With its eclectic mix of vampire and human citizens, Morganville, Texas, has always been a risky place to call home. But with the invasion of the vampire's deadliest enemy, Morganville isn't just in danger--it's dying...

 Ever since the draug--mysterious creatures that prey on vampires--took over Morganville, the lives of student Claire Danvers and her friends have been thrown into turmoil. Most of the town's residents have evacuated, but Claire, Shane, Eve and Michael have chosen to stay and fight.

Using the city's water system to spread, the draug have rapidly multiplied. Things in Morganville look grim, especially since vampire Amelie--the town founder--has been infected by the master draug's bite. 

Now, if Claire and her friends don't figure out how to cure Amelie and defeat the draug, it looks like Morganville will become little more than a ghost town...

Another very good by in the Morganville Vampire Series. In this book, Claire, Shane, Michael and Eve are trying to find a way to kill the draug and to find a way to cure Amelie who has been bitten by the master draug. It will hold your interest from beginning to end.

Book was fun, easy, quick to read. But... I'm kind of waiting for this series to end, to say adios, and for the town to implode at some point and disappear.

I really liked this book. It was exciting and so much happened the characters were put through personal challanges that they each had to over come all the while dealing with a massive city wide disaster. I hope there is another book because I would love to keep reading about morganville and the vampires and humans that live there

Black Dawn was an intense, fast paced glimpse into the Morganville Vampire world.It features everything you want a a book. Growth in the characters, love when you least expect it and death around every corner. Cant wait for the next book in the series.

For the desert town of Morganville the recent torrential rains have brought the Vampires worst enemy to town. For the Vampires the draug have set up pools to feed on them. The draug prefer to feed on vampires, but they can make do with humans also.

As always Michael, Eve, Shane and Claire are all right in the middle of the action. Claire is helping Myrnin find something that will kill off the draug. They must find something because the main draug is after Claire. She is the only one that can see his form clearly. She is a threat to Magnus and he is determined to kill her once again.

While Amalie lays dying, the fight to take over her rule of Morganville is being played out. Oliver has set himself up to take care of Amalie, but make no mistake, he knows that when Amalie dies he will take her place as the ruler of the town. But Amalie's sister Naomi has a different thought. She too wants control, and neither one of them plan on extending the humans as many rights as Amalie has. Morganville is about to change
