Carpe Corpus is the sixth book in the Morganville Vampires series by Rachel Caine. From the back cover.~
Welcome to Morganville, Texas. Don’t stay out after dark.
In the small college town of Morganville, vampires and humans lived in (relative) peace – until all the rules got rewritten when evil vampire Bishop arrived, looking for the lost book of vampire secrets. He’s kept a death grip on the town ever since.
Now an underground resistance is brewing, and in order to contain it, Bishop must go to even greater lengths. He vows to obliterate the town and all its inhabitants-the living and the undead. Claire Danvers and her friends are the only ones who stand in her way. But even if they defeat Bishop, will the vampires be content to go back to the old rules after having had such a taste of power?
Carpe Corpus is another winner in the Morganville Vampire series. Claire and her friends just trying to survive since Bishop took over Morganville, Texas. Bishop is running the city of Morganville as a dictator. The vampires pretty much have free reign to do what they want to do, while the humans are just trying to make it through each day. Claire and her friends must once again work behind the scenes to keep everyone in Morganville safe. Of course to all work together, they must first find a way to break Shane out of jail. They must also make up with Eve, since she is so angry with everyone for their allegiance to Bishop, or at least their appearance of an allegiance to Bishop.
I've love the Morganville Vampires series since I read the very first book. I look forward to more books in this series. Fade Out is the seventh book in this series, and is scheduled for release on November 3, 2009.
