Review: Lord of Misrule by Rachel Caine

Author: Rachel Caine
Pages: 256
Publisher: Signet
Genre: YA Paranormal
Source: Purchased
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.
I say this every time about the Morganville Vampire books, but it's true: Rachel Caine has yet to disappoint me. Lord of Misrule is the 5th book in this series, and it's still as action packed and full of intrigue and suspense as the first book.

I don't know how Rachel does it, but she manages to pack quite the punch is such a small little book. Everything is basically in chaos in Lord of Misrule. Bishop is still in power, there are rebellions springing up, and a hurricane is steadily making its way towards Morganville. Claire, Shane, Michael and Eve are all caught in the middle, and are being used as pawn pieces in a greater game between Amelie and Bishop, the winner of which could determine life or death for the town.

Rachel's writing style stays consistent with the first 4 books, and the action is never lacking. There are, as always, some very steamy scenes between Shane and Claire (which I loved). I definitely, definitely recommend you pick up Lord of Misrule if you haven't yet. 4 out of 5 stars.
