Without the evil vampire Bishop ruling over the town of Morganville, the resident vampires have made major concessions to the human population. With their newfound freedoms, Claire Danvers and her friends are almost starting to feel comfortable again…

Now Claire can actually concentrate on her studies, and her friend Eve joins the local theatre company. But when one of Eve’s castmates goes missing after starting work on a short documentary, Eve suspects the worst. Claire and Eve soon realize that this film project, whose subject is the vampires themselves, is a whole lot bigger—and way more dangerous—than anyone suspected.

In this seventh installment, things are looking up for our friends in Morganville. Bishop’s gone. Michael’s got a major gig and the possibility of a record deal. Eve’s been cast in the town play and picked up a new friend, Kim. Shane’s finally got himself a job and no one has put him in the hospital recently. And Claire…well, she’s got an awful sunburn and is being used as a pawn in another game of power.

After the nicely wrapped up ending of Carpe Corpus I was curious where the series would go. With Bishop no longer around to take over, it’s the resident vampires who try to claim control. They see Amelie as weak, and want to take Morganville from her. If that happens, it’ll no longer be a town where vampires and humans live in relative harmony. Of course Claire can’t let that happen!

My favorite thing about these books are that they’re short. Not that I don’t always want more, but there’s nothing superfluous that slows down the story. It makes it super easy to get lost in the book and there’s always something happening to Claire and Co. However, this is also makes it obvious that any new character must be up to something, as is the case for Kim. Of course I was suspicious of her from the very beginning, but I was shocked to find out what she was really doing in Morganville.

This is probably my favorite of the books so far. It’s not the most action packed, but it had plenty to keep me entertained. There’s more Mrynin, which is always awesome. Plus there’s more Ada, and she has seriously lost her mind! After that ending I cannot wait to get my hands on Kiss of Death. Things are certainly changing in Morganville!
