In Rachel Caine's fourth Morganville Vampires novel, the arrival of an old-school vampire to Claire Danvers's college town threatens the relative harmony that exists between the living and the dead.
In the fourth installment in Rachel Caine's best-selling young adult paranormal romance series, an evil predator creeps into the small, wired town of Morganville, Texas. A bad ass, old-school vampire named Bishop arrives in town and self-proclaims his Holy right to the throne of Morganville, and he will do anything to get it...even if it means the death of his own daughter, Amelie, the Founder (aka, vampire queen). I thought this book, like Midnight Alley, dragged along the same plot line. It was, however, better than Midnight Alley. In Midnight Alley, a new character named Myrnin was created. Myrnin is a crazy, manic-depressive vampire whose moods change in an instant. Myrnin can be happy and jolly one minute, but then at the drop of a hat, he goes on a murderous, psychotic rampage (I'm joking about the drop of a hat...but not about the murderous, psychotic rampages...those can happen for no reason at all...)
I enjoyed the fact that vampires were shown in a slightly different light during this book and next two to follow. Vampires become ill, sickened by their immortality, poisoned by their own blood, and there is only one permanent cure: the blood of Bishop, the most powerful and oldest vampire known to man....
Up next: Lord of Misrule (The Morganville Vampires, #5)
