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 will be a mini-review because I have no idea what to write in the first place. So get ready for some good rambling.
Carpe Corpus, or as my good friend Google likes to call it, “seize the body” (weird, huh?) is a fancy schmancy way of playing with the old “Carpe Diem” (seize the day) gig as an analogy to Bishop being a bitch and Claire and Shane having some business time. Thank you morganvilletexas.com for that one.
I liked this one better than the previous book. We’ve got more of the flip flop wearing Myrnin, which is always a good thing. Claire is getting more badass with each passing book, Eve is awesome as always and we have more explanations for the “magical” portals and such. A pretty interesting explanation, if I might add.
And what the hell was that ending? I’ve started to call cliffhangers “Morganvilles”, for the apparent reasons. But this one Click to view Spoiler did not end in a cliffhanger .
What the hell??!
Need to read MOAR!!
