I’d like to say I’m spending this weekend with Myrnin, but I can’t since I already finished Daylighters, the final part of Morganville Vampires Series, yes, the final part, and now I’m a bit lost what to read next.
It’s been quite a ride, giving that there are fifteen parts of this series, and I would not be honest if I didn’t admit there were times I almost gave up, but just almost, as I’ve grown to love the citizens of Morganville, both human and vampires. And how could I not…
First of all, there is Claire. A 16 year old student, with brain sharper than a razor. She’s bullied by the town ‘princess’ Monica Morrel, and yet she manages to catch the bad boy Shane, get a weird spider-like vampire Myrnin to crush on her and gains the trust of the founder of Morganville, a vampire called Amelie.
Then there’s Eve…reckless goth girl with a mouth worse than sailor’s. Brave, rash fighter who loves Michael…who happens to be a ghost…Yeah, that can happen, at least if you live in Morganville.
And then we’re back to Myrnin again…an ancient alchemist with bunny-slippers with fangs. He’s weird with a capital W, half-crazy, holds the brain of love of his life in a can, has a spider called Bob as a pet and is of course quite drool worthy. He’s my favorite of them all…don’t know what it says about me though 🙂 .
I have given 4-5 stars to these books and I highly recommend that if you haven’t read The Morganville Vampires Series yet, you’ll start now…hey, you have weeks before the summer so what’s better than start a reading marathon with this awesome series!
Click on the image of the book and it will take you straight to Amazon 🙂 . And no, I don’t get paid for recommending these books, I’m doing it ’cause they are just that good!
Oh, and here are some great quotes from the series:
“Mornings are pure evil from the pits of hell, which is why I don’t do them anymore.” (Eve, Bite Club)
“He lives in a hole in the ground, dresses funny, and occasionally eats his assistants,” Eve said. “Define crazy.” (Eve about Myrnin, Ghost Town)
“You are so lucky I’m too tired to murder you right now.” (Bite Club)
“I’m still alive. And I’m still fabulous.” (Last Breath)
“Shane, honey, in Morganville, friends are the only things that keep you alive.” (The Dead Girl’s Dance)
“Unfortunately, mortal life is very fragile, and very short. Yours could be shorter than usual.” (Glass Houses)
