---> WARNING WARNING WARNING <---

[image error]

Dear friends,

With the release date of the 10th Morganville installment coming up, I’d like to take this opportunity to apologize officially – in advance – to all of you for my upcoming behavior during the next few days. With a probability bordering on certainty, Bite Club will turn me into a total fangirl. There will be squealing, there will be flailing, there will be lots of Oh-My-Gawds and sexual innuendo...more

I wonder if this would work?

Dear Rachel Caine,

I really loved Bite Club but I notice an error (or rather a few) in it. I don't know if you did it or some out of their mind editor but there was only one nekkid Shane scene and by that I mean Shane getting nekkid scene. How could that happen? Are you trying to drive us crazy? Now I know how much you love your fans and hate to see them unhappy so I thought of a solution to make it all better. In Last Breath you should include a nekkid Shane scene in...more

I just finished Ghost Town, did NOT want it to end. This is by far my favourite series, can't wait for this one! Sooo far away.

***SPOILERS AHEAD. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.***

Ok people, rant time.

So I managed to go through 9 books (plus many other short stories) of MV without even getting remotely bored. Do you have any idea how big that is to me? I cannot start a series that has over 10 books. It terrifies me. I know that I will end up being bored, it’s just my nature. MV, on the other side, is extremely special. The books are short, to the point and super-fast to read. That’s why I love them so much.

And then something had...more

You know, every time I read one of these books, I never know what to say that I haven't said before. I feel like a broken record. Morganville Rocks. Morganville Rules. Rachel Caine is a freaken genius. I love, adore and worship this series etc etc etc...Broken record right?
So, since I've said it before, I guess I'll just say it again.
I love.this.series!!!

Bite Club is another mind boggling installment! I don't know how Caine does it, but her story-lines are so freaken fun and brilliant...more

After ten Morganville installments, I’ve yet to be disappointed with any of these books by Rachel Caine. Quite the opposite actually, I get more and more hooked with every book, and I end up kicking myself for burning through them so quickly because the wait is pretty painful, hence the intense fangurling that precedes each release.

There’s so much I adore about these books including the friendship between the Glass House residents Claire, Shane, Eve and Michael; the twists and turns each book ta...more

UGH curse you Rachel Caine for not getting Claire and Myrnin to hook up!! aadfhaskjfhaslkdjjhf!!!

Hmmm okay so now that that's out of the way what can I say bout Bit Club, it was not as great as the others but I still read it in a day and will no doubt be reading the next one. [I only wish it had more crazy Myrnin *enter dreamy sigh*]

Okay so it was weird seeing in Shane's POV but I quickly got used to that, to be honest I'm really pissed of at Shane. He's annoying me so much. He needs to get ov...more

Still loving the series and characters in Morganville. I didn't give 5 starts because it seems this book was hastily written - there were a number of plot holes and mistakes. However that didn't stop me from finishing the book in a couple days. I did like seeing the world from Shane's POV, but I think Rachel did that so the readers wouldn't hate him. I wouldn't have minded hating him for a couple chapters - I think it would have added more conflict and tension overall. I do hope she continues th...more

In this tenth installment of the Morganville Vampire series, Shane gets himself into a heap of trouble. He joins the new gym in town and gets involved in a human/vampire fight club. Shane is glamored into joining the fight club, but his vampire killing impulses make him an easy recruit. He alienates himself from his friends as he gets sucked into fighting these high stakes matches. The baddies behind these Immortal Battles need to be taken down in order to save the town and Shane’s life.

Even vampires make mistakes. This is a lesson everyone in Morganville learns hard in this latest installment. Past decisions come back to bite them all in the rear end, as issues that should have been resolved have not been. Someone has started a new extreme fighting ring, pitting humans against vampires in the ultimate bloody showdown. Things hit closer to home than Claire could have ever realized when Shane starts slipping through her fingers and becomes the latest target. She'll have to convi...more

Another fantastic addition to The Morganville Vampire series. I say that over and over as I have gotten through each book, but they are so fun to read. They are so different from other "vampire" books. They set a new standard in the vampire book world and I can't tell you enough how AWESOME they are.

Once again Caine has made this story come alive with new developing drama, a few new characters and unexpected turns that will make you ask yourself how in the world did I not see that coming! It's b...more

After my excitement of receiving this book in the mail died down from an extreme happy dance, I quickly started devouring the latest installment in the Morganville Vampire series. I wanted -- no needed-- more of the cast of characters and their constant struggle of vampires and humans coexisting together in one town.


In Bite Club, we get to see previous characters reappear, a new setting for the characters to immerse themselves in, and more obstacles for them to overcome. What I absolutely loved...more

Some spoilers mentioned...

Something is always brewing in Morganville or Nowhere, Texas. In Bite Club, Claire’s having an unusually ordinary day on campus until she witnesses her lab partner steal vials of vampire blood and then later finds him dead. The mystery starts there and then quickly unravels into chaos.

Bite Club delves wonderfully into Claire’s Boyfriend, Shane Collins, and all his dark, misunderstood and repressed tendencies. He’s a bit of ticking time bomb and woven brilliantly into t...more

I’ve always been a big fan of the Morganville Vampire series because I happen to live in a middle-of-nowhere Texas town. I can relate, I practically live in Morganville, my town even has the “-ville” ending in it.

Basically the scenario in this book is pretty fierce, a fight club between vampires and humans–friends are put against friends. And who do you think gets recruited into this club?

After reading the tenth installment in this series, I feel this book is my least favorite. Not, just because...more

When Bite Club opens, the guys are excited about the new gym opening in Morganville, Shane especially, since they’re offering martial arts. It’s vampire owned, with vamp and human members. Shane loves it and starts spending more and more time there. He’s also getting angry – fast and mean. He’s picking fights with Michael, Eve, and even Claire. The angrier he gets, the more time he spends at the gym, where Gloriana’s been hanging out. It doesn’t seem to matter that she’s a vampire, Shane can’t s...more

urg! I love these books so much!! They're just so short. At least they come out every six months.

I want more of Shane and Claire! I really actually hate the idea of Myrnin and Claire together and everyone seems to be saying that they're going to end up together. No. Bad.

I really love that these books are nothing like the standard young adult vampire book. And they're so...actiony. Love it.

I also really love Claire, in all the books.

This book seemed to have less Shane and Claire, together, than...more

I finished this book last night, whilst I was in bed. Usually if I finish a book in bed, I find it difficult to sleep, because the plot is whizzing through my head! But sadly not so much with this book. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed it, but I can't help to think that if I'd read all the Morganvilles 1-10 straight I'd be disappointed by this one.

About half way through I feared the plot was unusally predictable, and my fears we right. I love this series, but in my opinion, this book fell flat in...more

Finally, another book in the series DONE! :)

I can't say that it didn't take me longer to read it than I would usually read a Morganville vampire book, but there were a few other books I was reading at the same time. Yet I couldn't stop wanting to know what will happen next in this one. Every page and I mean EVERY single page was a question of Why? Who? How?... Even after reading the first 9 books in this series, I'm always surprised by how different but interconnected each books is. Not many can...more

Review courtesy of All Things Urban Fantasy

It’s always a blast visiting Morganville. After ten books, BITE CLUB is still as fresh and fun as the first, maybe even more so. The potential for new stories in this vampire run college town is apparently limitless. The cast of characters is quite large by now, but the story never feels cluttered. I think that’s largely due to Caine’s deft dialogue which is not only funny, but functionally moves the story along as well. The plot never comes close to dr...more

Rant

From the beginning of the series I had a love/hate relationship with Shane and was certain that this book would finally push me one way or the other, and I have to say, I hate that guy. Yeah I get it, his life sucks, everyone he loves is dead, his dad was an abusive jerk, etc, etc. This does not excuse him for being an idiot and treating Claire the way he did, or Eve and Michael for that matter! Yes he was glamoured, but he was also self aware, he knew what he was doing the whole time. Clair...more

Rachel Caine continues to floor me with this amazing series.”Bite club” is the tenth installment in the Morganville Vampire Series and true to the rest of the series it does not disappoint. The scenarios that Caine creates for this band of friends, well some are not so friendly, keeps me interested and invested to the very last page. Are their grammar issues? Well some would say “yes” but, who am I to judge when I use spell check. Does it create major issues with the storyline? I say “hell no!”...more

In the latest instalment in the Morganville vampires series, trouble is afoot yet again but this time, we experience far more than the normal struggles of Morganville. Unlike all the previous books, the tight-knit Glass house occupants are suffering; the danger is coming from one of their own. Whenever there has been trouble in the past, they have always fought it together, but this time, it's up to the girls to try and save not just Morganville, but Shane and Michael too.

I have to give this book a failing grade. Judging by the previews Rachel Caine has posted from both her site, and circulated around through her newsletters, it's going to be an absolute mess.

The series has been taking a steady nosedive since book six, Carpe Corpus. This is somewhat understandable, considering Caine originally thought she was only going to be allotted those first six, or as I like to call them, The Original Six. These first six books were pristine, shiny and innovative, with more...more

OMG. OKAY. Spoilers!!!! SPOILERS!!! SPOILERS. AVERT THY VIRGIN EYES.

Okay so............. Is Bishop like really REALLY dead? Ugh for being the cruelest vampire, it seemed waaaaay too easy of a kill and waaay to light. He should have suffered more! Jackass.

As for Shane -_- I enjoyed reading his pov and all but it just made me hate him because he didn't have enough willpower to oversee Glorytwat's glamour. Grrr. (Alliteration haha) Anyways, yeah lol it was nice though :)

I hated when he fought Mikey...more

Loved it! This series just keeps getting better and better. Can't wait for the next book! Eve really shined in this one she was bad ass and really funny, and Myrinin loved him he's hilarious! You get to see whats going on in Shanes head in this one, I have to say I'm not liking him too much right now. I have some questions I'd like to get answered too like why did Micheal hesitate when Shane asked about Claire, does he have feelings for her?hmmmm...it sure seems like it to me the way he's acting...more
J-J lover of books
What to say about Bite Club???....It was flipping awesome, so awesome i could scream. It had everything as always & twists & turns each & every which way & i don't think i even guessed any of them. Claire being in the thick of it,as always with Eve,Michael & Shane, all side by side. But Eve & Claire got to save the day this time..oh with the help of one crazy vampire Myrnin. Myrnin helped to save the day.

This is another thumbs up to Rachel Caine, a huge thumbs up. I enjo...more
Melanie
The first rule of fight club is ........ hmmm lets ask Shane !

Loved it ! whats not to love if youre a Morganville Fan. Plenty of ups and downs, mainly downs and my anxiety levels were the same. A lot of conflict in this one and not just from Claire, old enemies resurface and damage is done to relationships that may not be repaired but hey, its Morganville, What do you expect ? still going strong 10 books later :D
