Morganville – the small Texan town where humans and vampires live together in relative harmony – is falling apart. After the arrival of the draug, the only creature that can truly inspire fear in the heart of a vampire, things take a decidedly dark turn in the town. When the draug show up, vampires either run or die.
However, whilst most of the town’s inhabitants have been evacuated, Claire, Eve, Shane and Michael decide to stay and take the fight to the draug. They do, after all, have good reason to wish them dead.
But when Amelie, the town’s founder is bitten by the master draug, not only do they have to win the battle but find a cure…before it’s too late.
I am really enjoying reading the story from the many different viewpoints, so this development in the storytelling was a great idea. It gives the reader a wider scope and can reveal more of what is going on beyond the the main character’s immediate environment.
The draug are an interesting enemy and I found learning how they effect both humans and vampires both scary and intriguing. There are a few major plot twists that I did not anticipate, which is always great, and the pace of the story kept me hooked until the very end.
When you reach this far in a series, you always wonder how long the author can keep you interested in the characters and the trials they face. That doesn’t seem to be a problem with the Morganville Vampires, I am happy to say.
I am looking forward to reading book thirteen in the series, and I am intrigued to find out where Morganville and its inhabitants can go from here.
