Date published: May 2nd 2011
Morganville, Texas, is a quiet college town where humans and vampires live in relative peace. But lately a great deal of blood is being spilled - not in a feeding frenzy, but for someone's twisted idea of entertainment.
After discovering that vampires populate Morganville - and surviving a number of adventures with her new night-dwelling friends - college student Claire Danvers has come to realise that for the most part, the undead just want to live their lives.
But someone else wants them to get ready to rumble.
There's a new extreme sport being broadcast over the Internet: bare-knuckle fights pitting captured vampires against one another - or, worse, against humans. Tracking the signal leads Claire - accompanied by a loyal group of friends and frenemies - to discover that what started as an online brawl will soon threaten everyone in Morganville. And if they want to survive, they'll have to do a lot more than fight...
Ok this book starts out with claire going to class and sitting next to a bot called sticky Doug, now reading how bad ths guy smelt made me feel sick...I was like ewwww!!!. In class they are doing experments on Vampire blood. by the end of it Claire has seen that stinky Doug has taken some of the blood. So yeah you have guessed it Claire had made it her goal to get the blood back to save stinky Dougs life.But it turns out a waste time when clarie and the guys turn up at Stincky Dougs room on campus to find him dead.this for some reason was worse then any other death she had come across because it looks like a human had done it, whic seemed a lot worse then when it was done by the vamps.
Later on Claire goes to see Myrnin at his secret lab, now i love this vamp, he is one of my favourite charaters. When claire was at his lab She seen Frank shanes dad, and id so forgot what had happened to him. Having his brain put in a jar so he could help keep the town running, I think the way Frank and Myrnin get on is so funny, argueing all the time. It did make me giggle.
I was kinda shocked with this book, because normaly Claire takes control but in this book it was Eve, goth Eve who normaly breaks down and crys like a little girl takes charge.. Eve and Oliver had were fencing and i was happy to say Eve all most got the better of Oliver. i was like yay Eve.
While all this is going on Shane starts going to a gym run by vamps,starange things start happening to him and he starts being angry all the time. Turns out the vamp running the show gives Shane protine shakes filled with a secret ingrediant. but i wont spill and tell you what..In this book there is more then one enemy.In fact the are human and vamp enemys, you will be shocked when you find out who they are. This books ends with Shane and Micheal in a cage fight against each other. Who will win, lol...
Im going to stop right there before i spill to many beans, just know that this book is well worth the read,so many ups and downs, you will love it...I all so loved that half this story was told by Shanes point of view, so you knew what he was going through when taking the protien shakes. Ans when he ended up hurting Claire.
This book was filled with action right from the start and I love this in a book, I will say that this book was more emotional then the others, there was a couple of bits that made me want to cry. I didnt think this book would be as good as it was because the last one was a bit of a let down. But im happy to say this one surprised me. I think this one could be up there as one of my favourites in the series.
Ok i dont normaly do this but im going to give you a little teaser, now if any of you follow my tueasday teasers you will have read it all ready, but it got such a big reaction i thought id share again with you guys who didnt see it....
" She reached for Michael's arm for support. Something flared hot in Shane's eyes. "That how it is?, you and Claire?". Shane asked. Not surprised, man. Every girl i ever knew ended up liking you better then me. " Its all most like you set out to make it happen."
Now all of you that read these books will be going NO!!!!!!!! . you have not just done this to me lol.
