Parting is Such Sweet Sorrow: The Daylighters Blog Tour
Rachel Caine says goodbye to Morganville




Master storyteller Rachel Caine has her hands full with her bestselling Morganville Vampires novels coming to an end, and a brand new book (a retelling of Romeo and Juliet titled Prince of Shadows) on the way. But with speculation about Daylighters (Nov. 5, 2013), the series finale, at an all time high, she just couldn’t resist dropping some hints. She’ll be stopping by to answer your questions in the comments below, but she can neither confirm nor deny what’s true and what’s not!


Rumor #1: All the vampires are destroyed.




From Daylighters:

Oddest of all were the people. So many Morganville natives out and about, walking, chatting, taking their kids out to the small municipal park. Shopping. It looked so damn normal that it gave Claire the creeps, because their body language was completely different now … not the Morganville she’d gotten so used to seeing, that much was certain. Where before, people had walked with a kind of guarded, reflexive awareness of what was around them, these folks were almost giddy about not looking paranoid. Oblivious. Safe.

It was an improvement, she knew that; people felt happy and safe, their smiles just radiated it. But then why do I feel so bad? Claire was afraid that maybe she just didn’t want change … even change for the better. But that wasn’t it; she’d rolled with a lot of changes in Morganville thus far.
This was something deeper, and more disturbing.

They just want the vampires gone. They don’t care how it happens.





PRINCE OF SHADOWS is out February 4th!
Be sure to watch out for the official book trailer and read an excerpt!

 Rachel Caine is the New York Times bestselling author of more than thirty novels, including the Weather Warden series, the Outcast Season series, the Revivalist series, and the Morganville Vampires series. She was born at White Sands Missile Range, which people who know her say explains a lot. She has been an accountant, a professional musician, and an insurance investigator, and, until recently, carried on a secret identity in the corporate world. She and her husband, fantasy artist R. Cat Conrad, live in Texas, which so far as she knows does not actually contain any vampires.

  1. Looking good so far! Which POVs are there in Daylighters?

  2. It's Claire's POV. I felt that it was good to bring it back to really being her story at the end, and contrast how much she's grown over the series! Great question, thank you.

  3. I hate to see this series end but I can't wait to see how Ms. Caine ties it all up. Does that make sense?

    1. It does to me! It's incredibly hard on one hand to face the end of this series, because I love living in this world ... but also, it's time to let the characters go. I can feel it, and I think this is exactly the right place, and exactly the right outcome. I will come back to it to do short stories and maybe even other novels eventually, but it's been a long, frenzied 7 years of 15 books ... and I think I'll write better stories once I get some distance and a little breath from it. Here's hoping you enjoy DAYLIGHTERS as much as I enjoyed writing it! (Although I confess, I did cry. Just a little.)

    2. Morganville introduced me to Rachel and I have to say that I'm so glad I picked up that book. Rachel is one of my favorite authors and Morganville one of my favorite series. But I agree that is a good time to end it. We've seen all these characters grow and go through so much together. I'm going to miss them though!

    3. Aww, thanks, Amber! I'm delighted to hear that. I just don't want Morganville to be one of those series where people don't care anymore, and it's such a commitment when you get to be 15 books that it's tough to get new readers in the door. So time to wrap it up. Thanks for being such an awesome(sauce) supporter of the series!

  4. I'm going to miss Myrnin.

    1. ME TOO. He's taken over a significant number of brain cells in my head. I ... don't think he's going to leave.

  5. it feels so weird, morganville coming to an end. this may sound silly, but it feels like i've grown up with Claire. i was sixteen when i was given the first seven books, which i managed to read in a week, and since that year i have religiously bought these books. now i'm 18, and Claire is 18 and its the end. I just want to thank you for writing such an amazing series. wish it wasnt the end but all good things must end. *sigh*

    1. WOW. Rowan, that's amazing! I am so very glad that you connected with the series so much ... what an awesome thing that is. Hugs!

  6. I have thoroughly enjoyed this series and am sad that it is coming to a close but also excited as I wish to see how you have ended it. I will miss Myrnin and Oliver the most and hope they appear a lot in the final novel. Who would you say was your favourite character to write about?

    1. You'll be happy to know that both Myrnin and Oliver DO have a lot to do in this last book. And I think everybody's going to get at least a little bit of what they want out of it!

      As to favorite character ... so tough. I think in some ways I really enjoyed writing Myrnin the most, though Shane and Eve are both very close seconds. (And probably arguing over who is the favorite.)

    2. I'm glad to hear that. At least after the Morganville Vampires I can look forward to reading Prince of Shadows when that comes out!

    1. Thank you so much ... it's been SUCH a great run with all the (possibly insane) numbers of books I've written since 2003 ... and more to come, of course. I'm hoping that you'll like what I do next just as much. Hugs and my sincere gratitude for being so lovely!

  8. Hey, did you guys notice that the Prince of Shadows website (above) has a countdown clock?! I'm so excited! That's NOT the book release. That's when we're going to reveal some cool content ... with new content being revealed at regular intervals.

  9. Hi Rachel, I have not yet read this series, though I have the first 8 books or so. I bought them for my stepdaughter, but want to read them myself as well. I did enjoy your Weather Wardens very much. Good luck with all the new ideas and stories and characters.

    1. Thanks so much, Aurian -- I've had lots of moms tell me they started reading it to pre-qualify it for their kids, and then ended up fighting over who got the books first later. :) So I hope you enjoy them just as much. Thanks for stopping by today!

  10. I am a huge fan of this series. Its sad to see it end, but I do understand they can't go on forever.
    Rachel do you plan to compile all the short stories into one book? I'd love that.
    and
    Do you think readers will be happy with the way you end the series?

    1. Hi, thanks for coming out to talk! :)

      I've been talking to my publisher about putting all the short stories into a book, but I don't want to just sell stuff people already have -- I want to include at least another 1/3 of the book of original content! So I'm planning to work on that early next year.

      I think that if you've been with me through the whole series, you'll be pretty happy with where it ends up, yes. I think all the characters got really good resolutions, or at least most -- there are a WHOLE lot of characters! So I did the best I could.

      Would love to hear what you think when you read it though!

      Rachel

    1. Awww, thank you! I'm very honored and touched that my stories touched you, and I am sorry I have to end it ... but it's time. (Even Myrnin told me so.) Love and hugs -- and I promise to give you more good stuff soon.
