She persuades Lou to help them move, but no sooner do the three arrive in Maine than another old friend calls them for help. His teenage sister has disappeared and he needs them to find her. They travel to Endover, New Hampshire, and find themselves in the middle of what almost seems like Zombie-ville. It doesn't take Maxie and Lou long to realise that there's a vampire around. Their previous experience with vampires has taught them that not all of the breed are bad, but this one seems to be a rogue. He's holding Jason's sister captive, has the town in his thrall and seems keen on killing Lou and capturing Maxie and Stormy. In the meantime, Stormy seems to be suffering from some sort of mental disturbance - could she have been possessed by some figure from the vampire's past? And who is this vampire, anyway?
Blue Twilight is a direct continuation of Embrace the Twilight, the story of Morgan and Dante. Shayne has now returned to finish the story of Maxine and Lou, who were by far the more interesting characters in Embrace the Twilight; in my review of the earlier book I mentioned my frustration that Max and Lou's relationship was left in limbo. Well, now, finally, three books later, Shayne has at last given us that closure. But only in part. Because the vampire, who calls himself the Prince, was introduced right in the prologue to the book and is clearly a fascinating character. We learn his identity in the final chapter. But we don't get his story here. For that, we have to wait for Twilight Prince, not available until 2006. And so, yet again, I'm frustrated by a Shayne novel.
At least I enjoyed Blue Twilight, so the frustration's not as intense as with Twilight Hunger, which I thought was poor. But still, I'm left feeling that - despite Lou and Maxie's relationship apparently resolved - I've been teased. The book felt short; a lot more could have been covered in here. We could have had the vampire's story too. Instead, we got half a book, and that's just not good enough.

The town of Endover is just plain weird. It's residents seem to be under a constant mind fog and even Max and her friends feel some strange dulling effect on their brains. When the vampire in question targets one of Max's close friends as "interesting" things start to get exciting. You're in for a good old fashioned vampire hunt - at least at first.
This vampire isn't like anything I was expecting though. Maggie Shayne gave me glimpses into his life and mind that make him an incredibly sympathetic character that plays looks to play a major role in a future book. He is devious and cunning and just a little crazy. He is an amazing addition to the vampires of the Wings in the Night series.
