Review: Feast of Fools

Feast of Fools by Rachel Caine
(The Morganville Vampires, #4)

  Genre: YA, urban fantasy
  Creatures: vampires
  First published: 2008
  Find it: Goodreads, The bookdepository

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.
Feast of Fools is the fourth chapter in The Morganville Vampires series.

The story starts exactly where it finished in Midnight Alley: Bishop and his fellows are in Glass House and they aren’t kindly visitors. Fortunately, Amelie and Oliver arrive, trying to solve the problem: Bishop is really powerfull and he belongs to the “old school”, he doesn’t want to live with humans, he prefers eating them and playing with their lives. What can Amelie do?! She arranges a ball to welcome Bishop… or maybe to defeat him?

Feast of Fools, as the previous books in this series, is really action packed and a quick read. I love the writing style of Rachel Caine, simple and clean, because she is able to make you feel as if you were one of Morganville citizens and Claire, Shane, Michael and Eve were your best friends, people you know since you were born.  

I love the characters of Amelie and Michael, but the one I really die for is Myrnin, maybe because I love fools and foolish things! I really hate Monica, she is such a stupid girl, while Oliver acquired some points in this book.

The best part is obviously the one of the ball while I really hated… the end! It’s a terrible cliffhanger and I want to read the nest book!
