In the small college town of Morganville, vampires and humans lived in (relative) peace - until all the rules got rewritten when the evil vampire Bishop arrived, looking for the lost book of vampire secrets. He's kept a death grip on the town ever since. Now an underground resistance is brewing, and in order to contain it, Bishop must go to even greater lengths.

He vows to obliterate the town and all its inhabitants - the living and the undead. Claire Danvers and her friends are the only ones who stand in his way. But even if they defeat Bishop, will the vampires ever be content to go back to the old rules, after having such a taste of power?

My Thoughts
I am totally addicted to this series! It just gets even better book by book. Cain does a great job of continuing the action and giving us unexpected events.

In this book, everything is really going on fast. It is totally fast paced.  Also, Bishop plays his final move as the residents of Morganville hurry to take their stand. I cannot stand Bishop. He is so evil! But, Claire however, becomes a pawn in Amelie's and Bishop's game. I feel sorry for Claire she's stuck right in the middle not knowing how to play the game.

Claire and Shane. What can I say except... Finally! Their relationship definetly got stronger now! I love all their moments. Shane is just awesome as always and I love how he loves Claire as much as she loves him. Although, he never seems to admit it :(

I have always had mixed thoughts on Myrin. Sometimes he's bad and sometimes he's good. But, I love he's character and all his funny comments! He gives everything a touch of sarcasm and sometimes, it can be funny :)

All in all, another fantastic book. As always. I'm eagerly awaiting for the release of the next book- Fade out!
