After living in the small English village of Finch for eight years, Lori Shepherd longs for some excitement to spice up her all-too-familiar routine. So when a Renaissance festival complete with wizards, wenches, knights, and jesters sets up in town for the summer, Lori gets her wish-and more. She soon discovers a sinister stalker, a jealous saboteur, and an evil assassin behind the scenes of King Wilfred’s Faire, and it’s up to Lori-with Aunt Dimity’s otherworldly guidance-to prevent the medieval revelry from ending in modern-day tragedy.
Review –
Maybe it’s because I’m not a fan of Renaissance Fairs that caused this book to drag for me but the characters were as charming  as always and Lori still let her imagine run wild. I’m ready for the next one.

Student Claire Danvers learns that three vampires have vanished without a trace. And after an uneasy encounter with Morganville’s latest resident, Claire is certain that the mysterious Magnus isn’t human. But is he a vampire-or something else entirely? One thing is clear: Magnus is to blame for the disappearances. And if vampires are turning into victims, what chance does a human like Claire have of stopping him?

Review –
I hadn’t read a book in this series since March of 2012 and I was easily able to pick up the storyline, unlike other series.
I enjoyed this book because it finally dealt with something that could harm the vampires and cause their end because usually it’s the humans who are at the bottom of the food chain in Morganville.
If you haven’t tried this series you should really give it a try, but start with number one, Glass Houses.
