Series Saturday – The Morganville Vampires by Rachel Caine


This series has come to the big end and I’m sad to say goodbye. I love vampires and it was such a surprise for me to discover this young adult that actually made great vampires. Usually vampires books are more about sex and seduction, but this was completely different and the plot made me follow purely for Claire, a human. Can you imagine a town ruled by vampires and everyone knows and accept them? Rachel Caine did it and it was such a rush to discover the new adventures in each book of the Morganville series.

When I started this series there were about 10 books already out and I was afraid to like and had to read all those, but they are fun and quite a fast reading. Everything happens and you can’t wait to find out so rush into this series. My favorite person was Claire and the book started with her discovery of the vampires and starting to deal with them. Morganville is not an easy town and everyone has their purpose, but Claire moved to university and had no idea in the nightmare she was getting into.

For me the covers had a tremendous improvement and I liked the changes because they showed different sides of the story and made us see more of those characters. Like Michael for example, he’s a new vampire but his character changed quite a lot in the series and the covers helped notice the different sides of him. Another thing that I loved was the multiple POV, in the first few books we only get Claire, but later on is possible to see what Michael and Shane are thinking and this helped shed some light on their feelings.

Another thing that changed during this series was romance, because at first things were more normal and dangerous but I think Shane and Claire are great together, they suffered a lot for the relationship and it’s clear things are not perfect but they have potential to make this more real and less teenage dream.

Rachel Caine has released this week the last book and Morganville is over for now, because there’s a rumor about some web episodes going on and also several novellas to know more about some moments and get to know better some stories. Claire has been through a lot during this series and it was nice to see a closure.

Have you read this series or are you in the mood to give it a chance?
