Lord of Misrule by Rachel Caine

Lord of Misrule (Morganville Vampires, Book 5)Bishop is the new bad guy in town, and he wants to make sure that everyone knows it. He’s intent on taking control of Morganville at the expense of his daughter Amelie and her followers, and with all the power and support he has gained, it seems like there’s no one to stop him. But Claire and her friends won’t give up. There are still vampires and humans loyal to Amelie, and they refuse to go down without a fight. So as storm clouds approach, Claire and her friends prepare to defend their home, but just when they need them the most, their vampire allies are starting to disappear. In this fight to the death, anything is possible.

Lord of Misrule marks the beginning of an epic battle that could tear apart Morganville as Claire and her friends know it. There is no doubt that readers will be kept on the edges of their seats as each new battle, secret, and betrayal unfolds. As much as I enjoyed the nearly nonstop action, though, I also really liked how Caine developed her characters. Claire and Shane’s relationship in particular was wonderfully done. Even though Lord of Misrule is the fifth book in the Morganville Vampires series, Caine is still keeping things fresh with new and surprising twists and turns, and I can’t wait to see how this fight turns out in the next book, Carpe Corpus.

The Morganville Vampires series will be enjoyed by fans of the Dark Elite series by Chloe Neill.

Rating: 4.5
