Review: Midnight Alley by Rachel Caine (Rating: 4 Wine Glasses)

Posted December 9, 2010 by Felicia S in Uncategorized / 0 Comments


From Goodreads: Claire Danvers’s college town may be run by vampires but a truce between the living and the dead made things relatively safe. For a while. Now people are turning up dead, a psycho is stalking her, and an ancient bloodsucker has proposed private mentoring. To what end, Claire will find out. And it’s giving night school a whole new meaning.

Publisher: NAL Jam
Purchased: Purchased from Amazon

What I Loved: This has been my favorite book of the series so far.  There is so much that I loved and it was mostly from a nerd girl POV! List o Love: Claire’s smarts are important to the Vamp World.  Shane is a tarnished Knight in Shining armor but he is protective in the best ways. Micheal’s self control and makes me wonder about his overall role to come.  Eve is just wonderful all around with her quick quips and loyalty.  Overall–I loved that the foursome grew as a team but still showed that things can happen to make you question even those closest to you!

What I Liked: I really like how RC manages to wrap up some storylines while throwing some new ones in the mix.  She manages even to make the “mean” girls show some humanity and yet you still don’t like them.  Her endings always make you want the next book immediately.

Complaints:  None!

Why I gave it a 4: This was a fantastic story of friendship and growth.  It was fun, quick, and easy to read.

Who I would recommend it too:  This is great for YA PNR readers and I would say PNR readers that liked the Vampire Academy.  However, I would say not to start in the middle of the series.
