I'm still in love with this series and as always, the latest installment has me salivating for the next. Fall of Night picks up where Bitter Blood left off - Claire is leaving Morganville for the elite halls of MIT and a personalized graduate program. Things are different, exciting, and a little bit terrifying for Clarie in Massachusetts. Her roommate is an old high school friend, but comes complete with a crazy stalker. And Claire can't completely escape Morganville - her professor is also from there, and when they begin to work on Claire's invention, things quickly get out of control.
There was something refreshing about the latest Morganville Vampires book... the setting. We're taken out of Morganville and transported to MIT - new characters, new plots, new experiences - a breath of fresh air! And while I really enjoyed the new experiences Claire was facing, I also loved that she couldn't really escape Morganville. Her professor hails from that very town and it really demonstrated how the vampire world is much bigger than Claire originally thought. Who knows what other places Claire might find herself in in the future.
The most exciting part of the novel to me was Claire's relationship with her old friend/roommate, Liz (who seemed to have some sort of personality disorder, maybe?) and her crazy stalker. This guy was seriously creepy. Of course, Claire's work on her VLAD device was also interesting to read about. If I lived around vampires, I could see the benefit of a device that would hold off attack. Think of how profitable that device would be!
I don't want to give anything away, but I will just say I really liked how Shane was in this book. That's all I'm going to say about that. I can't wait to see where the next book takes us! I'll be waiting eagerly for Daylighters, due out this fall!
