Daylighters (The Morganville Vampires #15) by Rachel Caine
This is a young adult paranormal fantasy novel (Rated R)
(Four and a half Daylighters Hearts)
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.
I can’t say that this was the best series ender I’ve read. However, I will say it wasn’t the worst.
Okay, danger is ever present. And since this was the end of the book, I wasn’t sure how things were going to turn out. Ultimately, I will say I was bummed that is was quite predictable. And I wasn’t thrilled with how things turned out with Michael. Again, predictable.
As much as I loved Myrin, I thought his end was forced. The set up happens in the previous book. SPOILER. Out of nowhere a vampire is created as his “long” lost love interest. REALLY? However, I’m glad he and Claire didn’t end up together.
I’m really surprised that she killed off a couple of characters. Although they weren’t one of the four or say seven, they were still decent characters that didn’t seem to deserve their fate.
However, overall, we got a rounded out story that included all the players (the seven – Claire, Shane, Michael, Eve, Amelie, Oliver, Myrin) and we got some characters from previous books as well. It’s almost like the last episode of a sitcom. Everyone was brought in to remind you of all the important people in the story.
Anyway, a decent series ender. I won’t complain more.
Angela Dawe continues to do a good job with this series. I will say I miss Cynthia Holloway.
My book boyfriend is sweet Shane.
