My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Is about a 16 year girl goes to Morganville to school and finds out that the town is ruled by vampires. This is an amazing book that will keep you not wanting to put it down.
Claire (16 years girl) she sound so fragile at the beginning but in the end she surprises everyone by being all the time the one that does everything to save the people she loves, even if that means getting her seriously hurt or maybe dead.
The girl is very smart with a big heart, but she lets the emotion and fear take over her judgement sometimes.

Claire has to learn so many things that will be impossible for a human to even be able to create the "medication" which she was taking to learn so much more in so little time. Why they were in a rush it was because Myrnin was only in his clear mind just for few hours and those hours they will spend while he was lucked up in a cage.
