The Morganville Vampires series is one of those that regardless if there are hundreds books in the series, I'm going to read them all. They're a guilty pleasure for me, and thankfully this train seems to still be plowing ahead on all cylinders. This far into the series, it's hard to give a detailed review without giving spoilers away for the other twelve books. I will say that the writing is just as engrossing as it was with the first book. Once again, Caine really knows how to bring the drama and keep her readers enthralled and amused.
After the parasitic creatures known to the world as the draug are destroyed, the vampires are out of hiding and doing whatever they want and whenever they want. The peaceful coexistence the vampires and humans have known is being threatened. Bitter Blood brings in a new element that potentially could expose and and drive the newly open vampire lifestyle back into the shadows; a camera crew looking for ghosts comes into the town just as the humans in the town are uprising to fight for their rights.
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.
