Book Review: Lord of Misrule by Rachel Caine

Lord of Misrule front coverLord of Misrule is the fifth book in the Morganville Vampires series by Rachel Caine.

Since the arrival of Mr Bishop and his group of vampires to Morganville, Texas, the town where humans and vampires coexist in relative harmony, things have been anything but harmonious.  But when vampires start showing signs of odd behaviour, something strange, or rather, something beyond the usual strange that passes for normal in Morganville, seems to be afoot.

And that can only mean one thing.  Trouble for Claire Danvers and the other residents of the Glass House.

Bishop is now after complete control of Morganville and he wants all the residents to swear allegiance to him, and so the different factions in the town are gearing up for some kind of decisive, covert action.  To make matters worse, the biggest storm the region has seen in years is heading their way.

It’s safe to say that it is not a great time to be a resident of this little Texan town…

Lord of Misrule is another great instalment in this interesting paranormal series.  This book manages to maintain the suspense, interest and pace of the previous books.  There is more action in this book than the others so far, and we meet more inhabitants of the town as the scope of the story has widened beyond the coffee shop, the Glass house and the university.

As I have mentioned before, these books are aimed at a Young Adult audience.  There is enough description provided within the story to move it along at a fast enough pace without getting bogged down with excess detail, whilst providing a number of plot twists to keep the reader engaged.  Of course, those older than the prospective audience will find these books provide a quick, entertaining read, if the Young Adult paranormal genre is one they are interested in.

I will soon be posting the review of the sixth book in the Morganville Vampires series, Carpe Corpus.
