While Morganville, Texas, is often a troubled town, Claire Danvers and her friends are looking forward to coming home. But the Morganville they return to isn’t the one they know; it’s become a different place—a deadly one…
Something drastic has happened in Morganville while Claire and her friends were away. The town looks cleaner and happier than they’ve ever seen it before, but when their incoming group is arrested and separated—vampires from humans—they realize that the changes definitely aren’t for the better.
It seems that an organization called the Daylight Foundation has offered the population of Morganville something they’ve never had: hope of a vampire-free future. And while it sounds like salvation—even for the vampires themselves—the truth is far more sinister and deadly.
Now, Claire, Shane and Eve need to find a way to break their friends out of Daylighter custody, before the vampires of Morganville meet their untimely end…
Includes a teaser from Prince of Shadows: A Novel of Romeo and Juliet!
Caine provides a satisfying conclusion to her long-running Morganville Vampires series. Claire Danvers returns to Morganville, Tex., with her closest friends after a stint at grad school in Boston. Morganville looks different, with spruced-up buildings and smiling townspeople. The Daylighters have taken over, and their leader plans to rid the town of vampires. Claire's friend Michael is forced into a vampire enclave, an electronic collar slapped on his neck, and his marriage to Eve nullified. The premise has a Nazi vibe, heightened by the Daylighter symbols found all over Morganville. Michael's friends, the Glass House, and the town ghost lend aid to free the imprisoned vamps. Claire's bipolar vampire boss adds dark humor to the fast-moving plot, Shane's romance with Claire progresses, and for sharp readers there's a historical Easter egg. Ages 18 up.

I feel so privileged to have stumbled across the first book about four years ago in Barnes and Nobles when they re promoted the series into one book split into two. I immediately feel in love with the writing (i have never read a teen book and trust me i have read a lot that had such natural and realistic writing) i really felt that i was truly apart of the story i could see everything so clearly i felt as if i was watching a movie. The story itself has so many dynamics but it never differs from its main plot which i love. Morganville is like my home away from home ... It feels so real when i read it and you really grow connected. You go through the same conflicts the characters do. You quickly fall in love with the friendship that eve, Michael, claire, and shane have. There love story is also amazing ... It is not the central focus but whenever Caine decides to put in a loving moment between claire and shane your heart sort of just melts... And what makes the story even better is that its filled with endings that will leave you satisfied ... Everything Caine does in this series can be justified. It is such an amazing story and by far my favorite series ... I will treasure the times i had reading about these amazing characters and it pains me so much to see it end. But please don't hesitate to pay ten dollars for it ... Because it will be the best and most rewarding ten dollars you ever spent!
Loved the whole series.
Great ending to the series, I enjoyed the whole series and will probably read it again.
I have read all of the books in the series and this was a great novel. I can't believe that the series is finished I loved following the characters in the books.
