Well, and after reading the first book, I directly jumped into the next ones…
Again a Story about Vampires?
Why, yes! But it takes a different turn. The Vampires from Morganville rule the city and sort of hide in Morganville. The normal people there know about the Vamps but cannot leave the town, because the Vamps keep them from leaving. The Vamps are kind of not so really nice, although they sort of live in a grey zone of Niceness. Meaning, there are some you would consider being not truly evil – just … well Vamps that think that are superior.
What about the characters that drive the story?
Oh this is the highlight in those books. The Main Character is Clair a 16 year old girl that is so smart that she can go earlier to College, and from all Colleges she choose the one in Morganville. This will change her live, forever! No turning back. She is often too smart for her own good, but she’s absolutely loyal to her friends, sweet and brave. A girl you like easily.
She moves in with Michael, Eve and Shane who are all 18 and live in Morganville since ever. They take Clair under their “wings” and they become friends, really good friend. Oh and one of them becomes Clairs first love..
Yes there is Romance and it’s sweet innocent and lovely, but it’s not too much, it doesnt’t drive the story but it’s there!
Actually, I enjoyed most the growing friendship between the 4 and all the conflicts they have. Honestly I would say that this Friendship is the most important part in those books and I truly love how those 4 kids are taking care of each other and become a family in between all those happenings.
But what about the plot?
The story circles around our 4 kids and their interaction with the ruling Vampires in town. They get drawn in the Vampire politics. Specially Claire’s smart brain is of interest, everyone wants to use her and she finds herself always in between and in the middle of everything. The Plot moves very quick and fast forward in those books and each books end with a dreadful cliffhanger. You grow with Clair and her friends during those books and you find yourself absolutely intrigued by all the things that are hanging in the air.
Who would enjoy those books?
Oh I think all people that enjoy a light, funny and quick Vampire story mixed with lot’s of friendship and sweet innocent romance, plus strong and developing characters! Like Vamp stories ? Then go ahead and pick them up!
Each book is a very fast read since the books are not big, so they are easily read in between and I highly enjoyed the series and definitely will read the next books!
