Feast of Fools by Rachel Caine

Feast of Fools (Morganville Vampires, Book 4)It’s never a good thing when strangers come to Morganville. So, Claire Danvers knows nothing good can happen when her parents show up on the doorstep of the Glass House—along with a Mr. Bishop, who claims to be Amelie’s father and is probably the most evil vampire now in town. Politics in Morganville are about to become a lot more complicated now that Mr. Bishop has upset the balance of power, and Claire is literally caught in the middle of all of it. Although Claire is pledged to Amelie, she finds herself turning to Oliver, allied once more with Morganville’s founder in the face of a common enemy, when Amelie proves to be unhelpful in times of need. Then there’s Mr. Bishop and his cronies, particularly Ysandre, who thinks it’s her right to torment Claire’s boyfriend Shane. It may only be false hope that Claire and all those she cares about will make it out safe and alive.

The Morganville Vampires series is fast becoming my favorite source of vampire guilty pleasure. This series is honestly one of the more unusual, fascinating, and undoubtedly exciting vampire series out there, and despite having many installments, the story just never gets old. In Feast of Fools, Caine incorporates several new villains which bring the danger in Morganville to the next level. I absolutely loved being along for the ride as Claire navigated so many new perils. The reader will be able to sense how the situation is heading downhill the whole time, and although I was able to guess ahead of the plot several times, I was not bothered by this, because the entire story is just plain thrilling. The disastrous ending scene, instead of bothering me as enormous cliffhangers normally do, just makes me want to get my hands on Lord of Misrule, the next installment in the series.

The Morganville Vampires series is sure to appeal of fans of the Dark Elite series by Chloe Neill and the Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare.

Rating: 4.5
