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.
Possible spoilers for books 1 (Glass Houses), 2 (The Dead Girl's Dance), 3 (Midnight Alley) and 4 (Feast of Fools). This is book 5 in the series, if you have come here for a review you probably know whats been going on by now.
I don't even know where to begin. I feel as if It's kind of wrong to talk about Lord of Misrule without talking about Carpe Corpus, almost as if the two should go together. But alas I shall try to give you a hint as if this book is worth your money.
ITS SO WORTH YOUR MONEY. *hint hint* We pick up right where we left off on Feast of Fools. Myrnin has been kidnapped and it's Claire's, and Amelie's, job to rescue the poor old crazy vampire. Everybody has a job to do in this installment. Eve shall defend Common Grounds with Oliver, Shane must defend the BloodMobile (though he absolutely hates it) plus the oh so holy book (why don't they burn the damn thing already?) and Michael needs to go to the university and protect the oblivious college students.
Battle strategies are being put into place, Morganville is burning to the ground, and mother nature, who did not want to be left out of the festivities, has also decided to invite herself to this party and added a hell of a storm to be taken place in a few days (by the end of the book). I just think she is trying to help with the fire, but that's just me. A lot of small but important things happen in this book, also some MAJOR things happen. WAR WAR WAR. Also, thank you to Rachel Caine for so thoroughly catching me off guard and delivering that super mega twist at the end of the novel. It's juicy all right.
What you have to understand about Morganville is that nothing is how it seems, and you can never know what it's going to happen next. Because EVERYTHING is a possibility, and you just might not like the outcome. I really enjoyed this book, and right after this one I quickly picked up Carpe Corpus (which I have already finished).
Myrnin is still my favorite character. TEAM MYRNIN.
I kind of finished it on 9/14 but just today wrote the review xD
