Worth Living For

A Morganville Vampires short story that takes place between “Fade Out ” and “Kiss of Death“. It was included in my copy of “Ghost Town“.

Shane is asked by Mayor Richard Morrell and Chief of Police: Hannah Moses to keep a eye on Michael. What kind of trouble has Michael gotten himself into? And can Shane help him? More to the point, does he even want to?

This short story was told from Shane’s perspective. I like these little insights into Shane. I enjoy reading about Morganville through the eyes of another character, it’s interesting and helps me to understand not only Shane, but other Morganville characters, a little better. I enjoyed this story that focused on Shane and Michael’s friendship.

Murdered Out

This is a review of “Murdered Out” by Rachel Caine, a cute Morganville Vampires short story from Shane’s point of view (POV). It was included at the back of my novel “Carpe Corpus“, so I can only conclude that chronologically, that is where it goes also. You can also read it online here.

Shane and Claire have ventured out, a wee bit too close to darkness than is comfortable in Morganville. They’ve been to see a movie and are making their way home. Problem is, they don’t have a car, and the streets of Morganville are not safe at all. Night time belongs to the vamps, so it’s best that they get home quick. They’re going ok until Claire trips and injures herself badly. Shane decides its probably time for him to get a car…

I really liked this. It was cool to read a Morganville story from another character’s POV.
