FTC: This is my book and I am not being compensated for this review.

What it's about:
Vampire Michael Glass just received the call he's been waiting for all his life. His music has attracted the attention of a heavily connected music producer who wants him to cut a demo and play some dates--which means Michael will have to enter the human world.

But he won't be alone. He's been assigned an undead escort, which includes immortal enforcer Oliver, as well as Michael's human friends: rebellious Eve, oft-misunderstood Claire, and courageous Shane. And with that mix of personalities, this is going to be a road trip from hell.

But what waits for them proves more perilous than they thought. Caught between humans who hate them and a savage party of traveling vampires out to create a blood-soaked feast for themselves, Michael and his friends may not make it to the show on time...or ever.

My thoughts:
This is the 8th book in the Morganville Vampire series by Rachel Caine. I love this series but I do feel like the series really ended with book 6. After that book there is no long continuing story plot. It is just one disaster after the other that happens. Don't get me wrong, I love the books, but it should have ended with book six.

Claire is such a strong leading lady. I love it. She's a genius that with a few minutes to spare can do anything. It's fantastic. The main four are fabulous characters. Eve who is always trying to be dark but really is a pretty princess inside, Michael who is georgous and sweet, and then Shane. What is there not to love about Shane? He's strong, protective, and incredibly romantic, even if he doesn't think so. These books would never work if you took out any one of these main four. They work too well together.

This is a pretty short read filled full of action from the first page to the last. Living in Morganville is never easy for the four characters and apparently neither is leaving Morganville. This book will keep your pulse rate high and leave you wondering how in the world they are going to get out of this situation.

My rating: 9/10

I love getting comments! I'm always checking to see if I have any new comments. It's actually pretty sad how often I check for them really. So if there is anything you want to say about a post of mine, please say it! I want feedback :)

As of lately, I'm making the blog a no-award blog. I love getting them and I'm always honored, but I don't have the time to do all the things that are required of them. Sorry :(
Also, my "reply" button does not seem to be working in my comments on my computer. I have to use a different computer to reply back so if I don't reply, it's not because I'm rude, it's just that I can't.
