    So after the first volume I knew that I had to rush and pick the next book up, sadly I had to wait a little while before rushing out and getting this book, but once I did I have no regrets. I had no idea I was going to enjoy this series so much. Claire has grown on me so much, and I am personally very proud of Shane, because within the last two books he has grown so much. He still keeps to his Shanish way's, but the fact that he isn't as immature as from the first book I really like that. There w So after the first volume I knew that I had to rush and pick the next book up, sadly I had to wait a little while before rushing out and getting this book, but once I did I have no regrets. I had no idea I was going to enjoy this series so much. Claire has grown on me so much, and I am personally very proud of Shane, because within the last two books he has grown so much. He still keeps to his Shanish way's, but the fact that he isn't as immature as from the first book I really like that. There were moments I was a little worried about his relationship with Claire, wondering to myself if he's using her or what's going on. And there was a moment in the third book, Midnight Alley, where I'm thinking, "He's showing his true colors now." But at the end of Feast of Fools I realized that he does actually care about her, very deeply. And handling the whole Michael situation is...well, he's working on it. As for Michael and Eve, I love them. I have no idea what's going on with Michael and what he feels and I wish that Rachel would go away from Claire and let us into Michael's head for a little peek because going from human to a ghost to a vampire it takes out a lot in a guy and I just want to claw into his mind and figure out his demons, basically. Eve, I was slightly disappointed that there wasn't more background with her, especially with her brother, but I do feel like her reaction towards everything he's done - or hasn't done, who knows - is very realistic. Now for each book: MIDNIGHT ALLEY was a fun ride. We finally get into a little bit about the town history and a little secret about the vampires, which you'd have to read to find out, and even the town itself. Morganville sits in a throne of secrets that you want to peel away by each brick and concrete and tree and house. I found the character of Myrnin a little unnerving and a little scary, because the guy is...colorful. I was a little scared for Claire thinking that Amelie, being a cold hearted vampire, was throwing her out because she has just very little regrade towards humans, but FEAST OF FOOLS explains a lot of things. Jason gave me goosebumps and not in the good way either. I didn't like him, I just wanted him to go away, and he just got worse and worse as he appeared. Monica, is Monica. FEAST OF FOOLS had me dropping my jaw in a lot of places. I feel like Rachel is doing a wonderful job with the pace of the novels, with the way things get revealed, and the cliffhangers she leaves. At first the books sound simple, but as you go from one book to the next, from one chapter to the next, you really get that there's a whole mess here. I like the comparison she used with the game of chess, though comparing lives to a game is a little unsettling, she does a good job of explaining things. Bishop I am curious about, especially with what we find out about him, which leaves me asking so many questions, which leads me to say that Rachel does a great job of answering things, but also an equal great job of leaving us with more questions. She leaves loose ends where they need to be, but ties enough things up at the end of each novel to leave you feeling like, "Okay, we solved one problem, let's move to the next one," which is something I think is important as an author. I'm sure Lauren Kate could pick up a few things from Rachel. Really, all around great book. Sexy, dark, mayhem, love, action - not enough words. You have to read it to really believe it.

The writing is really pretty great, if you ask me, and the vampires actually ACT LIKE VAMPIRES! LOVING that. All the characters (except maybe Claire, who is a bit of a Mary-Sue) are deep and well-rounded, and show a full range of emotions, not all of which are centered around the oh-so delightful female love interest. Everyone has their own partner, and no one's trying to steal them away (except that vamp bitch who put Shane on a leash... I SAID HE WAS A PUPPY, NOT A PROSTITUTE!!) I almost cried a couple times, when Myrnin went all sad and "I'm so sorry, child. I'm SO sorry." I'M SO SORRY TOO MYRNIN!!!!!!! If I could marry Myrnin (because *tear* Shane is taken...), I SO would. Oh, but I'm so afraid that there's going to be a triangle (or square, if you factor in Eve) between Shane, Claire, and Michael. Especially since she was saying how hot he was and all that crap. WHICH HE IS, don't get me wrong. Every time I pick up one of these books, I'm apprehensive. All I can think is, "Surely it wasn't THAT good." BUT IT ALWAYS IS!!!!! Haha, I cannot WAIT for the the next one!!!!!

Jason is a serious creep that should never be underestimated and Bishop is one hell of a big bad. 😳I am always on the edge of my seat with these two.

    MINIGHT ALLEY BOOK # 3 RATING : 4 SMEXI BOYS STARS!! I have just finished ‘Midnight Alley’, that was a great read, lots of excitement and twists in the storyline. I’m starting to get a clearer picture of where 7+ more books could be taking me. Claire has a lot of growing up to do in this book and not a lot of choices. Amelie has made it very clear where Claire’s allegiance lies. I’m not sure how that is going to all pan out for Claire, she has got herself in a rather deep hole with Amelie. Enter, n MINIGHT ALLEY BOOK # 3 RATING : 4 SMEXI BOYS STARS!! I have just finished ‘Midnight Alley’, that was a great read, lots of excitement and twists in the storyline. I’m starting to get a clearer picture of where 7+ more books could be taking me. Claire has a lot of growing up to do in this book and not a lot of choices. Amelie has made it very clear where Claire’s allegiance lies. I’m not sure how that is going to all pan out for Claire, she has got herself in a rather deep hole with Amelie. Enter, new character Myrnin. I kept calling him Merlin in my head, not sure why I had that annoying habit every time I read his name. Myrnin is an interesting character, very Jekyll and Hyde . I quite looked forward to reading about his character , he made me ‘feel’ for the vampires. Oooo!! The plot thickens, there is treachery , danger , secrets and lots of hot kisses . Oh dear Claire , what are you getting yourself into. She just keeps getting that shovel out and digging that hole deeper. Michael and Shane have to sort their friendship out. I was surprised at first by Shane’s reaction but then I thought about it and it made sense. I did ‘feel’, for Michael as it was not an easy path he chose. Let’s face it when you are halfway there but can only go forward, what would you do? Oliver has me scratching my head, he one minute wants to harm, next minute he is the hero. I have my eye on Oliver, what’s his deal? Poor Eve , her psycho brother Jason, he just keeps popping up and it doesn’t bode well for the campus girls when Jason is around, or is he misunderstood? I know he needs a bath . Have the humans of Morganville had enough of being preyed upon? I loved the title, ‘Midnight Alley’, it represents the story well. Poor Claire at the tender age of nearly 17, has a lot on her plate, secrets she must keep from those she loves or risk being snuffed out by Amelie. It feels like she has the weight of Morganville on her shoulders. And now!!!!........................well you will have to pick up ‘Feast Of Fools ‘, to read what Claire is confronted with, can’t wait to see how she handles this...lol!!! ( not that it’s funny) Time to crack open ‘Feast Of Fools’, as I just gotta know...... FEAST OF FOOLS BOOK #4 RATING: 4 DELIGHTFULLY DANGEROUS MYRNIN STARS!!! BOOK REVIEW: Mr Bishop has arrived with his 2 minions and he is not somebody to talk back to. This is a whole new level of Vampire. Michael is struggling with his new life and Shane isn’t going to play nice. Claire’s mum and dad are in for a rude shock when things are not what they seem .....and then some. I’m still trying to figure out Oliver and Amelie, are they friends or foe? Is Oliver playing nice or has he a hidden agenda? Michael and Eve are getting jiggy with it, leaving Shane and Claire in the ‘jailbait’, category. Definantly no jiggy, but hot smooches are allowed. Claire does not act,‘nearly seventeen’, she has taken on a much more maturer role. I now believe she is this gifted, intelligent girl, who is wasting her time with her regular course studies, she has something very special in the brain department. Amelie has steered Claire in the direction best suited to her intelligence, but it is a dangerous, unreliable, deadly direction. Monica is a true pain in the ass, so well written that you just loathe her character, but at the same time, I love reading what stupid thing she is going to attempt. What is Jason up to? He is very good at deception. I feel sorry for the boy/man he could have been. Shane has an admirer of the deadly kind and it’s peeving Claire off to no end. But what is a girl to do .....what is Shane to do? Claire is almost throwing herself at poor Shane, the restraint he holds, you have to take your hat off to him as a lot of guys would take what is being offered, without hesitation. Claire and her new sidekick are working desperately to answer the questions that are so badly sought. Things are changing around Claire and she must keep up before it is too late. I’m really liking, Richard Morell. He seems to be a good guy , a fair guy. Claire is seeking Amelie out, depending on her for answers a little too much. Claire is holding back a lot from her friends, secrets she must keep or bring down the wrath of her Patron. Mr Bishop is one creepy daddy. I am sure we will get to read a lot more about him and his scarey minions, Francois and Ysandre. I am really loving Myrnin’s character, you don’t know quite what to expect at times when reading as he is such an unpredictable character. He is in his own headspace and he beats to his own drum. The moments of clarity aren’t half as much fun as when he is dangerous and looking for a Claire Machappy meal. I loved the Masquerade Ball, visually it would look wonderful with the costumes , especially Shane’s.hee....hee. This was an ever changing read, lots happening. Many emotions the characters went through. Living in Morganville is like a pressure cooker situation, you just know something is about to boil over.

    I have been on a vampire kick lately. Both series are from my teenage years and it’s been such a joy to get back to these books! The Morganville Vampires was a series I never finished/stayed caught up and I’m sad about that. I don’t even remember where I left off. So reading them again has been like reading them for the first time because it has been many, many years. Now, I will start this off by saying these books are so trashy but in the best way!

Crazy things happen and sometimes the plot twist doesn’t even make sense time wise (like her parents selling their house and moving within like a week) nothing happens that quickly! But here’s the thing, I don’t care. I laugh and keep going because the plot is just so addicting! The vampires in this series are legit vampires. They drink blood and some times it can get pretty wild! (Oliver, I’m looking at you.) I’m not sure whether to hate or like the guy. There are many characters like this and you never know what team they are really on. Claire and her boyfriend’s moments can be quite cheesy but again, I don’t mind. I’m curious to see where their relationship will go as well as her other roommates. The plot in each book are addicting and can be fast paced. There are tons of plot twists and I stayed up late finishing this because I was hooked, ha. Overall, I am in love with this series again. This time I will finish it. If you like cheesy romance, vampires, and want a fun read, then pick this series up!

If you haven't check out the first two books, go check out now! ------- [SPOILERS ALERT] ----------------- I don't know why but I have this feeling that Claire and Shane are going to break up someday. Like for real but who knows? Because Myrnin seems soooo good and bad at the same time to Claire. I don't care he's old cause vampires don't grow old. They just stay perfectly where they are. In addition to their scary eyes, or should I say deep, dark and mysterious-sexy eyes.

I kinda envisioned her as someone powerful from the Iceland, like Snow Queen or something idk but it just did. And Michael. I hate his character. Because I can't see him trying at all. We all know that you're new in the vampire clan but work your ass off will ya? /ugh/ And I could say that Claire is obviously the star of this whole complicated story. AND CAN I SAY THAT I ACTUALLY THINK THAT CLAIRE IS AMELIE'S DAUGHTER /done ranting/ Fuh. Whatever it is. Can Shane and Claire work their 'things' off? Their romance is sooooo devastating. I'm tired of waiting for them to do something more than kissing.

    Books #3 and #4 were action packed (even more so than the first two). Really enjoy seeing how this town and the relationships develop. Minor clichés and annoyances aside, Claire is a pretty kick-ass protagonist.

My thoughts, I thought book number three, which is Midnight Alley, started slow for me then picked up around the middle to the end.

All t This is volume 2 of the Morganville Vampire series, which contains both book three and four in continuing series. My thoughts, I thought book number three, which is Midnight Alley, started slow for me then picked up around the middle to the end. I get that there were all these clues and little things happening to add to the mystery to the book and preparing me for what is to come, but I just found it slow and I was just thinking get to it already because nothing was happening in my opinion. All that seemed to happen was you found out that Claire was no a "slave" to Amelie after making Claire sing a contract in the previous book to protect her friends (especially Shane, the boy that she loves)then it just goes from there and she is forced to work with Myrnin, who is this crazy vampire, who is sick and slowly dying just like the rest of the vampires in Morganville, dying of this sickness, and its Claire job to find the cure. And it just goes from there, and the crazy interactions with Myrnin, who does seem to like Claire as she helps him along the way, but he is a little creepy, and isn't lucid half the time plus his vampire side takes over and wants to kill Claire, which Claire has to escape from his clutches. Anyway the book picked up around the point where Michael, Eve, Claire, and Shane crash Monica's party. Then it became exciting, and made me glued to the book at that point. Many things happen that night including a fight between Shane and a party goer, a girl being killed at the party with bite marks on her neck with Claire, Eve, and Shane finding Micheal holding her dead body and they think he killed the girl so they walk. Then three of them decide to walk home and they are attacked by not only a party goer, but by Jason, Eve's psychotic brother, and Jason winds up stabbing Jason in the stomach with his knife nearly killing him, but he winds up okay. After all that , though however briefly, gets settled then Claire gets a note from Amelie, saying that she wants her to work with Myrnin again and continue on the search for the cure. Come to find out, Myrnin, who is nearly ready rip out Claire's throat, that Amelie, what a witch, sent Claire to Myrnin so he could kill her like he did with his other assistants in the past with Amelie believing that Claire would be of no further use to her anymore. But Myrnin fights it, tells Claire the history of Morganville and the search for the cure for the vampire illness, hoping the humans in the town held the key, and so Claire survives and they begin to work on a formula for the cure together, thereby Claire helping the vampire population. Claire leaves then finds herself kidnapped by a couple of zealots, who believe all vampires should be killed, in order to lure Michael there so they can kill him. Of coarse Michael comes to the rescue with Oliver helping along the way killing the humans that had kidnapped Claire, which was slightly unexpected for him to turn up, but I knew Michael would have come up with a backup plan so that he and Claire were most assuredly survive. Then stuff happens with Monica, where she takes the drug meant to cure and help the vampires, and winds up on her death bed (Claire took the drugs too, but did no considerable harm to her while on them, making her clear headed during the high, but then hangover when it was over, but Monica has a fatal reaction). And that's when a doctor has to get involved to save Monica's life so Claire has to reluctantly give him the drugs and Myrnin's blood so he could test it to come up with a cure for Monica (with Amelie's permission of coarse). And Monica then survives, though even though she didn't really deserve to after everything that's happened between her and Claire. And then the end came, which was so surprising and didn't really see coming, though I probably should have. Claire's parents come to town, telling Claire they are moving to Morganville, which freaks out Claire out because she knows the dangers of living in this town, but what is scarier is the arrival of a new scary vampire named Bishop, wanting to see his daughter Amelie, and if he didn't he would kill everyone in the Glass household, and that's how it ends. At first I was like what, how can you end it there, and it intrigued me to as what was going happen in the next book with Bishop and just in general so I started on book four, Feast of Fools, right away, and luckily it was contained in this book. I have to say that I liked book four better than book three because more seemed to happen and to me there was more mystery and anticipation throughout the book that made me hunger for more especially leading up to the grand ball that happens in the end that is talked about nearly half the book, and while I was reading I was dying to see what was going to happen there because I knew it was going to be big and it didn't really disappoint and made me want more, and want to go the next book. But basically book four is more of the introduction of Bishop and his two cronies who he brought with him with thoughts of acting on revenge on his daughter and taking over the town of Morganville, which he believes has been totally been mishandled by his daughter, who is controlling life there where humans and vampires are living together in seemingly peaceful time with rules and regulations and blah blah, but Bishop believes that's not how vampires should behave and should rule the roost with them being their vicious selves by killing humans for their food and just being the rulers of the humans. And the evilness from him just oozes off the paper and gave me the creeps, knowing that he was that bad. And I thought Amelie was bad with her coldness and not seeming to care about the humans or anyone just wanting control over them, but how wrong was I, even though I still think Amelie can be pretty bad at some time as well as Oliver, but Bishop takes the cake. Bishop's two followers seem to have the same beliefs, and have no bones of hurting anyone and would if necessary, and the female vampire takes an interest in Shane, which Claire doesn't like at all. As well as the fact that her parents are in the house with this evil vampire and would be staying here in town with this lunatic, and she wants to protect them as much as possible while they want her to come home with them to live. The initial meeting isn't too bad threats aside as Amelie does finally come to the house to speak with Bishop to see what he's up to while everyone waits. Then Claire is working on the cure some more, and checking on her parents while trying to have a life as best as she can all the while this ball looms over everyone's head, which everyone is talking about and is meant to welcome Bishop to the town with getting more and more tense as time goes by. Shane is sent an invitation from the female vampire to attend, and he has to go (because later we learned she threatened to kill Claire so he had to go no matter how much he didn't want to and loathed to), and everyone else getting similar invitations as well with Claire left out of the loop, no one invites her, and Amelie even makes Claire promise no to go because she doesn't belong there. And she does, though she doesn't stick to it. Claire becomes closer to Myrnin and they seem closer to the cure with Myrnin getting more time of lucidity so he can have a normal conversation with Claire. This is where he learns about the ball and is determined to go so he could help Amelie out of the mess with her father, but Claire denies that he should go, saying he needs to stay where he was. There are some cute moments between Shane and Claire, who are trying to have a normal relationship as best as she can, but the female vampire always seemed to be around to mess it up, and the readers find out that she can control Shane and Michael and anyone else to do anything she wanted even if the person didn't want to, which freaks both Shane and Claire out especially Claire especially with Shane being forced to go to the ball with her because the female vampire supposedly wants Shane for herself, which scares Claire as I could imagine it would. But Shane and Claire do get a few minutes to themselves with some kissy moments that are sweet and passionate at the same time, though it doesn't go farther than that even though they both want to, but Shane wants to keep his promise to her folks that he'll wait until she's older and more ready for that type of relationship. They have one final date night before the big ball, knowing that that night everything was about to change and it was so sweet yet a little heartbreaking because I didn't know what was going to come and thought that made something would separate them in the end (though I hoped not). The ball comes and Claire is the only one not invited aside from Myrnin, who she decides to go visit, and Myrnin convinces her to go the ball with him so they can see what was going on and help if they could if things got ugly. So, she agrees getting all dressed up in a costume and ready to go with Myrnin to see what was going on. So, they go and the entire time I'm waiting with bated breath to see what was going to happen like Claire did. Everything was fine and calm no violence whatsoever, and it was going well until Sam, a vampire and Michael's grandfather, refuses loyalty to Bishop, who is asking for it, and when he doesn't get it then he asks for Sam's human date as his gift, but Sam refuses. Bishop lets it go, and then Michael goes up and the same thing happens, by this point Bishop is getting peeved, but he lets Michael go then Oliver comes up with Eve, who is his date, and Oliver refuses his loyalty, but instead of taking Eve away like the other two vampires there, he just leaves her there and walks away, and Bishop and his cronies are ready to take a piece of Eve, and Michael freaks out of coarse, but Sam holds him back from taking Bishop on. But Shane comes to Eve's rescue sick of the happens and so done with being the female vampire's date, which just add to the tension even more in the room and Amelie steps in too saying that Bishop can't have the human tributes because they are all hers and don't belong to him, which just rakes up the anger in the room even more. Then Myrnin and Claire are asked to approach with Myrnin telling Claire to get ready to act (Myrnin gave her all sorts of weapons that could hurt the vampires that were hidden under her costume). Bishop greets them, and Myrnin tells Bishop off while Ysandre (the female vampire) grabs Claire by the neck, wanting a piece of her. So, Claire attacked the vampire, burning her face and causing her to let go of Claire while Myrnin rushes Bishop and attacks him, cutting Bishop with a knife then ran with his knife off the podium and into oblivion leaving Claire behind. Bishop just laughs after Myrnin runs off saying that they were just having fun and says he'll forget everything that just happens if Amelie swears loyalty to him. Amelie refuses, giving him nothing, and replies that she will give him his book that he desperately wants (now I forget what book this is since I read the first two books in this series a long time ago, but have a vague recollection of it I just remember what's in it though I know it's important). Amelie refuses again. Bishop threatens the town if he doesn't get the book, which at this point Claire stands up to him, saying he needs to leave, which amuses Bishop saying she couldn't do anything to him because she has no power. Then one by one, people loyal to Amelie and humans too, stand up to saying that they all will make him go too. And that's when all hell broke loose and the fighting began among the people (Bishop had some rogue vampires in the hall too to back him up if needed). Jason is one of the first people attacked by Ysandre with her fangs biting his neck, and Amelie rushes over to help him, but Jason just laughs, mocking her and stakes Amelie right in the heart, but since she was an old vampire she would be hurt but survive. And the fight continues while Claire is attacked and knocked out by Ysandre then later wakes up on Shane's lap back at home. The city has gone on lockdown with Bishop now attacking the town, even burning founder houses to the ground. With vampires taking refuge in Michael's house. Claire goes to see Amelie, who still has the stake in her, but is pulled out by Oliver and Sam, and she wakes up very hungry. She tells Claire to leave before she attacks, but not before saying that she needs to feed. Come to find out that Bishop has burned all blood that the vampires in town drink with the only way blood could be supplied if people donated, which some people consent to do while Claire goes to place she knows there's extra blood stored, so she uses a key to form the portal back to Myrnin's lab (she learned how to use portals in book three, which can transport her to different places with a key that she has), and surprise surprise finds Myrnin there, making Claire furious for not only abandoning Amelie in her time of need, but Claire too. He explains that it was all part of the plan that he formed with Amelie, he was never suppose to stay at the ball that he was just the distraction and get a sample of Bishop's blood then leave. Claire finds out that Bishop is not infected by the same disease the other vampires are and is in fact his blood is the cure to the disease. Which just adds another twist to the plot, making me wonder why he is the cure in the first place and how did he get that way and why are all the vampires in Morganville so sick to begin with? Claire is about to leave when Bishop comes out of the shadows, he had been following Claire in order to get to Myrnin, and Bishop pushes her through the portal leaving Bishop alone with Myrnin. Eventually she gets back to the Glass house and confronts Amelie telling her that Bishop has Myrnin and that Bishop's blood is in fact the cure. Claire is furious that Amelie seems not to care except only how she could use them to her end, which Amelie replies that she cares and that she wants the survival of her people as well as humans, which is why she came to Morganville in the first place, but she would sacrifice everyone for it if it was enough, which it isn't anymore. Amelie asks for help among everyone, splitting their force so Bishop can't takeover the town, even showing the humans how to kill vampires if they come across one of Bishop's vampires. Amelie gives people their assignments with Claire needing to go with her. Shane pipes up and says that he's going with Claire (to protect her), but Amelie gives him another job, where he would be in charge of the Bloodmobile and the book that Bishop so desperately wanted, freaking Claire out finding out that Amelie planned to use Shane as bait and not caring that she was doing so. And that's how it ends, I was like really, you're just going to leave it there just like that, making me want to read more of what's going to happen. Luckily I have Volume 3 with books five and six so I can just continue on, and I did and am about half way through five right now, but still shocked that's how book four ended. But I guess that was the point. Anyway overall this series is okay from what I read so far, and I definitely want to read what happens next and I definitely want to with all these endings that just leaving you hanging, which makes you want to read more, but this series isn't my favorite of all time. Just at some points it seems a little slow in the beginnings working up to the finish at the end of the book, but just like okay where is this all going exactly. And I like the characters in the series, but I don't love them like I do in other books (though I do like Shane and Claire together I think they are cute together) I have read in YA. I don't I can't describe what it is that doesn't make me love the series as much as others I have read, it just doesn't have the same pull for me like others have in the past. With that being said I am curious to see what come next and what happens and if questions are going to answered or not so I will continue on with the series, and if my curiosity is peaked then I'll continue on if not then I'll stop. But with the cliffhanger ending I'll probably want to read the rest of the books in the series just to find out what happens even if I'm totally in love with the series or the characters.

    Such an easy read. Very easy to get through and can't wait what Bishop is really planning because it's always a game with them. A live chess board, with humans and vampires collide.

    MICHELLE'S REVIEW: MIDNIGHT ALLEY RATING : 4 SMEXI BOYS STARS!! I have just finished ‘Midnight Alley’, that was a great read, lots of excitement and twists in the storyline. I’m starting to get a clearer picture of where 7+ more books could be taking me. Claire has a lot of growing up to do in this book and not a lot of choices. Amelie has made it very clear where Claire’s allegiance lies. I’m not sure how that is going to all pan out for Claire, she has got herself in a rather deep hole with Ameli MICHELLE'S REVIEW: MIDNIGHT ALLEY RATING : 4 SMEXI BOYS STARS!! I have just finished ‘Midnight Alley’, that was a great read, lots of excitement and twists in the storyline. I’m starting to get a clearer picture of where 7+ more books could be taking me. Claire has a lot of growing up to do in this book and not a lot of choices. Amelie has made it very clear where Claire’s allegiance lies. I’m not sure how that is going to all pan out for Claire, she has got herself in a rather deep hole with Amelie. Enter, new character Myrnin. I kept calling him Merlin in my head, not sure why I had that annoying habit every time I read his name. Myrnin is an interesting character, very Jekyll and Hyde . I quite looked forward to reading about his character , he made me ‘feel’ for the vampires. Oooo!! The plot thickens, there is treachery , danger , secrets and lots of hot kisses . Oh dear Claire , what are you getting yourself into. She just keeps getting that shovel out and digging that hole deeper. Michael and Shane have to sort their friendship out. I was surprised at first by Shane’s reaction but then I thought about it and it made sense. I did ‘feel’, for Michael as it was not an easy path he chose. Let’s face it when you are halfway there but can only go forward, what would you do? Oliver has me scratching my head, he one minute wants to harm, next minute he is the hero. I have my eye on Oliver, what’s his deal? Poor Eve , her psycho brother Jason, he just keeps popping up and it doesn’t bode well for the campus girls when Jason is around, or is he misunderstood? I know he needs a bath . Have the humans of Morganville had enough of being preyed upon? I loved the title, ‘Midnight Alley’, it represents the story well. Poor Claire at the tender age of nearly 17, has a lot on her plate, secrets she must keep from those she loves or risk being snuffed out by Amelie. It feels like she has the weight of Morganville on her shoulders. And now!!!!........................well you will have to pick up ‘Feast Of Fools ‘, to read what Claire is confronted with, can’t wait to see how she handles this...lol!!! ( not that it’s funny) Time to crack open ‘Feast Of Fools’, as I just gotta know...... FEAST OF FOOLS RATING: 4 DELIGHTFULLY DANGEROUS MYRNIN STARS!!! BOOK REVIEW: Mr Bishop has arrived with his 2 minions and he is not somebody to talk back to. This is a whole new level of Vampire. Michael is struggling with his new life and Shane isn’t going to play nice. Claire’s mum and dad are in for a rude shock when things are not what they seem .....and then some. I’m still trying to figure out Oliver and Amelie, are they friends or foe? Is Oliver playing nice or has he a hidden agenda? Michael and Eve are getting jiggy with it, leaving Shane and Claire in the ‘jailbait’, category. Definantly no jiggy, but hot smooches are allowed. Claire does not act,‘nearly seventeen’, she has taken on a much more maturer role. I now believe she is this gifted, intelligent girl, who is wasting her time with her regular course studies, she has something very special in the brain department. Amelie has steered Claire in the direction best suited to her intelligence, but it is a dangerous, unreliable, deadly direction. Monica is a true pain in the ass, so well written that you just loathe her character, but at the same time, I love reading what stupid thing she is going to attempt. What is Jason up to? He is very good at deception. I feel sorry for the boy/man he could have been. Shane has an admirer of the deadly kind and it’s peeving Claire off to no end. But what is a girl to do .....what is Shane to do? Claire is almost throwing herself at poor Shane, the restraint he holds, you have to take your hat off to him as a lot of guys would take what is being offered, without hesitation. Claire and her new sidekick are working desperately to answer the questions that are so badly sought. Things are changing around Claire and she must keep up before it is too late. I’m really liking, Richard Morell. He seems to be a good guy , a fair guy. Claire is seeking Amelie out, depending on her for answers a little too much. Claire is holding back a lot from her friends, secrets she must keep or bring down the wrath of her Patron. Mr Bishop is one creepy daddy. I am sure we will get to read a lot more about him and his scarey minions, Francois and Ysandre. I am really loving Myrnin’s character, you don’t know quite what to expect at times when reading as he is such an unpredictable character. He is in his own headspace and he beats to his own drum. The moments of clarity aren’t half as much fun as when he is dangerous and looking for a Claire Machappy meal. I loved the Masquerade Ball, visually it would look wonderful with the costumes , especially Shane’s.hee....hee. This was an ever changing read, lots happening. Many emotions the characters went through. Living in Morganville is like a pressure cooker situation, you just know something is about to boil over.

    Synopsis from the back cover for “Midnight Alley”: Claire Danvers has pledged herself to Amelie, the most powerful vampire in town. But being under Amelie’s protection doesn’t offer much comfort when people start turning up dead, a stalker resurfaces from Claire’s past, and an ancient bloodsucker extends a chilling invitation for private lessons at his secluded home in Midnight Alley. To what end, Claire will soon discover—and it will give a terrifying new meaning to night school. Synopsis from Synopsis from the back cover for “Midnight Alley”: Claire Danvers has pledged herself to Amelie, the most powerful vampire in town. But being under Amelie’s protection doesn’t offer much comfort when people start turning up dead, a stalker resurfaces from Claire’s past, and an ancient bloodsucker extends a chilling invitation for private lessons at his secluded home in Midnight Alley. To what end, Claire will soon discover—and it will give a terrifying new meaning to night school. Synopsis from the back cover for “Feast of Fools”: In Morganville, vampires and humans have learned to live in relative peace, but the tenuous good-neighbor policy is abruptly turned on its head with the arrival of Mr. Bishop. The ancient old-school vampire is bad to the bone, and what he wants from the tow’s living and dead is unthinkably sinister. It’s only at the formal ball attended by vampires and their human dates that Claire realizes Bishop’s plan—and the elaborately evil trap he’s set for the warm-blooded souls of Morganville. This is Volume 2 of Rachel Caine’s Morganville Vampire series. This volume includes the 3rd and 4th books of the series: Midnight Alley and Feast of Fools. These books are also very entertaining. **Possible Spoiler Alert** “Midnight Alley” has Claire “bound” to Amelie via a contract and, therefore, at her every whim. She finally invokes the contract by sending Claire to the alley from Vol. 1 – you know, the alley everyone warns her about. Due to defects in the vampiric bloodline, Amelie needs Claire to help Myrnin create a cure. Kind of ironic actually….Amelie wants a human to produce a cure that will straighten out the lives of those that can and do harm the human race. Then you have Captain Obvious--::chuckle:: He has outed Michael as the newest vampire creation and has him targeted for extermination. Monica has apparently lost her mind in this book. She tries for a good portion of it to wiggle her way into Claire’s life. She invites Claire to go shopping, hang out, etc. but when the invitation for coffee is made into an ultimatum that could jeopardize Claire’s boyfriend Shane, the sanity of Monica is oh so clear. And to top off this book, Eve’s brother Justin has been released from jail and dead girls keep showing up, especially in, and around the Glass House. “Feast of Fools” introduces a newcomer to Morganville, one that’s not exactly welcome. Mr. Bishop barges into the Glass House, right behind Claire’s parents, and threatens the lives of everyone in the house that night unless they get Amelie to the house. Mr. Bishop is the father of Amelie and has come to steal the town right out from under her. We once again get to see Myrnin and his manic acts, Jason and his stalking abilities, Shane’s attitude, and surprisingly---an alliance between Oliver and Amelie. Once again, I was enthralled through both of the books. Rachel Caine’s writing style is fantastic. She brings a lot to the table and, at her own pace, brings things together. Each character seems to be interdependent on the rest of the characters, which doesn’t leave a lot of room for a definite hero or heroine. I like that Ms. Caine doesn’t coddle the characters either. The main characters are young adults (Claire, Eve, Shane, & Michael) that face typical teenage drama, along with adult-type drama/situations and even physical pain. This creates a solid plot without a lot of soppy or weak characters. I love the cliffhanger endings; it makes you want to do almost anything to get the next book purchased, borrowed, or checked out from the local library….. Which, of course, I didn’t do soon enough this time either---See posting on Vol. 1 at http://saphsbookblog.blogspot.com/201.... I read this book in less than a week and when I went to reserve the next Volume, it, of course, is checked out from the library until the first week of July. As from my Vol.1 review: The entire human population of the town lives in fear of the creatures that stalk them; some of them can even be out during the day. Leaving the town is possible but not advisable as the vampires can do some interesting mind tricks to you to make you forget the town—BUT—if you ever start remembering anything while outside the bounds of Morganville, they will hunt you down and destroy you. According to the author’s website, these books are suitable for Young Adults ages 13 and up, but be warned that there is mild swearing. Welcome to Morganville, Texas but make sure you don’t stay out after dark!

I read so much, I don't want to confuse the 6 books in the same storyline. Morganville Vampires Volume 2: Midnight Alley Midnight Alley. Just finished book 1 of 2 within 1 book: Midnight Alley. However, Midnight Alley, matured as did the characters. Development flows, makes total sense. Story evolves deliciously. These vamps are brutal, malicious, and the humans are almost just as bad. I like that it is a mix of ALL things. Dig? Claire had already made the "I sign my life away to protect myself and my friends" decision and signed the paper, Amelie is her Patron. Jason, Eve's psycho brother is out of jail, and now human's are dropping dead. Shane's dad has left town, but with a determination to return with an army to wipe out all vampires. Monica Morell is sucking up to Claire for status issues, and Claire accidently kills her by giving her the "red crystals" that clear up the world for her, and Myrninn. Apparently it is something that kills most humans... why not Claire? Also, Detective Hess has been kidnapped. But Detective Lowe is on it. The Fentons, the cop Fenton is the one who stabbed Sam, and was aiming for Michael, (Who is oh yes... a real unbreathing fanger now) had a group together with captain obvious, they kidnapped claire, and Michael came, had called Oliver (of all vamps) for backup - saved claire & killed the Fentons. Problem is Jason seems to be Oliver's new pet. Scary. Amelie has had Claire working with Myrninn to work to solve the disease that is killing the vamps, slowly and maliciously, from the inside out, until they die of madness and starvation. Myrninn finally lost his poor vamp mind & Claire is determined to solve the disease that is killing the Vamps. Oliver & Jason, stumbled into Myrnin's lab just as Amelie was teleporting Claire out, but they saw her, which means they may know about the lab's purpose. Claire has found a flaw in the formula and thinks she can fix it. Amelie sees no hope, but she is "feeling" the tragedy of the loss of her kindred Myrninn, she feels all is lost. I personally thing Claire will figure it out. She has the basic alchemy that opens portals, and caught the formulary error in the crystal making. She is working it out also to save Monica - who demanded some of Claire'es Crystals - she took a few and she convulsed and almost died. Claire is working overtime to save Monica's life, as Monica thinks it is intentional. Obviously, a breakthrough there would also be a breakthrough for the vampires. Good because it would help Michael, because even though he is one if them, he isn't really.... is he? =\ Also, Claire's parent's have moved to town, and so has Amelie's dad - Bishop - and in 1 paragraph, he seems to be the roiling type of evil that one wants to avoid like the plague. Morganville Vampires Volume 2: Feast of Fools Book 2 inside is Feast of Fools. I read the preface which is basically a recap of the first 3 books, that's all for tonight.

This does not mean that the problems are over, no she has to work with the most dangerous vampire in town Mirnyn, because she needs to find a cure to save all the vampires from loosing their mind. Mirnyn is very sick he has a clear mind only a limited time, in this time Claire has to speed up the time of learning alchemy by putting herself in danger from taking the red particles. Claire find out how sick the vampire are when Mirnyn gets "transferred" in a prison where all the the other sick once were hold not to harm the humans. Unfortunately the bars from the cell were not strong enough for Mirnyn when he was not in the right state of mind and it was hungry also. Claire had to work with him and fight for her life that time. He will always say to her never to trust him (she sees that with her out eyes, but i guess she like looking for trouble). 'Feast Of Fools' in this book Claire and her friends find out that Amelie is not the oldest vampire, Bishop is her father, which had caned into Morganville to get revenge on his daughter for stealing his book. He takes Claire and her friends under his control, messing with their heads.Everyone realizes that Bishop can be very dangerous when Amelie and Olive work together to save Morganville (i didn't see that coming. However this series how we know from the previous books is about the love between Claire and Shane, which it get a lot more steamer(THEY Both STOP WHY). However in this book Claire is jealous because one of Bishop vampire pet Ysandre wants Shane and she shows that right in Claires face (Shane try to escape but the vampire b. uses her powers to overwhelm him and to obey her with no will). This is an incredible book will keep you reading from the beginning to the end whiteout wanting to sleep. There are so many things happening that will not even thing about.

    This is a 2 in 1 book! Midnight Alley- 3 Stars-Its interesting how so many characters can make so many bad choices and mistakes. When I say this I am not just talking about the teenagers, and/or humans either. I felt this installment was pretty good on the plot side. The readers got to learn good pieces of information regarding the town and the vampires. What lowers the rating here is the characters themselves, like I said in my opening line they make bad choices. I see some character progression This is a 2 in 1 book!

I felt this installment was pretty good on the plot side. The readers got to learn good pieces of information regarding the town and the vampires. What lowers the rating here is the characters themselves, like I said in my opening line they make bad choices. I see some character progression, however its like one step forward and ten steps backwards. I feel like at this point Monica's character is useless, and should have been shut down by Amelie's character as soon as Claire sign the contract with her. It is ridiculous to continue the teenage feud when clearly there are better villains to focus on. Feast of Fools - 4 stars-This installment takes the series in a whole new direction, and leaves you wanting to read the next book. I have to admit Bishop's visit to Morganville takes the series off course and refreshes it all at the same time. I feel that Claire's character has really come a long way in this story, and I like it. However, I feel like adding her parents and Ysandre into this installment was a terrible idea. I still can't believe Amelie hasn't gotten Monica to leave everyone alone yet, she (Monica) drives me crazy. Myrnin's character gets a little more of a spotlight in Feast of Fools, his character is interesting to say the least. All in all it was a pretty good read.
