Official summary: "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."

How I obtained the book: Bought for $1.70 at used book store

Memorable quotes:
  • "You don't want to make yourself too available for snack attacks. Remember, we're vending machines with legs." ~ Hannah to Claire
  • "You should meet my boyfriend. You two are both masters of understatement." ~ Claire to Hannah
  • "I've learned through my life ... sometime, somewhere, life always comes to a fight, and peace always comes to an end." ~ Amelie
  • "(Claire) went to rescue a crazy vampire from an evil one." 
  • "Vampires fought in silence."
  • "You look like you escape from a Victorian brothel. One that ... specialized." ~ Oliver to Myrnin about his clothing
  • "Terror Aerobics. Just wait until they get it at the gym. It'll be bigger than Pilates." ~ Eve
  • "Living in Morganville really is combat training." ~ Eve
  • "That's Gramma. God forbid we should mess up her house while the war's going on." ~ Hannah about Gramma Day
  • "(Oliver's) named you heir apparent to the Apocolypse. Congratulations." ~ Dean Wallace
    "Yeah, it's one hell of a field promotion." ~ Richard
  • "It was the storybook kind of love, the kind that ignored things like practicality and danger, and never changed or died." ~ Claire about the love between Sam and Amelie
  • "Be grateful I'm not leaving you as an after-dinner mint on (Myrnin's) pillow" ~ Shane to Monica
  • "Even riots don't like rain." ~ Richard
  • "Myrnin? Oh yeah. He did a Batman and took off into the night. What is with that guy, Claire? If he was a superhero, he'd be Bipolar Man." ~ Eve
  • "I think Bishop's willing to let humans do his dirty work for him, and then sweep in to make himself lord and master on the ashes." ~ Richard 
  • "You're a vamp. In case you haven't checked the mirror lately." ~ Shane to Michael 
  • "Life is a work in progress. My mom used to say that. I'm kind of a fixer-upper." ~ Shane 
  • "Silence, or be silenced. When I want to know your opinion, I'll consult your entrails." ~ Bishop to Eve

My commentary:
  • "Lord of Misrule" is definitely an appropriate way to describe Bishop. It's perfect actually. 
  • There was an episode of the TV show "Friends" in which the character of Joey was reading a book and got so scared that he put the book in his freezer. It is completely ridiculous and illogical, but reading this series, I suddenly understand the feeling. I love the books... totally love them... but some part of me is terrified of what's happening and what's ahead. It's freaky. I want to put the books in my freezer so I can be safe from them
