Lord of Misrule by Rachel Caine

"In the college town of Morganville, vampires and humans coexist in (relatively) bloodless harmony. Then comes Bishop, the 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 cyclone clouds hover, promising a storm of devastating proportions as student Claire Danvers and her friends prepare to defend Morganville against elements both natural and unnatural. " - product description (amazon)

All hell broke loose, and Morganville is now at war. Two gangs of vampires are struggling for power and some lunatic humans are trying to get their piece out of the pie.

Claire, Shane, Michael and Eve once again find themselves knee deep in trouble. The fifth round of the series is kind of different though, we are used to having all four of them together most of the time, but in that book we barely see them together. I read from other reviewers that it was a down side for them, but I actually liked it. It allow us to discover another perspective on the main characters.

Claire and Shane's relation also evolve nicely in this book, but I have to admit all this chastity is kind of getting on my nerves, I wish they would get it over with already lol.

I liked liked the atmosphere in this book, you feel the stress, tension and despair in every page your read and the story really take you to another level.

True to herself, Rachel Caine dropped another bomb at the end of that book and I truly can't wait to read Carpe Corpus; I am really wondering how the gang will get out of that one!
