In the fourth book so far (out of a guaranteed 13 [!!!] novel series), there's a bit of a mix-up to the well-tread paths these stories all seem to take: danger/uncertainty in Morganville, such trouble that only Claire and her rag-tag band of misfits can fix. In Feast of Fools an unforeseen and completely horrifying turn of events occurs: Claire's parents move to vampire-infested Morganville. Along with the unexpected arrival of Claire's controlling parents comes the appearance of Amelie's "father", Mr. Bishop, in town as well. Tensions are high between all the characters in such uncertain times. For Bishop isn't a civilized nor modern bloodsucker like previously seen in the small Texas town, but a complete horror from nightmares of the past. The tenuous truce Amelie and the humans have eked out in Morganville will feel the strain of his presence in their town. Mr. Bishop elevates the menace and danger in these novels from a 5 to an 11, and makes for an interesting, if repugnant, antagonist for Claire/Amelie. Read the rest right here on my blog.
