Something drastic has happened in Morganville while Claire and her friends were away. The town looks cleaner and happier than they've ever seen it before, but when their incoming group is arrested and separated--vampires from humans--they realize that the changes definitely aren't for the better.
It seems that an organization called the Daylight Foundation has offered the population of Morganville something they've never had: hope of a vampire-free future. And while it sounds like salvation--even for the vampires themselves--the truth is far more sinister and deadly.
Now, Claire, Shane and Eve need to find a way to break their friends out of Daylighter custody, before the vampires of Morganville meet their untimely end...

Caine provides a satisfying conclusion to her long-running Morganville Vampires series. Claire Danvers returns to Morganville, Tex., with her closest friends after a stint at grad school in Boston. Morganville looks different, with spruced-up buildings and smiling townspeople. The Daylighters have taken over, and their leader plans to rid the town of vampires. Claire's friend Michael is forced into a vampire enclave, an electronic collar slapped on his neck, and his marriage to Eve nullified. The premise has a Nazi vibe, heightened by the Daylighter symbols found all over Morganville. Michael's friends, the Glass House, and the town ghost lend aid to free the imprisoned vamps. Claire's bipolar vampire boss adds dark humor to the fast-moving plot, Shane's romance with Claire progresses, and for sharp readers there's a historical Easter egg. Ages 18–up. Agent: Lucienne Diver, the Knight Agency. (Nov.)
