Carpe Corpus (The Morganville Vampires #6)
In the small college town of Morganville, an underground resistance to evil vampire Bishop 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.
In this book, Bishop’s rule comes to an endgame and the people of Morganville, humans and vampires, make a move to take back their town. Claire faces her most challenging moments as she becomes the pawn between both Amelie and Bishop. Her loyal friends, Shane, Michael and Eve are never far o...more
That said, i realise that this book came out about two months ago. I know... i know because i bought it the day it came out.
It's not that it took me two months to read a 200 page book. It's just that if i own a book i do not read it. I don't know why. And it bugs me. But it's the sad truth.
That said, this was, of course, excellent. It was probably the first Morganville book i've read that had an end...more
The. End. Phew. At least it's over. I have to say, it was a lot of build-up for nothing. I wasn't nearly as impressed as I thought I'd be.
What can I say about this series? Half of the books were filler, with Claire running around from place to place and never being included in the actually interesting stuff. Badass characters like Amelie and Myrnin were mostly ignored, because of the Claire/Shane, Eve/Michael teenage love drama. The only interesting...more
Claire and her friends are divided over the recent events in Morganville. Shane's locked up with his father. Michael's working for the evil Bishop along with Claire - while Eve is furious with both of them.
Claire needs to believe the Myrnin has a plan, but she's not sure she can actually trust him.
Bishop is running the town and pushing it close to ruin. He doesn't care about any of the citizens. Claire realizes that Amelie hasn't gone into the shad...more
Yeah, even though I've been having a marathon of MV recently I wasn't quite a fan before. They've been lying around for ages and I read them because I was bored and would have had absolutely no qualms about dropping them the second something else catches my attention. The previous books were entertaining and the chara...more
The characters are perfection every book. I love how Claire gets stronger and stronger, she has really learned how to hold her own. Mrynin, oh my gawd!...more
The Morganville Vampire books are unlike any other vampire books out there. With a lot of vampire type romance books to choose from, The Morganville Vampire series is a whole lot more. Sure you have a little bit of the romance aspect going on, which for me is something I really enjoy, but it's also an action packed, thriller full of suspense and mystery. I mean you never know what is going down in Morganville, and I wouldn't have it any other wa...more
I have to say that I have waited for page 120 & 121 patiently and I was totally giddy! Now,...more
Claire is finally seventeen but nothing is like she expected it to be; Michael is working for Bishop, Eve hates her, Shane is locked up in a cell and she is the evil minion of Bishop. Myrnin had betrayed them when he sold them all to Bishop and now Morganville is a hunting ground where any human is prey. Bishop isn't exactly interested in ruling but destroying all and anything. Claire just wants to save Shane but she can't do it by herself but who can she trust now that th...more
(Also, while I've been going all over Texas this past week, I am so happy I didn't e...more
Of course, there is a resistance. Amelie is still alive...more
Carpe Corpus is book 6 in my new favorite series, The Morganville Vampires. It gave us some things that we have been wanting. It feels good to say I was pretty satisfied with them except one. But given how Lord of Misrule ended, I was scared to this because it seemed like the end of the world for our great group of friends. But one thing I can always count on, a town full of power-hungry (an...more
Ready yourself for back-to-back reviews. Claire has been magically enslaved to Bishop and Amelie is nowhere to be found. Things are nearing a br...more
Bishop is out for blood – anyone’s blood. Morganville is headed for a full-scale war, and poor little Claire is right in the thick of it. With Amelie out of action, Claire...more
And Monica...was Monica. Still...more
No surprise to anyone should be that Myrnin remains my favorite character. There's something deliciously wonderf...more
I liked how Richard and Hannah have stepped up on the human side and done what they can to make people safe. I also love seeing Claire's parents argue about sending her to Morganville. Seems like Dad was right, but Mom couldn't cut the apron strings just yet. I also like to see then try to parent Claire when she is...more
As the sixth book in the serie...more
Carpe Corpus is book six in Rachel Caine's Morganville Vampires series, and while it's the first of the lot that I've read, I had no problem picking up the story and being drawn in by the story and characters.
Carpe Corpus opens with Claire Danvers' 17th birthday party, which should have been with her friends in the Glass House, where she's lived since enrolling in college in Morg...more
Morganville represents a community that had come under the rule of vampires. One rather poignant fact--the vampires are suffering from some sort of illness, and the population of vamp...more

“I know,” he said, and kissed the back of her hand. “We’ll fix it. Get some sleep.”
“Night,” she said, and watched him walk toward the door. “Hey. How’d you get in?”
He wiggled his fingers at her in a spooky oogie-boogie pantomime. “I’m a vampire. I have secret powers ,” he said with a full-on fake Transylvanian accent, which he dropped to say, “Actually, your mom let me in.”
“Seriously? My mom? Let you in my room? In the middle of the night?”
He shrugged. “Moms like me.”
He gave her a full-on Hollywood grin, and slipped out the door.”
