Claire Danvers made a deal with the strongest vampire in town, a deal which was meant to ensure her friend’s safety in Morganville. Now Amelie is using that contract to force Claire into an education they don’t teach in her college classes. Learning new material isn’t usually a problem for someone with Claire’s level of intelligence, but she’s always up for a challenge. The trouble is that her new instructor is less than sane, and every minute in his presence is at a high risk to her mortal life. Sanity is slipping away from Myrnin, and if Claire can’t catch on to his lessons quickly, the future of vampires could very well come to an end.

Eve’s scary brother is stalking Claire, her boyfriend Shane is recuperating from a serious injury, her roommate Michael is a vampire, and dead bodies are showing up around the house. With everything going wrong for the residents of the Glass house, the last thing any of them need is anymore surprises, but the vampires plan to get what they want and there’s little that Claire and her friends can do to stop them.

Midnight Alley is the third book in The Morganville Vampires series. Claire is being put to a test, and the struggle to balance her life between human friends and the vampires who control the town is getting more complicated with each passing day. With a well-paced storyline, Ms. Caine weaves a web of dangerous temptation, dark deceit and loving friendships. The non-stop vampire action and the delightfully sweet relationships will captivate readers and leave them craving more.
