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 out-of-town signal leads Claire- accompanied by a loyal group of friends and frenemies- to discover that what began 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...
When I saw this book my mouth dropped. I couldn't believe that it was out already, after finishing Ghost Town a few months before I was prepared to wait a lot longer then I did for Bite Club to come out. But there it was looking unread and beautiful that I just had to buy it. I finished it and I couldn't believe what transpired throughout the book. There were times I was completely taken by surprised and times I wanted to scream and shout and just throw the book across the room, but it got better and I found myself smiling as I read the last page. And here I sit writing this review and anxious to get my hands on the next book in the Morganville Vampires series, Last Breath!
Plot - ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ The plot didn't differ from the earlier books and I was so happy that it was as the books before it! You never want to see a book series that you've love from the beginning to change right at the end, never! And like I said before I'm super glad that Rachel Caine didn't change a thing!
Writing - ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ The writing hasn't really changed at all and I'm glad that it hasn't. I like Rachel Caine's writing style, it's very addicting and you never, ever want to put the book(s) down!
Characters - ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ Claire is back along with Shane, Eve, and Michael for an all new and deadly, if your not careful, adventure! Things have grow back to normal, but now a new gym has been started up and Claire doesn't know if this is good, or bad. Is it good, or bad? Well you'll just have to read the book and decide that for yourself.
Claire Danvers - Claire is a 17 year old college student living in a town that is infested with vampires. Now all vampires aren't all bad, but Claire has been known to trust the wrong kind of vampires, hell even some humans can't be trusted in Morganville. It's all about survival in this town and you can't throw trust around like it's free money. Claire has learned this the hard way and she finds herself taking her time in figuring out who she can trust and who she has to keep an eye on because you never know you might end up beginning someone's meal!
Shane Collins - Shane has a hatred for vampires that would shock a lot of people. Things happened many years ago that he would love to forget, but can't. His family was torn apart by the thing he despises most in the world: vampires. A gym has opened up and its for learning to defend yourself against vampires, and Shane can't wait to join. After joining this gym and take secret 'special' classes Shane begins to act different, like he was before: distant and cold. Claire isn't to keen on letting Shane out of her sights after he begins to at strange and not like himself. Claire doesn't know whats up with Shane and his mood swings, but she sets out to find out just what is wrong with him and turn him back in the Shane that everyone loves!
Eve Rosser - Eve is gothic and she loves it! She doesn't take anyones crap, not even Shane's. Eve is ready for life to settle down so that she and her boyfriend, Michael Glass, can focus on their relationship, but as you well know there will be none of that in Morganville. Trouble starts up again and the whole Glass House gang sets out to find the trouble and end it, permanently. New and old enemies show up and Eve isn't sure that Morganville is going to last this time around!
Michael Glass - Undead rocker and all around american boy. He is a Morganville native, born and raised. So he knows when things go bump in the night and that's not on account with the bat like ears and sharpened eyes of a vampire. He, like Shane and Eve, have lived in Morganville for far to long to not know what's going on and who's doing what, even if it's something they shouldn't be doing. When trouble starts up yet again and Shane is acting weirder then usual, Michael knows that somethings about to go down and that it might be more then he, Claire, and even Eve and handle.
Myrnin - He is Claires undead boss and the mad scientist behind how things run in Morganville. He is brilliant, but also mad and Claire finds herself always fearing when she goes to work, because one day she might find him mad as ever and out of his mind and ready to bite into for a little snack.
Overall I give this book ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ - no more and no less!
