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 innuendos concerning the ma

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

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.

3 1/2 stars for this one. I love this series but this book really showed me some points I liked more than previous books and some I liked less. The drama within the Glass house reaches all new heights in this book. Everyone has secrets from one another and not all of them are good!

In this book a new gym has opened up where a vampire is training humans and vampires alike. One thing I must say is that it must be HUGE. We get all the standard gym setups for weights, cardio, etc. We have boxing area
This was the worst one in the whole series for me.
Shane is one of my least favourite characters.
Soooo a book where the primary POV is his with all his boring inner monologue is not likely to work for me.

He's such a douchebag.

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

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

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

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

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

Since this is the first time I've even heard or read about this series am I allowed to mention how much it's disappointing me?!? I feel like the first couple of books were good, well a little, but now it's starting to feel like a chore to read them. I really just want to finish this series and be done with it. I have a feeling I will never ever re-read these books. Once I return them to the library I will never think of them again. Now for some spoilers, I guess:

All I have to say is Shane is an asshole and he doesn't deserve Claire. Honestly he never will.
Shane gets caught up in a fight club run by a glamour wielding vampire out to profit from the remnants of Kim's internet connections. Claire, Michael and Eve try to save him before Amelie shuts down the ring and kills everyone involved.

I'm still entertained by this series. I loved that we got a little of Shane's POV in this book, though I did laugh at how simplistic he is about things. I am also relieved that some of the problem characters were eliminated as possible future plot motivators. It w

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

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.

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

Okay so past me gave this one 3 starts on my first read, but present me is knocking that down to 1 star because I got halfway through the book and just could not!!! keep going.

There’s the same drama from Shane, 10 books in, with the whole ‘vampires are not to be trusted, especially my bff Michael’ thing. Except this time there’s added violence, including towards Eve and Claire.

And the new added sections from Shane’s POV, all in first person and written in italics, are unbearable to get through.

We finally got another point of view! I was so happy to get a glimpse into Shane's mind. He keeps a lot inside and I've wondered how he feels and what he thinks about things. It's cute seeing how much he loves Claire and I feel bad that he's been through so much trauma. It was kind of cool seeing humans on level with vampires, even though the fighting was really bad for everyone. We saw a reappearance of Kim, my most despised human character in this series and a little humanity in Jason. I also ...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

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.

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

This book was so different to the others in the series. It introduces Shane in a new light and brings in his thoughts along with the storyline. I enjoyed this bigger focus on Shane because he sometimes can be left in the shadows a bit. BUT Myrnin wasn't in it as much as I would've liked, it was lacking his crazy character and I found that it lacked a major 'bad' character throughout the book. There were elements but it was more of a bad club more than certain characters. Bishop was there underne ...more

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
( day, another Morganville Vampire book. Or I should say, another day in the life of Morganville and Claire. And the vampires. What a series this has been, and I am not even close to the end yet!

Out of the blue, a gym has opened up in Morganville. Not just any gym, but one that is run by vampires. Shane is all about working out and learning new ways to fight the vampires, and if he can learn to fight from an actual vampire, then even better. Since nothing much fun happens i

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
