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?
OMG! So much happened in this book that I don’t even know where to start.
I hate to give away spoilers for books, but with so much awesome story, I just have to. First of all, finally Shane and Claire step up their relationship! I didn’t think it would ever happen since it was a young adult book. There isn’t alot of detail, since it is a young adult, but the author did an amazing job with it that even adults will love it. The battle between Bishop and the town, including Amelie, goes down as well. We lose an important character in the battle and be prepared to have the tissues handy. We get to see almost everyone that the author has involved in the previous books come into play with this one. The ending is so sweet and leaves me to wonder what is in the jewelry box Shane gives Claire. That is about the only cliffhanger that I am dying to know! The way the author wrote this book, it made me think that this one was suppose to be the final book though. We all know that it isn’t, but at least you won’t be in such a hurry to get to the next one. Well, maybe. Well okay you will!
Outstanding Book That Will Stay On My Bookshelf
