Blurb: 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?

Review: Man, that's a hella of a book! So much more action and they just keep getting better! I never thought that they could, but they really do.
Myrnin kept having me laughing like a little girl because I can really imagine him in real life and he would be so much fun to have around the place.
Amelie, wow, I felt sorry for her at the ending, and the ending about Sam almost had me crying, it was so horrible! :(
Mmm, I still love Michael and Shane and they just get loads more hotter!!
The plot really is amazing, and I love that Rachel Caine is taking risks with how the story is planning out and really taking it to the max. I absolutely love her style of writing as the books have progressed because I actually feel a real connection with the characters which I absolutely love.
Also, in the UK versions there are short stories, and I really enjoyed reading that, but I have my suspicions about Vance..
Sorry for the short review but because I've read all of these books back to back they kind of merge into each other! :)

Rating: 5 stars
