"With its eclectic mix of vampire and human citizens, Morganville, Texas, has always been a risky place to call home. But with the invasion of the vampire's deadliest enemy, Morganville isn't just in danger--it's dying...
Ever since the draug--mysterious creatures that prey on vampires--took over Morganville, the lives of student Claire Danvers and her friends have been thrown into turmoil. Most of the town's residents have evacuated, but Claire, Shane, Eve and Michael have chosen to stay and fight.Using the city's water system to spread, the draug have rapidly multiplied. Things in Morganville look grim, especially since vampire Amelie--the town founder--has been infected by the master draug's bite. Now, if Claire and her friends don't figure out how to cure Amelie and defeat the draug, it looks like Morganville will become little more than a ghost town.
My Review: As usual the books are amazing. The book starts off with everyone waking up in a massive room. They wake up to Michael's screaming. Michael is remembering what happened the night before. The night before they fought the draugh and managed to save 3 people him , Oliver, and the founder Amelie. Everyone seems fine except for Eve and Amelie. Eve flinches at the touch by Michael after he attacked and drank from her from being in the water with the draug to long. Amelie on the other hand isn't doing so well, she is so sick that no one thinks she'll make it out alive. With that in mind they have to do something so Myrinn has a plan for Claire and her friends on how to help to the draugh. Claire and her gang head to the water plant to help stop the draugh. They manage to stop and reverse the water flow and place mounds of silver in the water. As they go to leave Shane is caught by the draugh. Claire runs hoping Shane will make it. But as she gets to the car, Michael starts to drive away with Claire screaming her head off tell Michael to turn back for Shane. Every tells her that Shane is gone but he really isn't. According to Myrnin he may still be alive. After going back Claire and her friends find Shane and rescue him still alive. Now as you get to the end there is a loss, but don't worry its not a big character. The ending brought victory to Morganville and a special ending for two of the main characters.
