While developing a new system to maintain Morganville's defenses, student Claire Danvers discovers a way to amplify vampire mental powers. Through this, she's able to reestablish the field around this vampire-infested Texas college town that protects it from outsiders.
But the new upgrades have an unexpected consequence: people inside the town begin to slowly forget who they are - even the vampires. Soon, the town's little memory problem has turned into a full-on epidemic. Now Claire needs to figure out a way to pull the plug on her experiment - before she forgets how to save Morganville.

"Claire's tough-girl attitude may remind adult readers of Rachel Morgan and her world of human-vampire interactions." (Booklist)
I was pleasantly surprised after reading each of the 9 books in this series, that I couldn't wait for the next book! Except for rare cases like this series, I get bored by the 4th or 5th book in most series since it seems to get more and more difficult to top the last one(or in some cases, the first one). This entire series kept me coming back for more with a great balance of character, suspense, intrigue, comic relief, and just enough romance. I'm impressed! I hope she keeps them coming! I can't wait for the next one!
All the fun and wit of Sookie, all the romance of Twilight with enough blood to keep it interesting. Great reader, I loved this series...............where do I go from here?
This is a great series but I wish the author would remember what has happened in her previous books. She has changed names of some people and changed when someone in the book was shot but she says the person was stabbed. It gets annoying after awhile. Over all a good series.
I love it! It keeps me interested all the way.
Most definitely. I am going to continue with next book.
Hello! I’m a twenty-seven year old, avid audiobook listener. I prefer listening to a book instead of watching television. I usually read a book first and then listen to the audiobook instead of rereading it. That way if I get pulled away from the story I’m not missing too much.
Don't Forget Me
I enjoyed the fact that in this book Claire is treated like the other residents of Morganville. In Rachel Cain's opening she states that the residents of the Glass House are seen/treated differently than the other residents in Morganville. They do not live under the protection of a vampire - Michael doesn't count - yet they do not usually have the same ramifications than other residents of Morganville would face in a similar situation. I believe that this is because Amelie recognizes what an asset Claire's mind is to their town.
However, in this book we see Claire kill a vampire, which is a capital offense regardless of the situation surrounding the kill. She is sentenced to work until she completes the "project" or dies trying, with absolutely no rest. Claire, being Claire is able to complete the project but it takes some time to realize that there is something wrong with what she created.
Seeing Claire's flaws made her more real as a character, since she doesn't really make any huge mistakes like she did in this book.
My favorite scene was when Michael didn't remember the last few years and wondered who Claire was and what she was doing in his parent's house.
The past is right around the corner.
Cynthia Halloway does not disappoint. As usual she does a wonderful job with the performance of this story.
