    For me to still be reading a series after 13 books, is a pretty big deal I love this series because of the characters and probably could read chapters of them just hanging out and playing video games But that s not going to happen not with this group Basically Claire finally goes to MIT and we see the world outside of Morganville, trouble finds her almost immediately, which is my only complaint I would have loved to see her as a MIT student, making some friends and just taking a breath for For me to still be reading a series after 13 books, is a pretty big deal I love this series because of the characters and probably could read chapters of them just hanging out and playing video games But that s not going to happen not with this group Basically Claire finally goes to MIT and we see the world outside of Morganville, trouble finds her almost immediately, which is my only complaint I would have loved to see her as a MIT student, making some friends and just taking a breath for the first time in this series Just a chapter would have been lovely there are moments, but she s way to twitchy, which I understand, but stilla girl could hope The action accelerates quickly and it s non stop until the last pages Warning, there is a major cliffhanger at the end so make sure you have the next book, Daylighters on hand cause you re going to want to read it next.I really enjoyed the chapters from Shane s POV and was happy that there were only the two POVs this time

    Fall of Night was, as always, full of action and adventure, with enough risk to get your blood pumping It was different than other titles, while on the heart of it it remained the same Set entirely outside of the boundaries of Morganville you would think Claire would get a second of peace away from the vampires and the dark twisty thing that is her life But then again that wouldn t make for a great novel, and Fall of Night is certainly a great addition into the series Claire needed to get ou Fall of Night was, as always, full of action and adventure, with enough risk to get your blood pumping It was different than other titles, while on the heart of it it remained the same Set entirely outside of the boundaries of Morganville you would think Claire would get a second of peace away from the vampires and the dark twisty thing that is her life But then again that wouldn t make for a great novel, and Fall of Night is certainly a great addition into the series Claire needed to get outside of Morganville, if only to experience what it feels like and to know exactly what she wants for her future without external forces making the decisions for her What she decides at the end may shock some, and dazzle manyIt is weird reading a Morganville Vampire novel that is not set in Morganville You don t get to know what is going on around town, you only get to see what Claire sees and knows from her stay in Boston But do not worry guys, it s still as exciting as if she were back in Morganville because it s as if Morganville troubles follow her everywhere she goes The next novel, Daylighters, is probably going to have a healthy recap of what was going on in Morganville while Claire was away believe me, the town was turned upside down by the end of Fall of Night, and not in a good way I cannot wait There is not a lot of Eve and Michael for over half the book, there is absolutely no Amelie, and Oliver only appears briefly halfway to the end There are only two POVs in this novel, Claire s and Shane s You can only imagine how mortified I was to discover that I would have to spend half the book in Shane s head Ms Cane couldn t have come up with a better way to torture me , butSurprisingly I have no complains when it comes to Shane in this title.He was actually kind of sweet, and supportive in Fall of Night Then again, he always manages to correct himself in one book only to disappoint me all over again in the next one, and I bet next book is going to be his worst one yet Just you wait and see.On the other hand there is Myrnin, oh sweet and wonderful Myrnin who keeps a spider as his pet I want Myrnin to be happy so badly, with Claire, which is in part why I am in the we hate Shane club Gotta warn you though, there is a new lady friend An old vampire flirting with my Myrnin HE FLIRTS BACK Claire better get her act together because Myrnin will not wait forever, and if she isn t careful she will loose him for good Which is what she deserves, but they make such a perfect team The ending was unexpected, and shocking Just when you think nothing else could possibly happen, or go wrong, guess what Rachel Caine comes up with a new idea of how to make things evenscrewed up But isn t that why we love the series There is always a problem to solve, and the solutions are never what you think they should be I can honestly say that even in it s FOURTEENTH book the Morganville Vampire series is as thrilling as ever, and I, yet again, cannot wait for the next book view spoiler Morganville by the end of Fall of Night is being run by the HUMANS They took over with the help of an anti vampire agency of sorts, and while this should by all means be a good thing in my heart it just feels wrong That is the vampire s city, and as such it s how it should stay hide spoiler Old Update Me, today, when I checked my mail and saw that I had a package from Penguin, opened it, and realized what was inside 1 hour laterFall of Night I shall devour you.Here s hoping that Shane dies a horrible death, Claire becomes a vampire, and Myrnin gets his happy ending.Kidding, KIDDING sort of

    She s a tricky woman, that Rachel Caine When I first read the blurb of Fall of Night, I was a little bit concerned Claire s given permission to leave Morganville and is off to MIT I envisioned a whole book about Claire, and missing all my favourite characters and the town of Morganville too How can that be I thought in a panic No Morganville No Myrnin No Eve How can Ms Caine do this to us I should havefaith D Yes, Claire is off to MIT, to study in an advanced graduate program, u She s a tricky woman, that Rachel Caine When I first read the blurb of Fall of Night, I was a little bit concerned Claire s given permission to leave Morganville and is off to MIT I envisioned a whole book about Claire, and missing all my favourite characters and the town of Morganville too How can that be I thought in a panic No Morganville No Myrnin No Eve How can Ms Caine do this to us I should havefaith D Yes, Claire is off to MIT, to study in an advanced graduate program, under Professor Irene Anderson who is herself, an ex Morganville native, and who pretty much worked for Myrnin as Claire does And while Morganville itself doesn t star in the novel, we do get to revisit with its citizens Happy Snoopy Dance You see, I m not a fan of Young Adult novels, especially Young Adult paranormals In fact, I have to say that I don t like them at all 99% of the ones I pick up or read about, are cut from the same cloth The plots never differ, the characters are all the same There s instalove, there s love triangles and there are parents who are either totally oblivious, or absent or abusive Note to teenagers parents are not oblivious of what you up to We always know.we were teens ourselves once.But Rachel Caine s Morganville Vampire series has grabbed me Right from the very first book, I never felt I was reading something aimed at Young Adults I am probably twice the age of the demographic of these books, yet I never ever felt it No instalove here s a secret I always felt Claire and Micheal would be the ones to hook up Could have knocked me down with a feather when it was Claire and Shane No love triangles I loathe love triangles, cos let s face it, how often do these happen in Real Life And while Claire was young, she wasn t a silly, self centred, immature character She was intelligent She was clever and sweet and wonderful and oh how I would have loved to have been Claire when I was younger So here s Claire, leaving Morganville at last, knowing she will desperately miss her friends, and at the same time, feeling the relief of being out of the dangers Morganville holds She contacts her former best friend from pre Morganville and moves in with her It s a testament to how Morganville has changed Claire, that she finds she no longer has much in common with the former BFF and it s a very uneasy relationship.She has her machine, the one that changes vampires mental capabilities, and oh when it is used at one particular point during the book, my heart wanted to break Is the machine a good thing, saving humans from the bloodlust attacks of vampires Or is it something worse, something that can end up be used for pain and bad things instead We have a couple of new characters, one I m not too sure I liked much as she is the epitome of the gorgeous, bad ass, Urban Fantasy female lead that I m starting to get a bit tired of in the genre Plus she has a bit of history with Myrnin Get away from my Myrnin, you skank cough Ah yes Right then Where was I My sweet crazy totally loopy Myrnin does appear in the book, which is as it should be D Without Myrnin, this series would probably lose about 45% of its appeal to me, I think I would still read and enjoy a Morganville Vampires book without him, but it just wouldn t be as sweet tasting to me.All in all, Fall of Night is another worthy entry into the series If you ve never read them before, start with the first one Glass Houses, don t start here You need to learn about the characters, and you need to watch Claire s growth from frightened little bookworm wondering what the hell she s gotten herself into, to the wonderful, smart, intelligent, reasoning, strong bad ass young woman she is now.And you need to fall in love with Myrnin the way I did, bit by crazy bit D

    Okay, I am justshocked and disappointed Definitely not words I normally use to describe the Rachel Caine reading experience Where do I begin when describing all the ways this book this series just went wrong And just to clarify I realize this book was supposed to have a slightly different feel to it, since the main character was leaving the main setting That in itself I don t have a problem with A similar situation occurred in book eight, Kiss of Death, and that s one of my favorites Okay, I am justshocked and disappointed Definitely not words I normally use to describe the Rachel Caine reading experience Where do I begin when describing all the ways this book this series just went wrong And just to clarify I realize this book was supposed to have a slightly different feel to it, since the main character was leaving the main setting That in itself I don t have a problem with A similar situation occurred in book eight, Kiss of Death, and that s one of my favorites in the series What I take issue with is all the stuff that happened once Claire got to MIT Starting with Okay, first of all, I understand that they re not used to living outside of Morganville, where there s actual laws and stuff, but was it really necessary for them to become entangled in all this side crap, like Elizabeth s stalker situation, Shane getting beat up by some random group of guys, etc I mean, how much bad luck can a person have And now Claire s possibly wanted for murder, and Shane for illegal weapons possession You d think they d be a littlecareful Jesse Lady Gray and Myrnin White I make no attempt to hide that I m a Clyrnin shipper, I realize that s NEVER going to happen with Shane in the picture Still, Myrnin s new little fling struck me as being tooconvenient Clearly, Rachel Caine created the character of Jesse solely for the purpose of tying up the whole love triangle issue before the rapidly approaching end of the series And it doesn t even make sense Myrnin is one of the oldest vampires around He knows everyone Why did he act so surprised to see Lady Gray again More importantly, why was he only attracted to her now That seems rather out of character for him, considering how he d been obsessively pining over Ada for so long, even when she was dead Myrnin barely allows himself to get distracted enough to hint at his admiration and possible love for CLAIRE, so why does he suddenly have all this time and desire to flirt with Jesse The Daylight Foundation Ugh Yeah, that s it, Rachel Go the way of every other vampire series and have some mysterious, cutthroat organization out to commit vampire genocide for the good of mankind In fact, I take that back they re not even cutthroat Cunning, yes Ambitious, yes Cutthroat Not so much Maybe it s the fact that despite being so well equipped and funded, we never heard of them until book fourteen Just my opinion, but it kinda prevents me from taking them seriously That and the whole CIA wannabe thing black vans, shades, suits I think I take Captain Obvious and Coseriously At least those guys are creative Not appreciating that final crushing blow of betrayal from Hannah at the end there I can see how shocking betrayals make good plot twists, of course, but seriously, Rachel Caine We ve already had so MANY characters who pretended to go with the flow, and were later discovered to be ruthless rebels Aside from the Glass House Four, for lack of a better group name, there have been so FEW human supporting characters who you could always root for and trust to do the right thing After Richard s death, Hannah was pretty much the last one And maybe Richard s death had something to do with her snapping, but it still doesn t seem at all like her Heck, she was always the one going AFTER the rabble rousers To sum it up, it just didn t FEEL like the Morganville I know and love The trademark humor was gone lackluster at best, the situations and scenarios were overdone, the characters weren t true to themselves All I can say is that I hope the last book clears all this up in a satisfying way, because I am NOT liking the direction this is going Unfortunately, I don t have high hopes Alsothe whole farm in the country setup Did that not remind anyone else of the season four premiere of Vampire Diaries, when the Founders Council rounded up a bunch of vampires and imprisoned them in cages at Pastor Young s farm I m not trying to imply that Rachel Caine is stealing ideas on the contrary, she s one of the most creative authors out there but perhaps she could have found aoriginal alternative I mean, they re THE DAYLIGHT FOUNDATION Shouldn t they have a bunker, or something And some smaller, parting thoughts How many times do we have to fake kill Oliver, Michael, and Myrnin to get the point across that Claire cares about them How many back and forth phone calls will it take before Claire and Shane quit immediately assuming the worst of each other In this book, Claire was doing exactly what she was accusing Shane of in the last book, and I m surprised she didn t realize it, smart as she is It made me lose a teeny amount of respect for her Not to mention it dragged on for half the book Oh, she didn t call back She must be mad at me, so I won t call her Oh, he s not calling me, so he must be cheating on me, so I won t call him Maybe I m biased against the Claire Shane pairing here, but they were just so OBNOXIOUS in this book I find it kinda hard to believe that Amelie, as the badass vampire queen of Morganville, with all of her contacts, didn t realize Professor Anderson had turned against them while in Massachusetts, much less smuggled samples out of Myrnin s lab.Okay, maybe those last few points weren t as short as I meant them to be, but you get my point

    Fuck, alright BADDASS MANLY FICTION REVIEWER got his hands on an ARC copy of FALL OF NIGHT thanks to his having shrieked at Rachel Caine over the interwebs that she should really get her ass into gear and get this shit out on the shelves, and Rachel couldn t help but admire his BADDASS MANLY FICTION REVIEWER spunk Wait, that came out wrong FUCK IT ONWARD Anyway, BAMFR just finished his copy of this book not two seconds ago, and it turns out that it s very easy to review Did DEAR READER lik Fuck, alright BADDASS MANLY FICTION REVIEWER got his hands on an ARC copy of FALL OF NIGHT thanks to his having shrieked at Rachel Caine over the interwebs that she should really get her ass into gear and get this shit out on the shelves, and Rachel couldn t help but admire his BADDASS MANLY FICTION REVIEWER spunk Wait, that came out wrong FUCK IT ONWARD Anyway, BAMFR just finished his copy of this book not two seconds ago, and it turns out that it s very easy to review Did DEAR READER like previous books in THE MORGANVILLE VAMPIRES Then you will very much want to read this Did DEAR READER dislike previous books in same Then steer clear LONG VERSION FALL OF NIGHT is set in a different town to every other book so far, but it sof the same as far as writing, characterisation and so forth go It isn t doesn t take a shift upward in terms of quality of prose, and it doesn t take a shift downward, but the series was already GOOD ENOUGH, goddamnit This is urban fantasy where the main character isn t a leather clad sex goddess that can beat up any other human, and has super powers because REASONS And damnit, I like it that way WHERE WE LEFT OFF AT THE END OF THE LAST BOOK Claire Danvers and Friends had just beat the living hell out of assorted creepy crawlies, restored Amelie to her throne, and watched as aegalitarian society was born Claire won her freedom from the town for herself and her boyfriend.WHERE WE START About five minutes later We spend a couple of hours in Morganville saying our goodbyes to Claire s colleagues, friends, and lover, and we see her to Cambridge, where she s set to study under the tutelage of a former colleague of Myrnin s.WHERE WE GO Claire lives with her best friend in high school, which is an excellent way to show her growth over the course of the series from frightened bookworm to confident badass compared to new girl Liz, Claire may as well be super human, but it s all as a result of her being able to think through her problems rather than blunt force them to death, which is always fantastic to have in a character.Shane comprises about a third to a half of the viewpoint chapters, but he isn t irritating as rotten batshit this time DEAR READER might expect BAMFR to have loved BITE CLUB, which was basically the Shane Collins Punching Vampires show on the basis that the book revolved around punching vampires , but DEAR READER, you would be wrong Shane is a complete tool, and BAMFR loathes the fact that he and Claire seem destined for each other, but the simple fact that BAMFR does feel these strong emotions means that the relationship is doing its job ANYWAY So, yes, Shane is sharing the spotlight with Claire again But because his chapters are mostly focused on Claire rather than getting his rocks off in an underground fight club, they don t detract from the story at all, and are in fact completely tolerable, though BAMFR still found himself wishing that it was all from Claire s perspective That said, Rachel does some clever things with viewpoints revolving around the same event, and it s an interesting comparison of how the characters think and behave.All that said, BAMFR had a fairly large problem with the way that the big twist happened One character is in league with another character, but they do a thing which only seems like it would makes sense if they re not in league in the first place However BAMFR didn t think about it at all until after he started writing this review it did not take him out of the story at all, so unless you start heavily analysing the plot after the fact, you won t be troubled Instead, just bask in the afterglow of the final scene, which sets up the final book incredibly well BAMFR sat back with his jaw dropped and didn t speak for a couple of minutes It was fucking masterful.In retrospect it was kind of vaguely disappointing that the new antagonists were, well, new you d think that in 13 books that there d be some dangling plot points that could have been used to set them up rather than bringing in a fresh batch out of the blue But this is an extraordinarily minor concern in the grand scheme of things, and BAMFR is not unhappy with how he spent the last few hours in the slightest FALL OF NIGHT does exactly what it sets out to do, and the wait till November is going to kill BAMFR, he just fucking knows it

    I ve never reviewed a book on goodreads before, but I just finished this book, and feel I have to vent I didn t like this book I m in no way saying it s a bad book it s written decently and as usual, the interactions between characters and the dialogue work perfectly fine It s just I didn t like it It just felt off to me, in an indescribable way There are however, a few gripes I can describe A small thing is that we don t see much of the whole gang, especially Michael and Eve I don t I ve never reviewed a book on goodreads before, but I just finished this book, and feel I have to vent I didn t like this book I m in no way saying it s a bad book it s written decently and as usual, the interactions between characters and the dialogue work perfectly fine It s just I didn t like it It just felt off to me, in an indescribable way There are however, a few gripes I can describe A small thing is that we don t see much of the whole gang, especially Michael and Eve I don t blame Rachel Caine for this, it was the right move to make with the plot and everything but maybe that threw me off a little We didn t get to see much of their usual interaction Oh and when they do get together they re not in sync like the scooby gang we all know and love As has been the case in the last few books, it s a little bit awkward, things go wrong that must all be Claire s fault, and Eve decides Shane and Claire are always trying to kill Michael My favourite line in the book was Claire s I m sick of people not trusting me It wasn t an emotional scene, or a pivotal moment or anything, but I felt that line packed a punch I couldn t help but think Yes Claire, I m sick of these fools not trusting you too They ve come so far together, the 4 main characters, and the other vampires even I hate that they re still like this Especially with Claire, who has fixed 1001 situation in the past and saved all of their lives Then, Shane Each of the Morganville books can go one of two ways for me I can either love Shane, or I can hate Shane Only, for the latest few I have hated Shane quite a bit So, in this book despite him being a likable character and a decent P.O.V, he just rubs me the wrong way sometimes That whole secret, sneaky stalker act he had going on was ridiculous A similar situation in the first 5 books would have been fair enough within the first 10 books would have been annoying But God, i would have hoped he could mature past this But 14 books in, 13 adventures past, he s hiding in the shadows to keep an eye on his fianc because he loves her too much not to work kinda near her and stand across the road from her house to watch it from the darkness ever so often Oh and then he gets drunk and beaten the shit out of by a group of average guys That s perfect Shane If Claire s in trouble you can always stumble upon the the evil vampire, vomit on him, and then pass out He actually does the same thing as Claire s roommate s Stalker, who s a villain They stand within feet of eachother, watching this dark house with two teenage girls inside I It What That was stupid Stupid, stupid Shane And this is usually where I d go on to soliloquise about my love for Myrnin as an alternative love interest I was prepared to up until he popped up in the second half of the book I didn t believe she d do it, but she has Rachel Caine as introduced a last minute female character to give Myrnin his well wrapped, HEA In a bow Don t worry folks, it doesn t happen in this book but I can smell it coming, and I m not happy I have resigned myself to the fact that Shane and Claire are going to end up together Fine, okay But GOD All I ask is that we let Myrnin be that wacky, affectionate and very dangerous boss man that pops up and charms us all But alas, no Forget than unhealthy Ada obsession Forget that whole thing where his genius means he finds it incredibly hard to appreciate or acknowledge people Forget the fact that his fondness for Claire was something slow, and subtle that shocked everyone who knew him because it s so rare Because, here, look, a hard as nails and old as dust red headed chick who likes to punch things And now, ladies and gentlemen, Myrnin can flirt.No no, not his endearing rare warmth, or his witty and shocking statements that we all role our eyes at but secretly find hilarious No We ve been wrong for 13 books Myrnin s not socially awkward or damaged beyond repair He s healthy he flirts I don t care what back story they give these two or their interactions in the future I m disappointed that if this was the plan, that Rachel Caine would start this so late in the series I feel like Myrnin deservesthan a rush job HEA with a neat little bow If this woman is special enough that everything we know about this character goes out the window when we meet her than i would have liked to have at least heard about her in the past But it s too late for that now Rachel Caine, please pull this off Please For Myrnin
