Ramping Up the Action

  • Jun 27, 2009
Lord of Misrule, Book 5 in the Morganville Vampires series, picks up with the town of Morganville literally burning around the heads of our quartet of friends: Claire, Shane, Michael, and Eve. Amelie, the vampire in charge of Morganville, must fight against her father, Bishop, in order to maintain control of the town, and she must rely on not just Claire and her friends but also the loyalty of the other vamps in town, including the ever unpredictable Myrnin. But as time passes, it becomes clear that Bishop's got his own hold on some of the vamps, and many of the humans are in revolt as well. Claire and her friends must make life or death decisions in order to protect not only themselves but the ones they love from certain destruction in the vampire battle.

Lord of Misrule is fast paced and action packed; filled with its own drama, it's also a bridge to the ultimate fate of the vampires in Morganville. Claire's called upon to help Amelie but finds herself in grave danger, facing down Bishop and his minions even while enduring a major storm. The chaos keeps coming and naturally the book ends on a cliffhanger, making it very good for me to have #6 close at hand. I love the depth of the relationship between Claire and Shane, and I love how Claire's learned to stand up for herself and those she loves. Her parents are fairly extraneous to the story but everyone else is present and accounted for; I can hardly wait to find out what side Myrnin is really on. Definitely fun and entertaining and I'm ready for more!

I will be the first to say that thus far this series was a little dry and boring compared to others out there. The drama and action are really stepped up 100% in this book where the town of Morganville is ripping its self apart between two vampire factions and the human mobs. This book holds tons of twists and turns and some very compelling chapters that make you want to read on where the previous 4 books lacked in that department. The reader finds out just how wickid Bishop really is, and a more …

I'm reluctant to put to paper (so to speak) my thoughts of Lord of Misrule because I'm honestly torn up. I don't think I can put words that don't involve 'freaked out' and 'oh gods no' and 'OH NO NOT THAT'. Bishop is...horrifying. Not just the vampire himself, but his whole ideology is so twisted and warped and inhuman I felt chills. And you know how some evil vampires have moments of weakness? Not Bishop. Oh no. He's kind of like a Vampire version of those Chuck Norris facts--you know the ones. …
