Feast of Fools (The Morganville Vampires #4)
In Rachel Caine's fourth Morganville Vampires novel, the arrival of an old-school vampire to Claire Danvers's college town threatens the relative harmony that exists between the living and the dead.
Ok. Let me begin with the negative stuff because I really want to be done with it asap and then go on about how amazing this book was.
We get such an awesome plot and characters, would it be too much to ask for some consistency in the world building too? At first, vampires needed an invitation to enter the Glass House. I get that. Then, the humans needed an invitation instead. I get that too. Now everybody’s strolling in and out like nobody’s business and it’s driving me nuts!
Also, I know that wr ...more
After having to fight for their lives with crazy vampires and even crazier anti-vampire fanatics nothing should be able to scare our heroes anymore, until a strange vampire walks through their door. A vampire so bad that even the worst vampires in Morganville seem to be afraid of, one who claims to be Amelie's father. Who knew the Ice Queen actually had family that was even scarier than her?
The vampire isn't alone. He has with him 2 extra vampires way too dangerous ...more
Well Feast of Fools, definitely isn't a filler book. Although slow in the middle, it was probably the best one yet! Do these just keep getting better? Hmm...interesting.
I loved every minute of this one. I think it's safe to say I love Myrnin more now, ...more
In this book, three ...more
At the end of MIDNIGHT ALLEY, the foursome living in the Glass House gets some unexpected visitors in the form of Claire’s parents and (in Buffy the Vampire Slayer Speak) the Big Bad - Mr. Bishop A.K.A. Amelie’s “father.” With him in town there has to be tro ...more
With all books in a series I try to keep my reviews a bit vague as I don't want to add much in that would spoil things but with this particular book there wasn't much to even talk about. Easily the slowest ...more
I really enjoy anything that Rachel Caine writes. All ...more
This book has the same romantic tension between Claire and Shane- along with some sinister events happening in the town of Morganville.
Morganville is a town where vampires live freely among humans- with humans being kept (for lack of a better word) by various vampires. Some are good, most are bad, and all the humans are doing is trying to survive!
A fun installment that has quite a cliff-ha ...more
In the fourth book we find out more of the secrets of Morganville and find out what Bishop wants. There is never a moment of peace but that makes for one fantastic read. The characters are brilliant as always and it was good to see Myrnin was in this book. I love Claire and Shane's relationship, their moments together always bring a smile to my face.
Awesome series. A must read!
This was an okay story, but I have to admit that I was bored for the majority of it.
The main characters in this were all okay, although once again Claire was fairly happy to walk head-first into danger without a care. It was also a little frustrating when the gang automatically thought that Michael would be able to protect them – he’s the youngest vampire for pity’s sake!
The storyline in this just didn’t really interest me. Again it took place over a relativel ...more

Wow I seem to be giving out Maura's Choice a lot. That's sort of funny, but really I haven't read any books so far that I haven't enjoy thoroughly. But if I have to give a 4 stars to any books in the Morganville Vampire Series, it would have to be Feast of Fools. Anyways for anyone who knows me, you'll know that my favorite book series of all time is Morganville Vampire Series. I just love all the action, sarcasm, and Rachel Caine's clever writing. What can I say the whole book series is fast pa ...more
I mean, this book was nonstop action. I literally found every idle moment I could to crack open FoF and devour as many words as I could.
Amelie's father is a mean, relentless, cold-blooded man, and will apparently stop at nothing to claim that which he wants.
Watching Claire mature is something so rare in teen novels... and really, in any novel. It seems so man ...more
Truly, Morganville goes to hell in a handbasket in this volume when Amelie's Father comes to town. He's a douche. So are the vamps he brings with him. Totally hate that bitch Ysandre and her constant come-ons to Shane. Francois is no better.
Jason---will someone kill this guy alre ...more
Claire’s parents have moved into town and want her to move in with them; however, (on top of her worrying about their safety in a place filled with vampires) she has to tell them that she wants to stay in the Glass house instead. However an ancient vampire, Mr Bishop, has arrived in town and is having a party and Morganville will soon realise that the vampires they already have are not as bad as they could be. This ...more
Tension, mystery and bite-your-nails laugh-out-loud situations...
"No reason. I like my ladies with a pulse.”
Sooo.... wow... again (don't hate me) I've read it in one sitting, I can't help it. Once you start it sucks you in and just when you are about to take a break, something outrageous happens and you sit your lovely butt back down and continue with the story.
I'm not going to trouble you too much with the plot as to not to reveal too much of the storyline.
Mysterious Mr ...more
In this one we have new players in town. Amelie's dad and his entourage come in and take a special interest in Claire and the Glass House. They were scary and imposi ...more
amazing. Like, "keep you on the edge of your seat and your pulse racing" good.
I couldn't turn the pages quick enough. I absolutely devoured and LOVED this one.
Shane, Claire, Michael and Eve. They can't catch a break. I can't wait for them to get some wins!
I nearly woke up the whole house laughing!
Claire is still sixteen-almost seventeen-and has just found out that her parents have moved to Morganville, something that really horrifies Claire. Here she thought they were safe in another part of Texas, only to have them move to what has to be the scariest place on ...more
Feast of Fools was an okay read, but it started to drag after a few chapters.
The main characters could all be stupid at times, and i was often annoyed by them.
I really can't see why i loved them so much when i first read the series. They're annoying, stupid, and boring.
The one person that has lived up to my past thoughts are Monica, but that isn't in a good way.
She gets into everyone's business, she's a bitch, and she's defiantly the most annoying character in the book!
Whoever said "third times the charm" needs to reevaluate his/hers life choices and recognise that the fourth time needs to be celebrated too because THIS BOOK, MA ...more

Stake him right in the heart, shove garlic up his ass, and-and-"
And what?" (Michael)
When did you get home?" Claire demanded.
Apparently just in time to hear my funeral plans. I especially like the garlic up the ass. It's...different.”
"I'm thinking we have about fifteen vampires and no blood," Claire said. "Is that it?"
"No, I was thinking we're out of chips. Of course that's what I was thinking.”
