Book Review: Bitter Blood

                    Today's review is on Bitter Blood by Rachel Caine

It takes a really special book to bring a tear to my eyes, but I have to say that most, if not all, of the Morganville Vampires books have done just that. They seem to grab a hold of my heartstrings at one point or another as I'm reading. And how many book series that are at the #13 mark can do that? Not many. Only a skilled and talented writer can pull it off. And believe you me, I have read a lot of series that fizzle out long before even hitting the #10 mark.

The Draug have been defeated, and you would think that everything would go back to normal, or at least Morganville normal, but that's NOT the case. Unknown to everyone, Amelie's blood sister Naomi did not die. She was hell bent on becoming the "Queen" of the town in the last book, and now she'll do ANYTHING she has to do to achieve that goal. But she has no allies in Morganville, or does she?

Using her "gift" against the new Mayor, one of Oliver's vampires, and Oliver himself, she set's in motion her plan to not only destroy Amelie, but to also get rid of Myrnin and destroy the relationships of our four hero's.

The danger in Morganville is something the human residents have come to expect, but when a group of ghost hunting humans start poking around, it just gets worse. Especially when the ghosts themselves come out in the open and reveal themselves.

I really hope that there is at least another installment in this series. I didn't much like the ending of this one. It didn't leave me hanging on the edge of the cliff this time, but it did leave me wanting to know "What happens next?"

Book Description: via Amazon

For years, the human and vampire residents of Morganville, Texas, have managed to co-exist in peace. But now that the threat to the vampires has been defeated, the human residents are learning that the gravest danger they face is the enemy within…

Thanks to the eradication of the parasitic creatures known as the draug, the vampires of Morganville have been freed of their usual constraints. With the vampires indulging their every whim, the town’s human population is determined to hold on to their lives by taking up arms. But college student Claire Danvers isn’t about to take sides, considering she has ties to both the humans and the vampires.

To make matters worse, a television show comes to Morganville looking for ghosts, just as vampire and human politics collide. Now, Claire and her friends have to figure out how to keep the peace without ending up on the nightly news…or worse.

  1. Can't wait for this book. I seriously hope that in some way Rachel can bring in a love triangle with Clair, Shane, and Myrnin! Myrnin is my most favorite character please Rachel bring the drama!
