Description from Goodreads

 Ever since the draug—mysterious creatures that prey on vampires—took over Morganville, the lives of student Claire Danvers and her friends have been thrown into turmoil. Most of the town’s residents have evacuated, but Claire, Shane, Eve and Michael have chosen to stay and fight. Using the city’s water system to spread, the draug have rapidly multiplied. Things in Morganville look grim, especially since vampire Amelie—the town founder—has been infected by the master draug’s bite. 

Now, if Claire and her friends don’t figure out how to cure Amelie and defeat the draug, it looks like Morganville will become little more than a ghost town…

The Draug. Evil beyond evil. They have come to decimate the vampires of Morganville, and whats worse, the vampires are powerless to stop them. The draug feed on blood, but they especially love vampire blood, they feed by being liquid gel-like being and sucking blood with acidy like bites or pokes from the skin. Sound painful? It is. 

So of course it is up to Claire and Co. to find a solution and end the draug problem, which can only be achieved by killing the master draught Magus, but Claire is the only one who can see him. This installment of the long running series was in my opinon much much better than the last one (Last Breath) It had its action, its angst and its love. There were twisty twists (Jason!!) and the usual vampire/human fighting.

 The only thing I think I had a problem with was they always seem to focus on Shane for some reason, hes always the one getting kidnapped or hurt or whatever, give someone else a turn! Okay, that sounded a bit sadistic, but really… the book is quite good and I am so happy for that ending.

    Claire sounds great, and I have heard so much good about Caine even though I haven't read her myself.
    Happy reading,

    This is another series I've been wanting to get started on! I 've heard it's great! So, I bought the first six books on ebay a couple of months ago -- in paperback, and they are the UK editions, which have awesome covers!! I'm looking forward to reading them! Thanks for the interesting, informative review!! :)
