REVIEW: Fall of Night by Rachel Caine
Unbeknownst to Claire, Shane is shadowing her in Boston, partly to ensure her safety and also because he hopes her longing to be together is as strong as his. When Claire's new roommate, Liz, is kidnapped, she learns Shane is in town. They band together with the help of some surprise visitors (Oliver, Myrnin, Michael and Eve) to track down Liz but not before more problems arise.
This is a solid, if rather angsty, addition to the series. I'm behind with finishing these last two books; however, since Midnight Bites, a collection of Morganville short stories is slated for release in early 2016, I thought I'd work to catch up. I always enjoyed these books. The characters are well written and the world building and story arcs are generally compelling. These do not move well at our public library any longer since the teen vampire fiction trend has waned. Nonetheless, I still recommend these quite frequently.
I was glad when Claire and Shane have seemed to work it out. Caine incorporates great twists, especially at the end. I'm sure there will be some fallout in Daylighters concerning the events of this book. I certainly wasn't expecting that ending!
Final rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars
