Series: The Morganville Vampires (Book 4)
Synopsis: In the town of Morganville, vampires and humans live in relative peace. Student Claire Danvers has never been convinced, though especially with the arrival of Mr. Bishop, an ancient, old-school vampire who cares nothing about harmony. What he wants from the town's living and its dead is unthinkably sinister. It's only at a formal ball, attended by vampires and their human dates, that Claire realizes the elaborately evil trap he's set for Morganville.
Review: The book begins with the arrival of Bishop, the vampire 'father' of Morganville founder Amelie. Unlike the vampires of Morganville who live in relative peace with humans, Bishop and his companions have no such desire, so it's with trepidation that they are received into Morganville. So as Amelie hosts a welcome feast for Bishop, both vampires and humans alike can only speculate as to what his true motives are...
Still absolutely loving this series, the books are just so action packed, and keep you gripped the whole way through. In this book, I loved how everyone came together against a common enemy, although I just cannot stand the character of Bishop, but I suppose that's how it's meant to be. I'm seriously falling in love with Myrnin though, he is just too funny even though he's so scatty! He's definitely one of my favourite characters in the series. This book is a tad slower going than the others that precede it, but it's no less interesting. Instead of the non-stop action, it focuses a lot of the personal problem that Amelie and Myrnin have that Claire is helping with, and how that's developing. I can't wait to see where the storyline with Bishop goes in the next book.
