I try to express only my most honest opinion in a spoiler-free way. If you feel anything in my review is a spoiler and is not already hidden in spoiler brackets please let me know. Thank you.

This one was a bit hard for me to rate. I love this series so much, but this book took a while to get into, and even afterward, nothing really happened until the very end of the book, which ended on a cliffhanger as always. So despite my love of the series and intense emotions at the end of the book. I feel it only fair to give it a 4 star instead of a 5 this time.

Don't get me wrong though. Still a great book. The entire series has taken a different direction than I thought it would when I read the first book. Not in a bad way, just different. I love all of the characters, and not just the four main characters either. Also Oliver, Amelie, Sam, and Myrnin.

I don't know how Claire survives. She is almost always a target, and she trusts people way too easily, even those that have proven themselves untrustworthy. But she is brave and has a good heart, showing compassion for those that really don't deserve it in my opinion.

If you have read any of my other reviews on this series I have mentioned before how this book reads like a TV drama series, and I still think it would have made a great one. As it is I have down and 10 more to go, and I can't wait to see how the lives in Moranville progresses. ( )

Another suspenseful installment of the Morganville series. This book is obviously building to the climax of the current conflict, which was why I felt it had a lot of buildup without quite as much action. But character interaction and suspense made up for that pretty well.

The arrival and rise to power of the vicious vampire Bishop has forced all of Morganville to take sides. But this time the lines aren't drawn between human and vampire; the two groups mingle warily in order to either protect the town or conquer it. Claire's connection to the defending leader, Amelie, means she and her friends are key players in the deadly game being conducted. And of course, unpredictable variables keep throwing off any plans that can be laid; Shane's cruel father, the rebelling humans of the town, and the half-mad half-brilliant Myrnin, who is still one of the greatest characters of the series in my opinion.

And of course, Claire lands herself in yet more terrible predicaments that will require trust, sacrifice, and desperate measures to deal with. The characters are still consistant, the story still fresh, and the cliffhanger still maddening. I hope to get the next book soon to watch the steadily building conflict finally play out.

Lord of Misrule was a filler book, IMO. Until the very end, (which was a cliff-hanger, of course) nothing much was really going on. There's a battle for control of Morganville going on between Amelie and her father, Bishop. The gang is doing what they can to help Amelie. That's about it really. ( )

Felt like there was too much differing stuff shoved into this book. Still, I wanna know what happens next - that's pretty much my whole reason for reading this series. The author's Weather Wardens series is at least fun. ( )

These books just keep getting more intense! Imagine a world where vampires rule the town you live in...then imagine another group of vampires wants to take over. What do you do? Do you join the fight or stay out of it and hope they kill each other off? Such an interesting spin to take these characters through. We get to see what choices our four friends make as well as some of the others we've come to know in Morganville. The book ends on a cliffhanger again, so be sure to have the next book ready...I know I can't wait to get started!

I think these books are great for young adult and adult readers of the paranormal genre, especially those who love to read vampire stories. ( )
