Official summary: "While Morganville, Texas, is often a troubled town, Claire Danvers and her friends are looking forward to coming home. But the Morganville they return to isn’t the one they know; it’s become a different place - a deadly one ... Something drastic has happened in Morganville while Claire and her friends were away. The town looks cleaner and happier than they’ve ever seen it before, but when their incoming group is arrested and separated—vampires from humans — they realize that the changes definitely aren’t for the better. It seems that an organization called the Daylight Foundation has offered the population of Morganville something they’ve never had: hope of a vampire-free future. And while it sounds like salvation — even for the vampires themselves — the truth is far more sinister and deadly. Now, Claire, Shane and Eve need to find a way to break their friends out of Daylighter custody, before the vampires of Morganville meet their untimely end ..." (http://www.morganvillevampire.com/)

My commentary: --
- “As far as I know, Hitler had a heartbeat, and I wouldn’t vote him to be in charge.” ~ Claire
- “You brought me grenades. You are officially the best girlfriend ever.” ~ Shane to Claire
- “There were a few things scarier than a bipolar vampire off his meds, but to be honest, not that many.”
- “In the end, loving Myrnin, really loving him, could be like living with an unexploded bomb - sooner or later it was bound to go off, and for someone fragile and human, it would be fatal.”
- “The unknowns wasn't full of terrors, it was full of undiscovered advantages. Better to run toward something than from something.”

Reading Bingo: On the Reading Bingo Challenge I am going to mark this book off as "a book with an epic love story." Michael and Eve's love story would have to be called epic. He was killed and became a ghost, then became a vampire, then got healed back into a human, all while being with Eve. If that's not "epic," I don't know what is.
