I love your review and agree with every word in it!! I listen to books at work and these have been very entertaining and keep my guessing I read the first 11 books and grow tired of Morganville, I just wanted to know the end. It was an amazing ending, and she figured out how to give me what I wanted and needed for closure.

The real Lady Grey was intelligent and …more You're absolutely right. The real Lady Grey was intelligent and strong-willed; she was also beheaded when she was 17 years old. Her existence as a vampire is explained in Nothing Like an Angel a story contained within the Midnight Bites release : Amelie says she "found a girl of similar age and coloring willing to take her place [on the scaffold] in exchange for rich compensation to her family.
I do hope you don't plan to reenact Drogheda. I base this mainly on the similarity of the names, the fact that the legendary Myrddin was a prophet and a madman, and the fact that they are both Welsh in origin. Online sources seem to indicate that Myrddin appeared around A. This correlates well with the books, where Myrnin is said to be older than the resident vampire queen Amelie specifically, this is mentioned by Claire in And One For the Devil, which is also contained in Midnight Bites.
Unfortunately, I cannot determine Amelie's origins. But we do know that she "died" a princess at around the age of 20, and is probably not much younger than Myrnin Bitter Blood, Myrnin's point of view : "Amelie my sweet lady, so small and shy and quiet in the beginning when your master and mine had met, when as fledgling vampires we had learned the joy of the hunt, the terror of being owned. We either have to surmise that 1.
Age and bloodline are not the sole determinants of vampiric clout Oliver, like Amelie, was turned by Bishop. A mistake was made in the writing of the books. This is a problem because Amelie also says to Oliver that "He was yours [implying fledgling]", and Oliver Cromwell was born Historical figures are used mainly for the sake of their personality and less for reference to time in which they existed.
By all accounts, Oliver Cromwell was extraordinary as a breather; how much greater would his powers of influence be as a supernatural, immortal creature? Just food for thought.

I've been reading the Morganville series for years , it was comforting to think that every year I would come back to read about Claire's crazy adventures, Myrnin's insane driving skills, Michael's dreamyness, Eve's gothic soul, and Shane's oftentimes moronic state of mind. Morganville is a dear old friend, and I am sad to have to say goodbye.
I am just glad the series ended on a good note, that it gave us closure, and that it's last book was a marvelous one I cannot believe it has come to an end.
I am just glad the series ended on a good note, that it gave us closure, and that it's last book was a marvelous one. It certainly manages to turn the world and rules we have come to expect from our heroines and heroes upside down, that's for sure! Which leads to great entertainment and some serious soul searching. They've finally got their peace, what they always wanted, and I'm coming back to rip it apart.
I'm the villain. It has it's bad guy to be defeated, vampires to be rescued, Shane being a knucklehead and Claire being a hero.
An every day Morganville tale, right? Yes, but this one is quite different in that it plays in the gray zone. Peace is back in Morganville's streets. The human residents can walk freely at night and breathe without fearing the vampires will attack for no reason whatsoever, but at that cost? The Daylighters corralled the vampires into an enclave and more than likely are ready to kill every last one of them. Claire is troubled, she knows the Daylighters are not good news but at the same time the people in Morganville are finally safe, what is she to do?
Let the vampires perish? You know the answer to that, and thus begins the Morganville title in which Claire Danvers, Eve, and Shane are somehow the villains of the story, for better or for worse. It's to your credit, but it's also extremely inconvenient.
I recently re-read Glass House again and I have to say Claire has grown up so much. She is a woman now, a fiercely intelligent and brave woman. She would make a kick ass vampire fan fiction anyone? But it isn't only Claire, I will admit Shane has also grown up a lot, and changed. For the most part he let go of his prejudices and even helps the vampires from time to time. He has also grown out of most of his anger issues, though he is still good for a brawl every so often.
Do you really intend to sit this one out? There's a fight, and I'm not in it? That seems wrong. I have come to accept him, and even find him kind of hilarious at times.
He has some really funny quotes in this book. Oh he is so dreamy. Feed a starving woman! He is the one who changed drastically on the outside, but not on the inside. He was always caring and strong and sweet, even as a ghost and then as a vampire. I feel like Eve became a little lost herself in the love she felt for Michael, which isn't bad but what does Eve actually want to do with her life?
Other than being married to Michael and living happily ever after in a Vampire populated Morganville? I don't know really. Still she can handle herself in a fight and has a quick tongue, which we all appreciate. Oh my love. I have loved you ever since you were first introduced.
I will miss you a lot, and I hope you are happy with Lady Gray. I hope you don't accidentally kill her, and put her brain in a computer. Though if that makes Rachel Caine write more Morganville books then by all means!
It would also be extremely cool if Mrs. Caine were to write about the days before Morganville.

Review: Daylighters by Rachel Caine
Post a comment. Thursday, 27 March I cannot review this book without spoiling the others in the series. Read no further if you're planning on reading this series and don't want it spoilt for you. While Morganville, Texas, is often a troubled town, Claire Danvers and her friends are looking forward to coming home. And while it sounds like salvation—even for the vampires themselves—the truth is far more sinister and deadly.
