Okay! Where to start?
Well let's start with the fact that this is the SIXTH book in the series! Takes talent to keep a series going with such greatness in all six books! And, let me tell you, Rachel Caine did. Every book is perfect with action, teenagers, romance, vampires, and some bad ass vamp slayers in the mix!
The scene: Morganville Texas is run by vamps. With the founder Amelie (vamp) there never was any mass killings. Sure a few unexplained disappearances but nothing as bad as what Bishop does when he come to town!
The Villain: Bishop. This bad vamp is Amelie's father! But instead of a vision of living( well...as living as vampires can get) the town he wants to destroy it and get revenge from his daughter. Bad childhood much?
Problem: Well all the vamps (not Bishop) have disease compared to altimerz ( I can NOT spell that). They grow weaker by the years, not being able to create other vamps, and going seriously crazy. Well, Claire( main character) and one of her crazy boss vamps, Myrnin, are expected to find a cure. They did! Bishop's blood.
This book was AWESOME. Perfect sequel. I couldn't put it down of course, and I even cried a little (not telling you when!). The romance is fabulous! Rachel can defiantly write romance in a new way that keeps you loving the romance novels. She writes in any way that's just different (better?) than other authors I've read. She knows how to describe feelings in all way whether it's love, lust, anger, sadness, or happiness.
Her vamp lore is magnificent and realistic even! Her characters are fully developed and when they cry you cry. Even if it's a bad guy!
Discription ( taken from amazon): 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?
