Bite Club by Rachel Caine
Morganville is a quite college town where humans and vampires live in relative peace. But lately a great deal of blood is being spilt...
Having survived a number if adventures with her new night-dwelling friends, college student Claire Danvers has come to realise that for the most part, the undead just was to get on with their lives.
But someone else wants them to get ready to rumble.
There's a new extreme sport being broadcast over the Internet: bare-knuckle fights pitting captured vampires against one another - or, worse, against humans. Claire soon discovers that what started as an online brawl will soon threaten everyone in Morganville. And if they want to survive, they'll have to do a lot more than fight...
We all know that Morganville can have it's ups and downs from time to time. Especially after the sun has set, but this have just been turned up a heat higher in the Texas state, and things can only get worse, can't they?
When Claire is seated next to 'Stinky Doug' she doesn't like it one bit. He smells foul and Claire is pretty sure he's never heard of a good old shower or soap and water. Yet Doug is a really friendly guy, and she can't help but try to speak with him. Until he nicks some vials of blood from their practical lesson.
Soon later, Claire goes on a mission with Michael and Eve to win back the Vials before Doug gets seriously hurt, but when they reach his dorm room on the TPU campus and find him laying there dead in his room. It can only mean one thing.
Someone knew about the stealing of vampire blood, and they definitely showed no mercy.
Though on the other side of college, Shane finds a leaflet that has been dropped off at the house, which indicates that battles against Humans and Vampires will be held. To Shane's surprise, he is shocked that he is finally allowed to fight vampires, and that there is something to take his anger and stress out on.
Shane heads straight off to the gym to see what all the fights are about, but soon becomes too interested, and slowly starts too loose himself. Acting and taking his anger on not only the vampires, but his friends Claire and Eve and forms a giant hatred towards Michael.
Claire, sensing that something is not right, heads down towards Myrnin lab and seeks help in him, to find out what's happening to the town and who is behind the mysterious fights being held. Which leads to the question of one of the most dangerous people to ever walk through Morgaville, could be back. Bishop.
As Shane starts to get more violent, angry and jealous that Claire spends so much time with Myrnin he leaves the house and doesn't speak for weeks. Claire is in pieces and Michael and Eve have big news to share, but it will have to wait. Because as the three friends set off on one mission once again, and battle to possible death, it is clear that all they need to do is...Save Shane.
Soon the clues come clearer and Claire has all the help she can from Eve, Michael, Mrynin, Amelie and Oliver, and also Frank (Shane's dead dad) They all battle it out to save a friend, boyfriend and son, but all is on deadline as buildings blow up, Kim makes a special appearance and a mysterious woman turns up to Morganville.
Bite Club is the 10th book in the worldwide book series
'The Morganville Vampires'. Like all the other books in the series, this one does not fail to keep me entertained! You can always count on the books and Rachel Caine to write such wonderful stories, that take you to another world. Like your actually there in Morganville but watching from afar. The books will always keep you on the edge of your seat and wanting more, biting your nails and never daring to put the book down. Because there just so amazing! I have never read such an amazing book series (Apart from Harry Potter) But Morganville Vampires are right behind the HP's.
When it gets near the end of her books, it picks up the pace and you begin to wonder what will happen when you turn ever page. If you put the book down, it will leave you wondering what will happen next and hoping nothing will go wrong. There are times when the book actually make my heart beat faster, my mouth open in an 'O', say "Oh my god!", Gasp and all the other emotions available. I loved the book and found it wonderful and amazing, and I hope you do if you read it.
Although I don't think it was as good as the one before, but it was still brilliant!
I can always count on them to make me smile and laugh and I can never want much more from a book. So that's why I think the book is amazing, and people should go read it! If that isn't enough for a reason to read a book...then I don't know what is!
I would give Bite Club by Rachel Caine 9/10 :)
Enjoy, happy readers!
