In the small college town of Morganville, vampires and humans lived in (relative) peace—until all the rules got rewritten when the evil vampire Bishop arrived, looking for the lost book of vampire secrets. He’s kept a death grip on the town ever since. Now an underground resistance is brewing, and in order to contain it, Bishop must go to even greater lengths. He vows to obliterate the town and all its inhabitants—the living and the undead. Claire Danvers and her friends are the only ones who stand in his way. But even if they defeat Bishop, will the vampires ever be content to go back to the old rules, after having such a taste of power?
Another long wait is over, Book 6 is here, and I just love book stores who release books earlier than its original release date. Book 6 is where the cliff hanger from Lord of Misrule ends. At first you'll get the feeling that our beloved Claire is seriously in a very pitiful, helpless situation. Our beloved Shane is in captivity / hostage and Mr. Bishop is just being Mr. Bishop and the usual gang of the Glass House are obviously on their own. But not for long, be patient. Shane was set free but with a heartbreaking consequence, One of the good vampires die and I found myself being extremely sad about that. It has new characters, new weirdness, Monica Morell back to her usual bitchy bully predatory self and WTF moments that at some point I thought wouldn't quite fit with the whole plot but worked. Yes im talking about the introduction of Ada... So who's really killing the girls in town? Nope it wouldn't be the one that you would most likely suspect. This is my favorite book in the series, The characters are fully developed and it marks the change of everything. And did Shane and Claire finally do it? Nope not going to give out any clues, read and find out. Are the vampires noe really cured? Is this new equalized status of vamps and human going to work out for the best? Who's the next bad guy?... And now I'm back to waiting...
