Well, obviously, Bishop would be pissed. And probably homicidal, not that he wasn’t mostly that all the time. Besides, what she was carrying might not be anything bad. Right?

A car cruised past her, and she sensed the driver staring at her, then speeding up. Nothing to see here but a sad, stupid evil pawn, she thought bitterly.

Carpe Corpus begins soon after Lord of Misrule ends. Claire's stuck in the middle and forced to work on the wrong side, Bishop's side. Amelie has vanished, thanks to Myrnin, who just happens to be sitting pretty right next to.... you guessed it, Bishop. Michael was forced to stand at, yep... right again Bishop's side. Eve's pretty upset with everyone, including Claire and Shane's stuck in jail with his dear old dad. Did I paint you a pretty picture yet?

If you thought living in and with a town run by vampires couldn't get any worse, well you're wrong there. Things are about to bubble over for everyone. Caine continue to work her magic in this new installment. She's good at leaving me guessing as to what's lurking around the next page.

One highlight was the introduction of Ada. At first I thought, oh right, yeah come on already! However, since I really do enjoy this series I kept reading and found that her character was kind of a creepy perfection that fit right in with, well everyone and everything. I mean why not have... wait, I won't tell you just who or what she is. I don't want to ruin it for anyone who's yet to read.

It was nice to see all the characters growing and changing. The new trials Claire and her friends - human and vampire will face. Oh, let's not forget we get to see the true Myrnin, who gets cured in this book. I'm looking forward to seeing more of him in the future.

The book ends on a happy note. No cliffhangers like in previous books. I for one don't think things will stay too cheery for to long, I mean we are talking about Morganville.

I have the next book - Fade Out ready to read, and then Kiss of Death on order. If you're new to this series, be sure to start at the beginning - Glass Houses. Enjoy! (...)

This represents Book Six in "The Morganville Vampires" series. Should you read the other volumes before this one? I didn't feel that it took too much to know what was going on. The author, Rachel Caine, provided context for this book so that the naïve reader of Book Six could navigate the characters pretty handily.

Morganville represents a community that had come under the rule of vampires. One rather poignant fact--the vampires are suffering from some sort of illness, and the population of vampires has begun to decline as a result. For awhile, their power over the citizenry was certainly authoritarian, but vaguely tolerable (at least as I read this volume). However, something like a coup d'état has taken place and the nasty vampire, Bishop, has taken over. He has imprisoned people, including the main character's (a 17 year old named Claire) boyfriend, Shane.

Claire tries to figure out how to save her young man (it looks pretty bleak for Shane's future). She wonders why the other vampires seem to have so supinely bowed to Bishop. As the novel unfolds, though, we see that there is resistance among the vampires, with a countercoup likely to take place. The slow development of events adds a nice element to this story, as the plot moved in not always predictable ways. Tension does build.

Some of the features that readers of the series might find interesting (or not!)--the consummation of Claire's relationship with Shane, addressing the disease afflicting the vampires, the changing relationship of vampires to humans in Morganville. . . .

For me, this book does not resonate. But I doubt that the book is pitched at someone like me. Youthful readers interested in paranormal fiction, I think, would find this a very nice read. For them, this book would "hit the spot." So, I give this 4 stars for the likeliest audience (for me, I would rate it lower, but that's unfair to the author!).

I loved this series! The characters were great and I cant wait for #9 to be on my doorstep any minuute. But then I have to wait for #10 for a while. If they ever put this series into a movie I could see Myrnin played by Gary Oldman, and Emelie by Helen Mirren. They would be perfect for those Characters. I cant see who the others would be though. I LOVE Myrnin's character, he is hilarious. Very funny! Three thumbs up for Myrnin being the comic relief character. I wish I could live in Morganville. The description of everything was great! It made me want to be there, it made me sad when the books were over, and I had many emotions while reading this series. I am not a very emotional person, but this book would get me pissed, happy, sad, crying, laughing my ass off. It was well written even though I am an adult and would have like to have more sexually explicit material in it, face it thats what women want.

But this book didnt have any and it did lead to the fact that they were having sex, but the characters waited until it was legal,showing some morals and values for the younger crowd to read. It is a very good book for anyone I would say 13 and up to read. Depending on their own maturity level of course.

I however did have a problem with the seller MOVIE MARS, they made a big problem and I had to put a claim in with Amazon to get the problem solved. It went that far because the seller didnt care about customer service like they should have and I will never buy a book from them again! And I am buying a huge amount of books right now, the classics, and he will not benefit from my patronage because of his lack of integity. DONT BUY FROM THEM!

This is yet another amazing installment in the Morganville Vampire series. Ms. Caine is wonderful at making sure each book moves smoothly along with the main story line of Morganville while inserting a specific story within as well. Her ideas and imagination are breath taking at times.

I originally began reading this series as I was testing out the first book for appropriateness for my then 12 year old daughter. I was hooked after the first few chapters and now get just as excited about the new books coming out as she does. This is definitely a book I would recommend to girls of all ages. This series is also good for guys as well. My son recently ran out of books to read and picked up book one advising he would settle for a "chick book." He is so entangled now he is ripping through each book in a day or two.
