Rating: 4 out of 5
In the town of Morganville, vampires and humans have learnt to live in relative peace. Claire Danvers knows that after dark, her homework can take a backseat to staying alive. But this tenuous harmony is turned on its head with the arrival of Mr Bishop.
Bad to the bone, the ancient old-school vampire cares nothing about keeping the peace; staying at the top of the food chain is enough. What he wants from the town's living and dead is unthinkably sinister. It's only at a formal ball attended by vampires and their human dates that Claire realises Bishop's plan - and the elaborately evil trap he's set for the warm-blooded souls of Morganville...
I'm not going to say too much about this book, I have noticed that my previous reviews are starting to contain spoilers, which I don't want to do. I will say that this is another page turner with the same level of character development that the other books had.
I am still finding the character of Claire Danvers to be very intriguing, especially in this book. Claire seems to have developed an attachment to the Glass House that allows her to do something that only the owner can do.
I will say that I found the build up to the celebration a little bit slow, but, what happens at the celebration really makes this book gripping and again we are left on a cliffhanger.
Again I highly recommend this book and this series.
