206. Carpe Corpus by Rachel Caine...

carpe corpusAbout the book:
Welcome to Morganville, Texas. Don't stay out after dark.

In the small college town of Morganville, vampires and humans lived in (relative) peace--until all the rules got rewritten when 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 be content to go back to the old rules after having had such a taste of power?

drey's thoughts:
Boy, did this book take it's time to make its way into my grubby mitts... But, hey, it got here, and it got read. Quick. Because I just had to know what happens.

Picking up from Lord of Misrule's misadventures, life in Morganville in this installment is definitely not fun--for humans or vamps. In fact, it's pretty glum. Which it would be, with an evil (say it in that funny pitch, and stretch out the "e") overlord sowing fear and chaos. And no, you still can't leave.

As if that's not bad enough for Claire, consider that she's got this magical tattoo that responds to Bishop's summons, her boyfriend's in a cage in the town square, her friend Eve thinks she's a traitor, and Michael's one of Bishop's. And she has to run errands for Bishop. Because he thinks it's fun to torture her like that...

Carpe Corpus has Claire and her gang taking back their town, with help from some of their vamps (of course). And the action will keep you turning the pages until you're at the end, when you let out--finally--a sigh of relief. Relief that book number six is just as satisfying as books one through five. A few more things are let out of the bag, and you will--as I do--wait till Fade Out gets into your hands.
