"Without the evil vampire Bishop ruling over the town of Morganville, life has changed--dramatically. The resident vampires have made major concessions to the human population. With their newfound freedoms, Claire Danvers and her friends are almost starting to feel comfortable again--almost. Now Claire can actually concentrate on her studies, and her friend Eve joins the local theater company. Yet when one of Eve's cast mates goes missing after starting work on a short documentary, Eve suspects the worst. As she and Claire investigate, they soon realize that not only is the subject of the film the vampires themselves, but that this project is a whole lot bigger--and way more dangerous--than anyone suspected."--p. [4] of cover.… (mais)

I try to express only my most honest opinion in a spoiler-free way. Unfortunately, there is still always a risk of slight spoilers despite my best efforts. If you feel something in my review is a spoiler please let me know. Thank you.

So for the first time since I started this series, I tried the audio version. I wasn't too impressed with the narrator. She did for the voice of the girls, but guys voices were way to 'frat bro' for me, and not at all how I've seen them so far. But despite that, I still enjoyed this book.

With Bishop finally gone the story took on a slightly less 'imminent death' sort of feel. Which was a needed break in the story. But that doesn't mean this book was boring. It had a lot of character development, especially for Micheal, Eve, Oliver, Amelie, and Myrnin. It left a lot open and left me itching to find out what's next for them. ( )

Another great Morganville installment, although with things slowing down a bit plot-wise, you can tell Caine had to struggle a tiny bit more to introduce the conflict and events. While some bits felt a little like filler, the characters and creepy denizens of Morganville kept the story strong.

With a tentative peace existing between the humans and vampires of Morganville, Claire hopes that she and her three Glass House friends can relax a little. Of course, it isn't a normal life; Claire is still working for the brilliant but unstable Myrnin and pays allegiance to cold but fair Amelie as Protector. Her good friend Eve seems to have found a more interesting best bud in her eccentric fellow actress Kim, who may also have designs on Shane. Myrnin's sentient computer Ada is acting stranger every day. But at least there aren't vicious enemies breathing down her neck every second. Or are there?

Without a true "main villain" to pull the plot together, it spirals into substories, most of them connected in the end. Fortunately, it definitely can't be said that character development suffers here; Claire continues to get layers added (and become more and more awesome), we see more human facets of Amelie, the nature of some vampire relationships and histories, and further new characters with new motives. Notable are the sweet and grounded relationship between Shane and Claire, the fantastic and hilarious bond between Claire and Myrnin, and the continued kinship between the inseperable Glass House four. And of course there is a uniquely equal balance of humor and horror, sweetness and conflict, to keep the story afloat. It's kind of nice to know that the author can still nicely sustain her story without a concrete "main arc" running through it.

Morganville has a new set of issues when some vampires want to leave and a human does something that threatens their town. Claire and her friends, of course, get caught up in the middle. I enjoy that there's always something new going on in this series. It's not just fighting the same battle over and over. New characters are brought in, granted mostly they've always been in the town, we just hadn't met them yet. The point is, it doesn't get boring or predictable. They're not constantly fighting the same set of circumstances or even the same vampire. I also really enjoy seeing the complex relationships between the members of the Glass house and how they grow and develop and go through obstacles. I think having Claire, an outsider, as the central main character is interesting too. This is someone who didn't grow up in Morganville and therefore has a different reaction to things that happen in the town. And I like seeing how people react to her reactions. It's just a great series. ( )

Eve Rosser's high-pitched scream rang out through the entire house, bouncing off every wall, and, like a taser applied to the spine, it brought Claire out of a pleasant, drowsy cuddle with her boyfriend.
