Midnight Bites by Rachel Caine

Midnight Bites - Tales of Morganville (Morganville Vampires)MIDNIGHT BITES, the new Morganville Vampires short story anthology! It will bring together almost everything that I've written in short form about Morganville ... though I did leave out some of the original "diary" entries that appeared on an earlier version of the Morganville website, simply because they were just scenes and not stories, and were generally really short snippets. This is all short fiction, and it's been carefully organized into the timeline, so you can read from the earliest adventures (some of which belong to vampires) all the way through some post-Daylighters goodies.
MIDNIGHT BITES includes a total of more than 50,000 words of brand new content, which makes me very happy indeed (and I hope will also make you happy, too). From stories featuring our favorite bunny-slipper-wearing mad scientist to a mystery solved by police chief Hannah Moses, I think you'll find this is a diverse group of stories that will shine a little more light in the murkiest corners of Morganville.

More stories from one of my favourite series? Yes please! A mix of origin stories and in-between extracts, Midnight Bites offers more to Morganville. Here we see something from all our favourites: stories from Myrnin's and Amelie's enigmatic point of view, a glimpse into the police department with Hannah Mosses and Richard Morrell, and some Michael and Shane complicated bromance.

I loved all of this, it was funny and dangerous and everything I would expect from Morganville. Just about anything extra from this town I would love to hear about, but I especially liked the perspective from other side characters, like Amelie, Hannah and Eve. Yeah, definitely Eve, she's just a little bit crazy but it's so much fun inside her head!

As well as before and during the main series, we also had a few stories set post-Daylighters, which just goes to show how durable and insane this town is. Hilarious, sweet and heart-pounding dangerous, this is a must for any fan.
