In the college town of Morganville, vampires and humans have learned to live in relative peace. Still, students like Claire Danvers know that after dark, studying can take a back-seat to staying alive. But the tenuous good-neighbor policy is really turned on its head with the arrival of Mr. Bishop.
Bad to the bone, the ancient old-school vampire cares nothing about harmony. Staying at the top of the food chain is enough. What he wants from the town's living and dead is unthinkably sinister. It's only at a formal ball attended by vampires and their human dates that Claire realizes Bishop's plan -- and the elaborately evil trap he's set for the warm-blooded souls of Morganville....
“Pain doesn't matter much, One learns to ignore it eventually.”Myrnin
“Jealous?" "Maybe." "No reason. I like my ladies with a pulse." He took her hand and pressed his fingers gently against her writs. "Yep, you've got one. It's beating pretty fast, too." "I'm not kidding, Shane." "Neither am I. No vamp's going to come between us. You believe me?”Shane, Claire
“Don't do anything dumb, or I'll kill you myself." "Ouch, girl. whatever happened to unconditional love around here?" "It got tired of visiting you in the hospital.”Claire, Shane
“Let's review, you got all diva and decided you were too busy to go to the store. Next, Shane threw a tantrum and stomped up to his room to put on a one-man pity party. And now you're ordering me around like you own me. Are we under a testosterone storm warning?" "Eve." "I'm not finished. You may think that growing a pair of fangs makes you the boss around here, but you'd better check your playlist. You're on the seriously wrong track.”Eve, Michael
“Oh my God, are you wearing the same thing you had on yesterday? You're not doing the walk of shame, are you? Because I totally cannot face your parents if you are." "No, no it's not like that- I just- we were talking, and we fell asleep. I swear, we didn't, um-" "Yeah, you'd better not have ummed, because if you did, that would be-" Eve struggled not to smile. "That would be bad.”Eve, Claire
“I'm donating blood. It doesn't hurt, right?" "Dude, they're sticking a big-ass needle in your vein- of course it hurts.”Claire, Shane
“I'm going to kill him. Stake him right in the heart, shove garlic up his ass, and-and-" "And what?" "When did you get home?" "Apparently just in time to hear my funeral plans. I especially like the garlic up the ass. It's...different." "Yeah, well, I'm not finished. I'm also going to stake you outside, in the sun, on top of a fire ant mound. And laugh.”Eve, Michael, Claire
“What do you want, Richard?" "Good question. I guess I want a nice girl who can cook, likes action movies, and looks good in short skirts. But I'll settle for you taking the chain off the door and letting me in.”Claire, Richard
“Here." "Umm...what is that?" "Brain tissue." "What?" "I said brain tissue." "Whose brain tissue?" "I haven't a lot of volunteers in easy reach, you know." "That's brain tissue. How can you-? Never mind. I don't think I want to know.”Myrnin, Claire
“Can you do cartwheels? Backflips?" "I'm a science nerd, not a cheerleader." "Pity about that, too.”Myrnin, Claire
“Breathe. I'm not much for it myself, but I hear it's quite good for humans.”Myrnin
“Do a cartwheel." "Do a what?" "I would ask you to do a backflip, but I'm almost certain that would be a problem. Cartwheel. Now.”Myrnin, Claire
“Crap. Are you thinking what I'm thinking?" "I'm thinking we have about fifteen vampires and no blood, is that it?" "No, I was thinking we're out of chips. Of course that's what I was thinking.”Shane, Claire
