Lord of Misrule (The Morganville Vampires #5) by Rachel Caine

I've come to the end of the Morganville Vampires series books that I bought a while back so I suppose I will need to go buy the rest of the series because they are just that good!  Here is the cover and Goodreads blurb for Lord of Misrule:

In the college town of Morganville, vampires and humans coexist in (relatively) bloodless harmony. Then comes Bishop, the master vampire who threatens to abolish all order, revive the forces of the evil dead, and let chaos rule. But Bishop isn't the only threat.

Violent black cyclone clouds hover, promising a storm of devastating proportions as student Claire Danvers and her friends prepare to defend Morganville against elements both natural and unnatural.

The worst part of this one is the ending.  Such a crazy cliffhanger!  I hate those!  The main focus of this book is the battle for control of Morganville between Amelie and Bishop.  I can't say that vampires being in charge at all is a good thing but Amelie would be better than Bishop.  Mernyn manages even fewer moments of lucidity in this book as well so that adds to the chaos.  The town is a mess and some of the humans are using the chaos to cause civil unrest.  They plan to sneak in and take out the vampires while the vampires are too busy fighting each other to watch their backs.  It is a dangerous time for all of the humans and vampires in Morganville.  There is a fair amount of interaction between Claire and the vampires.  She is working hard on the things that Amelie needs done.  In doing that, Clare needs to decide how she feels about Amelie and the system in Morganville.  Claire and Shane have worked things out some from where they ended the last book.  All in all this was a good read and I really want to read more from this series.

You can find out more about Rachel Caine and her work on her website.  There is a website for the series as well as a Tumblr and you can click here to find it on Goodreads.  Rachel Caine can also be found on Facebook and Twitter.  I give Lord of Misrule 3 Fairies for a great story but a slow moving one.
