Edition: Paperback, 352 pages, published July 10th 2009 by Allison & Busby
Synopsis: In the college town of Morganville, vampires and humans coexist in (relatively) bloodless harmony. Then comes Bishop, the master vampire who threatens to abolish all order, revive the forces of the evil dead, and let chaos rule. But Bishop isn’t the only threat.
Violent black cyclone clouds hover, promising a storm of devastating proportions as student Claire Danvers and her friends prepare to defend Morganville against elements both natural and unnatural.
It’s been a while since I read book 4 of this long series, but I managed to dive back into Morganville pretty easily! I’ll admit a few little things did confuse me though, so I won’t hang around in picking up book 6. You can read my other reviews here: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4
The plot…I liked it! I liked how the book only took place over a number of days but was still very involving. It felt extremely real and raw.
The characters…I will always adore. They have their ups and down, but they should. Being teenagers is hard enough, and with vampires running around town, they’ve got more problems than usual. Shane can be a little immature (and a bit of a dick), but he has those times that he melts my heart (Mini spoiler here!) just as he does Claire’s (Spoiler over)…and I can never dislike him for long!
The writing…I’m still hooked. I would still say The Dead Girls’ Dance is my favourite book so far, but I still enjoyed this one.
Something I liked…it’s hard to pick one single thing with the Morganville books. You easily slip into a rhythm while reading them and that’s the number one thing I adore.
Something I disliked..there is a lot of characters in this book. I’m not saying that’s a bad thing…but I do like having the focus on the main four, and I would have liked some more scenes of them alone!
My rating is…
