By day, Morganville, Texas, is just a typical college town. By night, the vampires emerge and take control....

In a town where it’s not safe to be out after dark, student Claire Danvers and her friends have had their fair share of thrills. But Morganville still has a few secrets left to tell.

Now, in this collection, you can venture down the town’s strange streets, revisit all the tales you’ve come to love, and experience six new stories featuring your favorite Morganville residents—both human and vampire...

Rachel Caine has been writing about Morganville vampires for a very long time and it is one of my favorite series. In this collection you get some behind the scenes looks into some of the characters with a get-to-know-you feel. I have to say that this left me wanting more individualized stories about some of the other characters. I would love a book on Amelie, Oliver and more on Myrnin as a young boy and beyond just to name a few.

If you are a Morganville fan this collection is a must read! I have to say that many of the stories were released with other authors or on the web that I was unaware of so I am so very happy that they were published in this collection. It brings clarity to some characters, both main characters and supporting that was definitely appreciated. Anger Management is the story of Shane going to therapy with Dr. Goldman. I think that I liked this one the most because we rarely get to see inside of Shane or see his sensitive side and this story brought a new depth to Shane that was missing so far.

Once again my final comments really are, please keep writing about Morganville, Rachel! I would love to see branch outs of each character and have stories written from their point of view. A book about Myrnin and Lady Grey would be an ideal place to start.
