Morganville Vampires books 2 and 3 by Rachel Caine

The Dead Girls' Dance (The Morganville Vampires, #2)The Dead Girls’ Dance by Rachel Caine
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The Dead Girls’ Dance is the second book in the Morganville Vampire series and it picks up right after the ending of the first book. Claire and her roommates now not only have the vampires to deal with in Morganville but Shane’s father has shown up with his bikers buddies.

So far I’m finding this series just rather average. Sometimes I enjoy what’s going on but at other times I find Claire to be rather annoying and some of the choices made to be laughable. I’m still kind of comparing this to some of the rather campy horror movies that are usually more for a laugh but that’s not necessarily a bad thing either.

Not really a bad read but room for improvement still. Hoping that Claire will mature a bit in the upcoming books. Things should get a bit more interesting after some of the happenings in this book.

Midnight Alley (The Morganville Vampires, #3)Midnight Alley by Rachel Caine
My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

Midnight Alley is the third book in the Morganville Vampire series. This installment picks up with Claire and company right where The Dead Girls’ Dance has left off. Claire has to start honoring her contract with Amelie by beginning to work with a vampire named Myrnin and there seems to be a serial killer on the loose but it isn’t a vampire.

I have to say I enjoyed this book a bit more than the first two in the series. Perhaps it’s the fact that Michael now gets to be more involved by getting out of the house or just that working with Myrnin we learn some new secrets about the vampires.

Claire can still seem to act without thinking about her own safety sometimes but it did seem like she was a bit more careful about her safety in this book. Shane however makes some dumb moves just when I thought we were learning some common sense.

Overall, 3.5 stars for Midnight Alley. I think fans of supernatural/vampire stories will enjoy this series but still room for improvement in the story line.
