Carpe Corpus (Morganville Vampires Book 06)
by Rachel Caine


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?

This is the 6th book in the Morganville Vampire series. It took me three attempts to start this series and now I am glad I did. At first I thought the series was quite boring and slow but I couldn’t have been more wrong. It started off slow but now its quite interesting. The book is based in Morganville where the last vampires in the world live. The vampires control the town completely and humans are virtual slaves to the vampires. In the previous books a vampire turf war had started between Amelie and her father Bishop. This book covers the final stages of the war. It doesn’t have a lot of blood and gore, which is a good thing. But it does cover a lot of soul searching on the part of the major human characters. Can’t cover more about the plot without giving out spoilers so will stop here. Final recommendation: A good read. Read the other books in the series before this one otherwise half the book won’t make sense.
