Just received in the mail. Can't wait to start but oh so sad when I found out that the series will end with book #15.

Wow! Another in a series of 14 books that you can't put down and then when your at the end and least expect it a total twist is thrown at you! The 15th book is suppose to be the final book but how after the ending I just rad is she going to be able to wrap this incredible tale up in one book. The whole story was blown up I the last sentence of this novel. I literally screamed!!! No way, read it and see !!! It amazes me that after 14 books each one keeps you enthralled and dedicated to reading this series. I've read a lot of series and some just lose the story not Morganville Vampires. Rachel Caine continues to bring fresh , exciting story lines to her books when you think she has thought of everything and there's no where to go, but there always is and she does not disappoint. Except in that the next book, #15 is reported to be the final book in this series, I will be so sad! ( )

It was great to see the Morganville folks in a different setting and interacting with different people. It was a way to see familiar characters in a different light.

But, naturally, Morganville is never far, and Clare finds out that she hasn't escaped it at all, and that she might have gotten herself into something even worse. ( )

Great fun with the Morganville gang when they Claire leaves home and heads for Boston. Where Claire goes trouble follows. She is finally at MIT her dream realized. Sometimes our dreams turn out to be nightmares. Everything is not what ti seems which it the way of the world. The hidden dangers strike, and some of them will not come out okay. It's all Claire fault, she may lose it all. Her research, her love and maybe her friends lives.
It was fun, edge of my seat squirming action and several ahhhh, moments. The finish was one big cluster of Omg, cliffhanger. ( )

Review courtesy of Dark Faerie Tales

Quick & Dirty: Dark, funny, action-packed drama. Be prepared for a seriously crazy cliffhanger.

Opening Sentence: The billboard at the border of Morganville hadn’t changed since Claire had first driven past it on the way into town at the tender age of sixteen.

The Review:

Fall of Night is the penultimate novel in the Morganville Vampire series. This is the first novel in this series that I have read but I have read Rachel Caine’s Weather Warden Series which I thoroughly enjoyed. As someone who has never read this series before I was never lost in what was happening in the story, I do wish that I had a better understanding of the overall story. One day I will go back and read the rest of this series from the beginning. The first half of the story was a little slow, setting up what Claire in doing in Boston, but when all Hell breaks loose the story is non-stop action until the ending. Fall of Night could have been a standalone story up until the crazy cliffhanger ending!

This story starts with Claire leaving Morganville. She wants to get away and see if she can make it in the real world without all the vampire madness. She also wants to step away from her boyfriend Shane. She wants to know if what she feels for him is real and also to kind of torment him for some bad decisions he made which included not trusting her. Claire is going to MIT in Boston for an independent study program. She wants to use her smarts to create something good.

Shane just can’t let Claire go without backup so he secretly follows her up to Boston. For someone who doesn’t want Claire to know he is there, they seem to make the same friends in the big town of Boston. As many times as he wants to jump in and let Claire know he is around, he understands that Claire wants her space, to be her own person.

The reason Claire is in Boston is to perfect a machine that she has been working on. A machine that in my eyes could only be used for bad. I’m not quite sure how Claire never saw it that way. As soon as she described it, I was like “Oh great, this thing is nothing but bad.” Enter the Daylighters, an organization that wants to destroy all things vampire. You can kind of predict that everything goes downhill from here on out.

Some major players and key characters added to the story are Professor Irene Anderson, Jesse and Pete. I absolutely loved Jesse. A vampire who seemed to be in control of her powers and was great in all situations. Her interaction with Myrnin was cute and entertaining. It had me laughing.

I really enjoyed reading a Rachel Caine book again. I could tell it was her style as soon as I started getting into the story. I felt like I was actually in Boston with Claire and Shane. The descriptions and dialogue are engrossing. I would definitely check out the rest of this series.

I will say since this is the first time I am seeing this world, I don’t know for a fact how true the characters are to themselves and how they have been since the beginning. Claire was tough where she needed to be (confronting a stalker and a nasty professor caused some really funny scenes) but I did think she was naïve. She couldn’t possibly think her weapon would only be used for good. Shane was an idiot for following but thankfully she ended up needing his help or else I don’t think that would have been good for their relationship. The book did alternate between Claire and Shane’s POVs.

Overall, Fall of Night is dark, funny, action-packed and filled with some serious drama. My jaw dropped during that crazy cliffhanger. So be prepared to have the last book on hand, Daylighters. I’m trying to avoid spoilers but I really want to know how this series ends but I would like to read it from the beginning first.

Notable Scene:

She picked up the hot pie and was walking back with it when she spotted the creepy Professor Davis sitting at an outdoor café, enjoying a coffee with a girl young enough—again—to be his daughter. She looked captivated, too. Starry-eyed and naïve, and willing to believe that Professor Davis was that missing daddy figure in her life that would solve all her problems.

Claire couldn’t resist.

She changed course.

Dr. Davis and his new conquest were so into each other—or at least, she was breathlessly into him, and he was enjoying it — that it took at least a full minute for either of them to notice Claire when she paused at their table. Dr. Davis even pushed his coffee cup toward her, as if she were the waiter, before looking up in annoyance, then confusion, and then – gratifyingly –worry. He straightened up in his chair, and she smiled at him.

What would Eve do?

It was easy enough to channel her best friend’s talent for snarky destruction.

“You’re not returning my calls, Patrick,” Claire said, in her best injured, pouting voice. “I thought you were going to come by to talk about our problems.”

“Claire,” he said, which was an obvious and rookie mistake; it meant he knew who she was, and she saw the chagrin settle over his face as he realized it. He turned toward the girl he was with, no doubt to protest his innocence.

Claire didn’t give him the chance. “I ran into your wife at the mall and she says she is not going to give you a divorce, so what am I supposed to do about the babies? Just you wait. I’m going to make sure you step up and be a good father to our twins! You promised!”

She didn’t wait to see the results of the bomb she’d thrown; she just held her head high and walked on with the pizza and didn’t look back. She didn’t have to. The scrape of the girl’s wrought-iron chair legs on pavement, and Patrick’s injured, wounded protests were as good as any picture. It might not matter, and probably wouldn’t; she’d torpedoed one date, but he’d have another one tomorrow, or the next day.

FTC Advisory: New American Library/Penguin provided me with a copy of Fall of Night. No goody bags, sponsorships, “material connections,” or bribes were exchanged for my review. ( )

You can take the girl out of Morganville but you can't stop Morganville from following her. This book was a roller-coaster. I can't even type coherently about it. What I do know is Shane is like the best boyfriend ever! I mean he messes up plenty but he loves Clare so much. Myranin(sp) is like my favorite vampire ever, okay maybe not ever but he's definitely top 10. His selective crazy fascinates me. Now if only [b:Daylighters|15746882|Daylighters (The Morganville Vampires, #15)|Rachel Caine|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1364106081s/15746882.jpg|21437968] was out so I can find out what the heck is going on. Holy cliff hanger Batman! ( )
