For years, the human and vampire residents of Morganville, Texas, have managed to co-exist in peace. But now that the threat to the vampires has been defeated, the human residents are learning that the gravest danger they face is the enemy within…

Thanks to the eradication of the parasitic creatures known as the draug, the vampires of Morganville have been freed of their usual constraints. With the vampires indulging their every whim, the town’s human population is determined to hold on to their lives by taking up arms. But college student Claire Danvers isn’t about to take sides, considering she has ties to both the humans and the vampires.

To make matters worse, a television show comes to Morganville looking for ghosts, just as vampire and human politics collide. Now, Claire and her friends have to figure out how to keep the peace without ending up on the nightly news… or worse.

Well Morganville fans we are in the 13th book now. Some may be wondering is this book as awesome as the beginning books and the answer is HELL YES! I don't know how Rachel Caine does it but every single book in this series totally rocks my socks off!

Bitter Blood has that same edge of your seat, roller coaster of emotions, jumping for joy, bringing you to tears sort of ride we know and love in this series. Its sometimes bitter sweet reading a book early because now I have to wait that much longer for the next book.

As you seen for the last book Morganville is changing and changing for the worse. Oliver seems to have some kind of mind control over Amelia and he is taking Morganville down. The vampires even are allowed one kill a year without penalty. The humans have to carry around cards with their blood types. Things are going down fast. And the Glass House Gang isn't fairing up too good either. Both the vamps and humans are trying to bring them down thanks to Eve and Michaels marriage. The story line was intense. The gangs life is more on the line then ever. Things are also getting complicated in the house with their new friendly ghost roommate.

Oh gosh I want to go into the story so bad. Its hard reading a book when you don't know anyone else that has read it. There are things I want to talk about. Like can you believe "insert name" kissed "insert name" I so thought "insert name" was going to walk in. Then to top it off "insert name" full on sticks their tongue in "inserts name" mouth and causes all sorts of trouble. Not to mention who Captain Obvious turns out to be. Then the ending!! What is going to happen now. How is it going to be Morganville with this happening?

There is so much to talk about but so little time. I guess we know why this is my favorite YA series! I am going to be so mad that I left so much out but I guess that is why you should all read the book. There is no way to touch base with it all. This is another fantastic addition to the series. If you haven't started it yet then you really really need to!

  1. I've been tempted to try this series but because it's YA I've been putting it off.

    1. This is my favorite YA series. Its not to YA typical. Its worth the read. Some ya series I grow out of when it goes on for years but not this one. All the books have been 4 or 5 stars for me.

  2. I still haven't read this book yet. But I'm looking forward to it. And @Jennifer, this series is awesome. You should definitely try it out.
