Review: Feast of Fools by Rachel Caine

Feast of Fools (Morganville Vampires #4) by Rachel Caine
Synopsis (Goodreads):
The wait is over. dig into the feast...

In the town of Morganville, vampires and humans live in relative peace. Student Claire Danvers has never been convinced, though, especially with the arrival of Mr. Bishop, an ancient, old-school vampire who cares nothing about harmony. What he wants from the town's living and its dead is unthinkably sinister. It's only at a formal ball, attended by vampires and their human dates, that Claire realizes the elaborately evil trap he's set for Morganville.
My Thoughts: Man, this book was a tough read at the end. Not in the sense of "it was boring and I didn't want to finish it", either. More like a "OMG! OMG! OMG! ALL THIS STUFF IS HAPPENING AND IT'S MAKING ME FEEEEEEEL THINGS AND I THINK I MIGHT NEED TO PUT THE BOOK DOWN BEFORE MY HEAD EXPLODES!" sort of way. *collapses*

So. Bishop's in town. He's nasty and he wants blood and he's not into Amelie's ideas of blood donations and all that. Nope. He wants to hunt. Claire, as it turns out, isn't down with that. As we've come to expect, she stands up when no one else is willing to and tells those around her that it's not cool and it wasn't going to happen. I like that about Claire. She doesn't take the easy path. Ever. She fights for the things she believes in. She fights when everyone around her tells her that it's useless. She fights for her friends and family and for the people she doesn't know. Sometimes it lands her in a heap of trouble but she isn't willing to give up. *thumbs up* to Claire and her sense of morals.

Enough about Claire, though. We got some quality manic-Myrnin time in this book. LOVE THAT VAMP! He's so ridiculously unpredictable. I love his interactions with Claire. I love that his moods are all over the place. I love that you never know if you're going to get cold, dangerous Myrnin or sweet, intelligent Myrnin. I think I could read a Myrnin-centric book and be a very happy girl.

The reread marches on and I'm still loving it!
