MORGANVILLE, TEXAS. JUST SOUTH OF NORMAL.
In the college town of Morganville, vampires and humans have coexisted in (relatively) bloodless harmony...until the arrival of Bishop, a master vampire who threatens to put the evil back in evil undead and smash the fragile peace. But Bishop isn't the only threat....
Violent black clouds promise a storm of devastating proportions. As student Claire Danvers and her friends prepare to defend Morganville against the elements -- both natural and unnatural -- the unexpected happens: Morganville's vampires begin to vanish one by one. Discovering why leads Claire to one last choice: Swear allegiance to Bishop...or die.
“She twisted the cap off the Coke she’d retrieved from the fridge—which was stocked up again, although she knew it hadn’t been when they’d left. Another favor from the house, she guessed, although how it went shopping on its own she had no idea.”Claire Danvers
“Sometime, somewhere, life always comes to a fight, and peace always comes to an end.”Amelie
“She was poison in a pretty bottle.”Claire Danvers
“What?" "That's it? That's your big good-bye?" "What was wrong with it?" Claire looked at Eve, mystified. "I think I need guy Cliffsnotes." "Guys aren't deep enough to need Cliffsnotes." "What were you waiting for, flowery poetry? I hugged. I'm done.”Michael, Eve, Claire, Shane
“Don't let anything happen to you. I love you guys." "Ditto.”Michael, Shane
“Damn. That was not a walk in the park." "You should meet my boyfriend. You two are both masters of understatement.”Hannah Moses, Claire
“Damn, he'd better not bleed all over the place. Claire, I thought you were supposed to-" "I know, don't remind me. I was supposed to keep him safe." "So, who staked him?" "I did." "Okay, that's an interesting interpretation of safe.”Eve, Claire
“You okay? Yeah, I know. Terror aerobics. Just wait until they get it at the gym. It'll be bigger than Pilates.”Eve
“Whoa, mini-me, chill out. We've got to get moving. Much as I'd like to see the cage match, we're kind of on a schedule.”Eve
“Get him inside somewhere." "And do what, babysit him the rest of the day? O'Malley's not like Myrnin, you can't stake him. He's not that old." "We could run him over. It wouldn't kill him." "Excuse me? With my car?”Claire, Eve, Hannah
“That went well. He's named you heir apparent to the Apocalypse. Congratulations." "Yeah, it's one hell of a field promotion.”Dean Wallace, Richard
“You know, in my youth, women lined up to grant me their favors. I believe I'm a bit offended." "It's a strange day for everybody.”Myrnin, Claire
“Shane, Hannah, this is Myrnin. He's sort of my boss." "Yeah? This the guy who took you to the ball? The one who dumped you and left you to die?" "Well...uh...yes." "Thought so." *Shane punches Myrnin* "No! No, honest, it's not like that. Calm down, everybody, please." "Yes, I've been staked quite enough today, thank you.”Claire, Shane, Myrnin
“What if something had happened to you? She'd have been locked in there, all alone, no way out. She'd have starved." "Actually, that's not very likely. Thirst would have killed her within four days, I imagine. She'd never have had a chance to starve. What?" "I think you missed the point.”Shane, Myrnin, Claire
“What's happening to our town?" "France. Welcome to the revolution.”Monica, Claire
“Glad to see you, too." "Dude, it's a house. Hug somebody who cares.”Claire, Shane
“I'll be back soon." "Better be, I could totally date somebody else, you know." "And I could rent out your room." "And I could put your game console on eBay." "Hey, now you're just being mean.”Michael, Eve, Shane
“It's not locked," "It's also not open. I'm not a complete ass.”Claire, Shane
“There's got to be a way!" "Oh, there is, there is. But you won't like it, my little Claire. It isn't neat, and it isn't easy. And it will require considerable courage from you, yet again." "I'll do it!" "No, you won't," Shane and Michael said, at virtually the same time. Shane continued. "You're barely on your feet, Claire. You don't go anywhere, not without me." "And me," Michael said. "Hell, I guess that mean I have to go, too. Which I may not ever forgive you for, even if I don't die horribly.”Claire, Myrnin, Michael, Shane, Eve

“In this whole screwed-up town, you’re the only thing that’s always been right to me,” he whispered. “I love you, Claire.”Highlighted by 53 Kindle customers
“And without forgiveness, there is never any peace. I tell you this from the distance of many centuries. My son gave his life. I won’t reply to his gift with anger, not even for those who took him from me. Those same poor, sad people will wake up tomorrow grieving their own losses, I think, if they survive at all. How can hating them heal me?”Highlighted by 42 Kindle customers

Myrnin seemed to be honestly considering it. Claire urgently shook her head no. The last thing she—any of them—needed just now was Myrnin on caffeine.Highlighted by 33 Kindle customers
Myrnin leaned close to Claire’s ear and said, “I think I like your young man.” When she reacted in pure confusion, he held up his hands, smiling. “Not in that way, my dear. He just seems quite trustworthy.”Highlighted by 33 Kindle customers
