Fall of Night, Book #14 of the MORGANVILLE VAMPIRES series
by Rachel Caine
Synopsis: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...
Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Pack Alpha - Michelle L. Olson:
All I could say when I finished this book was "Holy mother...."
I wasn't sure what to expect with all of the changes from the last couple books, the breakup of our known posse and the tension running rampant, but if it's even possible for me to love one of these books even more than I already have been, Fall of Night did the trick!
I started the book at 1am on release day because I simply couldn't wait, and by the next afternoon I was finished. I couldn't put it down!
I love the new characters, the action was even more intense than usual (and that's saying A LOT!), and the surprises... I don't even know where to begin; I'm actually a bit speechless right now. Let me just say that I don't think I've said "OMG!" so many times over the course of one book ever. Fall of Night was absolutely, amazingly, stunningly awesome!
An easy 5 Skull read, and though I didn't think it was possible, this series (even after 14 books) just keeps getting better!
