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…

I really don’t know how Rachel Caine does it, but every single book in this series is awesome!

Bite Club is full of action and more emotional scenes between some key figures in Morganville.

One of the most interesting things in Bite Club is the fact that the author tells the story from alternating perspectives–Claire and Shane’s that is.

Shane takes up a hobby at the Athletic Club and his moods began to shift to the dark side. He is more short fused (than usual) and at times mean to others…including Claire. This is tough shift in his character but given everything he has been through, possibly a necessary inner struggle that he will have to make in order to actually grow. As if that isn’t enough, the drama in Morganville is beginning to bubble over once again, but this time it is due in part to the dead bodies popping up where they are least expected and some unusual videos on the Internet. How will Claire and company solve the mystery and stop the threat if their tight knit relationships are unraveling?

Eve also takes on a hobby and has an interesting instructor that just happens to be Morganville founder Amelie. Eve’s character like Shane’s is really growing but in very different ways. And, Eve and Michael have their own emotional moments and they are very important ones. Fans of the couple will be on the edge of their seats reading those scenes.

Myrnin as always provides some interesting moments especially with his new computer that is very different in personality than Ada (his previous real thinking computer) and *gasp* he may be becoming my favorite male character–even above Shane! It is becoming more apparent that Myrnin feels something more than hunger pangs for Claire and with Shane being so moody and broody one can’t help but wonder “What if”…

Rachel Caine is such a SUPER STAR in my opinion. Her writing is able to communicate with both female AND male audiences and is consistently good reading. If you are still on the fence about the series I must ask–What the heck are you waiting for?
