Carpe Corpus by Rachel Caine

Carpe Corpus (Morganville Vampires, Book 6)The war between Bishop and Amelie rages on in Morganville. Bishop still has the upper hand, but Amelie is building up an underground resistance with help from her ally Claire Danvers and her friends. Living in Morganville is more dangerous than even, especially now that Claire has been forcibly bound to the hated Bishop. It’s hard to tell who is on which side, and who’s a double agent, especially with the half crazy Myrnin running around. But this battle must end once and for all, and it will. But where does Morganville go from there?

Carpe Corpus finishes up the all out war between Bishop and Amelie that began in Lord of Misrule. I have to say that Caine handled it very well. There is, of course, non-stop action and some character development on behalf of Claire and Shane, as was to be expected, but Carpe Corpus does not feel like a repeat of the previous novels in the Morganville Vampires series, which is a pretty large feat considering that this novel is the sixth of the series. I think this is because of the wonderful and somewhat wacky cast of characters that populate Morganville, particularly including the vampire Myrnin and his vampiric computer creation Ada. I am a little sad that the big battle finishes by the close of this book, because I don’t know how much more exciting Morganville can get, but I still look forward to reading the next in the series.

The Morganville Vampires series appeals to readers who also liked the Dark Elite series by Chloe Neill.

Rating: 4.5
