Something with that skanky homeless Brit vamp--what's his name? You didn't have to act as if I stole your boyfriend or something. I had previously rated this book five stars on my last readthrough. To view it, Oh boy. The smell of the detergent and bleach was kind of pleasant, like really sharp flowers, the kind that would cut you if you tried to pick them. I assure you it is not. Look, I never meant--she wasn't part of it. And with that mix of personalities, this is going to be a road trip from hell.
He gave Eve a hand in, then Claire; Michael and Shane took the facing bench seat. I really didn't like the performance. Needs more cowbell vampire bunny slippers. They didn't believe him or they'd have gotten help to me a lot earlier. Regardless of that, i still think the plot was weak. She goes about it the wrong way.
I wasn't a big fan of the first half of the book but I am glad that at least Oliver was with them as I love his character. Eve's eyes went wide, and her black-painted lips parted in horrified fascination. The entire first half of the book was very teen-in-love tongue-in-cheek. No liquor allowed for them, thanks to the glowing wristbands they didn't get, but they danced. And it took something out of them.
He didn't suffer from the vampire virus, which is why his blood helped cure it, so how come he infected the vampires he made? I'm Chuckles, self named because I'm a grumpy muppet. I'll tell you how it happened to me. Okay, I think we're done. Hell, he hurt me, too! I was happy that it was easy enough for me to come back to this series after a year plus break I read the first 7 so close together that I overdosed for a while and be able to pick right up where I left off. Die Polizei in Scarborough ist alarmiert.
But you will come back to Morganville, or suffer the consequences. Collins, I will tolerate much from the four of you, including your occasional rudeness. I give people the option to follow me through Bloglovin'. Tall, broad, he had sun-streaked slacker hair and a heartbreaker's smile. One of her lipstick mafia girls was with her--Jennifer--but there was no sign of the other one, Gina. Claire, Eve, Shane, and Michael caused trouble in each town they went to until they were able to actually do good in the town crawling with feral vampires. He's not involved in this in any case.
Even Shane, although he mainly held on to Claire as she danced--which was fantastic. He sounded tired and defeated. Eve's eyes went wide, and her black-painted lips parted in horrified fascination. Oliver is one of my favorite characters in the series. So I lay low, kicking butt with my weapons, not my magic. Then, I began to miss Myrnin's quirkiness, Amelie's smooth self-control, and damn, even Road trip, baby! I should probably reward that by going back and raising my rating on book 1. It was one of those hi-I'm-home kisses, not one of his really good ones, but it still made Claire's heart flutter a little bit in her chest.
One thing I have to say about the Morganville Vamps series is that it never, ever st The Morganville Vampires has slowly become one of my favorite series. The real action doesn't start until well in to the book, perhaps this was to give the characters a rest, a well-earned vacation from the upheaval of the last 7 books. Passes for three people out of Morganville to be precise so he and two friends can leave the town. Because no one is pining away for the cool kid vampires. For one thing, he usually looked strung out and dirty and violent, and now he looked almost sober, and he was definitely on speaking terms with showers. In this book, Michael gets a recording deal in Dallas and is granted a leave from Morganville. They soon found themselves in the middle of another vampire revolt that lead them to Blacke where Bishop left his wake of vampires with infections.
He wants to set Michael up with some club dates in Dallas and a couple of days at a recording studio. Shane blew in the door just as she was chopping the last of the onions, which was typical Shane timing; five minutes earlier, and she'd have made him do the chopping. He just leaves me all giddy. For him, it usually works. I have made it clear to you, Claire, that I value your service to me and to Morganville; that you are important to us.
There are some good moments in it but with most of the cast of characters back in Morganville it felt a bit on the dull side. I do wonder though, will Claire join the vamps if Shane leaves and what is happening between Michael and Eve. Cat Conrad, live in Texas with their iguana, Popeye. I feel like this series is just going to be meh now for me. The basement of the Glass House was big, dark, and creepy, which wasn't really such a surprise.
While outside of Morganville, the four of them seriously entertain running off and never coming back. The ending was perfect but bittersweet. Morganville went in for dark and creepy the way Las Vegas went in for neon. She has been an accountant, a professional musician, an insurance investigator and, until recently, carried on a secret identity in the corporate world. Claire sighed in sympathetic happiness as Michael kissed his girlfriend and leaned over to whisper something in her ear--something that made Eve laugh and cuddle even closer. Overall, there were some great lines but this was probably the weakest of the series so far, though I am rubbing my hands together in anticipation of set back in Morganville for more mysteries and conspiracies.
