WOW: Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine, highlighting the upcoming releases being eagerly awaited by all of us bibliophiles.

This week's WOW is:

Bite Club (Morganville Vampires, Book 10)
First of all, I think that B&N will have all my money on May 3rd--Bite Club (Morganville Vampires, Book 10)Dead Reckoning (Sookie Stackhouse, Book 11) and The Unbearable Lightness of Dragons: A Novel of the Light Dragons will be released that day!!

The Morganville Vampires series is another favorite of mine.  Although technically a YA series, the series should appeal to all fans of vampire lit.  The series builds on itself, one novel often starting just days after the last ended, so if you're not familiar with Morganville, get started with Glass Houses (Morganville Vampires, Book 1).  

Rachel Caine has created a very interesting world, one where vampires and humans lead an uneasy co-existence in Morganville but the vampires' existence is unknown to the rest of the world.  Set in a small Texas college town, the story focuses on four friends, Claire, Eve, Shane and Michael, who are determined to find a balance among the vampires and humans, as well as battling outside forces that are trying to destroy the vampires, humans or both.  Here's the Goodreads summary for Bite Club (Morganville Vampires, Book 10):

After discovering that vampires populate her town, college student Claire Danvers knows that the undead just want to live their lives. But someone else wants them to get ready to rumble.

There's a new extreme sport getting picked up on the Internet: bare- knuckle fights pitting captured vampires against each other-or humans. Tracking the remote signal leads Claire- accompanied by her friends and frenemies-to discover that what started as an online brawl will soon threaten everyone in Morganville...
Bite Club (Morganville Vampires, Book 10) is scheduled for release on May 3rd!
