Review Time! I met Rachel Caine a few while back when she flew all the way to Australia for her Bite Tour! Penguin not only invited me to a lovely breakfast with her but provided me with copies of every book in the Morganville series up to date! So I would like to thank Penguin for the review copy!
(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.
The Short Story ? - My favourite book in the series so far! The arrival of Mr. Bishop has stirred up some chaos in the quiet town of Morganville. Lot's of action and romantic tension between our favourite couples. Gripping plot with non-stop action, Dark secrets to be revealed and again, another fantastic installment in an awesome vampire series!
The Long Story ? - I love reading novels full of action and romance and for the most part, it's hard to get the best of both worlds. I end up with either a novel with lot's of romance and little romance or a novel with fantastic romance with little action. What I loved about Feast of Fools is that it was both action-packed and romantic :P
We quite a bit of development in relationships between the characters. Shane and Claire are as cute as ever, lots romance between the two and they've definitely grown alot closer since we were first introduced to them, for one, Shane is not denying his feelings for Claire anymore. Claire and Amelie have grown closer as well, I do think that Amelie has started to care for Claire which is nice and Eve and Michael are just ...together. In all even with the town in chaos, love never fails.
The highlight of Feast of Fools would be the brilliant plot. Unlike the first three novels, the plot is based around Morganville itself because of the arrival of Mr. Bishop which is Amelie's father. I have to say I prefer this kind of plot to the usual Claire based plot. It's alot more exciting as there is alot more is at stake :P ( pun intended). There's plenty of action and I was blown away by Rachel's creativity, I don't know how she comes up with half of all these things! Most interesting plot up to date, beautifully written and not a boring moment!
If you haven't read The Morganville Vampires yet, I strongly urge you to pick up a copy! It's not like any other vampire series I have read. Extremely engrossing and captivating, it's definitely a OSR ( one-sitting-read). It's a novel to be enjoyed by all readers of all ages!
Rating - 5/5
