While Morganville, Texas, is often a troubled town, Claire Danvers and her friends are looking forward to coming home. But the Morganville they return to isn’t the one they know; it’s become a different place—a deadly one…
Something drastic has happened in Morganville while Claire and her friends were away. The town looks cleaner and happier than they’ve ever seen it before, but when their incoming group is arrested and separated—vampires from humans—they realize that the changes definitely aren’t for the better.
It seems that an organization called the Daylight Foundation has offered the population of Morganville something they’ve never had: hope of a vampire-free future. And while it sounds like salvation—even for the vampires themselves—the truth is far more sinister and deadly.
Now, Claire, Shane and Eve need to find a way to break their friends out of Daylighter custody, before the vampires of Morganville meet their untimely end…
As a huge fan of this series, I'm super sad to see it end - but it was defintely time - and Rachel did it perfectly. She closed it out in a way that each character had an end without it feeling like The End. (If that makes sense) She didn't have to go through the list of characters and give all the details of their future, you are just content with how it ends and aren't curious as to how so and so turns out.
As a whole, the story was good - plenty of action, drama, and sarcasm as always.
There were some parts that didn't quite keep my interest and I'd find myself spacing out and thinking of other things while still holding the book. The whole point of reading is to escape from the world and our problems for a little while. Despite the few mind wandering moments I did enjoy the book; it seems the story has come full circle.
In the beginning, the humans are terrified of the vampires and subsequently are their prisoners; by book #15, Daylighters, the vampires are now terrified of the humans and are imprisoned with shock collars. At least in the beginning. It seems everyone's roles have reversed at some point or another throughout the series, but in the end they are all trying to live peacefully... or as peacefully as humans and vampires can.
I mean, they are predator and prey after all.
