Thanks to its unique combination of human and vampire residents, Morganville, Texas, is a small college town with big-time problems. When student Claire Danvers gets the chance to experience life on the outside, she takes it. But Morganville isn’t the only town with vampire trouble...
Claire never thought she’d leave Morganville, but when she gets accepted into the graduate program at MIT, she can’t pass up the opportunity. Saying good-bye to her friends is bittersweet, especially since things are still raw and unsettled between Claire and her boyfriend, Shane.
Her new life at MIT is scary and exciting, but Morganville is never really far from Claire’s mind. Enrolled in a special advanced study program with Professor Irene Anderson, a former Morganville native, Claire is able to work on her machine, which is designed to cancel the mental abilities of vampires.
But when she begins testing her machine on live subjects, things quickly spiral out of control, and Claire starts to wonder whether leaving Morganville was the last mistake she’ll ever make.
My Review: Perfection. Brilliant. Beyond this World. What more can I say?! This book had the most suspenseful, and heart grabbing ending ever! Okay, this is maybe my favorite book of the series. Even though I love each book!
I gobbled this book up in a day and half! The beginning was great, and then we got near the end where the fights were going on and it will make you read faster than light! I kept reading and didn't even notice how fast I was at the end.
Claire is still the same. Smart, Geeky, has Shane and a great group of friends. Now it is time for she to say goodbye for now. Today, Claire is leaving Morganville and going to Boston for MIT. Saying bye to Eve, Michael, Shane, and even Myrinn. Her parents are taking her to the airport and watching her go. So far the hardest part is leaving Shane. Things are still shaky between them, from the last book. At least she won't be alone, her BFF Liz is going to be her roomie in an apartment she got instead of a dorm.
Liz is now "Hot" dressed to impress, which is not how Claire last saw Liz. Liz is a good character, though she annoyed me at points. Plus she was rude to Claire at parts. Plus the new place isn't as nice as the Glass house. Claire then goes on a tour of the school and it wan't so fun, so then Claire just goes. The next day she goes to see the Scientist she was assigned to. Dr. Irene seems great at first until the ending, she is a BITCH. Ugh I was so freaking pissed and she lied to Claire in a major way!
How is she evil? Well first Myrinn leaves Mrganville and Micheal and Eve are sent after him. They all end up arriving at Petes house. (You will learn of Pete) Micheal has a stake in his hart, but a very bad kind. Needing two vampires to get the stake out so he wouldn't die. Shane and Claire had to be there to hide out, because of Liz being abducted and the cops after them. They didn't expect them to show up there. Though now that everyone is there, they can figure out their next move. VALD has gone missing, they have to find and save Liz and get the hell back to Morganville.
They figure out where Liz is and they go to save her. There, they find her stalker to be dead and save Liz, but have to get out now. They soon get trapped and need to get a new way before the people swarm in and shoot them. They get out and VLAD has appeared! It's in the hands of an asshole professor who had a one night stand with Liz. They all had escaped, except for Jesse, she got caught by VALD and they took her. So now they are on a new mission. Get Jesse and get VALD back.
Right now you have the usual group. You will meet Pete, Jesse a wicked cool and old vampire, and Oliver is back. So with them and the crew they go off and things go batshit crazy! VALD is used on the vamps, Dr. Irene shows up and apparently is working with Daylighters (anti vamp group) Claire comes up with a plan. Pretend to help get rid of the vamps and make her friends go with the plan, without them knowing. So when Irene trusts Claire to work on VALD, Claire tricks the switch so it wouldn't hurt the vamps. Once Claire shots all of them, she smashes VALD and they must all get out of there now.
Once the fight is done and the vamps "take care" of the situation, the farm land they are on is set on fire to erase any trace of them. From there, they make their way back to Morganville. After some day and night driving, with some hotel stops for naps and showers they finally make it to Morganville. Shane and Claire have gotten better and Eve and Micheal are by her side and all are happy again. Until Hanna drives up in her cruiser with others behind her.....That is when the world went upside down
This book was so freaking amazing! The ending was surprising and I am so glad that I had the last book right next to me so I can dive right in! There is only one book left to go before I have to say bye to this world. These books are amazing and one of the best series in the world.
