Official Description: This is book #4 of the Morganville Vampires series
The wait is over. dig into the feast…
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.
This was not my favorite book in this series so far, but that’s ok because I still enjoyed it. I do understand that this book is ‘young adult’ but still there is way too much sexual tension between Claire and Shane that they just need to do the deed and get it over with, or I guess they can wait until she’s 17 I don’t know she doesn’t seem like a 16-year-old. Ok, the big plot in this book was so obvious from 10 miles away you know what is going to happen, I don’t know why no one in the book realized what was going on but it was a, slap you in the face, kind of obvious. It’s been a few months and I’ve read a few books so it took me some time to refresh about what was going on in the beginning of the book but I remembered pretty quickly and it does pick up right where we let off. Also it has a cliffhanger. I hate cliffhangers all of these books seem to end in them. Or they just end and you could paste all these books together for one massively huge continuous story. My favorite character by far is Myrnin, he is just so awesome and incredibly quirky and just out there, crazy, brilliant and doesn’t care about making himself a fool. Love him, I hope to see more in the future. I hope this story progresses a little further too because it does seem a bit much, but there are like 12 of these books published with more on the way, I have a lot of catching up to do.
“Maybe I should, I don’t know leave? Because this is starting to sound like one of those reality shows I don’t want to be in. Maybe you guys want to take turns in the confessional booth.”
