'These books are addictive' Richelle Mead, author of Vampire Academy
About the Author
Rachel Caine is the author of over thirty novels, including the bestselling Morganville Vampires series. She was born at White Sands Missile Range, which people who know her say explains a lot. She has been an accountant, an insurance investigator and a professional musician, and has played with such musical legends as Henry Mancini, Peter Nero and John Williams. She and her husband, fantasy artist R. Cat Conrad, live in Texas with their iguana Pop-eye, a mali uromastyx named (appropriately) O'Malley, and a leopard tortoise named Shelley (for the poet, of course).

Daylighters is the last book in the Morganville series and it is brilliant, as it has lots action and I never got bored. However, I did miss the different points of view from the previous books as I really liked seeing what others were thinking.
As this is the final book I can't help but look back as see how much the characters we first met in Glass Houses have changed and grown as people. Especially Claire, as she has developed into a strong, independent woman. This is really shown in Daylighters, as she has to deal with the grey area of doing what is right by trying to free the vampires, even though the humans feel safe and secure. Also, the other characters, particularly Shane and the rest of the Glass House, have developed as they are willing to stand up to the vampires and for what they believe in and I have loved getting to know them.
I am sad that this series has ended as I have really enjoyed reading them but at least it was a good ending and we got closure. I would recommend The Morganville series to anyone who likes YA paranormal books.
So Claire and her friends return to Morganville after their brief stint in MIT. They've returned with an extra person too - Jesse the vampire we met in the previous book, which I was pleased about as I really liked her.But now they are back they are in for a shock- the Daylight foundation has taken over. All the vampires are being held in an 'enclave' although it sounds more like a sophisticated prison camp. The humans finally have the freedom they craved, but just what are the Daylighters going to do with the vamps. Whatever it is Claire knows it can't be good. Not wanting to choose sides she has to figure out what is right and what ultimately will bring about the most peaceful future.
I read most of this book this morning in one sitting and was totally hooked, it's a bit more moral than the rest, makes you think about what makes one persons life more valuable than another but the book isn't preachy or trying to tell you what to think, it just makes you stop and wander.
Having read this far, as I'm sure every Morganville fan will agree, it is impossible to choose a side. I love Claire, Shane and Eve, even Hannah Moses is cool and a mix of other background characters would be friendly neighbours. But then I also love Amelie, Myrnin, Oliver, and a host of other vamps.Read more ›
Daylighters was a very fitted ending. Morganville has changed a lot since Claire first arrived but its just changed again. Now Claire has got to work out which side is good and which is bad. Or is there a difference.
Arriving back in Morganville our gang realise there has been some major changes. Huge changes. The daylight foundation have got their claws into the Morganville residents. Even Hannah Moses. Our gang need to find who is on their side and quickly. They quickly separate the humans and the vampires. Splitting up Eve and Michael.
The changes the characters have gone through, they have grown and adapted. They have had to as their town has changed. The town of Morganville is now run by Fallon. Who believes all vampires need releasing from their curse. He is not giving them a choice. He gives them the cure or they die. But the cure isn't a 100% effective. It kills more than it cures. He has the vampires all in an old mall with shock collars on. Claire to the rescue again, with the help of her crazed boss Myrnin. He was and will always be my favourite character. He is the poster ad for can crazy!! but can't help but root for him. Some how the shock collar doesn't seem to effect him like the others and he finds a way out and gives Claire advice.
Glass house is special, it is alive. It helps the residents who live there and the founder as it is a founders house. It has saved them so many times. Claire risks her life to save the founder when the hell hounds, one of the hell hounds is very familiar to Claire, are after her blood.Read more ›
