In honor of the 12 days of Morganville Vampires Madness, I’m posting my long overdue review of book 3! And I have a cool giveaway for you too!
Midnight Alley by Rachel Caine Pages: 245 Publication Date: October 2nd 2007 by Signet Age Group: YA Series: Morganville Vampires #3 Source: Bought Buy this Book: Amazon Summary(from Goodreads):
Morganville is such a nice place to live… And die. If you don’t mind that sort of thing. When Claire Danvers learnt that her college town was run by vampires, she did what any intelligent, self-preserving student would do: she applied for a transfer and stocked up on garlic. The transfer is no longer an option, but that garlic may come in handy. Now Claire has pledged herself to Amelie, the most powerful vampire in town. The protection her contract secures does little to reassure her friends. All of a sudden, people are turning up dead, a stalker resurfaces from Claire’s past, and an ancient bloodsucker extends a chilling invitation for private lessons in his secluded home.
This series is really shaping up. I’m starting to really get into the books. When I finished book one, I was just reading book two partly to see where it went, but mostly just because I already had the second book in the series. Now I am actually into the series and I want to know what is going to happen next. I am really, really liking it!
I am so happy that the series is grabbing my attention. I enjoyed the last book and I liked this one just as much! I love that Claire is uncovering some more secrets about the vampires, and along the way she gets to meet this really cool/scary/crazy vampire. I can’t wait to see what is going to happen next with some of the “secrets” she found out about, and her continuing research. Claire belongs in a school/research lab and I think with the new developments she will be able to stay in one for a while. I loved that this happened! It should be interesting.
Ok, so now is when the mid-series review slump hits me. I have a hard time reviewing the in-between books in a longer series. Because I have already described the characters and talked about the ones I liked or disliked, so I don’t have as many things to gush or rant about. So all I will say is…Bring on the next book!
4/5 Gavels As a side note, I have noticed that when I read and review longer series, my reviews for the middle books are always much shorter. There just isn’t as much for me to say, I guess haha
