Michael and Eve are engaged. But not everyone wants them to be. A vampire and a human getting married? It’s ridiculous on a couple of levels, but they’re in love, and they want Morganville to know it. Too bad Morganville really doesn’t want to know about it. Poor Eve’s getting looked down upon, people are refusing to serve her in stores and she’s having a hard time of it all round. And to make matters worse, Claire has noticed Michael has been acting strange. And when a lady vamp calls around to visit him, Claire connects the dots, and the finished product is not to her liking. Not. At. All. What the hell is going on?
Claire has noticed other weird things. There seems to be a mysterious visitor to Morganville. And nobody has noticed him so far but Claire. And she’s not even sure of what she’s seeing herself. Most people (and vampires) are preoccupied with Michael and Eve’s Engagement Party. But when a message is delivered to the vampires of Morganville they begin acting really spooked. And when something spooks a vampire, you know it’s got to be pretty bad. What on earth can set a vampire’s fangs on edge? When vampires start disappearing, Claire and the others know it’s bad. Really bad.
I loved this one! We got to explore other character’s perspectives in this novel, which was cool to say the least. There were POV chapters from Claire, Amelie, Shane, Eve and Michael. I loved the storyline for this novel, and so many unexpected things happened! I really liked the little shocks along the way. I LOVED this one!
“Do forgive Mathilde. She’s not been the same since the French Revolution.”
“Yo. He’s turning kinda purple. I think you made the point.”
“I’m insane, not forgetful.”
“Well, I believe it’s time for a field test.”
