Summary (from Goodreads):
After discovering that vampires populate her town, college student Claire Danvers knows that the undead just want to live their lives. But someone else wants them to get ready to rumble.

There's a new extreme sport getting picked up on the Internet: bare- knuckle fights pitting captured vampires against each other-or humans. Tracking the remote signal leads Claire- accompanied by her friends and frenemies-to discover that what started as an online brawl will soon threaten everyone in Morganville...

After 10 books, you either know and adore Rachel Caine’s Morganville Vampires series or you’re one of the crazy few who hasn’t delved into this addictive series. If you’re part of the latter group? What the heck are you waiting for?

Each book is full of fun, engaging plots and bright, colorful characters. This book, though, has a small twist: Instead of seeing the book through Claire’s (our heroine’s) eyes, we get alternating views of life in Morganville from Shane’s eyes. For those who don’t know, Shane is Claire’s boyfriend, fellow housemate, and an all around kick-ass kinda guy. I must say it was nice to have that shift, especially when Shane went down a dark road that had him doing many questionable things. This insight into his inner turmoil is what kept me from climbing into the pages and beating him over the head.

I can’t wait for the next installment of this series due out in November (I already pre-ordered it). The end of this book leaves the reader clamoring for more, but not in a frustrated way. There are a few things I can’t wait for (namely the possibility of a certain wedding) in the next book. Caine is a great storyteller, and she gives a unique spin to her vampires in a world chock full of vampire fiction. I can’t recommend enough that people give this series a shot.
