The first rule about Fight Club: You don’t talk about Fight Club.
The same should go for the vampire version – Bite Club. You know, I wasn’t sure that Rachel Caine’s Morganville Vampires series could get any better than it did in the last book Ghost Town. But I was shockingly surprised.
In book 10 of the series, Shane is having his usual anger management issues, but they seem to be worse than normal. He’s attacking Michael for no reason. He thinks Claire is cheating on him with Myrinn, and he accuses Eve of being a fang banger. Jeez, Shane take a chill pill would you? But as it turns out, his anger has only been amped up because of a vampire named Glorianna – or Glory for short – and this protein shake that contains vampire blood.
Oh, and did I happen to mention that the reason his anger has been hyped up – along with a few other members of Morganville – is so not only they could be in vampire version of Fight Club, but because Bishop needs an army to fight for him as he tries to take over the town again.
Wait. Bishop? The big badass vampire from five books ago? The one everyone thought was dead?
Yeah, apparently, he wasn’t dead. Amelie kept him alive but locked up without blood. Dude. That’s just… *shakes head*
Thankfully Bishop’s rise to power again is short lived, thanks to Myrinn killing him with airborne silver nitrate. And as for Myrinn, I still think there is something going on there between him and Claire. Or at least, he wants something to happen between them. I don’t know, it could just be me reading too far in between the lines.
And then Michael and Eve are getting married! WHAT?! And what’s with Michael not being too overly ecstatic about this? Something is up there. Also, Claire rejecting MIT – the dream school she’s wanted to go to forever – what was up with that? Yeah, she would have to leave Morganville, but c’mon girl! It’s your dream! You can’t forsake those just because you don’t want to leave Shane and the others.
Final Rating: 4 out of 5 stars. Not as good as the last one. There were some plot points I wasn’t too ecstatic with, but still really good considering it’s the tenth book in a series.
Bookshelf worthy? Electronic only.
