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.
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?"

Thanks to the

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
