Today's review is on Fall of Night by Rachel Caine
If you look back and check out my review for book 13 you'll realize that though it didn't end with a major cliffhanger, it did leave me wanting to know what was going to happen next. Thankfully I didn't have to wait long to find out.
I think I have loved Shane from the very first book. It's not just his "bad boy" attitude, but all of the hardships he has suffered in his short life. He is the true "underdog". And though he is emotionally scarred, he will do anything to protect those he loves. Especially Claire. But under that smart mouth and quick reflexes there lies an insecure little boy with a heart of pure gold.
It's no secret that Shane has always had a jealous side, and that jealously got out of hand in the last book. Instead of believing Calire; the woman he wants to spend the rest of his life with, he choose not to. Needless to say, this created a big "bump in the road" in their relationship. So when Amelie let's Claire have the option to attend MIT in Boston she decides to go for it. But as the saying goes, you can take the girl out of Morganville but you can NEVER take the Morganville AWAY from the girl.
Wanting to live a "normal" life, Claire is excited to begin working with Professor Irene Anderson. She never expected that Anderson was actually Myrnin's previous assistant, and when the Professor takes an interest in VLAD she becomes confused. Enter the men in black suits, and all hell breaks loose. Thank goodness Shane followed her to Boston. (To watch out for her from a distance that is.)
The war between the humans and the vampires has begun, and it has started with Claire and her friends. This time though, they all may not make it out alive. Even with Oliver and Myrnin's help.
Now I can hardly wait for book 15!!

Claire never thought she’d leave Morganville, but when she gets accepted
into the graduate program at MIT, she can’t pass up the opportunity.
Saying good-bye to her friends is bittersweet, especially since things
are still raw and unsettled between Claire and her boyfriend, Shane.
Her new life at MIT is scary and exciting, but Morganville is never
really far from Claire’s mind. Enrolled in a special advanced study
program with Professor Irene Anderson, a former Morganville native,
Claire is able to work on her machine, which is designed to cancel the
mental abilities of vampires.
But when she begins testing
her machine on live subjects, things quickly spiral out of control, and
Claire starts to wonder whether leaving Morganville was the last mistake
she’ll ever make...
