Memorable quotes:
  • "Vampires. A total pain in the neck -- literally." ~ Claire
  • "Look, vampires and humans together have never been a good idea. It's like cats and mice hooking up. Always end up badly for the mouse." ~ Shane
  • "Lesson number one in Morganville. Keep walking. Just keep walking." ~ Eve
  • "Marriage is a big word for all guys. You know that. It's kind of an allergy. We get itchy and sweaty just trying to spell it, much less do it." ~ Shane
  • "Every story's tragic somewhere along the way. You just have to know where to stop telling the story to make it a happy ending." ~ Eve
  •  "I'm not the vampire welcome wagon!" ~ Claire
  • "Not that the guy's stable any time, but today he's extra-crispy crazy." ~ Shane about Myrnin
  • "When the two of us agree, something is definitely wrong." ~ Shane about him and Eve
  • "I had heard many insane things during my lifetime, and more than half of them had come from Myrnin." ~ Amelie
  • "In my position, mercy is the last option considered, not the first." ~ Amelie
  • "You're the book whisperer." ~ Shane to Claire
  • "Civil war among the vampires: not pretty."
  • "Oh, try not to sound so much like Mom -- you don't have the ovaries." ~ Monica to Richard
  • "Nice to know some things never change. Plagues, deaths, taxes, Monica." ~ Shane
  • "Sorry, lady, but nobody's staking anybody at this party! I hung a disco ball for this!" ~ Shane
  • "Pain was life, and life could be beautiful, with all its scars and flaws." ~ Claire

My commentary:
  • I so very much love the nicknames Shane comes up with for Myrnin: Crazy McTeeth, Nutty McFang, Count Crackula.
  • This series just keeps getting better and better. It's such a nail-biting series. I can't get enough of it.
