Claire Danvers has pledged herself to Amelie, the most powerful vampire in town. But being under Amelie's protection doesn't offer much comfort when people start turning up dead, a stalker resurfaces from Claire's past, and an ancient bloodsucker extends a chilling invitation for private lessons at his secluded home in Midnight Alley. To what end, Claire will soon discover--and it will give a terrifying new meaning to night school.
Midnight Alley is the third book in the Morganville Vampire series by Rachel Caine. This book is more of a 3 1/2 star book, than the 3 I had to give it.
As with the previous Morganville books, Claire, Eve, Michael, and Shane seem to always find trouble. Claire believes she can protect her friends by accepting Amelie as her patron. In this book, Claire finds out that being under the protection of a vampire isn't all it's cracked up to be. Although Amelie is the most powerful vampire in Morganville, her protection still doesn't keep Claire and her friends safe.
One thing that I really liked about this book was the introduction of Myrnin. I won't discuss his role in this book because it would just spoil it for future readers; however, I will say that Myrnin is a very interesting character. He's a very old and dangerous vampire that Claire finds herself working with, and it could possibly get her killed.
With each book I read in this series, I find myself becoming more interested. I have to hand it to Rachel Caine, she can write YA as well as she does adult PNR.
