Good news, girls: your dates are here!
Claire Danvers has had her fair share of challenges - like being a genius in a school that favours beauty, dealing with the homicidal girls in her dorm and, above all, finding out that her college town is overrun with bloodsucking fiends. On the plus side, so far Claire and her friendship have managed to survive getting on the wrong side of some Morganville VIPs - Vampire Important Persons. But their temporary peace is in danger of collapsing, thanks to the arrival of her new boyfriend’s scary father and his vampire-fighting supporters.
Morganville’s such a nice place to live…
And die. If you don’t mind that sort of thing.
When Claire Danvers learnt that her college town was run by vampires, she did what any intelligent, self-preserving student would do: she applied for a transfer and stocked up on the garlic. The transfer is no longer an option, but the garlic may come in handy.
Now Claire has pledged herself to Amelie, the most powerful vampire in town. The protection her contract secures does little to reassure her friends. All of a sudden, people are turning up dead, a stalker resurfaces from Claire’s past, and an ancient bloodsucker extends a chilling invitation for private lessons in his secluded home.
It was hard to imagine how Claire’s day could get any worse…
And then the vampires holding her hostage wanted breakfast.
In the town of Morganville, vampires and humans have learnt to live in relative peace. Still, Claire Danvers knows that after dark her homework can take a backseat to staying alive. But this tenuous kinship is turned on its head with the arrival of Mr Bishop.
Bad to the bone, the ancient old-school vampire cares nothing about keeping the peace; staying at the top of the food chain is enough. What he wants from the town’s living and dead is unthinkingly sinister. It’s only at a formal ball attended by vampires and their human dates that Claire realises Bishop’s plan - and the elaborately evil trap he’s set for the warm-blooded souls of Morganville…
Thank you to Chiara from Allison and Busby for sending me these.
Have a good week everyone!
