Midnight Alley by Rachel Caine

" Claire has pledged herself to Amelie, the most powerful vampire in town. The protection her contract secures does little to reassure those closest to Claire. All of a sudden, people are turning up dead, a stalker resurfaces from her past, and an ancient bloodsucker extends a chilling invitation for private lessons in his secluded home. To what end, Claire soon discover - and it will give a terrifying new meaning to night school " - Book Cover.

At the end of Dead girls dance, Claire receives an invite to be Amelie's latest puppet, and has the book cover confirms, she signs the contract thinking it will protect her friends, her first mistake. Amelie the owner of Morganville as very little to care for Claire's friends, she has her own agenda and Claire's security doesn't really matter.

In the third round of this series, Claire will discover a terrible vampire secret and she will have to take some very important decisions, will Michael, Eve and Shane help her? No, 'cause they can't know!

This book was as action packed as the previous one, Jason (Eve's brother) is running Havoc in town, Dead girls and dead vampires are found at the glass house. Is it Shane's fault? Michael's signature?
Not everyone is what they seem in this book, and your best ally might turn out to be your worst enemy.

Another great book by Rachel Caine, she puts her characters in so many dead ends to push them as far as possible. Michael and Shane's relation is really nice to watch evolved and Claire is growing really fast with all the responsibilities on her shoulders.

I really liked how alliance and trust are put at stake in this book, to a certain extend we face this dilemma on a daily basis, of course we won't end up as a vampire lunch in the end, which ease up our decisions hehe.

True to herself, Caine drops a pretty impressive bomb at the very end of the book, I'm glad I have the Feast of Fools right next to me, I won't have to suffer very long!
