fascinating. Horrible at times, but there is such a bond between the four of them. Add to that the fascinating crazy that is Myrnin, and the cold distance of Amelie and Olivier, and all the other characters and you have a lot of great reading hours ahead of you.
I am not a big fan of Young Adult, but this series I can heartily recommend to everyone who likes vampire books.
