The Morganville Vampires - Feast of Fools by Rachel Caine

The wait is over. dig into the feast...

In the town of Morganville, vampires and humans live in relative peace. Student Claire Danvers has never been convinced, though especially with the arrival of Mr. Bishop, an ancient, old-school vampire who cares nothing about harmony. What he wants from the town's living and its dead is unthinkably sinister. It's only at a formal ball, attended by vampires and their human dates, that Claire realizes the elaborately evil trap he's set for Morganville.
This is the fourth book in The Morganville Vampire series. One of these days I really must read her adult series, but for now, I find these books enjoyable enough. My biggest problem with reviewing this series is that the books all run together. Really, it could just be one big book. This means that I run a big risk of spoilers. I also have to wait until January of next year to find out what happens next!

So, I went browsing, and I guess I haven't reviewed one of these books since the very first one... Way to be a slacker, huh? So, I guess as far as my blog says, I never read books two and three. The series centres around Claire Danvers. She is living in Morganville with three of her friends: Eve, Michael, and Shane. They have lived in the town the majority of their lives, but Claire only came to town to be a student and got swept up in what it means to live in Morganville.

While this is an enjoyable series, it will never been the best series going. I have no doubt that I will read it to its conclusion, but it is so typical young adult. I am starting to think that I am never going to really be a young adult. I never really liked the books for my age when I was a young adult, and trying to read them now that I am older doesn't always work the best for me either. I have enjoyed some that I have read, of course, and I will read more, but I think I would rather read one of my fantasy books.

Anyway, this is a good series and this book wasn't any worse or better than the books that came before it! I have no doubt that I will be buying the new book in the series in the New Year.

I was wrong. I reviewed book one and two of this series. I am just blind!


  1. I am hoping to get around to this series soon. I have the first book waiting on my TBR shelf.

    Some shameless self promotion coming up... I am hosting my first challenge in 2009 and would like it if you could check it out. It's the Manga Challenge and should be a nice easy way to try something new.

  2. It's a pretty good series.

    Manga, huh? I have read some, but I don't own any. I generally only join challenges that clean off mount TBR, but I will check it out.
