Morganville. Texas. Just south of normal.

In the college town of Morganville, vampires and humans coexist in (relatively) bloodless harmony. Then comes Bishop, a master vampire who threatens to abolish all order, revive the forces of the evil dead, and let chaos rule. But Bishop isn’t the only threat.

Violent black clouds promise a storm of devastating proportions. As student Claire Danvers and her friends prepare to defend Morganville against the elements—both natural and unnatural—the unexpected happens: Morganville’s vampires begin to vanish one by one. Discovering why leads Claire to one last choice: swear allegiance to Bishop... or die.

So it’s another three-star rating from my side. I was hoping Lord of Misrule will finally be THE five-star Morganville book, but it seems like we’re back to the “could have been so much better” state.

I have no idea what went wrong with this book. It had a pretty good, yet weird, start but by the end things got confusing and messed up. There are a bunch of characters that grew even more in my eyes, Claire, Shane and most importantly Myrnin. Michael and Eve were still great but I feel like I didn’t get enough of them, especially when it comes to Michael. Poor Eve ended up carrying a huge load on her shoulders. I won’t get into details regarding that, go ahead and read the book if you want to know what I’m talking about.

I can’t seem to know how to review this book so I guess I’ll leave it at that. It was good, but could have been much much better. The ending was a mess. Really. But what am I expecting? It’s Rachel Caine after all. Let’s see what Morganville #6 is going to throw in our way.
