Book Review: Carpe Corpus

Title: Carpe Corpus
Series: Morganville Vampires (Book 6)
Author: Rachel Caine
Published: 2009

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

My Thoughts: With no signs of Amelie and her allies, Bishop can do everything he wants with the town of Morganville, and its human and vampire residents. Claire Danvers and her friend Michael is forced against their wills to work for Amelie. As a result of this their friend Eve is now not talking to either of them.

But there is a group planning to fight and defeat Bishop, but since Claire is working for Bishop, they refuse to share their plans with her. So Claire sees no other choice than to continue following Bishop's orders to get what she wants the most - visit Shane. Needless to say, Claire is very frustrated and alone during this book, and she's not the only one!

Just like in the previous book, Morganville is in chaos! The battle isn't as intense this time though, not a first... but then the book ends with an exploding, dramatic conclusion, as the Morganville books usually does!

Rating: 4 of 5
